My friend Todd over at has chosen to feature me on the Accidental Creative website. If you haven’t checked out the site yet, you should. It’s a great resource for creatives. Todd does great podcasts on the theory and philosophy of creativity, as well as interviews a lot of top notch people in the creative industry.
I posted on this book a while back when I first started the blog. Todd Henry over at Accidental Creative just did an interview with Keith Farazzi (the author) and talked about how relationships are the key ingredient to any business, and they tailored the interview to how it directly relates to creatives. It was a great reminder to me to really pursue and foster relationships through intimacy and generosity. It’s definitely a subject that I want to dive more into. Never Eat Alone will change your perspective on all relationships, business and non-business and erasing the line between the two.
The interview can be found at www.accidentalcreative.com I think you might have to sign up for the eCoaching, to get the podcast. There is a lot of great information in that so it’s worth it.
I’d like to hear what everyone thinks about the importance of relationships, and things that have worked well for you.
I’m going to give this book another read again. There aren’t too many books i strongly reommend, but this one I do. If you haven’t read it, do it. It’s a revolutionary.
Also, Check out the Never Eat Alone website. Keith’s blog has some great relation tips that he shares.
Last week some fellow photographers(fredegan.com, sarafrance.com, shyla, michaelnorwood, and kylebarnes) and I went to the Salton Sea, which is the aftermath of a man-made environmental disaster about an hour south of Palm Springs, California. It’s a very bizarre place. Deserted and silently eerie. It was hotter than I could ever imagine. 105 degrees in the desert. Even my fingers were sweating. Learn more on the Salton Sea…
It was an interesting trip for me, because it was a push to shoot more art driven work without people. So much of the work that I’ve gotten used to shooting is all people driven. It’s always good to break out of the norm and shoot something different. Push yourself and your eye. It’s good for your creative genes.
