Episode 187 »» Too Much Tech – Is Art Disappearing?

Let’s Talk Ethics 

Our good friend of the show, Bart Busschots, released the latest episode of his Let’s Talk Photography podcast which was partially inspired by our recent episode about ethical photography with Antonio M. Rosario, episode 184. It is another great episode by Bart, so please check it out! Thanks for the shout-out, Bart!

Social Media Follow-up

As a follow-up to episode 185, we chat about an article that has since come out about photographer, Dave Morrow, who traded in his large social media following for the good life to focus on his photography. Was this a crazy move?

Too. Much. Tech?

We took to the mics to discuss the feeling by many that art is disappearing due to the availability of advanced tech in our photography world. Is this truly the case and we are allowing the tech to do our work for us or is the art of arting relevant and important as ever?

Episode 186 »» Finding Masha Ivashintsova

The End of an Era

Our brothers from another mother, the power duo known as Antonio and Tom from Switch to Manual, made a big announcement on their latest episode of Street Shots, episode 69. Please join us as we talk about Street Shots, Masha Ivashintsova, and more!

Finding Masha

The work of late photographer, Masha Ivashintsova, was discovered when boxes of negatives were found by a family member and are now being shared with the public. PetaPixel compared her to the Russian Vivian Maier. While we do not think this necessarily calls for a comparison of the two women, it is still exciting to find lost photographs and hope to learn more about this woman and her photography.

Where’s Art? 

Legendary wildlife and nature photographer, Art Wolfe, has collaborated with sports/nature/travel photographer, Mitch Stringer, to produce a visual podcast about Art’s travels around the world. These short episodes give us stunning photography and great information from Art and Mitch. Definitely worth the watch!

Join the Convo:

We would love to hear your thoughts on the discovery of Masha Ivashintsova’s photographs! Have you ever found any old photographs yourself? We would love to hear about it. You can chime in and find us on Twitter and Bookface. You can also subscribe to the show for free via iTunes or Stitcher. If you would like to support the show and help with some of the costs of running this podcast, please check us out on Patreon (any support is appreciated!).

Best of luck to our American brother, Tom Martinez! We thank you for all the great content on Street Shots and Switch to Manual and your support of our show! You will be missed on Street Shots and we look forward to a surprise visit on the show now and again. If you have yet to do so, please check out the Street Shots podcast and let Antonio know you’ve stopped by!

Thanks so much as always for tuning in, friends!

Cheers, y’all!

Batman Rises Once Again

Canon Forever?

Canon U.S.A. is a recipient of the prestigious Public Alliance Corporate Stewardship award for their partnership and support of Yellowstone Forever and their commitment to wildlife conservation.

So, Who’s in Control Here?

With the news VCG now has full ownership of 500px, the rise and fall of Vero, the regular shenanigans at Instagram and more, we started to wonder once again – who is in control with our photography? It would appear to some there are even ‘rules’ in place when it comes socializing our individual photography experience, so we took to the mics to discuss taking back control. Please join us as we are joined by our great pal, Usually Happy Dave, to discuss curating our photography online and more.

Join the Convo:

We would love to hear if you support brands who demonstrate corporate stewardship and responsibility and who these brands are (let’s give them props!). How do you feel about socializing and curating your photography work and experience online? You can chime in and find us on Twitter and Bookface. You can also subscribe to the show for free via iTunes or Stitcher. If you would like to support the show and help with some of the costs of running this podcast, please check us out on Patreon (any support is appreciated!).

Huge thanks to our Usually Happy Dave for answering the bat signal and joining us for another great discussion. Make sure you check out his photography work and the fantastic redesign of his site, as well as his weekly crazy-fun tech podcast, digitalSoup!

Thanks so much as always for tuning in, friends!

Cheers, y’all!

You Can’t Stop Him 
He’s back once again! Okay, this is because we keep bringing him back on the show as we love talking all things photography with him. You may know him as our brother from another mother, one-half of the ultra good-looking duo of the Street Shots podcast, Antonio M. Rosario from Switch to Manual.

Code of Ethics
Ethics in our everyday world are becoming more important, and photography is no exception. With so many questions about ethical photography, we decided to invite Antonio to hit the mics with us and tackle this never-ending subject. Please join us as we have a slice of gear chat and then dive right in to the topic of ethical photography.

Join the Convo
Do you have an idea of where ethics belong in photography? Is it genre specific to do you think it applies to anything and everyone we photograph?

If you would like to support the show and help with some of the costs of running this podcast, please check us out on Patreon (any support is appreciated!).

Huge thanks to Antonio for dropping by for a visit and another great chat. Do yourselves a favour and check out his personal work as well as the Switch to Manual site, including the awesome Street Shots podcast!
