The Documentary Photographer Podcast—Episode 24: Jon Wilkening—The Courage to Follow Your Heart to Fulfilment as a Photographer

Jon Wilkening left a successful career in finance to become a fine art photographer. His whole life, he felt like he was different and couldn't shake a sense of not quite belonging. It's hardly surprising when you think he's an American whose childhood was spent in the Netherlands and India. He was 12 by the time he settled permanently in the US.

Jon speaks about his fascinating upbringing and about how he came to make a risky, yet fulfilling leap from finance to photography.You'll also hear about the influence AJ Leon and the force of nature that is Misfit Inc had on his life.A special mention goes to Jane Boyd, a mutual friend who brought Jon and I together for the show.
