In this Episode

In this week’s podcast, I got to thinking about how creativity works in our lives. It is important to consider how creativity manifests itself in your everyday life. For myself, I find that when my creativity is low it is because I haven’t created the necessary space to allow the creativity to emerge. In my own work, I have found that simple is always more. Getting more and more complicated in my work often leads to less creativity. I have also found that when my places of creativity are in disarray that my work is also in disarray. After listening to the podcast, I encourage you to think about your own creativity and how the spaces and places you feel most creative are pull together. Do you need clear and clean environments or the hustle and flow of a busy city? Does your desk need to be clean or messy? If you find that your creativity is off, I encourage you to look at what is filing your spaces with junk, noise and pollution and to do what you can to remove it. Find your simple, clean creative space.

Has digital really changed photography that much?

Has digital really changed photography that much?

Normally when I get asked about film and digital, I talk about the darkroom days being less and less easy to find, changes in media, or how the industry has shifted. I might tell a story about how I used to work versus how I work today. This time I had a very quick response that could have been seen as tongue in cheek, but in the end, it seemed to be an answer that really resonated in the conversation. After all, a story is a story, and light is light.

This week’s podcast talks about my answer to this wonderful question and how I have evolved over time as a photographer to land on what I think is a great way to think about how we all deal with changes in the photographic industry.
