Miniviews series - No. 4 with Justin Kauffman

You've landed on the fourth installment of the Maker Miniviews series called "I'm a Maker Because...". I'm excited to be adding more, talented makers to the lineup and to be sharing it with you! The structure of this maker series is that Scott Mathson, Makerviews asks different makers two questions. That's it, two questions. These text, maker interviews are quick and to-the-point, all while providing insight from a wide variety of truly talented individuals!

As makers, we all need to support each other in getting out there and making things. With that, brevity is key. That’s why I’ve taken a two-question approach in this series. Check out this interview with photographer, traveler, and life-junkie, Justin Kauffman.

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."
