I am a Whidbey Island, Wa based fine-art photographer and photographic educator. I am a core faculty member of the Photographic Center Northwest, as well as an instructor for CreateLive and KeblyOne . I also regularly presents at regional and national conferences. I also the host of the weekly podcast The Perceptive Photographer which focuses on the challenges and day-to-day aspects of living as a photographer.

In this week’s podcast, we take a look at the impacts of getting stuck in an easy rut. As we work on our photography, it is easy to find things that we are good at and stick with those techniques, subjects and concepts. However, it is important to continue to push our photography forward. One of the ways to do that is to find edges of our comfort zones and push outside of those areas. Trying new things can jumpstart new ideas, reenforce old habits and show us where we might be just a bit lazy in our approach to our photography.
