Photography has the ability to heal. It can help us process grief, learn to be better humans, and grow a wonderful relationship with nature. Mentorship with a caring mentor can help us to develop these benefits, and this one of the reasons this week's guest of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen Podcast, Xuan-Hui Ng, has been able to make such evocative and interesting work.
On this week's episode, we discuss:
- How Xuan got her start in photography.
- How Xuan has rediscovered herself by photographing the landscapes of Japan.
- How photography has become a vehicle to help her process grief.
- How she is able to photograph ephemeral moments.
- Learning about the landscapes of Japan.
- Xuan's secrets to launching her successful career in photography.
- How nature photography has enhanced her life.
- How Xuan works in projects.
- The power of mentorship and how it helped her elevate her work.
- And a lot more!
