My first inspiration and biggest mentor Jonathan Canlas shares how he went from being a $400 wedding photographer in 1999 to running multiple thriving businesses all while staying creative 20 years later. We talk about how he sidesteps comparison entirely, what personal work gives to you that can’t be measured by money or accolades (though those often come piggybacking too), how to use art as a reflection of what you really want, the biggest problem facing photographers today, and some golden advice he would give to himself when he was starting out if he could go back.
-how to pare down to the work you actually want to be doing
-why the place we call home defines our creativity
-deciding what you really want and how to get it
