E148:

Today we are joined by Vegas based award winning published fine art photographer April Bielefeldt. April started a business using her creative medium of choice of photography to combine with her passion for travel to make her business. April makes her living from leading groups of travelers to different locations year round to get “that” shot every time. With an eye for photo and a love for travel April is able to help those passionate about photography travel to new places without missing the best places. We speak on going for it even when you don’t feel ready and growing into it, different pieces of the creative mind, and pricing your creative properly.

Quotes

“If someone asks if you can do it, just say yes and go out there and do it. Start small in whatever your passion is and learn as you grow. Keep adding on.” - April Bielefeld

“You have to be uncomfortable to get the right poses and shots.” - April Bielefeld

“ If you sell yourself a little bigger, it’s that perception and you’re gonna give it to them. It forces you to put yourself in those shoes and step up to the challenge and do it.”
