Have a listen to my interview with John Biethan of the “Branded” podcast.
Here are the show notes:
As a branding portrait photographer with extensive marketing and advertising experience, Marcy Browe uses this unique skill set to help her clients uncover their personal brand. Then, she brings that brand vision to life by creating stunning visual images that perfectly capture her client’s next-level version of themselves.
As a thriving portrait photographer, she’s able to immediately connect with her photo subjects to make them feel at ease and to allow them to enjoy their experience. This is her superpower, both behind the camera lens and when she’s presenting to a group. This is Marcy Browe.
Marcy talks about the influences in your life as a part of your brand. So inescapably and what usually creeps into this show, we talked about some of the music that has influenced each of us in our lives.

Annie Leibovitz quotes:
- A thing that you see in my pictures is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people.
- The camera makes you forget you’re there. It’s not like you are hiding but you forget, you are just looking so much.
- When I say I want to photograph someone, what it really means is that I’d like to know them. Anyone I know I photograph.

John mentions an episode he did with Mary Cravets on this podcast, episode 7 Mary Cravets: Client Generation – Tied For First and the highly recommended networking service she provides, WatchUsThrive.com.
Honoree Corder, Strategic Book Coach, who without having her own podcast, has been a guest on over 500 episodes.
I wanted to have this conversation with Marcy and told her if she got the Samson Q2U, I’d schedule with her. Why? Because if you’re a professional, spending time on Zoom or podcasts, you need to come off as a professional.
For you podcast junkies and wannabes, this episode was recorded with Marcy using a $60 Samson Q2U and myself using my 15-year-old AKG C3000 condenser mic. The episode was recorded remotely using Squadcast, mixed and mastered with Adobe Audition, and finally, run through Auphonic.
When asked what do you see yourself doing in the next 5-years?
Marcy says “More of the same. I’m in appreciation mode. It will appreciate as a monetary value appreciates” which I learned from Esther Hicks of Abraham-Hicks. When people ask me what I want, I say I want more of what I have. I don’t want something different, I say I want more of what I have.
