Paul has been working as a film photographer for years but has been lacking passion. He recently conquered his fear of video, got a DSLR and dove right in. Now he is questioning his path and what he can do for clients to give the most value. Michael digs deep as they discover where Paul needs to put his focus – and it’s not necessarily shooting and editing video.

In this one on one session, Gebbs will cover:

  • Transitioning from photography to video
  • Burnout
  • Necessity VS desire
  • Imposter syndrome
  • Trusting your intuition
