Show Notes

In this episode of the Driven Female Entrepreneur Podcast, I speak with Elisabeth Fransdonk, conceptual photographer and owner of EMO PHOTO photo studio.

Elisabeth’s journey into photography started after moving to Switzerland. Her daughter and the country’s natural beauty inspired her to learn more about photography. Which soon became her  true calling.

Following her divorce more than a decade ago, she knew she needed to get financially independent as soon as possible. That’s when she decided to blend her background in psychology, her experience in marketing and advertising and her passion for photography, to bring companies and individuals the opportunity to express themselves and their brand through stunning and emotional visual storytelling.

Today, Elisabeth successfully reconnects people and businesses with their own story through beautiful images. And, through her workshops, she also teaches other photographers how to take better photos and entrepreneurs on how to have personal connections with their clients through social media.

Don't miss this episode to discover more about Elisabeth’s sound advice on how staying true to your business values will help you achieve success as an entrepreneur.

If at the end of the day you realised you did the best you could, and it still hasn't gotten you where you want to, it's okay. Tomorrow is another day. - Elisabeth Fransdonk
