“Authenticity requires a certain measure of vulnerability, transparency, and integrity.” Janet Louise Stephenson
I stumbled on Sean Tucker’s Youtube channel a few months ago and was immediately drawn to his authentic style. His videos are not only visually beautiful but there is a depth and raw honesty to his storytelling and teaching that is so refreshing.
If you haven’t already checked out his work I highly recommend you do. You won’t be disappointed. It’s long form, deep, nourishing conversations about his journey as a photographer.
In this interview we talk about:
- being sacked as a priest
- dealing with the shame he felt getting a waiting job when he was starting out
- struggle to find freelance clients
- finding a unique style
- the criticism that led him to finding his unique voice
- struggling with imposter syndrome
“At heart, I’m a story-teller. For me, Photography and Filmmaking reaches its zenith when it’s used to tell great stories. Over my career to date I have been fortunate enough to tell stories for individuals, NGO’S and big multinational corporations, across more than 20 countries. I’ve traveled many long hours doing this work myself, as well as helping companies set up their own studios, created systems and trained their staff to be able to produce high quality, compelling content in house, which then reaches the correct audience. I also run a growing online presence of my own with a YouTube Channel of over 150,000 subscribers, where I get to teach and inspire other photographers who are starting out on their own journeys. My goal for the future is to spend more time shooting more of the narrative work I love and less of the work-a-day photography and filmmaking which pays the bills for the majority of us.”
