    10: Wedding Photography With Danielle Honea

    10: Wedding Photography With Danielle Honea

    On this episode, we sit down and talk with Danielle Honea. A wedding photographer from the central coast of California who an amazing style and she is honestly one of the nicest persons I’ve met in the business! One of the objectives of this podcast for me as a photographer was to provide you, listeners, with conversations between photographers because that is quite honestly my favorite style of interview or podcasting. I feel like. Learn so much from hearing small business owners tell their stories and hear their successes and points they have improved on in their business! So that is what this episode is all about, its just a conversation and from it, I feel that I learned so much just getting to hear Danielle share her story. So I hope you enjoy this episode and if you want to get in touch with Danielle I have put her links down below and lastly, I love hearing what you guys have to say about this and even getting suggestions about topics or individuals to interview so if you feel like shooting me your thoughts you can do that through my Instagram or website.

    6: Law And Wedding Photography

    6: Law And Wedding Photography

    Wedding photography is such a multifaceted pursuit. You have the creative side which probably is what brought you into photography in the first palace and the attempt at refining your own skills and pushing yourself to excellence in that real but you also have the necessary task of fostering a real-life business. And for many including myself, this is when things start to get scary. Contracts and fancy language, numbers, and accounting - all this stuff many of never had the change to formally study - we have to learn on our own. Which is why this week's episode is so special to me. We have the amazing opportunity to hear from Keeley McKay, a wedding photographer based out of Bozeman, Montana who is also a full-time small business attorney! Something I really loved about Keeley was her ability to make the law talk less scary and I felt afterward that I had a little more motivation in this realm to start asking the scary questions and finding real answers! One note to make is Keeley is based out of Montana and I am from California and so this interview is more of a how to get started with thinking about law and photography than anything else. So without further adieo - Keeley Mckay!

    Check Out Keeley!
