My guest today is Pia Parolin, she was on the French Riviera, on the evening of 14 July 2016, a truck was deliberately driven into crowds of people celebrating Bastille Day on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice. The horrible event resulted in the deaths of 86 people and the injury of over 450 others.
Although she would never look at the famous promenade the same again, she decided to document happier days again and started a series called Promenade Moments.
Today is a new Q&A and photo challenge episode and I invited Andy McSweeney AKA Andy McPhoto to co-host with me. We answer questions about gear theft prevention and the problem of wearing glasses and looking through the view finder. We also announce the winners of the last photo challenge and announce a new one.
Mikey Huff is a photographer and founder of ‘The Wool Sock Project’ based in Anchorage, Alaska. Mikey began distributing care packages to those living on the streets across Alaska, which included a pair of wool socks to help combat the freezing temperatures. Mikey exchanged these for a conversation, documenting these moments through portrait images. Mikey's career path is carved by his curiosity for humans, he believes the best way to improve the world around you is to use your strengths to lift up the community around you.
This is a new case study episode. We are talking about balancing a full time career with an emerging photography career. With guest podcast listener Mike Branch and guest co-host Steve Brokaw.
This week I invited Omar Z Robles on the show. I had the chance to meet him a couple of times and co-host a photo walk with him in NYC in 2016. You’ve all seen his work with dancers. Today I invite you to get to know the man behind the lens and learn about the passion that fuels his creativity.
