64 – From Doctor to World Renowned Photographer

How are you all handling this August heat?!?

Everyone who wants to reach out, make sure you show some love to the “Ask me a Question” button on the right of the website. I thinks its more personal and efficient to ask a question or just leave some feedback!

Today’s episode is 2 years in the making. On this episode, I’m chopping it up with Dr. Zun Lee who is a world-renowned photographer and self-described visual story teller. We chatted about his transition from the clinical physician world, to corporate healthcare management, to now as full-time photographer.

He’s a heavy hitter. His work has been featured in Forbes, The New York Times, Huffington Post,  and Wall Street Journal. In 2014 he put out a groundbreaking book called Father Figure: Exploring Alternate Notions of Black Fatherhood, and it has won several international awards.

On a side note, I recorded this with Dr. Zun Lee almost 2 years ago. This interview goes through so many different layers and I wasn’t sure how it would’ve been received when the show first started. I think that was a mistake for not being confident how you the audience would receive a podcast episode that talks about these issues. I apologize to Dr. Lee and to you – the amazing audience.


Things you’ll learn in this episode:

  • Difference of patient care in United States vs Germany (where he trained)
  • How he handled going from being a “scrub” to a “suit”
  • How he found his love for photography after being forced to by a co-worker
  • Why vulnerability helps him relate to his subjects in photography
  • What his photos say about him
  • How he answers #imnotjustadoc
