How Do I Get Through A Creative Fog in My Photography Business?

In this week's photography podcast, we're talking about a big one! What do you do in a creative fog? Not, like, a time where you're feeling creatively depleted or tired but a creative fog where you just feel a little lost in all the noise? Photographer burnout and creative fogs are common. You've got this! Here's a few of the topics we're about to discuss! 

  • Pay Attention To What Makes You Tick
  • Change Your Environment
  • Create Work For Yourself
  • Don't Think About the End Product 
  • Don't Think About The Marketing

Wanna know this episode in one quote? I got you!

"With social media, it can be be very easy to compare yourself to others and, when we get in a creative fog, it can be really difficult to pull yourself out of it. Creative fogs, though, are kinda just part of the job:. They’ll be times where you feel really inspired, times where you feel like your hand is basically just a camera, and times where you don’t even know what kind of posing or editing you like.

And y’all! That is totally okay! At its heart, photography is a vulnerable experience. It’s okay that that might impact you every once in a while. And honestly? It’s kinda expected! And as a long term photographer / photography mom? I’m here to tell you that you CAN get through any creative fog ever."
