The Naked Tog aims to gather creators and photographers who are doing great things in their niche and give them a platform to discuss the honest truths about our work, lives, and behind the scenes. In essence, we’re stripping things back to be honest even at the highest levels, and in doing that I hope to help others around the world to feel a bit better. This time we speak to Tracey Lund, a world-renowned wildlife photographer with more awards to her name than will fit on this page. Tracey is also one of our main TOG Awards judges, and she lives close enough to me that we could film this inside the Studio here at home.
The nature of The Naked Tog means that we’ll uncover some uncomfortable topics both in this episode and in the future. It might be suicide, mental health, sexual assault, self-harm, domestic abuse, financial distress or something else entirely but we do get deep. And for that reason, we need to provide trigger warnings and disclaimers. Consider this a general catch-all trigger warning, but each episode will have it’s own attached to it.
Trigger warnings for this episode include suicide, domestic abuse and similar themes.
