Eight ‘Life in Focus’ Miniseries Episodes to Jumpstart Your Motivation

We introduced you to F-Stop Gear’s ‘Life in Focus’ miniseries when it first debuted back in April. Since then, eight more inspirational episodes of the series have aired, and since we neglected to share them one by one over the last eight months, we thought we’d share them all here as a sort of motivational kick in the pants to end the year on.

Fair warning: since these are all ‘F-Stop Pros,’ each episode does have a little bit of product placement in it, but we find that it doesn’t take away from the message that each photog seeks to share.

From the most recent episode featuring Adrian Klien (above) to the other seven featuring Brian Matiash, Scott Serfas, Christian Pondella, Lars Schneider, Jeff Curtes, Daniel Rönnbäck and Scott Markewitz, each has some advice, inspiration or (more often than not) both to offer as 2013 nears its end and you begin penning down your New Years resolutions for next year.

Klien takes you on a beautiful tour of the Pacific Northwest, Matiash talks motivation and HDR photography, Serfas shares his inspirational story, Pondella explains the importance of family and friends in keeping him grounded, Schneider tours the US in a vintage VW van, Curtes explains “the evolution of awesome,” Rönnbäck explores the photographer/athlete relationship and Markewitz shows off his relentless work ethic.

There really is something here for everyone:
