How clear is the intention behind your photography? How about the intention behind your life? As Levi Tijerina shares today, while it’s important to be in the moment while creating art, it’s maybe more important to have a vision of where you’re guiding your art, business and life.

After finding a passion for photography while living in Europe, Levi relocated to Denver, Colorado, and begun photographing international weddings. Six years later he is a force in the industry and is always on the cutting edge of creativity.

Offering tips on how to promote your location, ways to get out of your comfort zone and the importance of subtly in art, Levi is a wealth of knowledge and we are thrilled to have him on today’s show. Motivated by keeping his images timeless and creating a lasting legacy, Levi definitely knows how to take more than just a pretty picture. Inspired by travel, the couples he works with and the intention of photography,

“One of the biggest things I took away was the ability to take risks, and that things aren’t so linear.” (2:18)

“Although the photos were pretty terrible, they were my photos, and kind of my way of experiencing another culture. And for me it was a kind of an anthropology experience documenting what I thought was important, and then maybe coming to find out what I had thought was important maybe wasn’t as important as I imagined it to be.” (7:49)

“I feel like art is the most powerful when its most subtle. So, what I am really trying to do is be really mindful about how I include subtleties in my art that speak for themselves, that aren’t necessarily in your face about what I am trying to communicate, but that also don’t shy away from things I want to talk about.” (16:06)

“I think for a lot of us we just aim too low with those intentions, we say we want to travel or make x amount of money or have a certain type of freedom or opportunity. And those things are usually pretty attainable to some point and so when we get there it’s like ‘what happens next?’” (21:07)
