If you ever had that moment when you realized you can document not only the real life, random moments that tie us all together, but the most high value, unique to you, most meaningful bits of your life (and your clients’ lives) and THAT created a fire within… you’ll love this episode.
Courtney Holmes is a photographer, filmmaker and Founder of the Filming Life Academy. She’s taught her own class, Filming Families: The Modern Family Video, on CreativeLive and speaks frequently among many conferences and events in the photography community. She’s consistently booked out with her clients as well.
For a long time, our approaches created this internal battle around being “documentary enough” with our peers and ourselves. We spill everything we’ve felt on this ride over the past few years in hopes to help YOU feel enough with your documentary approach… whatever that looks like.
Enjoy the story.
Take a break from social media this week and assess the stories of your life. Start there. Make a timeline. Look for the tiny stories that changed and shaped you into who you are today. Look at the seasons you’ve lived. Look at what’s coming up as a “last” in the near future.
Start there. Start with observation, move to the documenting later.
What would be the next honest, keepsake stories of your life if you approached documenting through the lens of the stories that pulse your heart right now, not just the random & real with perfect light & composition?
Next week, you’ll hear a convo with a guest who can help you get your own private podcast episodes of family stories. See ya then. Stay awake for your stories.
