Product Description

When faced with the prospect of burnout in her wedding photography business, Stacey Owen’s first thought was to hire an assistant. After realizing that just one person would never be able to handle the diversity of tasks on her to-do list, she founded the company Pepper. More than just an outsourcing service, this women-run agency is on a mission to help creative entrepreneurs take the “BS” out of business stuff.

We recently caught up with Owen for an extended Zoom chat to learn more about the “Peppersphere” and its many exciting projects. Read all about it below, and then jump to Part 2 of our Q&A to get the scoop on Conference + Chill (C+C). This virtual photography gathering will next be held on Sunday, March 21, and will feature talks by six groundbreaking Women in Photography, in celebration of Women’s History Month.

Jill Waterman: You're currently based in Kamloops, British Columbia. Are you originally from there?

Stacey Owen: No, I'm originally from the Yukon. I grew up in a little town called Dawson City, and spent my high school years in Whitehorse. My family's all still there, but I moved to Kamloops about 12 years ago.

What's your photography background, and when did you first pick up a camera?

My background is similar to most photographers; you start off as a hobby. My dad went to a documentary film school, so there were always cameras around the house and photography was encouraged in a fun, joyful, playful way. I bought my first film camera as a young adult; I think it was a Nikon F2. And then I got a crop sensor digital camera, like a Nikon 300, which I loved. Back in 2013 or 2014, my neighbor asked me to shoot her son's wedding, just because I took good photos. And I said, “No, I shouldn’t be shooting anybody's wedding.” I had no idea what I was doing, so it was terrifying. But I ended up second shooting that wedding, and I became really good friends with the main shooter. She's now one of my absolute best friends.
