Episode 300

This week marks the 300th episode of the podcast. So first off, thank you to everyone who tunes in and listens to the podcast. It really means the world to me that you all tune in and check out what is going on with the podcast. As I mention about a third of the way into this week’s show, this podcast is about all the experiences that I have about how photography impacts my life both just every day and creatively. It isn’t about gear, techniques, or fads, so I know it has a niche market. I do appreciate that you come back every week to listen.

As I got to thinking about the 300th episode, I got to thinking about milestones and celebrations. I personally am not one to celebrate many milestones, and I think that is a mistake. The podcast prep got me thinking about how much there is to celebrate, both big and small. We should all find ways to celebrate all the great things we do and things that happen in our photography. Those small rewards can be a big deal in keeping us going. So like rolling 100,000 miles on the odometer and thinking about all the great trips in the car, find in your photography the cool things that happen, and find a way to celebrate them each and every time. You might be surprised and what you get out of the celebration.

Now as I mentioned at the start, it is time for me to head off and celebrate this milestone with a little glass of Midleton.

As always, I hope you and yours are safe, and please remember to keep safe and wear your mask.

In this week’s podcast, I share some thoughts on pricing your work and selling your work as art for the wall. Rather than focusing on what to price, I’ll share with you some of the key things to consider when pricing your work and taking those first step

Has digital really changed photography that much?

Has digital really changed photography that much?

Normally when I get asked about film and digital, I talk about the darkroom days being less and less easy to find, changes in media, or how the industry has shifted. I might tell a story about how I used to work versus how I work today. This time I had a very quick response that could have been seen as tongue in cheek, but in the end, it seemed to be an answer that really resonated in the conversation. After all, a story is a story, and light is light.

This week’s podcast talks about my answer to this wonderful question and how I have evolved over time as a photographer to land on what I think is a great way to think about how we all deal with changes in the photographic industry.
