Leaving a successful high-level radio job behind, Vicki went freelance when she became a mum.

But you won’t hear say “Hi, I’m a freelance photographer”. Instead it’s, “I run a photography business”.

From the outset Vicki’s always put business before art.

When burn out threatened she hired other photographers to work with her. She’s diversified into teaching both online and in person. She organises workshops and retreats.

We chat about pricing, collaboration, podcasting and putting an hour aside at the start of each day to work on marketing or her side projects - to eat that frog.

Right. Hit play and let’s get down to business.
