Photographers Helping Photographers

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.

Episode 50 ~ Interview With Darlene Hildebrandt

Episode 50 ~ Interview With Darlene Hildebrandt

ep50 DarleneThe Business of Photography

That’s right — we have a jammed packed show with some bits and bites on the business side of photography, also known as the head-scratcher … and often the cause of brain throb. To make this a lot easier, we invited wonderful local photographer and businesswoman, Darlene Hildebrandt, to sit down in the ol’ Shutter Time bunker and have a chat.

He’s Back

Of course, we were not alone for the interview, as a regular, yet always uninvited guest popped up for the show. Yeah, you know I’m talking about Uncle Murphy. Collective sighs across the mics! It’s all good though, as Murphy and his law can’t stop us from doing what we love to do best, and that’s chat about photography!

Audio blips aside, we hope you love the show and take away some valuable information to apply to your world of photography. Thanks again, Darlene, for hanging out and giving us your time and expertise!

The Joy of Community

We’ve set up our little own Google Plus community, but it’s been quiet as hell in there! Please join the conversation, post some photos and start chatting! We’ll jump in, along with others, we hope. We’re just all waiting for you to break the ice. Nice, right?

We’d love for you to chime in, so please leave a comment here, find us on the Twitters, Google Plus and / or Facebook. You can also subscribe for free via iTunes!

That’s it for show notes this week, folks, as you’re going to want to get to steppin’, as my good friend always says, and just dive in and absorb the goodness Darlene has to offer!

Thanks as always for tuning in!

Cheers, y’all!

Episode 5 »» iPad, Workshops, & Mac's Little Secret

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!
