The Reel Life podcast is a show that covers the behind the scenes of being a full time creative. Running a creative business is far more than just knowing how to use a camera, it's a lifestyle that although rewarding, comes along with it's own set of unique challenges, and that is what we unpack in this podcast.
It's Partly a podcast about creatives & the creative industry, but mostly a podcast about living a creative life.
Steal like an artist - Reel Life #051
This week I discuss the concept of stealing like an artist and how nothing I've ever made is entirely original.
I hope you enjoy this weeks episode 🎙
The beginning is going to be painful - Reel Life #050
Welcome to episode 50 of the Reel Life Podcast 🎙
This week I discuss the importance of understanding that the beginning of anything, is always going to be difficult and often times incredibly discouraging! So many people quit, because they have this idea that something is going to be effortless, simply because they're passionate, which could not be further from the truth.

How I get myself out of creative funks - Reel Life #049
This week I wanted to talk all about creative funks, and how I work myself out of these times where creativity is hard to come by!
I think 2020 and so far 2021 have been incredibly valuable years for learning how to find inspiration within, rather than depending on external motivators, and today, I wanted to share some of those lessons that I've learnt, with all of you.
I hope you enjoy this weeks episode 🎙
Am I entirely authentic online? - Reel Life #048
This week I discussed the topic of being authentic and personal online, and how I believe this is the best way to build a real and genuinely engaged audience.
I see my creative work, photography and digital art as a vehicle for getting myself in front of more people so that I'm able to share my experiences as an artist, share my thoughts and feelings and be open with those that see my work.
Being honest and real is how you build real connection, and when you build real connection, thats when you build real fans, people that will go to bat for you, and be invested in everything that you're doing!

This week I spoke to @visualsofjulius! 🎨

I hope you enjoy this weeks conversation 🎙

I now have this podcast added to my weekly calendar. I always draw a form of motivation from Tom each week that sees that day far more productive than others. I recommend this postcard for artists and other creatives, it’s very relatable!
Re(e)al, honest and motivational AF
I’ve been following Tom on IG for some time. I knew he started a podcast but I haven’t really got into the whole podcast listening until recently. Well now I’m hooked. If you guys are like me, a creative soul who likes sports, books and mainly photo and video, give this guy a shot! You’ll love the honest talk about all creative person’s struggles and successes. Learned a lot from you Tom. Keep it up! @filip.co
Reel life = real life
I found Tom on Instagram at the start of 2020 and not only have I been blown away by his images, I’ve been blown away by his attitude to life.
For someone so young to have such a knowledgable outlook on life it is honestly refreshing to see.
While some of his chats are content creator based (reel life). Tom delves into issues and ideas that face us all every day (real life).
I’m genuinely enjoying the podcast and love Tom’s authenticity throughout.
Might need to add a slight language warning, but at least you know his passion shines through when he speaks.
Keep at it Tom!
