Episode 005 - The Ready Steady Pro Photography Podcast: An Interview with Lel Hurst

InterviewMichael RammellComment

For Episode 5 the wonderful Lel Hurst stepped up to the mic for her very first one-to-one interview. I went back through my notes for this episode, which read: "Today our guest is Lel Hurst of LelHurst.com Despite being very, very, very (very), nervous Lel smashed this interview right out of the park. Lel was open and honest and shared some very personal things that have happened to her during her journey into her photographic career to date."

Lel gave a fantastic interview and was fantastically candid. Looking back now It's clear to see why Lel's episode was so popular; Lel was in a position that resonated so well with so many other photographers out there who were just so keen and driven to make a successful business.

In Episode 5 we talk about:

  • How Lel believes in training
  • How Lel’s confidence has grown, and grown over the years and the impact this has had on her as a businesswoman
  • Shooting all the time has helped Lel to hone her craft
  • Supportive partners and family members
  • Lel admits that she see’s faces…in everything and anything (even handbags!)
  • We also touch on the business side of things ofcourse and discuss setting milestones, targets & goals to keep yourself on target and focussed.

This interview was recorded back in October 2013 and Lel has developed and grown in the past 3 years, naturally.
