Rachel Jones Josh took photographers that inspire her on a retreat to the Canadian Rockies to shoot, collaborate, and have fun doing what they do.
There is no difference in motivation, strength, or determination between a man or a woman. Being brave and curious is an element that makes everyone equal. What I will say is that I think photography needs more collaboration like this. We need to share ideas and work with others more. I once had the mindset of keeping my cards close to my chest. I didn't want to share the way I edit, the presets I use, or the workflow I follow.
I did it because of the competitive nature that I told myself the photography industry has. I was keeping something valuable away from the industry, and I'm glad this mindset has passed. I now patiently share how to edit and color a photo in Photoshop. Sure, there is competition, but I now see it as a healthy part of the challenge. So, my advice is to show how you achieve something when someone asks. Teach it. You know as well as I do that a large part of photography is who you are as a person and not what gear or software you use. Be one that inspires by showing others.
In this video, it seems like each person's strength was given the opportunity to grow and shine. And I think it's great for B&H to sponsor events like this.
