  • Balancing personal and commercial work. 
  • Personal projects and specifically Justin current personal project, how it came about and how it makes it all happen
  • The ‘Photo Face-Off’ reality show on the History Channel that Justin took part in for a number of seasons – and what that taught him. 
  • The importance of being able to talk to others about your work and get opinions on your images – how Justin uses Instagram to get real feedback on his work.
