Inspiring Business Owner Shares His Key To Success

Capturing everyday moments is something that Broadcast Major, Mason Brighton, knows all too well. Brighton is a photographer who started his own photo and video business with a couple friends toward the end of last year. The business offers media services to local corporations, as well as for special venues and events. Brighton’s photo process always begins with identifying the composition of what he sees, such as: foreground, background, and what’s in focus. He says anyone can start a business, and that self-motivation, determination, and surrounding yourself with like-minded individuals are the keys  to starting a successful business. The process of building his own business has been tough at times, but overall has been a worthwhile experience for Mason.

The sun will come out to play most days during the week from Monday, April 23 to Sunday, April 29 but showers and thunderstorms may damper the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex by the weekend.

Temperatures will stay in the upper 70’s during the daytime and dip to the 50’s by nighttime so dress light and maybe grab a jacket for when the sun goes down.
