The tables have turned on today's episode as this week, I (Sachin) am taking my turn in the interviewee hotseat. My good friend, and producer of this podcast, Jeremy Enns is asking the tough questions today, and we’re digging into my journey from the financial world of London, England, to becoming a full time creative in Vancouver, Canada.
After moving countries, a complete career change and a major health crisis, I was forced to looking inward at the life I was creating for myself. We dig into how learning to honor my body and mind through yoga and meditation has played a huge roll in my transformation as a person and creative, and how I was able to move from one of the most uncreative careers imaginable to full-time creative work.
We also talk about ‘living life with no regrets’ and the importance of finding gratitude in your daily life. On the photography side of things, we discuss how travel and street photography influence my wedding work, and how I’ve managed to get established as a photographer.
