Putting your work (and yourself) out there with Marc Silber

Episode 11,  Apr 16, 2021, 12:00 PM

Hello everyone, and welcome back to another episode of The Creativity Campus Podcast.

Today I’m talking to Marc Silber about his brilliant book; Create – tools from seriously talented people to unleash your creative life. 

Marc is also the author of the #1 best-selling book Advancing Your Photography, he’s an award-winning video producer, photographer, and photography educator. Marc’s highly popular YouTube Show, Advancing your Photography has won several Telly Awards and if photography is your thing, it is definitely one to check out.

I caught up with Marc during the height of lockdown and this conversation, which he recorded from his home in California, making me a little jealous, was such a delight and filled me with so much energy to create. 

This conversation is crammed full of helpful tools and techniques to support your creative process, in it, we talk about;

  • The Five Stages of Creativity and how you can use them to structure and support your creative process 

  • Visualisation, what it is, why it’s so important and how we can all become better at doing it

  •  When to ‘let it flow’ and when to edit and why you need to know the difference.

  • Putting your work out into the world; dealing with fear, stage fright and negative feedback

  • The stigma of failing and how to reframe so you can begin to embrace it

  • And in this episode, Marc debunks one the greatest creative excuses of all time and shares his secret to boasting creativity by 60% 

I hope this episode encourages you to put your work (and yourself) out into the world and helps you to accept it’s all just a necessary, albeit scary, part of the process!

Happy listening (and sharing)!
