Can you just imagine – building a career and a life based on joy? That’s exactly what this week’s guest on The Profitable Photographer Podcast has done. In fact, it is even his mission in life to inspire one million people around the world and to share joy every single day. I couldn’t be more excited to introduce you to Yasmin Nguyen, joy ambassador, author, speaker, and coach.
Yasmin teaches everyone from community leaders to business owners, caregivers, and students how to have more joy in their life. He believes that joy is the antidote to the stress and suffering most of us face in our life.
Just to give you an idea of how impactful Yasmin’s work is, when I initially met him at a workshop a few years ago, what he shared during the workshop inspired me to extend my stay, and have a brand new experience on the Oregon coast that I hadn’t planned for!
I can’t wait for you to listen to this joyful episode as Yasmin shares with us everything there is to know about joy, and, how as photographers, the prosperity of your business is tied to the joy you bring others.
Get ready to be inspired as Yasmin shares with us not only his incredible journey of leaving South Vietnam and how he went about finding joy in his life, but also
how to create space for and activate joy
how to identify joy blockers
how to notice what activates joy for yourself
how to be a joy ambassador

Say it isn’t so! This week officially marks the halfway point of my new miniseries, 7 Step Ideal Client Attraction Guide for Photographers! For the last few weeks, and going forward every other week until we’ve covered all 7 steps, I’ve been taking a deeper look at the free guide on my website, 7 Step Ideal Client Attraction Guide for Photographers, and breaking each step out into its own little mini podcast episode to help you figure out who your ideal client is.
This week I’m diving into not just the next one, but the next TWO steps of the 7 Step Ideal Client Attraction Guide for Photographers. Step Three, “Where Are They?” and Step Four, “Pull Them To You” help us take a deeper dive into figuring out who our ideal clients are, where we can find them, and what the first steps should be once we do find them.
Too excited to see what’s next to wait for the next episode of the mini-series to drop or want to review what we’ve already covered? Get the full guide by visiting my website, https://lucidumascoaching.com/freegift/ to get your own copy of my guide.

It seems like everyone is suddenly talking about AI, both as a new tool and a threat to humanity (or at least creatives). I have dabbled in ChatGPT and watched a few Photoshop Beta tutorials and see where both can be helpful in my world. This is why I was so excited to have a conversation with two soulful artists, who happen to be photographers, about how we can both use artificial intelligence in photography businesses and rise above any “competition” from the robots.
I am so happy to bring you a conversation today with one of my very favorite humans in the whole world, and his equally talented sidekick. My friend, Arthur Rainville has been creating stunning photographs wrapped in intrigue, atmosphere, and romanticism for over 50 years. He’s been displayed in museums on 3 continents and has earned the title of “the poet laureate of photography.”
Arthur’s sidekick is the lovely Toni Marie. She’s had a photography business in Iowa since 1982 – the same year I started my business too! Toni Marie is a fine art photographer who also does volume photography. She is a PPA Master Craftsman, and master Artist, has earned way too many awards to list, and loves to share her passion for photography and art with fellow artists.
Give this insightful episode of The Profitable Photographer Podcast a listen as Arthur, Toni, and I discuss:
– if artificial intelligence has a role in a photography business
-the impact AI could have on your photography business
-the importance of authentic connections with your clients
-the one thing AII will never be able to replace

This week I am so excited to bring you the second episode of my new mini-series to the The Profitable Photographer Podcast! In case you missed episode 1, this mini-series is based on the free gift that I offer on my website: 7 Step Ideal Client Attraction Guide for Photographers. The guide that I’ve put together takes a deep dive into 7 steps every photographer needs to do to attract their ideal client, and over the next few weeks on the podcast, I’ll be breaking each of those steps down even further.
Next up? Step 2: Who are they? Listen in as I walk you through how to figure out who your ideal client is (not somebody that you’ve worked with before). The more you can picture your clients, the easier it is to recognize them, and know how to attract them.

This week’s The Profitable Photographer Podcast guest is joining us all the way from Norway. And, she’s brought something super valuable with her: all the secrets and tools that you need to build a photography website that will make you stand out from the crowd.
I’m so thrilled to welcome my new friend, Ingvild Kolnes to The Profitable Photographer with Luci Dumas! While it might have been a little tricky for us to find a time to connect with our time difference (a whopping 9 hours), I am so incredibly glad that we did.
Like me, Ingvild is a long-time photographer turned educator and mentor for other photographers. She even has her own podcast that you can check out, The Sustainable Photography Podcast. She specializes in helping talented, overworked photographers get back in touch with the artists they want to be so they can work with their dream clients without overworking. She does this by helping them build confidence, set boundaries, and charge what they’re worth through her 7-step program. Talk about inspiring!
I’m so excited for you to listen to our candid conversation about all about websites. Did you know that as a photographer, your website is actually one of the most powerful tools you have? It is!
Be sure to take plenty of notes as Ingvild shares with us 8 of her tried and true tips for making the most of your photography website. This includes:
what to have “above the fold” on your website
how you should let your ideal clients inspire your website design
how testimonials should play a big part on your website.
