Aligning Your Core Values for Better Photography
The journey of nature photography can be amazing. Through it, we can learn to be better humans. Such is the case for today's guest of my podcast, Nic Stover. Nic has successfully managed to grow his online and physical photography business by aligning his core values and focusing on what really matters to him.

- How Nic has found a way to differentiate himself by aligning his core values.
- Why Nic isn't on social media and how he promotes his business instead.
- Finding the right framework to evaluate your creative journey.
- Lessons learned from his experience being in a gallery and being critiqued at FotoFest.
