In this Episode

Well it has been a year since I started the podcast. In this 52nd episode, I look back at a couple of key learning points from the year. As I started the podcast, I learned how hard it is to get audio recorded and sounding normal. I also was reminded that you can just as easily focus on getting new gear to record on or you can focus on learning how to make better content. Just like in my photography, keeping your eye on the final product is so much more important than focusing on new toys.

I also realized in preparing for the show that we often times can focus on the wrong questions to move our work forward. I am looking to get a new camera and like most people, I have been reading specs and reviews. I have been thinking about megapixels, frame rates etc. When I should have been asking a different question. I think the right question to ask is what do I want my next image to look like? Answering that question will tell me more about what I really need from my camera than any review ever could. I also realized in reading reviews how petty and jealous many commenters can be when really working photographers work hard to get where they are.

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.
