We photographers often have very similar goals but how we get to those goals varies so much from business to business and person to person. This is one of my favorite parts about business! Everyone does something a little different.
How most of us learn is by talking with photographer friends and experimenting with different approaches until we find something that works for us. That’s exactly how FPP is formatted!
For the topic of the month, guests will share their perspective and how they approach the topic. Take marketing for example. Some photographers swear by Instagram while others prefer FB ads. Another group of photographers spend all their time and effort on SEO and yet others focus on building a natural network of word of mouth referrals!
Stay turned for updates and the launch of the Focused Photographers podcast coming to everywhere you listen to your podcasts!

Episode 006: Creativity from Street Photography with Dan Morris EPISODE SUMMARY Dan Morris is a laid-back UK-based wedding photographer who completely changed course several years into his photography career.

Episode 005: Creativity in the Unscripted with Chuck Anerino EPISODE SUMMARY Chuck Anerino is a wedding photographer with deeps photojournalistic roots based out Delaware. He got his start in photography “later” in life through blending his love for family and his passion for photography. When you view Chuck’s photographs, surely there’s attention to light and composition, but what’s immediately apparent to me is the instinctual connection one has as the viewer to the subjects in the frame. Chuck’s role as a third-party observer who minimally influences the events of the day, if at all. Many photographers may be tempted to think of the camera as
Episode 004: Creativity through Preparation with Tony Hoffer EPISODE SUMMARY Tony Hoffer is a photographer I’ve been following for a very long time. I remember finding his work when I was just starting out and being BLOWN AWAY by the photographs I saw. We’re both located outside of Philadelphia and what was even more awe-inspiring for me was because so many of his photographs were at the same venues I was photographing at but he saw them in such a different way. He and his wife Amy are known for churning out incredibly work over and over again. Seriously go

This type of lighting

Listen along as we get into how creativity ended up being the first topic released, some of my backstory and what so many photographers do when they’re just starting out that could end up hurting them in the long run.
