If you don’t take time lapses it doesn’t matter, this show with Gunther Wegner is super cool and relevant to all photographers, as we chat about the untold parts of business.

On this episode we chat about creating a photography business without out actually getting paid for your photography. Gunther is the creator of LRTimelapse, software that integrates with Lightroom which makes making time-lapses super good and easy to post process.

Gunther had a full time job whilst working on the side with a blog and  LRTimelapse. We talk about making the transition from your job to your own thing, travelling, workshops, working for pleasure and doing projects that you are excited about. We also talking about using gear that you can afford and instead invest in your creativity, utilise your time effectively to create something. The side of business that isn’t attractive also makes it into the conversation, the amount of time that it actually takes to establish a meaningful business, having to do accounting and all those unexciting parts.

We had a fantastic time chatting with Gunther, he keeps it real, authentic and is great inspiration to keep on charging with your business.
