Rubbish

Inspired by an article written by Eric Kim, we started to wonder when it comes to making images, is it better to create rubbish work or not to create anything at all? We couldn’t seem to agree on this top as per our usual Shutter Time style and history, so we took to the mics to discuss this further.

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?

Emo Mac

It took a kindhearted friend and some juicy rolls of film, but we think Emo Mac is no more. Huge thanks and props to our mate Dom for your act of kindness towards our Mac! Now he can stop eyeing his wife’s Fuji. Whew!

Seeking Stillness

Mac shares with us a new book, Seeking Stillness, from Alberta photographer, Olivier Du Tré. He also mentions a video from the chaps at The Camera Store, featuring Olivier, that is worth the watch!

Your Artistic Calling

During our last show, we touched on our artistic calling, knowing it would be a subject we would want to revisit at some point. Our great friend of the show, Mark Reierson, has joined us to discuss this further. Is photography our passion, our calling, or something else? Please join us as we tackle this subject with Mark!

Episode 159 »» Brand Whoring with Dave SzweduikYou Asked. Critique Revisited.

We answer an interesting question from our Bookface page about critique, so we answered the question with a little help from Dave, all the while channeling our pals, Olaf and Antonio.

Yup. We Said That.

And hell, yes, we went there. Brand whoring. It needed to be addressed, so we decided to bring out wonderfully talented friend of the show, Dave “Swizzbob” Szweduik, back for another chat. Much like the tourism orgs we have discussed in the past, we started to wonder if not only are we doing the brands a huge free service when we heavily pimp our images out on social media, tagging said brands, and more importantly, are we doing ourselves a disservice by interrupting the art of arting? You decide.

Join the Convo

We’d love to hear your thoughts on the show and how you feel about focusing so much on the brands. Is there a healthy balance to stay true to your artistic vision as well as soliciting brands, should that be your intent? Please chime in by commenting on the blog (we will catch up on comments, promise), or leaving a comment on Bookface or Twitter. As always, you can subscribe for free via iTunes and Stitcher!

Big thanks to Swizzbob for coming back on the show once again. We so enjoy sending out the bat signal to see if he will answer and he never lets us down! Do yourselves a favour and check out his fantastic tech podcast, digitalSoup, and his photography  work.

Thanks to everyone for tuning in and for the Bookface and Twitter questions!

Cheers, y’all!
