The Great Return  | #changetheconversation

It’s been just over a year and we were finally able to bring back our pal and good friend to the show, incredible photographer, Olaf Sztaba! He penned a couple of great articles on his thoughts on the social media/photo communities that had some scratching their heads about their own involvement in the online photo industry. Consider it a serendipitous moment if you will, as Mac and I were discussing the very same thing off the air, so we knew Olaf was meant to appear on this episode! Please join us as we take the mics to discuss these very topics and also find out what Olaf is up to today.

Join the Convo

We’d love to hear your thoughts on the show and the articles if you’ve had the change to read them. Has your online involvement ever impacted your own process of making images? We would love to hear about it – the good and the bad, if any. You can find us at Bookface or Twitter! Of course, you can subscribe for free at iTunes or check us out at Stitcher.

Huge thanks to Olaf for coming back on the show! Please make sure to check out his work and the two articles (links at the bottom of the post).

Thanks for tuning in!

Cheers, y’all!

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!

Congrats and huge props to our fantastic brothers from another mother, Tom and Antonio, the Switch to Manual chaps, as they celebrate their 50th podcast episode! We look forward to the next 50! Please make sure to check out the episode!

When Once Isn’t Enough

After this tweet, we knew we needed to continue the conversation from our last episode, Episode 153 »» Arting with Dave Szweduik, so we not only brought Dave back for more, but we also invited our good pal, Bryan Minear, back for a chat!

Please join us as we further discuss the art of arting with these two great friends of the show! We also take some time to catch up with Bryan to learn what he has been up to these past few months. We are also happy to hear Dave is back with season 2, episode 101 of his vlog!

Episode 151 »» Golden Ratio, My ArseHappy New Year!

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!
