“comfort zones, and lack thereof”


Wow. We’re already at episode no.3 of ART FOR YOUR EAR! Today I’m talking to LA based photographer, the very sweet and lovely, Stephanie Vovas… I’m pushing her out of her comfort zone with this whole podcast thing, but it’s payback… you’ll see/hear why! Everything we talk about in this episode is shown here so that you can follow along while we’re chatting. Most of it won’t make sense unless you listen, so just click ‘play’ right up there {see, just under the gorgeous pregnant lady in a fur coat}, and you can also subscribe on iTunes. Ready? Go!






The brilliant, visionary, art loving Managing Director of Land of Nod, Michelle Kohanzo pushed Stephanie right out of her comfort zone for this amazing project:



… and, we both have a thing for Johnny Depp in Blow. This could be a Stephanie Vovas shot, no?!


And that’s it! Thanks so much to Xanadu Stephanie for putting her nerves aside to do this with me! Doesn’t she have the cutest voice and the best laugh? Episode no.4 will be up next Saturday… see you then.

ps. Here is some proof that I got “Vovas’d”. I pushed myself waaaay out of my comfort zone to do this shoot with Stephanie – I can’t even believe this is me to be totally honest. I’m also out of my comfort zone posting these, but it seems only fair given how nervous she was to do the podcast! Now we’re tied.


Oh boy.

    Those Land of Nod pics totally remind me of Moonrise Kingdom, which is my all-time favorite movie and Camp Wandawega is on my bucket list! Brava once again for another awesome, inspiring podcast. (And Stephanie’s voice is super dreamy.)

    So I learned about your podcast last year…a real salve during a tumultuous and awful year(esp here in the States!). And so now I am going to work my way through ALL the episodes. Really enjoyed this one, and especially loved the range from kids to Playboy! And you were very brave Danielle…the images look great, particularly the one on the shaft of sunlight.
