#20 Part 2 of 'The other half.' Working all hours in photography

In the second part of ‘The other half,’ we introduce Sam, Neale’s wife. If you missed part one, it’s worth visiting that episode from last week, when Neale interviewed Kevin’s wife Gemma. If that episode dealt with how our partners view starting a photographic business, this one talks a little more about how long hours and a strong work ethic can affect family time. Also this week, advice you would give your ‘younger self’ prior to business start up and what value photo workshops provide.
