I am always either inspired or seeking inspiration. It’s just what I am. It’s always been what I am. Inspiration is fuel to my soul and I have always loved that rush of the hit, when I am flooded with images and emotions so fast, it’s more than I can keep up with.

That rush, I’ve always needed that in life. I’ve been through periods where I have lived feeling completely uninspired. It was as if life had stagnated. What inspires me? Photographs, words, music, emotions are the main things.

These days, inspiration is almost mandatory. My job as a photographer requires it. I thrive on inspiration runs, so it’s a good thing I work a job where I always have to push myself to find it.

But I suppose even without my work, I will still be seeking inspiration when I have none. How else will life be interesting?

Today I thought I’d share a little bit of what has been inspiring me lately.

None of this can happen if team members do not feel cared about. Relationships are the glue that holds great workplaces together. Watch this video to find out more
