In this episode of the podcast, I dig into popular photography industry myths and tropes with editorial photographer and YouTuber, Rob Hall.

photography industry myths and tropes

You may be wondering what I mean by ‘photography industry myths and tropes’. Well, I mean things like “you need expensive gear to be a professional photographer”.

Or “getting published or winning awards” means you’re a successful photographer. Another popular trope is that you have to suffer to be successful in the photo industry.

Tune in to find out what Rob and I think of all these subjects, as well as Rob’s unexpected reaction the “Useless Information” portion of the program. There are literally so many of these topics that we had to split it up into TWO episodes – and they’re LONG episodes!
