Talking "Find Your North" with Jess Hunter
Dear Me: Nicki Rohloff
It is ever so beautiful to be strange. To do things differently than others. To see things in a rare light. To me, that is such gold to carry. - Christopher Poindexter.
This quote blasts through your brain the first moment you land on Find Your North's site. It is enough to browse through the thought provoking text and compelling imagery to wish to know the people behind the workshop. We were lucky to connect with Jess Hunter who together with Levi Tijerina plan to gather creatives from the wedding photography community and challenge them to shed the unnecessary and to rediscover the core & the 'why' of their business. All of that and more happening in Alaska, out of all places. Winter is coming, indeed!

Dear Me: Sara Rogers
This year’s April marked the 27th anniversary of NASA's launching of the Hubble Space Telescope. Hubble is not the first and only space telescope, but it is by far the best known and most popular, because the images it captured have not only revolutionized astronomy but also ignited the imagination and the desire for knowledge in generations ahead.
Continuing our Dear Me: A Letter to My Sixteen-Year-Old Self series, is the amazing Sara Rogers. She is a pug lover, traveller, bookworm, tea lover, potterhead and just a brilliant artist that inspires us every time we stumble upon her photography! We've managed to get some of her philosophy on the photography career, failures and comparing yourself to others. Grab a cup of something delicious, a mental notebook and keep on reading!
