037: Developing a Successful Podcast to Diversify Your Income with JAINE KERSHNER

December 9, 2020


Today we have Jainé of Jainé Kershner Photography and Tea with Jainé on with us talking all about how to start a podcast. Jainé is an amazing photographer, businesswoman and podcaster, who we met at Hybrid Co. this year and took her breakout class on how to start a podcast. Which is how we got here today with Dare to Develop. Jainé has some amazing tips not just stating a podcast but why diversifying your business is important.


I want to dare you to go through your work and get rid of anything you’re not proud of anymore or that doesn’t connect with your brand as of today.


What do you shoot with?

I’m a hybrid photographer, so I’ve got a Contax 645 80mm lens. I’m also a Nikon girl. I’ve got a Nikon D850  but I also have a Sony AR7III that I am thinking of switching over to.

What’s your favorite post-wedding snack?

A quick dessert like cake or the butter cookies, I’ll just put some of those in a napkin.

What’s your favorite pump-up jam?

I love 2000’s music, like N’Sync and Brittany Spears.

What is your favorite thing to do outside of your business?

Spending time with my family. I also like a good, post-wedding lazy Sunday. That really is my favorite. Getting to sleep in a little late, being a little groggy, and then having a nice brunch that my husband made. 

What is one daring leap you’ve taken in your business?

I can think of two. The first was leaving my full-time corporate job. I worked for a very nice design Company. It was a cushy job. I got paid a lot of money, but I was really unhappy. And I knew I couldn’t do it for the rest of my life.  So i decided to go back to school for photography. I really focused on the things that made me happy.

About a year later, I quit my job and started  Brooklyn View Photography, which was my old company’s name. I think the other big leap was actually rebranding to Jainé Kershner Photography.

What is one thing you feel like you’re really great at in your business?  

I think I’m great at being a good photographer. I know my stuff and I really am confident in my craft and I take pride in that. I’m also great with connecting with my clients and building real relationships with them.
