Why You Should Stop Educating Other Photographers. And Why You Should Start.

Why You Should Stop Educating Other Photographers. And Why You Should Start.

Today’s conversation is limited to an extremely specific audience. If you’re a Photographer who is a Speaker/Teacher/Workshop Leader, today’s message is a gift for you. Some of you may not like what you hear. If not, you can blame ME. I specifically asked the Daniels to address this subject.

Here’s the spoiler of this episode: UNDERSTAND YOUR “WHY.”

And lest you think this is a Debbie Downer show, here are a few things you WON’T hear today:

  • “There are too many Speakers on the circuit!”
  • “Photography has plenty of educational resources!”
  • “You have to invest decades into the industry before you have the right to teach others!”

Quite the contrary.

Greg and Lesa graciously, candidly reveal details of their own journey as top-tier speakers, the Mentor who begged them to stop, why they left the teaching circuit for a couple of decades, and why they’re back at it today.

If you’re on the speaking/teaching circuit, this is the “I wish I’d have known then what I know now” conversation. Don’t miss it.

This is actually the second part of my conversation with Gregory & Lesa Daniel. If you missed the first part, you missed a great discussion of showcasing your work, the world’s best engagement story that begins on the Space Shuttle, and an inspiring story of a 12 year old’s first photograph.
