The Nine is an interview series with creative folks that began on my blog, Be Present, Be Here, in the Spring of 2009; the interviewees are asked to respond to nine questions in photographs (or video). All the interviews can be found here.
Vivienne McMaster first answered The Nine questions about three years ago (you can see her first interview here). Recently when chatting with her, I had the idea that it would be so much fun to have her answer The Nine questions now. Lucky for us, she graciously agreed to play along again.
Enjoy this peek into Vivienne's world...
Question 1: Who are you?
Question 2: In this moment, where are you?
Question 3: What are the textures of your corner of the world?
Question 4: If you had an hour alone to just play, what would you do?
Question 5: How do you seek joy?
Question 6: What nourishes you?
Question 7: When you need to simply take a breath and ground yourself, what do you do?
Question 8: How do you nurture your creative dreams?
Question 9: Does your heart have a secret wish you want to share?
Vivienne McMaster is a photographer, visual storyteller and workshop leader with a passionate, supportive, rule free approach to getting creative with taking photos.
She has a big love for helping people find the photographer within themselves. She believes, and knows from experience, that self-portraits can be incredibly healing (and also so much fun). She has a brand new website where she often shares stories that entwine images and words together.
Note from Liz: Viv has been my "go to" photography teacher for a while now, and I am so excited to join in on this next session of Swan Dive that begins next Monday. I have been wanting to grow my understanding of post-processing and can't wait to circle with others and learn from Viv again. Learn more about Swan Dive and consider coming along...
