Andrea Stern Photography Rep, Agent, and Manager

This conversation comes from a live Clubhouse discussion. In this episode, Chris Do joins photography rep, agent, and manager Andrea Stern in her photo business forum. The topic: what do you do when you’re stuck in your career?

Andrea helps photographers get work and develop their careers and she's done so for over two decades. But times change. And so does the professional landscape. What drove advertising and got you work 20 years ago doesn’t work as well today. As a seasoned professional, how do you compete with young up-and-comers? Especially when they have tens of thousands of followers, and you don’t. And that actually matters to clients.

In this live Q&A, Andrea and Chris field questions from people that are bored, stuck, or uninspired in their careers. And although they don’t always agree, Andrea and Chris both offer beacons of hope for an unknown future.

Being a creative professional is not easy. How do you balance honing your craft, running a business, and marketing yourself? And how do you keep up and age into your career? We’ll let Andrea and Chris answer those big questions for you. But we will say this: if you don’t adapt to the times, the times will leave you behind.

Pat Flynn Podcaster, Author, and Entrepreneur

You can do everything right—even go above and beyond—and still be a fantastic failure. But as they like to say: failure is inevitable. It’s how you deal with it that matters. Pat Flynn is an acclaimed podcaster, author, entrepreneur, and Pokémon card collector. Yes, you just read “Pokémon".

"Everyone has a plan 'til they get punched in the mouth. The Futur loves that quote from Mike Tyson. It encapsulates life so well. You can do everything right—even go above and beyond—and still be a fantastic failure. But as they like to say: failure is inevitable. It’s how you deal with it that matters.

Pat Flynn is an acclaimed podcaster, author, entrepreneur, and Pokémon card collector. Yes, you just read “Pokémon". Growing up, he did everything right. Earned perfect grades. Landed the perfect dream job. And then was laid off. But that crushing defeat was the catalyst for his success to come. You might say that getting laid off was the best thing that ever happened to him.

In this episode, Pat and Chris Do discuss failure’s role in success, the benefits of mastermind groups, and how helping others can truly change your life.

How Do Designers Use Data Visualization to Take The Numb Out of Numbers?

Do you know what “flatten the curve” means? If so, it’s likely due in part to the hard work by data visualization designers over the last year. Our society is now more data driven than ever as everything is quantified, counted, and dumped into spreadsheets, and it’s easy to be overwhelmed by numbers. Data visualization designers work to sort through the numbers using both science and creativity to…

Do you know what “flatten the curve” means? If so, it’s likely due in part to the hard work by data visualization designers over the last year. Our society is now more data driven than ever as everything is quantified, counted, and dumped into spreadsheets, and it’s easy to be overwhelmed by numbers. Data visualization designers work to sort through the numbers using both science and creativity to find the stories they have to tell and help us understand the world a little better. But what goes into designing an effective data visualization, and how do you balance the art and the science of it?

For this episode, the guest is the filmmaker, blogger and podcaster Monique Henry-Hudson. Based in Queens, New York, where she has lived all her life, Monique's creative path to animation and storytelling began after a school trip to the Museum of Moving Image where she was inspired to one day make her own cartoons. She later went on to study at New York's School of Visual Arts. But on graduation, Monique says she struggled to find the right opportunities and began working in production management instead. It was during a stint at Blue Sky Studios, where she worked closely with story artists, directors, producers, and writers on films such as Ice Age: Collision Course and Spies in Disguise that she found her true calling even her "name in lights" on those production credits. A dream come true, no doubt.

Since Monique's time at Blue Sky, she has gone on to create a travelling animation panel series, Diverse Toons with her friend Jade Seaberry to highlight the importance of diversity in the animation industry. And she's behind her own podcast, SimplyRobotix, to help share some wisdom and insight into the world of animation. Today, Monique is working for Netflix Animation.

In this episode, they chat about Monique growing up in Queens, finding opportunities to get into animation, and discovering unexpected paths. They talk about the power of networking and making valuable connections. And they delve into recent movie releases (Disney/Pixar's Soul and Onward) and how the industry is evolving after the events of last summer not to mention how we, as an audience, are demanding more from creators and why there are lots of things to be excited about, particularly from Netflix.

Which of the 6 Creative Types Are You?

According to Creative Pep Talk host Andy J. Pizza, you wouldn’t get very far as a basketball player if you played by the rules of soccer. Can you imagine trying to play without touching the ball with your hands? It would be ridiculous and impossible. And yet, in your creativity, Andy believes we often let other people’s creative rules and values make us feel disqualified all the time.

According to Creative Pep Talk host Andy J. Pizza, you wouldn’t get very far as a basketball player if you played by the rules of soccer. Can you imagine trying to play without touching the ball with your hands? It would be ridiculous and impossible. And yet, in your creativity, Andy believes we often let other people’s creative rules and values make us feel disqualified all the time. We’ve heard “the only rule in creativity is that there are no rules”, so why do we constantly feel like imposters who are “doing it wrong”?

Andy has a hypothesis: Because we don’t realize that creativity means very different things to each and every artist. We all define and value creativity extremely differently, but Andy thinks we don't realize this.

In this episode Andy helps you figure out what creativity is about for you. When you start to figure out why YOU love creative work, you can let go of what OTHERS think it’s about and thrive in your own way.

This is part 3 of their 4-Part Creative Elixir Series. Listen to part 1, episode 276, here.
