EP #2 - In conversation with Photographer, Writer + Creative Director Bee Walker
In the second episode of the podcast, we sit down with Bee Walker.
We talk about her fascination for the people in New York, how she started as a photographer, her transition from a 9 to 5 job to a more creative path, how she said ‘Yes’ to life, how running influences her life (including quotes from Eliud Kipchoge, the men’s world record holder in the marathon), her adventure with Paper Monday and some encouraging words on how you can start the thing you always dreamed about doing.
One of my favorite quotes from the podcast:
“Just do the thing, whatever you have in your heart, and don’t be concerned about it being perfect and don’t worry about what you don’t have, but you have something in your heart and that is real, that has its own momentum, and I truly believe, that its bigger than us. We’re sort of vessels for ideas, and concepts, and change, and so the thing in your heart, of course it’s going to feel huge, and probably intimidating, but it wouldn’t be put there, if you weren’t the person to bring it out. So just do it. Like… I started taking pictures on my iPhone (…) nobody makes fun of children when they learn how to walk. Why should it be any different. If a child I can accomplish so much, learning how to walk and talk in two years, all those things from scratch — like what can I do in two years. Where can I be two years from now: so just start.”
