Creativity with John Cleese!

May 1st, 2012 by John Adkins


One of the hardest things for many photographers to develop is a sense of creativity.  You might be the most technologically proficient person with your gear and know how to edit photos better than the best Photoshop gurus out there but what about making interesting pictures?

Creativity, according to John Cleese is not a talent, but rather a quality that can be learned by the biggest imbecile… fortunately for me.  So while you might have the technical know how, where do you rate on the creative scale?

Check out this video by the very talented and humorous John Cleese.  Many of you may know him from Monty Python fame, but what you may not know about him, is that he is a highly educated, imaginative, and persuasive writer and educator.  Maybe this video will help you to unlock your own creative abilities and also allow you a little laugh or two.  Its a little over 30 minutes long, but full of useful info regardless if you’re a photographer, an artist, an engineer or a teacher!

Here’s a big tip, humor can spawn awesome ideas!
