This episode is part of the Brands that Book ‘Founders’ Series.’ This series will feature the founders and CEOs of companies that have created products and services for the creative industry.
Today’s episode features founder and CEO Shaun Gordon of Kiss Books, an heirloom album company for professional photographers. I’ve had the chance to get to know Shaun over the last few years through a year-long leadership program we both participated in, and more recently as we designed and built Kiss’s new brand and website. Shaun’s the kind of guy that’s reflective and finds opportunities to invest in himself and his relationships—all of that is on display in this episode.
We chat about why him and his partner decided to build Kiss Books. But not before exploring his beginnings as a photographer and—an experience I wasn’t aware of—owner of a brick-and-mortar photography equipment store. It was through his experience of shooting hundreds of sessions a year that he came to realize the need for an album company that was simple.
Shaun is the CEO of Kiss Books. He was a wedding photographer for 15 years and shot around 500 weddings. He is a California native that currently resides in Indianapolis. He has three kids and an amazing wife. Family is a huge priority and he has a big heart for creative entrepreneurs. He loves to travel, play tennis, and his Meyers Briggs is ENFP.
