Photography Ruts – Are They Real and What’s the Deal?

We dive in with a tough topic many creative souls face at one time or another – dealing with a creative rut. It can be anywhere from just a minor blip to downright hell. We discuss how and why ruts can even happen, the impact they can have on our work and creative flow. Please have a listen as we work our way through this often frustrating phase in an artist’s career.

Have you experienced one before and what would you suggest to your fellow artists when they find themselves in this predicament? Please chime in! You can find us on Stitcher App, we’re there as well!

Cheers, y’all!
