In this episode, I talk to the phenomenal Serena Dzenis! Serena is a very talented fine art photographer, author, and speaker from Australia. She’s currently based in Iceland, where she takes surreal photographs of buildings and landscapes. She and I talk about:

  • Her background, which includes a very diverse list of jobs including food critic, actor, and mental health professional
  • What it was like to establish a photography business at the age of 17
  • The impact of social media on photography and mental health

& much more!

Serena is a very thoughtful and creative photographer. It was a pleasure to discuss photography and mental health with her. No matter what genre of photography you specialise in, I’m sure you’ll enjoy listening to this interview.
