    CS: Vicky Wildes - Community Spotlight

    Vicky Wildes is a member of the Beginner Photography Podcast based in Las Vegas. She first emailed me a few months ago letting me know that she had listened to all 300 episodes of the podcast and would now have to find something inferior to listen to on her runs. I knew I had to get her on to learn more about her photo journey and what she has learned after listening to every episode of the podcast.

    318: 10 Tips for Staying Motivated as a Photographer

    318: 10 Tips for Staying Motivated as a Photographer

    I have not picked up my camera in more than a month and now that lack of momentum has stopped me from continuing to shoot. Thats unacceptable if I wish to become the type of photographer I want to be. 
    So in this episode I share 10 motivational photography tips to help you (and me) to pick back up the camera and get to work!


    #1: You dont live in a magical location. Get over it
    #2: Give yourself permission to shoot aimlessly with no end goal
    #3: Start fresh with a new folder on your computer of the photographer who you are now
    #4: Capture the mundane parts of everyday life (Start every day taking a photo of your coffee)
    #5: Shoot in JPG to remove the burden of having to edit your photos after you shoot
    #6: Go for a walk. The more youre out, the more youll see interesting things to capture. 
    #7: Consume less, Create more. Delete Instagram and Facebook off your phone. Share your photos with CloudSpot.io - http://deliverphotos.com/ 
    #8: Listen to music when shooting to distract your brain while you focus on photography. I listen to Lush Lofi and Brain Food playlists on Spotify
    #9: Set your camera to shoot in Black and White rather than edit the photo later. This will help you to see better compositions and focus on moment.
    #10: If you have multiple cameras, sell one and buy a photo book. A photo book will inspire you to shoot in just 3-4 pages. Something scrolling instagram for an hour cant even do.

Such a great podcast!

I’ve recently gotten back into photography and found this podcast. I drove a lot for work and download a bunch of episodes and just binge it while on the road. The stories are motivational and educational for me as a new photographer. Thank you and keep up the great work!

Top Notch

As a photographer who’s just starting out in business and creative this is just such a good podcast. I feel like I’ve searched so many avenues for this content and it was here all along. Thanks for what you do to make this podcast great. It hits so many different types of photography and there are just so many great gems in these episodes even if the overall theme doesn’t apply to what each and every person listening is doing. I’m motivated to go and shoot or try something new after every listen! Keep it coming!
