Peter Hurley has some stories to tell and an infectious personality that keeps you wanting more. From his early days as a competitive sailor on the US team, to his years as a model working with legendary photographers like Bruce Weber, to his current status as one of the country's leading headshot photographers, he's lived a full life and he's not close to being done yet.  Although Hurley definitely had a few lucky rolls of the dice, and some amazing mentors that would come into his life, he has made a career for himself through a serious work ethic and a hunger to keep learning and growing as an artist and an entrepreneur.  Peter gives us a behind the scenes look into the life of a busy photographer and businessman. He has not only had success behind the lens, but has created the largest network of headshot and portrait photographers in the world with The Headshot Crew, and has become a leading voice in photography education.  His honesty and insight into what he feels like has made him successful make this a "must listen" episode of the podcast.

American Photo Magazine once named Rich Clarkson as one of the top 50 most influential individuals in American Photography.  After talking with him for an hour, we definitely understand why.  From his early years behind the lens, shooting what would become some very iconic images for Sport Illustrated, to his position as the Director of Photography for National Geographic, Rich has had a storied career spanning 7 decades and still going strong.  He currently heads up Clarkson Creative, the company he founded, and leads workshop retreats all over the country featuring some of today's top shooters.  He has seen the photography world grow and change from the early days of film, to the current state of digital technology, and has somehow continued to stay on top of the game and be a relevant voice to a younger generation.  To say the man has some stories would be an understatement.  It's like hanging out with your grandpa, if your grandpa was once shooting black and white portraits of a college aged Wilt Chamberlain when he played for the Kansas Jayhawks.  This is by far the most veteran photographer we have had on the show, and it will be hard to set the bar any higher.  So sit back and enjoy our conversation with a legend of the industry.

At an early age, Melissa Rodwell found herself flipping through the pages of her Mom's copies of Harper's Bazaar and Vogue Magazine.  She quickly became fascinated by fashion and inspired with the culture that surrounded it.  After having the opportunity to see a Helmut Newton exhibition in Paris at the age of 17, she saw the possibility of combining a love of fashion with her new love of photography.   Melissa studied at the prestigious Art Center in California and started learning the craft that would soon take her all over the world.  During that time she found a lot of inspiration from her true love of Rock 'n' Roll Music and the burgeoning punk scene happening in LA during the 80s.  She would go on to take that aesthetic and create a look that would put her into the very pages of the magazines she loved as a child.  After years of shooting, she decided to take a hiatus and ended up stumbling into the world of blogging. This would eventually lead her to create her company Breed, that provides online education and insider information to people in the world of Fashion Photography.  Melissa continues to create beautiful fashion work and has returned to her original love of rock music to create her newest project Alice Magazine, which combines fashion, music, and the rock aesthetic.  Join us as we hear an in-depth version of this story and some inspiring advice from Melissa Rodwell.

Adventure and documentary filmmaker / photographer Rob Frost hobbled into our studio recently after going through an experimental new surgery to help rebuild his shattered heel after a climbing accident.  Although his mood was hopeful and positive about the recovery ahead, we got a chance to dive into some of the darkness that exists when you are sidelined from an injury and not able to do the work you love and forced to reevaluate the things you hold dear.  Rob tells us about growing up a young rambunctious kid in the northeast and pushing the limits with his friends even then.  He was a ski racer at a young age, but soon fell in love with rock climbing.  After college, he found himself working as a climbing guide but started to work on a small movie about the local climbing scene that would quickly change his life.  After the movie found it's way to the Banff Film Festival and helped Rob launch a new career path, he quickly began to attract the attention of others and began to travel the world shooting the adventures he loved.  Rob has had the opportunity to shoot for a huge roster of clients, cover the world famous Iditarod dog sled race for years, and was nominated for an Emmy for the work he did for 60 minutes filming a piece about the free soloist climber Alex Honnald.  We wish Rob the best of luck and the speediest of recoveries and hope to see him hanging from a rope soon doing what he loves best.
