Join Jason and Emily as they broadcast from Joshua Tree National Park as they broach the topic of BEING MORE in a market oversaturated with photographers.
In this day and age it's easier than ever to enter the marketplace while at the same time harder than ever to make a living out of it. That's because the barriers to enter the market have become next to nothing. At the same time the field is now so saturated that it takes more effort, talent, and practice to really make it in the world of photography.
Fresh off of Jason's 3 day advanced lighting workshop at the Salton Sea, Jason discusses the key take aways for photographers out there who are looking to make a mark in this world. Jason also discusses what it takes to go from a 7 to a 10 with your talent and value to potential clients out there.
