In this podcast episode, I talk to Erin Babnik about her views on the creative process. The creative process can be just that; a process. The problem with some photographers is that they don’t always know how to deal with creativity and all of the things that come with it. When the creative process is […]

The word “Hustle” gets thrown around a lot on the world wide web and it shouldn’t be. Why? Because the word “Hustle” is getting watered down. It’s losing its meaning. The severity of the word is becoming, well, less severe. We need to understand that if we want to improve as photographers we need to […]

Colby Brown has been on the Photography Roundtable Podcast many times before, but I can’t remember a time when we’ve been able to dive deep into the technology world of photography. It’s a shame really because photographers love their gear and love to explore newly released products. Colby knows a lot about what has been […]

There are two striking things about James Barkman that made me want to have him on the Photography Roundtable Podcast. He shoots film (and thinks you should too) He lives out of his van (by choice, not necessity) I knew that James was going to be a great interview with a lot of great insight […]

If my memory serves me correctly (which is a huge risk) I believe this is Jon Secord’s third time to come on the Photography Roundtable Podcast. I’ve had Jon on in the past to discuss his work and his process in planning locations, but I do enjoy the talks I get to have with good […]

You know, I’m very comfortable behind the microphone as the interviewer. I’m not so comfortable being the interviewee. However, my good friend Carl Van den Boom asked me to be on his new podcast, The Photopreneur Podcast, a while back. While I don’t always agree that I’m a good guest, I thought some of the […]

I really enjoy having my good friend Hubert Matsuda on the podcast because he brings such a positive vibe and Hawaiian flair. Maybe that’s what he’s dubbed the “Matsuda Effect” to life. On this podcast episode we are going to talk about the Matsuda effect in photography post-processing. If you have ever doubted the importance […]

When I was asked to share some of my thoughts of travel photography with a photography group in St. Louis, I started to think about what travel photography even meant to me. Why do I enjoy it so much? What am I supposed to do with photography? One experience I had in September of 2013 […]

What’s amazing about photography is that I’m almost always able to predict the questions that some people will ask me. One of the questions I can predict recently in classes or workshops is, “What’s in your bag?” I admit, it’s a great question that should be discussed. However I want to respond to that question […]

I’ve covered this topic several times on the photography roundtable podcast, and it truly pains me and bothers me that I have to cover it again. Photography etiquette is becoming a HUGE issue in the world. I’m hearing more and more stories about photographers being rude, not taking care of photo locations, and wreaking havoc […]

Kevin Jordan is another one of those photographers that I’ve had an email and social media friendship with for a long time now. He’s even provided a couple articles for Photography Roundtable.

I’ve been following Hubert Matsuda for a long time now. Actually, I’ve been following him since he asked me to critique his Instagram feed. After seeing his Instagram, I emailed him back to say that he didn’t need my help. Hubert and I have had a few comments back and forth since that original introduction, […]

I’ve been a photographer a long time and if there’s one thing I’ve learned it’s that there are a vast amount of haters in the world. Haters gonna hate, and they’re going to come at you if you make your work public. In this podcast I share personal stories about dealing with people who are […]

There are a lot of things that go into a photograph that can make it great. Photographers spend an unusual amount of time planning out photographs, shooting photographs, and finally editing photographs. During the process you might have multiple moments when you think that the photo is going to be amazing and you can’t wait […]
