Mac Needs to Rant

The image and video of a polar bear sparked so many emotions across the globe and rightfully so. A marine mammal on dry land, looking through rubbish to find food, unable to properly walk. Right off the bat, it was assumed the state of the bear was from one reason alone based off the thoughts of the photographer. Immediately many agreed, whilst others questioned his claims. Surprisingly, this annoyed the non-wildlife enthusiast of Shutter Time to such degrees we took to the mics so Mac can have his rant. Please tune in as we touch on truth in photography.

Your Artistic Calling 

Based on a question I’ve been asking several photographers in the past couple of months, we took to the mics to ask the question – is photography your true calling? It’s a discussion we hope to continue in the new year.
