Today, episode is just a bonus episode and a break away from my usual format. I mainly just wanted to share something I wrote about my past and struggles of trying to prove myself to people when doing something I was and am passionate about.

I though perhaps you might get something out of this. Overall, I just wanted to share about how important it is to surround yourself with encouraging and supportive people in your life when pursuing something you’re passionate about.

In this episode, I talk about the number thing I’ve purchased to help keep my editing consistent looking between different camera bodies. I know this is a struggle I hear about a lot.

I even give you a bonus tip that will also help speed up your editing.

In this episode, I talk about my long journey of being with The Knot for 7 years and how terrible I was treated when finally deciding to end my contract with them.

I lay out my thoughts on where I think things are going, why I believe new photographers should be pricing themselves accordingly, and overall how upset this entire process made me. I was not prepared to be threatened to be sent to debt collections because of their wrongdoing, but that’s happened. It’s a long episode, but if you love drama and want to save thousands of dollars a year, you’ll enjoy it.
