Clarity, to me, is one of the keys to developing a project one loves. When we clarify our project’s definite chief aim, many opportunities for personal growth and career development come our way. As a result of working with me, artists, photographers and authors, clarify their project’s purpose, strengthen their photographic research, selection and storytelling. They develop self-confidence and skills required to design, print and bind their own photobook. This approach would suit individuals who are interested in drastically transforming their photographic projects into photobooks and can use clarity coaching. Who do you know that would benefit from clarity and self-belief to become a published and collected photobook author?
