Motivation Ain’t Just Found On Office Posters From the 80s

Or is it? During one of our off-air convos, we started chatting about re-energizing ourselves with photography and finding motivation, especially during those rubbish times. Please join us as we take to the mics to find some solutions.

How do you find motivation during those ‘would rather hide under the covers‘ times or even when all seems well, but you just need an extra boost or two to push your photography? We would love to hear your resources and/or experiences! For the drone operators – have you flown the Mavic Pro and do you find it to be a solid performer? You can find us on Twitter and Bookface. Of course you can subscribe for free via iTunes or Stitcher!

Thanks for tuning in, folks!

Cheers, y’all!

Absolutely Stunning

Chances are you know him and you love him. Photographer and YouTube creator, Thomas Heaton, joined us from the UK to discuss his craft, inspirations and what drives him to keep creating those incredible landscapes and deliciously entertaining videos whilst on location.

Uncle. Murphy.

Our longtime listeners are well aware of his presence and to keep things interesting, he showed up stronger than ever for episode 155 and decided to unceremoniously remove me from the show. Crazy audio woes aside, Mac and Tom kept marching on. Ah, at least I was there in spirit, right?

Join the Convo

We’d love to hear your thoughts on the show (audio woes aside, folks, haha). Are there any questions you have for Thomas? If so, please drop us a note as we would love to have him back on the show to discuss more! Do you travel for your photography? If so, where have you been and where do you plan to go? Please chime in and join the convo. You can find us on Twitter and Bookface and here on the blog. Of course you can subscribe for free via iTunes or Stitcher!

Thanks again to Thomas Heaton for joining us on the show! If you haven’t checked out his work yet, please do so!

Thanks for tuning in, folks!

Cheers, y’all!

He Loves Us

You know him. You love him (as do we). Our good pal, Dave Szweduik, photographer, vlogger and now podcaster, is joining us once again on the show! He’s the yin to our yang. The cream to our corn. The wind beneath … y’all get the idea.

The Art of Arting

Ah, that fancy word coined by our Mac … when the latest gear news from the Fuji camp (yes, them, hehehe) left us …not dedicating a show to said news, we realized a shift is happening at the ol’ Shutter Time bunker and we decided to take to the mics to discuss focusing on the act of making art vs. focusing on gear. We just knew we had to bring Dave back on the show to make this happen!

Rules. Golden Ones.

A recent article about the golden ratio in photography had some photographers all riled up, ourselves included, so we thought we would take to the mics to discuss a few rules which seemed to be forced on us by some.  Do these rules even have any weight in today’s photography world and how important are these rules for telling your story?

Join the Convo

We’d love to hear your thoughts on rules of photography … do you practice these rules or do you subscribe to the ‘all rules are meant to be broken‘ way of life, or at least, photography? Do you have any plans for your photography in 2017? We’d love to hear about it! Please chime in here on ye ole blog, Bookface or Twitter. Of course you can subscribe for free via iTunes and Stitcher!

Thanks again for tuning in and chatting with us about all things photography!

Cheers, y’all!

You Can’t Stop Him

He answered the bat signal and came back for another Shutter Time chat. Though this time I think our pal, Dave “Batman” Szweduik, got a little more than he bargained for when he suddenly found himself as a referee in the ring!

In This Corner

It’s been a while since the gloves came off, and the topic of photography projects vs. assignments somehow sparked a spicy debate between us. Thankfully we had a voice a reason in the room, our good mate, Dave. Please join us as we take to the mics to figure out the difference and importance between the two.

Join the Convo

Do you feel there is a difference between photography projects and assignments or do you find it just doesn’t matter? Have you been involved in any assignments or projects and if so, did you find one to be more beneficial over the other? You can find us on Twitter and Bookface and of course, you can subscribe for free on iTunes and Stitcher!
