Pro Tips for Becoming a Successful Creative Photographer!


Recently, I had the great fortune to discuss this topic with two master photographers, Dewitt Jones and Tony Sweet. I recorded the interviews to share with other photographers who would like to know what it takes to reach the top.

For both of these interviews, my goal was to really dip into the mindset of a successful artist and then pass along their secrets to success. Listen for clues on how you, too, can rise to the top of your game when it comes to your creative photography.

Dewitt Jones is one of America's most respected photographers. For years, he has written a column in Outdoor Photographer magazine, and he's a highly sought-after motivational speaker and lecturer.

He talks candidly about his career as a photojournalist working for National Geographic, writing for Outdoor Photographer, and what it takes to make it as a photographer in the digital camera age. Click here to listen to this audio interview with Dewitt Jones... 

Tony Sweet is one of the best nature photographers around. We have the good fortune of having Tony on our instructor team at BetterPhoto's online photography school. In our talk, Tony discusses his drive, his focus on being creative, his music, and his mission and values.
