F Scott Schafer went from club rat, shooting the metal music scene to taking President Obama’s portrait in the white house.
A brilliantly creative and fun guy this episode is packed full of value bombs.

Whether you are naturally creative or have to learn how to ignite your creativity, starting a photography business comes down to hard work, hustling and backing yourself.

I’ll leave the rest of the glorious advice to Scott on the episode. Be sure to check out his website to see his work, guaranteed you’ll get stuck there flicking through his epic portraits and movie posters.
