Whether you’ve been shooting in your spare time as a hobby or professionally, you’re bound to feel less motivated and inspired compared to back when you were first starting out. Dealing with a lack of inspiration is something that all artists face at some point and it’s never a fun thing to go through. I’ve been doing photography and video professionally for over the past four years and while I understand that’s not all that long, I’ve faced several periods where I’ve felt a lack of inspiration and fell into ‘a creative rut.’

Over the past couple years of doing something related to photo and video each and every day, I’ve begun to realize several things that I need to do to keep myself out of ‘creative ruts’ and inspired to create. They work really well for me and I hope that they work well for you too!
