Episode 159 »» Brand Whoring with Dave SzweduikYou Asked. Critique Revisited.

We answer an interesting question from our Bookface page about critique, so we answered the question with a little help from Dave, all the while channeling our pals, Olaf and Antonio.

Yup. We Said That.

And hell, yes, we went there. Brand whoring. It needed to be addressed, so we decided to bring out wonderfully talented friend of the show, Dave “Swizzbob” Szweduik, back for another chat. Much like the tourism orgs we have discussed in the past, we started to wonder if not only are we doing the brands a huge free service when we heavily pimp our images out on social media, tagging said brands, and more importantly, are we doing ourselves a disservice by interrupting the art of arting? You decide.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on the show and how you feel about focusing so much on the brands. Is there a healthy balance to stay true to your artistic vision as well as soliciting brands, should that be your intent? Please chime in by commenting on the blog (we will catch up on comments, promise), or leaving a comment on Bookface or Twitter. As always, you can subscribe for free via iTunes and Stitcher!

Big thanks to Swizzbob for coming back on the show once again. We so enjoy sending out the bat signal to see if he will answer and he never lets us down! Do yourselves a favour and check out his fantastic tech podcast, digitalSoup, and his photography  work.

Thanks to everyone for tuning in and for the Bookface and Twitter questions!

Cheers, y’all!

He’s Baaaaack … 

You know him. You still love him. One of our brothers from another mother, the outspoken half of the Street Shots podcast, Antonio M. Rosario, joins us once again for another fun episode. Side note: we MISS you, Tom.

Thanks to a PetaPixel article, we continue the conversation on killing street photography and ask ourselves if we are all guilty of this crime. Say it isn’t so!

Killing street photography – is this continued chatter about the slaughter of a genre many of us love taking it too far? If so, what can we as an industry do about it? If not, please tell us why you think there is really only a bark, but very little bite to this popular opinion. We’d love to hear your thoughts! Please chime in on our blog, Twitter and Bookface. As always, you can subscribe for free via iTunes and Stitcher!
