Show Notes

On today’s episode, Tom Kemp manages to hold space for both a deeply philosophical conversation while at the same time providing pragmatic advice for all of us working to figure out how the heck to make a living from the things we make. I personally, have never connected much with the philosophy and the “what is art?” conversations that often spring up, but when married side-by-side with the realistic, and the pragmatic - the benefits of things like social media for artists to test out ideas in the marketplace alongside the difficult slog that is practicing a craft and teaching your body how to physically do something new in order to express that “what is art” idea?  Now that is a conversation I could have had last twice as long as this interview.

You’ve heard us talk a lot about Instagram here on the podcast in the last few weeks and it seems on continuous best-practice, how to succeed & grow on social media that every maker - whether side-hustler or full-timer - has said is rooted in consistency. Consistently showing up. But I know a lot of times consistency is hard if you don’t have a way to create photos and videos that you are actually proud of.

This is why I’m so excited to say that we are preparing to open the doors to a new cohort for the Maker’s Photography Styling System in just a couple of short weeks! If you are listening along in real-time, the exact date is September 8th, 2022 for when doors will open to the public. BUT, for those of you that are savvy and on our waitlist, the doors will open over one week earlier on August 29th. Spots are limited, so if you want to make sure you don’t miss out, CLICK HERE to be added to our waitlist for first dibs!
