From Getting Started to Making Big Change – Inspirational Advice From Our Interviews


UPDATED: May 22, 2023
ORIGINALLY AIRED ON September 29, 2020

The motivation to get moving, to overcome an obstacle, to dream BIG usually comes from conversations with friends and mentors. And that's what we're dishing up in this episode. Prepare yourself for inspiration and motivation, no matter what stage you're in as a conservation photographer.

We’ve been lucky enough to listen to so many incredibly inspiring conservation visual storytellers on this podcast, and so I thought I would do something a little different for this episode.

We're walking along the career path of a conservation photographer – from launching into a very first project, to finding your style, to raising huge amounts of money for conservation as a seasoned professional.

You'll discover sources for creative inspiration, key moments of persistence and humor in photography, to skills and tips you need in the conservation photography field.

I hope you find these moments from our interview guests inspiring, and that they remind you about how much is truly possible when you put your mind to it.

So sit back, pop in some headphones, and enjoy!
