In this episode of CREATE. PHOTOGRAPHY, Daniel Sigg will discuss a beginner’s mind. Today’s episode is inspired by a book called Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind.  The book contains teachings based on a compilation of talks by the late Shunryu Suzuki, given at a Zen Center in Los Altos, California. It was published in 1970 and is one of the influential books of Zen in the Western World, although not being academic. What I’d like to do today, is to summarize some of the teachings of Suzuki and then see how we can apply those teachings to our photography and perhaps aid in the creative process. This may seem quite esoteric, but I would argue, it’s actually quite the opposite.
