We had the good fortune of connecting with Paige Lombardi and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Paige, what do you attribute your success to?
The most important factor behind my success in my business, is my passion. I love what I do and shows.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’m so lucky to say that I learned from a very young age that videography is my passion. I had books upon books on how to start your own videography business, and make professional looking videos. I would say that’s what sets me apart from others my age. I have years of experience, although not many would expect that. Getting to where I am today professionally was not easy. The main challenge being, I was too nervous to share my art, thinking no one would care for it. To anyone feeling the same way I felt, please know letting that fear go is so important. Through some trial and error, I found that to succeed it is important to go out of your comfort zone.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
To anyone visiting flagstaff, I would suggest breakfast at The Toasted Owl. Take a walk around Buffalo park (Especially if the sunflowers are out)! For dinner and drinks, I would suggest walking around downtown. There are so many good places to eat and enjoy live music. At some point during your visit, you are gonna want to check out Flag Tag AZ! I had a blast axe throwing there!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I knew videography was my passion since I was very young. I was told by many that my plan was unrealistic, and I needed a backup plan. My dad however encouraged me. He saw my passion, and taught me the importance of chasing my dreams. I don’t know where I would be in my business without his encouragement.
