Happy New Years From Eric & Cindy!

Dear friend,

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year’s from me and Cindy in Marseille!

Originally sent from ERIC KIM NEWSLETTER:

2017 has been an incredible year of growth, learning, and creative exploration. Some life updates, to prepare ourselves for the new year :)

My personal life lessons

I outlined some of my life lessons from 2017, which boils down the importance of having a child-like mind, a sense of play, joy in the simplicity of everyday life, and photographers are artists.

33 Photography New Year’s Resolutions

If you feel like 2017 wasn’t a productive year, don’t fret– I put together 33 inspirational photography new year’s resolutions to motivate you for this upcoming year. Personally, I always find it difficult to find more inspiration in my photography, and having assignments and resolutions (while I often cheat), are always a good push in the right direction.

Eric & Cindy Conversations on Success

Cindy just put together a new inspirational film– conversations on success. Here is Cindy’s director’s statement:

“It’s simple, really. We like to pause, look around, and think about life. We made this to invite you to join us in conversation about what is important/not and to ask why/why not? With end of the year festivities, we took a moment to pause and reflect. In this moment of quiet meditation, we converse honestly about life, gratitude, and redefining expectations around ‘success’ and the artistic process. Happy Holidays from Cindy & Eric. We wish you a new year of hope, honesty, and rediscovering your inner child.”
