DWYWR #22: Brittney McZeal- Creative Challenges, Adulting, Myspace, and The Illuminati / by Jordan Hefler

Do What You Want Radio with Jordan Hefler

In this episode, I talk with fashion photographer Brittney McZeal about thriving with creative restrictions, how our generation is special, celebrity culture, hustling when you get out of college, and the good ole’ days of Myspace.


  • How Brittney majored in Fashion Merchandising and started working in boutiques

  • How to get out of “achievement mode” which is a college mindset and pivoting into “hustle mode” which is the real world

  • We started out talking a lot about the Kardashians and Kanye West? I don’t really know how

  • A grocery store fashion shoot Brittney did a while back- I mentioned this Rihanna shoot!

  • The Illuminati and how I used to research it obsessively

  • How creatives thrive when they don’t have a plan

  • The photo series I did that ended up looking a little bit controversial (I talked about in my episode with Katie Silva- finally linking them here)

  • The Mango Street Youtube Channel and how it’s helpful for photographers

  • Using creative restrictions to get out of a creative rut

  • Tom from Myspace and how he’s an amazing photographer

  • Our shady myspace days….scroll to the bottom to see some gems from my computer archives
