In part 2 with Yasmin Tajik we again cover wide ranging topics, but at their core, it is who she is. She is compassionate for humanity and driven to inspire people through her photography. We chat about the wild mustangs outside of Phoenix and how this evolved into a partnership with the American Wild Horse Campaign. And several years ago, Yasmin bought a drone (although it stayed in the box for quite a while). Now she’s involved on the leadership team with Women Who Drone encouraging women and young girls to get into the wonderful world of drones. Only 6% of FAA Part 107 licensed drone operators are female and Women Who Drone is building those numbers with great advocacy.
“It is my goal to inspire compassion and a connection between the viewer of the image and the subject. By finding our commonalities, played out in different countries, climates and clothes, it brings us closer together, creating an understanding that we all want the same things in life, food on our table, a roof over our heads, good health, to love and be loved.”
She now partners with S.A.F.E. Kenya, American Wild Horse Campaign, and The Great Plains Foundation specifically through prints sales from her Fine Art Print site.
Here are the primary images that we discuss through this episode:
