Do You Know What Makes You Tick?

“Less is more” – hmmm, not always the case! This week we’re digging in deep with multi-passionate producer, photographer and author Mandee Johnson. If you’re ready to know what it takes to be a mutli-passionate entrepreneur, then you’re in the right place. Mandee jumps right into how being multi-passionate doesn’t mean you need to stretch yourself thin. Building and managing your passions is something we all can do – and succeed at! So grab your coffee and a pen and let’s talk it out. 

Grab your coffee, grab your tea, let’s talk it out!

About Mandee Johnson

Mandee Johnson is a commercial, editorial, and wedding photographer based in Los Angeles, CA. She published her first book in the summer of 2020 with Andrews McMeel, Super Serious: An Oral History of Los Angeles Independent Stand-Up Comedy, with 4×5 portraits from a decade of The Super Serious Show. 

Mandee’s diverse portfolio and extensive knowledge in design, art direction, and production bring a broad artistic perspective to her practice. Her unique style mixes fine art, documentary, and editorial with pop color and personality – creating energetic and intimate images. My work celebrates strong storytelling with a singular point of view, allowing me to capture the raw energy of my subjects with all their spontaneity, vulnerability, joy, and sincerity. 

In addition to Mandee’s photo work, she’s the co-founder and an executive producer at CleftClips and Okay Fine, both comedy-oriented production companies. Recent work includes Haunt the Johnsons, Arsenio!, Introducing…, and our ongoing live show Hot Tub with Kurt and Kristen.
