Can’t Get Enough
You know him. You love him. He’s back! Marking his 3rd (4th?) appearance with us, Antonio M. Rosario is back for more Shutter Time lovin’. He risked his beauty sleep for us as we kept him up way past his bedtime . We think he’s beautiful without the extra zzzzzzs anyway!
You guys kept me up WAY past my bedtime. What happens to me if I don't get my beauty rest? ?? https://t.co/OvvVmxtoQ7

Awards. Contests. Marketing? What Gives?
We received a great topic suggestion from one of our listeners, Linda, and it was good timing because contests and photography related awards were already on our minds, so we asked Antonio to join us and the three of us took to the mics to figure this out and take it one step further. Please join us as we discuss the validity of photography awards, contests and where marketing fits in!
Join the Convo
What are your thoughts about the contests based solely on popularity where you can often sway the vote? Is this hidden marketing? What about some of the other contests like the heavy hitters, such as National Geo? What can winning a contest do for your career? We’d love to hear your thoughts on this one! You can keep the conversation flowing by joining us via Bookface (Mac) and on Twitter and of course, this blog. You can also subscribe for free via iTunes and Stitcher.
Thanks to Linda for the topic suggestion! If you have any topic suggestions, please drop us a note. Another big thanks to our pal, Antonio, for coming on the show! Please take a moment to check out his work if you have yet to do so! We’re looking forward to another mashup between STWSM and STM! Speaking of Street Shots – if you missed our first mashup with Tom and Antonio, please check out episode 130! Could I be using any more exclamation points in this blog post? Didn’t think so.
Thanks as always for tuning in!
