Episode 173 »» Splish Splash: The Saga Continues

4 Chaps + One Lucky Woman

We were lucky enough to have 3 of our favourite photographers and friends of the show on for a good chat. It was our first show with 5 people and we had a blast recording and of course, chatting post-show. Antonio M. Rosario, Bryan Minear, and Dave Szweduik joined Mac and myself to continue the conversation from our last show, episode 172 »» Making a Splash and Giving It Away for Free. The show idea came from Antonio as he live-tweeted whilst listening to our show, with Bryan and Dave joining in on the Twitter chat. Thankfully these chaps were free and next thing we knew, we were all rocking the mics together. Please join us as we carry on the conversation!

We’d love to hear your thoughts on this topic – what do you feel the pros and cons of joining sites like Unsplash are? Do you feel as a photographer, you have any responsibility to other photographers, and even ‘the industry‘ itself? 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!

After 170+ episodes, we have decided to enter the Patreon world, and if you’re so inclined, we would love and appreciate any support. We still need to tinker with the page a bit, however we are up and running! Longtime listeners know we refer to you/them as our sponsors, and this will never change. Most importantly, Mac and I appreciate the support all listeners give us by tuning in and interacting with us, as well as other listeners. Your ears and your time = your true sponsorship.

Huge thanks to Antonio, Bryan, and Dave for clearing your schedules and coming back on the show. These 3 chaps are some of the loveliest, talented, and genuine good guys around and it’s always a blast and rather humbling when they come back on the show. Please take some time to look at their work if you haven’t done so yet (links below).

Thanks again to Antonio for live-tweeting our last episode and for the show idea for 172.

Thanks for tuning in, folks!

Cheers, y’all!

The Bat Signal

You know him. You love him. Our great friend of the show, fellow photographer, podcaster and Batman fan, Dave Szweduik, aka Usually Dave (UD), UHD (Usually Happy Dave), swizzbob and more, has once again answered the bat signal and agreed to join us on the show for a good ol’ photography debate.

Giving Away the Farm

Perhaps not exactly the right phrase, but it seemed fitting regardless. When it comes to our photography – should we be giving it away … for free? Say what? It’s a longstanding and often heated debate in the industry. There are many strong opinions to this question, and here we are in late 2017 still discussing it. What kind of a splash does it make in the industry to license your work for free, not only to individuals, but to companies as well, many who have more than a respectable budget for photography? Does this sour your taste buds or are you a willing participant in this practice? After all, we are only responsible for our own photography, morals, ethics and decisions, right? So, is it terribly naive to think we have an unspoken responsibility or code to “the industry” and our fellow photographers or is it every man/woman for him or herself out there? Please join us as we discuss just that and more!
