“In this industry oversaturated with photographers, the only way to make a name for yourself (and stay sane) is to pick clients who appreciate what you're doing.” — Christine BlackburneToday, we take a closer look at finding the right client base with Christine Blackburne. Christine’s an award-winning still-life photographer and videographer based in New York City, and she’s been in the game for over 15 years. She’s created media for Benefit Cosmetics, Shiseido, Tiffany, Essence, Food and Wine, NY Magazine, the list goes on.There’s conventional wisdom around finding the right audience, the right client base. We hear "just be yourself" or "co-create with your clients" so much, it's platitudes. What does this mean, day-to-day? What decisions might one make over the years to hone in on the right client? And what does the right client even mean? How might we improve our understanding? We explore how Christine cultivates her creative voice and markets herself. She's continually sharpening her focus and evolving as an artist.Inside the EpisodeFind Christine Blackburne at https://www.christineblackburne.comOur theme music is by Ben Tyree, and he tweets at https://twitter.com/BenTyreeFollow Blissfully Aware host Ioana Friedman at: https://twitter.com/IoanaFriedmanI want to hear your feedback.

"Architecture's a very poetic craft. There are many beautiful things in nature. Beautiful mountains, rock formations, natural bridges, and arches. And if we could inhabit those, we could capture some of that beauty for ourselves. And so if we use those principles, then a wall is not a simple wall, and a window is not a simple window. You're talking about an aperture, or a rupture, something more dynamic, something more natural." — Jake ThielIn this episode, we discuss sustainability with Jake Thiel, founder, and CEO of Edifice Architectural. Jake collects timeworn arrowheads from the shores of the Potomac River. He appreciates their simplicity. He marvels in their history.He applies this wonder to the building process. What would it look like for an architecture startup to approach its craft with a multi-generational timeline? What would it mean for a startup to think about adaptive, sustainable growth, not only for itself, but also based on the needs of our communities and our planet?

"I spend a lot of time thinking about who a person is. Who they are at their core, at work, with their girlfriends, walking down the street, when they're crying in bed by themselves, or who they are in the shower. I take a lot of time to think about that when I develop characters." —Rahima RiceIn today’s episode, we’re going to discuss empathy and diversity with Rahima Rice.
