Today on the Planted With Light Podcast, I’m talking with Tauranga based wedding, lifestyle and adventure photographer, Claire Price.
Claire shares why she lost her passion for photography, went through burnout, and how she came through only to rediscover photography in a whole new light. We chat about the importance of having personal projects, and her journey of transitioning from digital to film photography.
Claire has started a lingerie and swimwear brand, Surfclub Label. We talk about this process, and why she wanted to start something completely new. We talk about taking creative risks, and not being afraid to go all in.
Because Claire went through burnout, she has an awesome philosophy to work/life balance. We talk daily routines that help her achieve a balanced life. I love her take on daydreaming, and why it’s a productive and essential activity for her.
We also talk about not being afraid to ask for help, and why it’s important to actively ask for feedback and advice from people you trust.

NOTE: Silly me, I forgot to turn off the fan which was behind me, until after the 3.23min mark! You may notice a loss of quality on my audio (only when I’m talking) from the 1.12 to the 3.23 minute mark. So sorry about this! Hopefully it’s not too distracting. I’ve completely geeked out and bought myself a fancy microphone, so you’ll hear an improvement in sound quality after 2 more episodes. Thanks so much for your patience!
