When Sid is Away

The chaps get real. Deep. Therapeutic even. Welcome to the black couch sessions. While these black couch sessions are nothing new to Shutter Time and we have been doing this for years, we thought we would take to the mics once again after a series of tweets, comments and posts from numerous photographers of late. Thanks to our great friend, Usually Happy Dave, for sparking this episode with his tweet wondering if he has created enough.

Please join Mac and some of our favourite photographers and great friends of the show, Clay Daly, Antonio M. Rosario and Mark Reirson for another engaging conversation on handling the struggles with photography and that ever so present social media connection.

Huge thanks to our friends for joining us on the show and getting personal with their photography!

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!

Between Dust and Sky » The 100th Hand Hills Lake Stampede

Photography projects are interesting. Cool even. Usually projects take a long time from beginning to end, filled with challenges, surprises, some lows and hopefully, many more highs. Two Alberta photographers and good friends of the show, Ward Rosin and Mark Reierson, embarked on such a journey and hit the Shutter Time mics to share their collaborative efforts with us. Please join us as we learn of the project itself, lessons learned, their personal satisfaction, and more from these talented chaps.

Can’t Stop Him

Our very good pal, Mark Reierson, agreed to come on over and join us for another good ol’ fashioned photography discussion. This marks his third appearance on the show and we already want him back for more. We catch up with Mark and learn what’s he has been up to before we dive in with our main chat.

Finding Your Way

As a continuation from episode 131, we scratch the surface of Mac’s lingering question of realizing your own vision for creating art and making images.  Please join us as we three souls discuss this and more!

Join the Convo

How do you feel about finding your vision when it comes to photography? Is the need for making images led by hunger, social interaction or something more? We’d love to hear your thoughts. You can find us Bookface and Twitter! You can also subscribe free via iTunes and Stitcher.

Thanks again, Mark, for the good chat! Please make sure to check out his work here. You can also find him at the Humans of Calgary Facebook page.

Thanks as always for tuning in!

Cheers, y’all!

The Canadian Portraitist Revisited 

We brought back one of our previous guests, Calgary photographer Mark Reierson, to be a guest co-host for the night. Before we dive straight in with our main topic of the night, we took a few moments to catch up with Mark.  Have a listen and find out what he’s been up to!

The Face of the Story – Breaking News Photography

As humans, we often think about historical events and the impact these events have had on our world — our society and ourselves. As photographers, we can take it a step further and wonder why a particular image or a series of images was chosen to visually represent an event. A single image has the power to become the face of history, triumph and far too many times, tragedy. Why?

Many of these well known photographs and the photographers who made them have a collection of awards and other distinctions, including the Pulitzer Prize for one of the current (or former) photography categories. It’s often one or two photos, which remain in our minds – perhaps forever, and it led us to wonder what makes a photograph so powerful it has become the chosen one? We took to our mics to figure this out in an attempt to satisfy our curiosity.

Join the Convo

When you think of the breaking news events in our world, do you look to the photography to help tell the story or skip right to the audio, video and/or text ? Are there any images burned in your brain where they become the image you think of first when it comes to remembering such events? What do you think makes an image so powerful? We’d love to hear your take on this. You can find us on Bookface and Twitter as well as this site. You can also subscribe for free via iTunes and Stitcher! Thanks to the comments and continued interaction, our friends. Always welcomed and very much appreciated!

Thanks again to Mark for coming back on the show! Please make sure you take a moment or two (or many!) and check out his work. You can also order his book via Blurb here!

Thanks for tuning in!

Cheers, y’all!
