Taking the Leap! Episode 7: Brooke Shaden on Creativity, Community and Castles in the Air

I had decided to walk away from photography, but I had these tickets to attend After Dark in St. Louis. This would be my last hurrah. Or so I thought until I met Brooke Shaden. She showed me that fine art photography was within my reach. Over those three days, she would show me how to create some amazing images. I am far from alone when I say that Brooke Shaden changed my life. She has a community of hundreds of thousands who would likely chime in with similar stories. 

Note that this was recorded in December of 2014. When we refer to next year, we are speaking of this year (2015).
