CJ Wolfe, a Gwynedd Mercy University graduate, left his reliable position as a financial adviser during the pandemic to follow his passion and focus on photography and videography at his recently open Immortal Vision Studio, writes Damichael Cole for The Philadelphia Inquirer.

“My manager told me that there’s no money in photography, but he didn’t know my vision,” said Wolfe.

His vision was born while he was attending the Gwynedd Valley university after a friend lent him his camera.

During one of his gigs, he met Eagles’ Will Parks who started hiring him to take pictures at his family and community events. By the summer of 2020, Wolfe was balancing his banking job with working for Parks.

But when he realized he enjoyed his side job much more, he decided it was time to quit and open his studio.

Now, CJ Wolfe has seven employees and a growing number of satisfied customers. In addition, he is partnering with Parks’ community outreach organization—Parks Place Adventures—to offer local youths fun summer courses in photography, video editing, and graphic design, along with financial literacy.
