Episode Number:

This week’s podcast is all about the importance of figuring out the times in your day when you have the most focus on your creative living.


I am teaching at a couple of conferences over the next few months. If you are attending Photoshop World in Orlando next week, please stop by and say hi. I will be teaching two classes. One on sharpening in Lightroom and the other is about the fine art digital print. In May, I am teaching two sessions for CreativeLive’s Photoshop Week. You can tune in and see those sessions live. A wonder week of fantastic training. I am so excited to be part of both.

Daily Rituals

Mason Currey’s book Daily Rituals explores the everyday schedules of an artist. I picked the book up because I was trying to understand my creative energy better. Were there times of day that worked better. What would a great day look like from a creative block point of view? In my exploration, I learned that I have two creative peaks that I can take advantage. For the rest of the day, I can slot in all the other things that are also important.

As you look at your creative process, how can you structure your day so that you can get the work you need to have done and balance the creative living.

Don’t forget to check out my 2017 Workshops including the Perceptive Photographer Workshop focused on the intersection side of photography.
