Episode #281: All Gear And No Idea

This week: I’m talking about working with the technology you have. The takeaway message here is simple: don’t let technology – or, seemingly, a lack of it – become an excuse for not producing the sort of content you want and need.

Episode #280: Do You Belong… And Is It Obvious?

This week: I’m talking about what it means to belong to your niche’s community. So many brands – and individuals – like to promote themselves to their audience… yet little about what they show or talk about actually suggests that they understand the market they serve. Are you one of them?

Episode #279: Are You Willing To Get Uncomfortable?

This week: I’m talking about pushing yourself to do things that ultimately lead to success. Some of the greatest progress that you can make – both personally, professionally and with your use of photography – will come from getting out of your comfort zone. Scary stuff, right? Well, yes and no – rather than shying away, embrace that feeling and turn it to your advantage!

Episode #277: Don’t Let Other People’s Stories Be Your Own

This week: I’m talking about staying true to yourself. With an mindset based on comparing ourselves to others – and the pictures they create and share – it’s no wonder people lose track of how they can show up authentically. Ignore the ‘competition’… just be consistent and tell your own story. Some quick links to things mentioned in this week’s show: TAP Episode #276: What’s Your Happy Place?

Episode #276: What’s Your Happy Place?

This week: I’m talking about the importance of finding your creative ‘happy place’. It’s no secret that woodland is where I often feel most relaxed – especially if I’m in my hammock. A change of scenery and a change of place works wonders; it also give my creative juices the chance to flow. Everyone should have a place where they can go to feel inspired.

Episode #275: A Fresh Take On A Familiar Subject

This week: I’m talking about giving your pictures a creative nudge, so they continue to strike a chord. If you’ve ever felt that the photographs you share aren’t quite hitting the mark with your audience… you’re not alone! Staying constantly creative can be a challenge – but thankfully, getting on track doesn’t have to be a big ordeal. You just need to take a step back and see how to shake things up a little.
