Feature in This is Reportage 100th Podcast episode
Back in June 2020, what turned out to be my most personal and challenging year, I got an request from Alan Law, Founder of this wonderful community: This is Reportage:
"This is Reportage has wedding photography podcasts and family photography podcasts! Every week they feature interviews with some of the world’s very best photographers, where they share an amazing amount of tips, advice, life lessons and more – all in a very relaxed and laid-back manner. The stories they tell are often incredibly funny, too – it’s not a stuffy podcast at all; as one of our recent reviews said “it’s one of my favourite podcasts out there for photography specifically but also for entertainment”.
In their 100th episode, they’ve done a special ‘montage’ episode – which contains clips from over 30 of the past guests, and some reflections from Alan about the past two years of podcasting. And I am very honored to have been included.
I talk about shooting from the heart, what is important for me when I shoot and when I listened to my own words, I felt a bit of a spark again. Because in all honesty, I was losing sight of my passion, of my ability to capture very important memories for people. Getting divorced, moving houses, lockdowns, changing everything, took almost all of my energy. And as there is no set time on grieving, and we can grieve about many things in order to find ourselves again, I wasn't able to get my energy back to the level I used too.
This year, I feel a bit different, I feel more real, more authentic. I know even better who I am, what I do and most importantly, why I do this.
So please support me on making 2022 my year, share my work, introduce me to people who are searching for a photographer and allow me to share wonderful images that hopefully touch peoples hearts!!!

What I want to say is this:
Being vulnerable feels uncomfortable, sharing your honest feelings and thoughts is terrifying, yet when you hear later on that your words inspired an 8 year old little girl, it is worth sharing. So don't be afraid to tell people what you are truly feeling and keep following your heart!
