Giving Back

While there has been buzz about a free for all photography site such as Unsplash for several years, one we have recently covered twice here on the show, it has been the two recent videos from Zack Arias that have really caught the attention of photographers. In a curious and well thought out manner, he talks about the concerns and impact such a system can have for photographers and on the photography industry itself. While both videos are worth watching, the continued conversation from Arias and those who have responded to his videos and blog posts, has us thinking more about giving back as photographers. What does this mean exactly?

Switch This

One of the show’s greatest friends, fellow podcaster, and our brother from another mother, Antonio M. Rosario, has joined us once again to wrap up our Unsplash trilogy. You may know him as one-half of the fantastic photography podcast, Street Shots, hosted by the Switch to Manual chaps, Antonio and Tom. Please join us as we discuss our final thoughts on this topic, as well as how photographers can give back.

Switch to Manual 

Not only do the STM chaps host a great podcast, they also offer other goodness for photographers. One of the cooler services are portfolio reviews! We covered the review process on the show a while back when our Mac had his portfolio reviewed by STM. You can check it out on episode 128. Please check out their services, their kickin’ podcast, Street Shots, and more!

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!

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.
