When you are part of a community everything is better. Being a full-time photographer can be a lonely job sometimes. You get to have amazing clients, but you’d only get to see them every so often. A good portion of your time is spent at home, in front of a computer. I have moved three times now so having a sense of community is very important to me. I found just that with this group of fellow creatives. The Tuesdays Together group here is Nashville is a great community. We spend time encouraging each other instead of seeing each other as competition. Doing things like this Headshots Swap is a great example of the fun we have helping each other out.
We all meet at the Gulch in Nashville and had a fun filled day of headshots and laughter. Hannah was there from Unrulyroses and she brought some amazing flower crowns that we all had to try on. We took turns taking headshots of each other and headshots of the members that were not photographers. When all was said and done we had to get a group photo of all the fun. We asked a fellow bystander to snap a shot or two of the group. It’s days like these I’m so happy to have found a great community of creatives in Nashville.
Do you work from home? What do you do to keep yourself motivated and inspired? Do you have a go-to group of people that help encourage you? I’d love to hear about it below in the comments section.
