Ep 41 - How Rachel Wood went from getting stranded in a petrol station to becoming the founder of Artverse with a mission to connect the community of art lovers and amplify artist voices The Art of Photography With Stanley Aryanto

    • Visual Arts

Hello Wicked Hunters, 
Welcome back to The Art of Photography podcast, today we have Rachel Wood with us sharing her journey and passion. 
Ever since she quit her office job and bought a camera in 2019, she has been on a world tour of exploration and discovery as a professional photographer. Some of her favourite images were captured in uncommon places: a Paleontology dig in Argentina, a solo expedition in Mongolia, and on a journey to Antarctica.
 
She's passionate about using her photos to advocate and raise funds for conservation and charity organizations. She also prides herself on being a patron to women in photography and BIPOC artists.

Although you will typically find her taking photos in odd positions, I will oftentimes be spotted at the nearest food truck, trying to taste everything on the menu.

Rachel Wood  0:00  If I was driving in my van across the USA, I hadn't had that many sales. And I was stuck at a gas station in the middle of like Kansas or something. And I could see the gas. But I cannot even afford to fill up my tank, because I was broke. And I knew I wanted to get to my friend's place, which was in like the next state over, but I just couldn't make it there. Because I couldn't afford it. And so that's kind of like what I was like really debating on is NF T's worth it
