Award winning celebrity and people photographer Corey Nickols joins the show to talk about how he created a name for himself in one of the most competitive genres of photography, while also sharing a very honest and compelling story of overcoming his battle with bipolar disorder and how he continues to nurture a healthy mind with a healthy diet. Growing up in a rural area of California, Corey always felt like an outsider to what was around him.  Although he found photography at a very early age, it would be punk rock that would finally bring him a tribe of his own and the comfort in expressing himself.  That expression would soon lead him to studying photography at Brooks university and chasing the dream of becoming a pro and moving to LA.  Unfortunately graduation came on the heels of the collapse of the economy in 2008 and Corey was forced to get creative in his hustle and how to go about forming his portfolio.  It would be a creative personal project, and a great story of finding models from a retirement home, that would get him noticed by Emmy Magazine and start him on the path of working with some of the biggest name celebrities in the business.  During our conversation we talk about the importance of community, how he feels about the current state of celebrity work and social media, why so many celebrity photographers work with props, and the advice he gives to others chasing their dreams of becoming a professional photographer.
