Justin Kauffman interview

Justin, as a maker, what inspires you to keep taking photos?

"I think my biggest inspiration to keep taking photos is seeing new things. I love travel and I love getting to see and experience new places, people, locations, and things."

What one piece of advice would you give to budding photographers, artists, and makers?

"If I were to give one piece of advice I think it would be to always take risks and always say yes. Even if something seems incredibly challenging or not at all possible, in the long run it will be worthwhile to push yourself and see what you can do.

There's been an incredible amount of opportunities that have landed in my lap because I've pushed myself and said yes...even if it's something I didn't think I'd be able to handle at first."
