So in today’s episode, I’m talking to Carolina Guzik, exper…

Everywhere you look on the internet, you can find pricing guides, information, and others talking about the revenue their businesses generate.

As photographers, it’s easy to stifle our own creativity with self-imposed limitations – whether that’s working solely within one particular style or losing sight of how important it is to experiment and embrace new opportunities.

A few years ago, I started my own process of reflection at the end of each year, looking at my successes… and maybe some of the things that didn’t go so well too.

Do you struggle to feel present or embrace photography in your personal life? Just because something comes naturally to us as professionals doesn’t necessarily mean that the same is true at home.

Photographers are busy people, and we sometimes let things slide that we shouldn’t. Namely, I’m talking about our photography websites. If I’m honest, I haven’t updated mine as much as I should and I bet you haven’t either. Websites are usually our primary marketing tools to find clients, so we can’t neglect them any longer. Here’s your reminder to…

If you’re a photographer, you’re probably an education junkie, just like me. We sign up for courses, we watch tutorials, we follow other creators on Instagram.

Digital photos are great in terms of portability and immediacy. But tangible photos that you can hold in your hand have so much more meaning. Think about the difference between a forgotten USB stick languishing in a drawer somewhere and a photo album filled with photos that you can touch. It’s a whole different vibe, isn’t it? In today’s episode, I…

As creatives, we spend too much time focusing on “should”. We tell ourselves, “This is the way my photos should look, and this is the way my business should run,” etc. But what if we moved past what should be and just focused on what is? Finding your true, authentic voice as a photographer takes time, but it’s worth it to find out what your passion…

Picture this scene: You’re shooting a children’s photo session and the kids are crying, their parents are frazzled, and no one is having a good time, especially not you.

It can be hard to realize that none of us are perfect. We get tired, we make mistakes, or we take on too many projects. But what we need to remember is that done is better than perfect.

Humans in general have a lot of limiting beliefs, but as photographers, so many doubts come into play. We’re unsure about our art, we doubt our value, we undercharge and overwork ourselves.

In today’s episode, I’m interviewing the ladies from The Motherhood …

In today’s episode, I’m interviewing Daniel Moyer, a photographer, podcaster, and ph…

I don’t know if there are three letters more intimidating to photographers than SEO, but it’s something we all need to educate ourselves about.

In today’s episode, I’m interviewing Melissa Arlena, …

Pricing your business is about the numbers, sure, but it’s also about your emotions.

Every single one of us has faced limiting beliefs at some point in our lives. We’ve let other people dictate our worth and our success and it’s not healthy or sustaining.

If you’ve ever been intimidated by ad strategies for your business, you’re not alone.

It really doesn’t have to be so scary, though. In today’s episode, I’m interviewing Ashleigh Taylo…

As creatives, we can sometimes let fear overwhelm our art, especially when we worry about what everyone else is (or isn’t!) doing. Like, should we try a new technology? Will we be left behind if we don’t use it? What if we don’t utilize it as well as someone else? But, if you put aside your fear, and allow yourself the freedom to create and play, y…

Taking photos of other people comes with the job of being a photographer. But what happens when you turn the camera on yourself? If you find yourself feeling a bit silly, that’s OK. Embrace it.
