Sometimes it can feel difficult to get creative in your photography. Luckily for you, I sat down with fashion and portrait photographer Jonny Edward on this episode of The Nerdy Photographer Podcast to discuss overcoming barriers to our creativity, including those self imposed hurdles. And, really, who better to discuss this topic than “Jonny Creative” – more on how they got that moniker in the episode.

We discuss mental health, perfectionism and how it holds us back, finding yourself, helping others, setting goals and coming to terms with what happens when you achieve those goals, and so much more.
