Iz La Motte attributes her quick inroads into adventure photography and videography to her willingness to experiment. To break into this line of work, she says: “Get creative as often as possible. Push your style. Try and fail. We’re not meant to show up knowing everything. In this line of work, the learning is never over. That’s one of the things I love about it.”
Try and fail. We’re not meant to show up knowing everything.
The more a young creative person can throw themselves into the roles they seek, she adds, the more they’ll gain experience. “Don’t wait for someone to offer you the position you’re dreaming of. Take the role on yourself and put whatever you create out into the world for people to see,” she says. Iz also isn’t afraid to ask for guidance. The shot above is with her mentor, Re Wikstrom.
