On this PPN Camera and Inspiration episode, Marco invited the inspiring photographer, author, and YouTuber Sean Tucker who has been on Marco’s interview wishlist the longest and who has been requested to be a guest the most by PPN listeners. Sean was invited to this show because Marco had the feeling, that we all could use an inspirational jump-start right now, to get our creativity going and to either level up on current projects or to get inspired to start new photo projects.

Inspirational Photographer of the Month:
Sean picked Canadian-born photographer Joey Lawrence (Joey L.). Sean is impressed by how tasteful Joey creates his portraits and how meaningful his work is. Joey has some personal projects like the tribes of the Omo Valley in Ethiopia, the guerrilla fighters of Kurdistan, and Holy Men in India, where he mixes natural light and strobes to create very striking images.
You can find out more about Joey L.’s work by visiting his website:
Here are some behind-the-scenes videos of the three photo projects::
Motivation to pick up your camera and start new photo projects:
In the main segment of this show, Sean shared different approaches to get in the right mindset to think about new projects or to level up on existing projects.
Making friends with change and “embracing the suck” is part of the process, that helps us to explore and expand our mental, creative, and technical mindset for future photo projects.
Inspirational Photo Book Pick of the Month:
Sean’s pick: “BYWAYS” Photographs by Roger A. Deakins.
Sean is inspired by Rager A. Deakins as he is one of his favorite cinematographers who has done some of the most beautiful films of the last 20 years. Deakins' photos in this book are from rural North Devon and the neighboring seaside dating back as far as 1971. Sean likes the way Deakins frames his images with the same eye that he has when he composes his movies - but without the famous actors and lighting setup. So it is like the purest version of his vision to Sean.
The book is published by Thames & Hudson and has 160 pages

Marco’s pick: “The Meaning in the Making (A Philosophy - for the Creative Life)” by Sean Tucker.
This book contains personal stories interwoven with the psychological, philosophical, and spiritual practices which help me stay a mentally healthy, inspired, and motivated "maker of things." I may be known first and foremost as a photographer, but this book has been written for anyone who makes anything; from filmmakers to musicians, and from painters to writers. So, no matter what your chosen creative outlet is, this book is for you.
