Ep 247: How to pitch yourself as a photographer with guest Olivia Bossert

How do you pitch yourself as a photographer? Imagine if you lived in a beautiful part of the world that was incredibly remote and your dream was to become a fashion photographer. Chances are you would need to relocate to a major fashion hub like Paris, New York, Sydney or London. That’s exactly the situation that today’s guest, Olivia Bossert found herself in.

Olivia lives in Cornwall, south-west coast of the UK. It’s a rustic, ruggedly beautiful location but not a lot of fashion brands are based there so Olivia thought outside the box and created a unique business plan where the big brands came to her!
