Rebecca Ickes Carra

I'm catching up with my friend and fellow wedding photographer (who has a pottery side hustle too!) Kate McElwee. 

We share how COVID made us unemployed for the first time in our lives, how pottery and other mediums bring us the creative exploration that we can’t really take in weddings, and… perhaps of most interest to many… we dish a few secrets on how, as photographers, we absolutely simplify how we photograph our ceramic work so it doesn’t take too much time! 

Not to mention, we wrap up this conversation talking bluntly about pricing your work - my mathematical approach and Kate’s “happy price” philosophy.
