At some point, we all want to quit. For a host of reasons, we might want to call it a day. Maybe we are tired, bored, fearful, or lost. No matter the cause at some point in your photography, you will want to move on. For some, it might be moving on from just a project. For others, it might be from photography in general.

This week’s podcast takes a look at the art of giving up. The process of letting go so that we can remove the old and make room for the new. A chance to find that we can continue to create and build on our experiences in life to become better than we were yesterday. While giving up doesn’t always have to happen, and some times giving up is done for the wrong reasons, we can sometimes find peace and joy when we celebrate the good that comes from starting a new.
