Podcast Episode 104: This is Ana Backhaus

Such a pleasure to chat to the fab Ana Backhaus for Podcast #104! Originally from Portugal, and now living in Dubai, Ana was ranked 25th in the world on This is Reportage: Family for 2021, with 6 Reportage Family Awards and a Family Story Award won in the year. We talk about one of her original awards in the episode today, as well as many other things, including:

  • her documentary family workflow and approach from enquiry to delivery,
  • quite a few questions about her previous career as a flight attendant,
  • why the lack of control in documentary is so exhilarating,
  • our Netflix synopsis game,
  • why it’s so important to be resilient,
  • social media and self-sabotage,
  • and much more…

As always, you can listen on all the usual places: Spotify, Amazon Music, Google Podcasts, iTunes/Apple Podcasts, YouTube, and below in this post:

Below is the Reportage Family Award that Ana speaks about in the episode:

We now have 104 episodes of the podcast, and each and every episode contains so many personal stories, bits of advice and tips from world-class photographers. Over here you can find them all – including all our wedding photography podcast episodes – or head over here for our family photography podcast episodes.
