    Becoming A Hybrid Creator, and Getting Better at Videography with Slater Moore

    Becoming A Hybrid Creator, and Getting Better at Videography with Slater Moore

    In today's episode, we focus the discussion on becoming hybrid creators, not just photographers, and what it means to embrace a multidisciplinary approach to photography and videography.

    Our guest for today is Slater Moore (@slatermoorephotography), a renowned professional photographer, filmmaker, and sea captain, known for his captivating work in marine photography and videography. This is his second time on the podcast. Slater shares his insights on the concept of being a "hybrid creator", what's involved in licensing footage to production companies, why "good content" on social media is no longer enough and why it's beneficial to actively engage in other genres of photography and videography.

    Here is a link to all of Slater's relevant pages: https://liinks.co/slatermoorephotography

An authentic exploration of what it means to be an photographer.

Part mindfulness, part artistic motivation, always introspective and engaging: The Photographer Mindset is one of those podcasts that makes you want to be a better creative and a better person. Can’t recommend highly enough.

Aaron and Seth are authentic, relatable, relaxed, informative, and engaging

There’s a reason the photographers mindset is highly rated and that is summed up in two words: authenticity and honesty. Aaron and Seth’s ability to connect with their guests and listeners gives a relaxed, informative and engaging listen. Every episode offers unique insights from many different photographers experiences and touches on everything from improving business practices, the creative process and perspectives on how to grow personally. All with real world examples from guests. For me, every photographer knowingly or unknowingly deals with these topics in the forefront or back of there minds. While the conversation feels light Arron and Seth keep you engaged while providing depth and value each step of the way. I am grateful and lucky to soon be a guest. I am
excited for the journey ahead. Great job fellas!

Phenomenal Podcast

I’ve been fortunate enough to be on the show twice. What a great experience. Aaron and Seth do an amazing job of making the guest feel comfortable and it soon felt as if I was talking to two old friends of mine.
I’ve been listening to their other episodes and have thoroughly enjoyed them. Being a professional landscape photographer it’s so interesting to hear the stories and experiences of other fellow photographers. It also helps that Seth and Aaron have a great sense of humour as well as a great knowledge and passion for photography.
Great Job guys!!!
