MY WEDDING SEASON – THE PODCAST

by Aida Glowik

EPISODE 09: VALERIE FERNANDEZ – CULTIVATING ARTISTIC EXPRESSION

SHOW NOTES

On today’s episode, I am joined by my friend, Valerie Fernandez, all the way from Vanuatu.

Valerie works closely with her couples to create absolute magic – she describes the drive behind the images that she creates in four words: intimacy, connection, passion and vulnerability.

The water is a key element in her art – and in our time together, she talks about how she has recently found her way back to the ocean. I am putting a trigger warning on this episode, because we do talk about the pain of loss and grief. It is highly relevant and a cornerstone in Valerie’s story and her work.

This conversation is definitely for you if you are on the journey of finding your authentic artistic voice as a photographer.
