Nicole Lusiani Elliott learns that courage can help us see things in a whole new way.
Joining Us on the Dirt Path of Life
Anne Kohler, Owner of Anne Kohler Photography
Featured recently in Alameda Magazine, Anne Kohler is an up and coming photographer who is a local phenom at places like the Blue Dot Cafe, where she’s sold more than 50 pieces of her work in the last few years.
While other photographers take pictures, Anne creates art.
“It’s scary to put yourself out there,” she says, “to open up something you love to the criticism of others.” But she did it, and continues to do it, much to the delight of her clients and customers. Having the courage to create a career out of something she loves has enriched her life exponentially; the gift of her art does the same for us.
Be it on the side of a barn or a racing on a speed boat, Anne and her camera work wherever they are called. Her favorite part is spending time with the new people she gets to meet when she’s shooting their photographs. “I also love the buzz I get from my creative releases. I come home from a shoot almost shaking with excitement!”
According to Anne, courage is “doing something you are afraid of, something that is not considered the safe choice, or the ‘normal’ choice. Courage is having the strength to face your innermost fears and doing it with all your effort and with you whole heart.”
When you see Anne’s work you know above all it’s done with heart which, as far as Dirt Paths go, is the key to unlocking any kind of courage that matters.
Dirt Path Publishing is a company dedicated to helping people find new paths to success with everyday challenges. Inspired by our founder and her dog, Mario, we have abandoned life’s concrete path of certainty in favor of a dirt path, including all of the joy and chaos it brings. We’re proud to have Dirt Path Press as our premier online publication and a brand new series of handbooks called, Skills I Wish I Learned in School. We also look forward to full length works such as ACT: The Team in Your Classroom, Wildflowers Don’t Grow in Rows, and What Can they Teach Us?
