What's holding you back?
As far as I can see... Only yourself.
I created The Mystery School to end "artist paralysis"... That lack of focus, endless procrastination, career anxiety, and social media overwhelm that I see crippling so many creatives I meet these days...
My mission is to help these talented misfits (no matter what their field) along their path to excellence. Kinda like... If Warhol's Factory was Hogwarts-- but online.
This 6-part video/essay boxset is the perfect solution for all of you "overthinkers" out there who have finally decided to put your brainpower to better use. It's time to live up to your artistic potential.
⬆︎ Stop overthinking... Instead, listen to this 'Make Art Not Content' Podcast. ⬆︎
All podcasts are arranged by section inside.
I love the little imperfections, like the occasional bits of microphone hiss, or the yelling and police sirens leaking in from outside. Most educational videos take place in "Take-22" land, a wonderful bubble of unreality where all problems and rough edges have been systematically worn down, which makes them useless as standalone documents of a moment-- or as pieces of art. With the LNPTV videos, I’m excited to show them to non-photographically minded people because, in addition to being incredibly informative, they’re also little documentaries, shot and edited with the flair of films.

IMPORTANT USAGE WARNING: Consuming The Mystery School will make content creators become artists, creatives become "rainmakers" and cause artist-entrepreneurs to never stress-out about social media ever again.
After watching "Finding Your Message (Geisha, Part 1)" I found myself sitting down and really thinking about what I loved about my work, and why I do it, and I realised I don't speak from that place. After watching this, I started letting people see me cry and be vulnerable because I realised that sharing from that place was true power, and that's what I have not been doing. The response was overwhelming from doing that. The men and women who I meet and connect through my work, is what makes me want to continue to dive further into photography these days. I'm not quite to the point of finding my message but I know this is bringing me closer to it. So thank you.
