Moving to a new country can be an incredibly daunting proposition, especially in the current geo-political environment; however, it can also open up doors to new experiences, cultures, and landscapes.
This week I had the pleasure of speaking with Julien Parrot - a photographer from France now living in Australia. Julien and I talked about how moving to a new country has completely changed his outlook and approach to photography.
On this week's episode, we discuss:
- How Julien got into photography.
- How moving to a new country has re-shaped his photography.
- How he has adapted to living abroad as a photographer.
- How not doubting his photographer stunted his growth as an artist.
- How confidence can be a double-edged sword.
- How to objectively critique our own work.
- How photography competitions have helped him in his growth as a photographer.
- His approach to photographing fireflies.
- And a lot more!
