We all make bad things when you are just starting out, it's just part of the process of creating. I am constantly trying to remind myself that with each bad creative work I put out I am one step closer to making something great!

  • Don’t see failure as as proof that you suck, take notes and keep trying..
  • You will be shitty at the start. The more you work and create the more of the shit you will get out of the way and keep moving onwards
  • View difficulties starting out as the mot that keeps everyone else out from trying
  • The sooner you can get your bad early works out of the way, the closer you get to produce something great.

Podcast cover

Today a chat with Israeli photographer Guy Fattal! Guy is an photographer originally from Israel who now lives in Whistler, Canada.

Guy’s Work: http://bit.ly/2tNwzZI

About Guy:
I’ve always been passionate about photography and sports, in particular skiing and snowboarding. This along with my love of people, travel and nature constantly drives me to explore and experience new horizons. I feel that the camera lens is a means to capture and combine the essence of natural backdrops along with the human force of extreme athletic performance.

I love photographing brilliant people in incredible surroundings with an emphasis on movement, speed and danger. My goal is to record striking and powerful photos that evoke emotion and fascination.I grew up in the hills surrounding Jerusalem and many of my local photographs echo both the uniqueness, divisions and similarities of the different faiths and cultures that live in the area. Being raised in a small country that’s never out of the news makes for a pressure cooker type of environment. That background is a part of what attracts me to vast mountain ranges and the warm camaraderie of the extreme sports world.

Just some of my thoughts on how to create when you just don't feel like it. There are some key excuses most people including me use; Perfectionism, not having the resources, rationalizing the project (whats the point?), fear of being judged, and laziness. Pick your poison!
