I am fascinated by the broad knowledge, insights and skills international working photographers have.

The way photographers work and think has a lot to offer for how to work and think in any other profession when you want others to react to your work.

Being surrounded for one week by amazing photographers and photography stories at the international photography festival Xposure gave me a lot of input for work, in fact for any discipline you are working in. If you are an artist, a writer, a business owner, entrepreneur, activist, or scientist — any profession or activity can take a leaf out of the photographers’ book.
