Justin Bridges is a fashion and portrait photographer based in New York City. Originally from Atlanta, Georgia, Justin began his pursuit of photography as a college student studying finance and economics.

Although he opted for an early career as a finance professional at Goldman Sachs, he realized the need to align his career with his love of photography. Today, he balances his photography career with a passion for personal finance.

Justin's approach is to capture the untraveled moment and apply a feeling of art and thoughtfulness to each photograph. His Skillshare classes on both photography and finance have helped over 50,000 students learn and grow in their creative careers.

This live session will include:

  • A breakdown of the most common financial pitfalls Justin has seen new freelancers experience
  • Simple, actionable ways to get yourself out of these situations or avoid them entirely
  • Insightful exercises to help you understand your spending habits and relationship with money
  • A Q&A with Justin to tackle any burning questions you have about freelance careers
