Ep. 6 Show Notes | Sustain the Stoke with Arthur Lefo

Hey, friends! Welcome back to Rewildology.

Holy smokes, am I excited to release this episode. Today I’m chatting with Arthur Leforestier, who is an awesome friend of mine and is absolutely crushing it in wildlife photography. We discuss his tumultuous road that led him to wildlife photography, the ethics and common misconceptions of the field, and Arthur gives some great advice for anyone considering making a big life change or feeling a little lost where you’re currently at in life.

There are some big takeaways from this episode, and I’m pumped to hear what you all think. Don’t forget to subscribe, rate and review the show. I read all comments and highly appreciate this awesome community we’re building.
