This episode was an absolute joy to record – I spoke to the wonderful Anna of Studio Gently, who recently took my picture. Having this conversation and working with Anna as a brand photographer has really changed the way I feel about being seen and telling stories with my work. I feel more proud and excited about what I do and I am so grateful for Anna’s incredibly ability to make people comfortable. Here is some of what we talked about:

  • Getting comfortable with being seen
  • Building a business that supports your mental health
  • Navigating times of stress while gently staying in touch with our creativity
  • Preparing for a photoshoot

Anna is an Edinburgh-based brand photographer working with creative kin across the UK. She loves helping even the shyest clients feel comfortable on camera, and when she’s not shooting, you’ll probably find her cosied up under a blanket with a fave magazine.
