I came up with a bunch of titles for this weeks episode with Scottish outdoor photographer Kim Grant. Titles about creating videos for YouTube, about doing something unique, about showcasing the beauty in your own local landscapes, about capturing the attention of tourism boards to work with, and so on…
But there was one overarching theme to what Kim shared in our chat… One main lesson that no matter what your specific field of interest is, or whether you want to “go pro” or not, if you take this lesson to heart then you should never find yourself low on inspiration or losing your passion for photography.
Subscribe to the podcast and listen to the full interview now to hear how Kim has done it, and how the side-effect was a career in photography.
