Episode Number:

This past weekend we were helping setup a booth at a local farmers market. As I was talking to a few of the local farmers who were at the market I realized how there approach to farming was something that could be applied to photography. They work hard to make sure that they are developing food in long-term sustainable ways and with a passion for doing things on a scale that keeps them, their families and the planet all happy.

As I talked with them, I realized that our creative life is much the same. We can put in processed (fast food) into our body and it will sustain us for a while but it doesn’t have a way to sustain long-term health. If we treat our photography and creative process like it was fast food, we can end up not being able to function at a level we expect. By taking the time to find a way to be creative, without depending on a constant diet of fast food, we can have a more creative life.
