What does it take to run a small creative business? What even is a "back end"? It can be a bit of a mess; we know, because we run them. This podcast goes behind the scenes, providing in-depth conversations with other photographers and wedding creatives on how they approach things. Even during a global pandemic.

    Episode 7: Annie Molenaar - Celebrant, Publisher, Educator

    ANNIE! Annie and I met a few years ago working on a wedding, and became fast friends, bonding over shared values and interests. There's a bit of pandemic chat in this one, taking stock of where we're at in August. We also talk about pivoting, what "systems" even are, and taking risks when making a niche product.

    Episode 5: Oli Sansom - Photographer

    Episode 5: Oli Sansom - Photographer

    This is a good, wide reaching chat with Oli. I feel like 40-50 minutes is a good, respectable podcast episode these days, but with Oli there are so many things to talk about. I reckon there's going to be a volume of chats over the years (he's on an old episode of What Do You Make? actually).


    We always go down good tangents that often dont relate to photography, which is important. We discuss the STEM Antarctica work, divisive branding, and the homogeny of the wedding space.

    Episode 4: Josh Withers - Celebrant

    Josh is an old friend of mine who happens to be a marriage celebrant. We often have big long ranty conversations about how to deal with our own businesses and lots of those are around how we physically, systematically communicate certain things to our couples and clients, the services we use, and why we use them. This is just the latest one, I made it official by podasting it!
