Shutter Time mate and fellow Albertan, Mark Reierson, joined us for a chat about his 100 Strangers Project. He shares with us the challenges of taking on such a project, the rewards and what lessons he has learned. He also discusses the true power of a photograph – something he recently discovered after photographing one of his downtown Calgary strangers. We also convinced Mark to let us in on a student’s perspective from The Arcanum, Trey Ratcliff’s Magical Academy of Artistic Mastery (their words, not mine!). Kick back and have a listen as we listen to this hella charming photographer! All photos on this post are courtesy of Mark Reierson!

Fuji Rant

Yes, it happens…sometimes they’re not everything we make them out to be. Fujifilm North America has rolled out a new rental program for their X Series gear. But silly Canadians, don’t be getting all excited, because two Fuji employees made sure to let me know Canada does their own thing and has no part of North America. Hurt bunny feelings aside, it sounds like a great program if you’re American!

Hella Expense Squeaky Toy

Totally pasting this from the last episode, ha: One of our Shutter Time pals, Darcy Evans, a local photographer specializing in pet photography is raising funds to cover the surgery costs for his puppychow, Samantha. He is offering limited edition prints of a shoot he did inspired by the well known Coolidge paintings(dogs playing poker)! Check out his YouTube video showing the behind the scenes of this shoot. Wishing Samantha a speedy recovery!

Keep on Truckin’

We sit down with one of our newer listeners, Steve Graham, and chat about all things photography. He gets down to business and dishes his experience on workshops (in person and online), podcasts and other online formats, which well known photographer he truly relates with, his struggles and hopes with his craft and more! Not gonna lie, folks – it’s a long chat, but it’s good because it’s completely genuine and comes from someone who is not only engaging, but has obvious passion for his craft. Well worth the listen, I say!

Poet, Actor, Director, Songwriter, Vulcan and Photographer

The world lost a wonderful photographer this week, Leonard Nimoy. Most knew him as an actor, but in addition to other forms of creativity, he was also an established and talented photographer.  If you haven’t already, make sure to check out his work. Scott Bourne also posted a tribute to Nimoy on Photofocus, also worth a read.

What will be your best memories of Leonard Nimoy? We’d love to hear them! What are your thoughts on workshops, in person or online? Any experiences you’d like to share? Send us a tweet, drop us a note on this blog or visit us at Bookface or Google Plus (right? right?). You can also subscribe for free via iTunes and Stitcher! Thanks so much for coming on the show and hanging out with us, Steve! We hope to see you back on the show in 6 months!

Thanks as always for tuning in!

In the words of the magnanimous Mr. Nimoy, live long and prosper.

The Ipad Blues

Mac, being the ever so dedicated photographer, decided to add his iPad 2 to his workflow, but ran into some obstacles along the way when it came to a photo editing app, Snapseed. Have a listen to his troubles and if you can offer some insight or a solution, please leave a comment below!

Workshops, Tours, Seminars, Oh My! 

What the hell is the difference between a photography workshop, photo tour or seminar, you ask? Good bloody question. Since there are no clear definitions, we took some of what the photographers who offer such services define them to be and then came up with our own conclusion. Have a listen, as we break them down as best we can and offer some suggestions on helping choose what’s right for you.

If you have attended a workshop (online or in person), photo tour or expedition, seminar or have taken an actual photography course, why not tell us about it? We’d love to hear the opinions of others.

Bits ‘n Bites

Christa Meola: Mac’s a huge fan. ‘Nuff said. You might just have stumbled upon Mac’s little secret

Thanks for listening!

Cheers, y’all!
