Why I Want to Unsubscribe From Your Mailing List

For the first time ever, last week, I received an email asking me why I wanted to be unsubscribed from the brand’s press release mailing list. Context : I’m a photographer. I have a blog where I share my work and personal life by way of visuals and words. Updating and managing a blog while navigating a few different career…

The Travesty of Event Invitations

If you tell me why you want me, I’m in a better position to deliver exactly what you want from me. A number of brands want me to “attend” their product launch events but very few are able to articulate why they want me there. When, on email, I ask them why they want me there, most of them perceive this…

How I Deal With Professional Trust Issues

There is this constant feeling of not knowing whether the person across the table or at the other end of the mobile phone – or behind the email inbox wall – is being truthful. “What if they’re lying?” “Maybe they aren’t lying but what if they’re not disclosing the whole truth and maybe I’m the losing party in this negotiation.”…

Photography Princess or Princess Photographer?

A photographer was recently “recognized” and “honored” by a well-established, been-around photography institution. This recognition and honor were covered by various news outlets online and possibly offline ( sorry I don’t really look at offline news anymore ). That would be that except this photographer also happens to be a “princess”. That would be that except this photographer also happens…

Equipment And Workflow for My Podcast

This is what my podcasting “workflow” looks like : After deciding what I’m going to be talking about and that it should be in the time range of 15-20 minutes, I write down a few points that I would like to help me stay on point. I ramble and that can make a terrible podcast. Then I put on some…

About The Boy

It’s his job. Taking out the garbage. He does it well. It’s his job. Taking out the garbage. He does it well. If not each night, then at least 3-4 times a week. He might ask me to open the main door for him – but that’s only because his hands are full of garbage bags that he’s collected from all…

The “Hustle” Delusion

Having believed in the “hustle” during my twenties and even in my early thirties, I don’t take kindly to anyone pushing it as a way to succeed. ( And I’m not even going to address how we define “success” in this post. ) Firstly, this habit of ignoring the dictionary meaning of words is a disservice to our ability as…

On Making Fun

The discussion about one should not tweet what one won’t say to someone’s face in real life / in-person, is now old. If this is the first time you’re reading or hearing about this, think about it. If we meet in real life, and you tell me to fuck-off, by all means say it to me on Twitter. But if…

Validating And Submitting My Podcast

After thinking about this for a long time and looking at a bunch of preliminary considerations ( which I wrote about earlier ), I was ready to figure out how to actually do this. I read up about the different approaches to this and the simplest one seemed to be the one where you “burn” your feed URL on FeedBurner…

Preliminary Considerations for My Podcast

If you consider less than 30 episodes to be a “podcast”, I’m a podcaster. Yay! I’m only writing and publishing this after iTunes approved my podcast’s feed – and yes, you can subscribe to the audio-only version of #TheNainaRedhuExperience on iTunes now!   Preliminary Considerations Having always fantasized about gaining a following like Joe Rogan, after the boy introduced me…

I Almost Bought Followers on Instagram

The Trigger After many weeks, I recently, specifically, visited an acquaintance’s profile on Instagram and was taken aback to see that they had 50,000 followers. I looked at their updates to see what had changed for them to have suddenly gotten such a large following and was unable to spot any differences. The photos were of the same things –…

Getting Back On The Health Wagon

Few things bother me more than my belly fat and lack-luster skin, when it comes to taking care of myself. Sleeping well is still not a problem – even though I’m thirty-six years old. I can sleep like a baby as long as there are no external disturbances. External stimuli – mainly noise – disturb my sleep a LOT. I’ve…

Fashion Week Thoughts #NAINAxGoPro

The things I think about at Fashion Week are rarely about fashion. The amount of time I have spent on the road, to get to the NSIC Venue and back home and to a designer’s space who showed offsite. This amount of time was spent in the back seat of cabs. All Uber. Gurgaon has better Uber service than Noida…
