Episode 50: Catherine Hall

August 21, 2008

catherinehall.jpgWhat do a massage therapist and a wedding and portrait photographer have in common? Well, you gotta listen if you want to find out. Perhaps it was Catherine Hall’s experience as the former that contributed to her being such a terrific photographer. Or, maybe it was the Olympic-caliber skiing she used to do that gave her the competitive edge to rise above the rest. Or, perhaps, despite the fact that she was a middle child, instead of embracing a “Jan Brady” (”Marcia! Marcia! Marcia!”) attitude, Catherine always saw herself as Marcia. Whatever the secret, Catherine’s experience as an editorial, portrait, and wedding photographer have made her creme of the crop in the industry (she was one of only a few women selected as “Young Guns” earlier this year at WPPI). This is one of those episodes that will make you laugh as well as give you inspiration. We cover a whole host of topics: childhood; massage therapy; skiing; west coast vs. east coast (she’s bi-coastal, “not that there’s anything wrong with that.”); and, at the end, she gives us her take on two of the most oft-asked questions she gets as a speaker and instructor: how do you get sponsors and how do you get to charge high fees? We cover such a variety of topics, I’ve crowned Catherine “The Tangent Queen.”  Enjoy the ride!

Next week, Carey Schumacher of Barefoot Memories gets deep and spiritual, just before a guest star appearance from WPPI and RangeFinder President Skip Cohen. The two will give us the scoop on their recent tete-a-tete, the BBQ Smackdown. Don’t miss it!

    Hi Catherine, I’m writing to declare that I just experienced an AHA! Moment. You said, more or less, to use fear as my guide when it comes to what I should be doing. Looking back, I’ve noticed that I’ve spent much of my days hiding in the shadows afraid of failure. Like paying for an assistant because I don’t want to show up at a job by myself, or being upset with my wife because she won’t help me wen I want her to. I now understand that this is killing me, creatively and financially and I now understand that I should use the knot in the pit of my stomach, which I’m feeling right now as I write this, as an indicator or a guide of what I should or shouldn’t be doing. Catherine, thank you for your openness and thank you Ron for your awesome podcast.

    Much love
