It's winter. And for many photographers, that means cozying up by the fire with our laptops and a cup of coffee and working hard through those projects we want to get done before busy season starts. We're setting up shop for next year, updating galleries on our websites and our bridal guides, and anxiously waiting for Showit robots to show up.
When we're in this “working hard” stage of our business every year and not out shooting, sometimes our creative appetites aren't being fed. We're starving to do what we love and it can lead us to feelings of un-inspiration and winter doldrums.
We asked Showiteers what they do to stay inspired through the winter months! So while you're making sure 2017 is on the up and up, take a break from working on taxes, and writing blogs for days, and make sure to do a few things for yourself! Feed your creative soul so it doesn't get hangry!
Here are a few great ways how :
Showiteer Loren Jackson of Loren Jackson Photography loves to read books. She reads as many as she can!
Tori Watson says she “takes time to actually read for growth and inspiration. Look to areas outside of my industry for inspiration (home decor & style magazines, etc). Take the time to do other artistic endeavors – DIY art, rearrange home decor, make photobooks & prints of personal work.”
Callie Beale says she loves to “play outside and shoot for fun! I have blogged a few adventures! I've also been reading The Night Circus and I am really loving it! Also, Lara Casey's PowerSheets are just the best thing.”
We came up with our own list, a guide if you will to help you stay inspired! Here are 5 things you can do this winter to help keep you out of the winter blues!
We'd love to hear from you! What are YOU doing to keep your creativity fed this winter?
