National Geographic Explorer and Photographer Ben Horton joins us on the podcast to talk about shooting everything from fashion, to commercial work, to sharks and his newest adventure of starting his own agency Access Network.  Ben tells us stories of growing up in Bermuda with his brother and his artist parents and what would become the foundation of a very creative and DIY mindset.  His father went from cartoonist to being one of the most respected sculptors in America showing Ben and his brother an ethos of what was possible if you put your mind to it, and what "making it" in the creative industry looks like.  Ben's mother, the photographer of the family, gave him a camera at an early age.  When his parents moved the family to Colorado and he began becoming attracted to the mountain lifestyle, the camera started becoming a frequently used tool.  One summer Ben's parents decided they wanted the brothers to travel the world together in order to build a better bond and soon they were telling stories of adventures in New Zealand, Africa, and many other destinations.  During that time Ben started to realize that he wanted to document some of the travesties happening to the planet and before long he was awarded the first ever National Geographic Young Explorers Grant.  That would change his life forever and send him on many more adventures with one of the most iconic names you can put on your resume.  Today we talk about what it looks like to be a National Geographic Photographer, how many times you have to raise the bar on the goals you set for your career, the ups and downs of the creative life, and looking towards the future of photography and business.

National Geographic Photographer and Nikon Ambassador Ami Vitale joins us on the show today, fresh off a return trip from China where she has been working on a project shooting the re-intergration of captive born Pandas to the wild.  Although she is not known as a wildlife photographer, she has been thoroughly tested behind the lens and enjoys the pressure of stepping out of her comfort zone and approaching a new subject with an outsider's perspective.  Ami grew up in South Florida and had a yearning to get out and see the world at a young age.  Even then, she rejected the non stop development of her home town and felt the pull towards protecting the natural environment.  After a stint working for the AP News, she finally decided to take the leap and travel the world with a camera in hand and document the human condition.  During her extensive travels around the globe to over 90 countries, she has established herself as a presence in the world of photography and built a career that many people dream of.  She has shot everything from conflict areas to rhinos and has had the opportunity to speak on many stages to talk about her adventures behind the lens.  On this episode we talk about her love of nature, her desire to help tell the true story of the people and places that are so often misrepresented, what helps to keep her inspired to continue to create, and both of our mixed emotions and sometimes strained relationships with managing social media accounts.  So enjoy this conversation with an inspiring and adventurous woman that proves that you can create the life you want if you work hard enough at it.

When award winning director and producer Kohl Norville first set out to try and create his own commercial on spec, it ended up becoming Heineken's signature piece that they aired during the Olympics.  Not bad for a first attempt.  After years of working with ad agencies, and a background in graphic design and art direction, Kohl wanted the opportunity to try and get behind the camera and help create video pieces to go along with some of the advertising ideas he had in his head. Once he hit the first one out of the park for Heineken, the doors began to open for the chance to keep trying.  Kohl would go on to make many memorable commercial spots for a huge roster of clients and continue to hone his skills not only as a director, but as a collaborator and curator of new rising talent.  Recently Kohl was named the director of content for Motive Made Studios and has had the opportunity to help create and direct content for the last three Super Bowls, as well as work on a new documentary series highlighting the effects that fracking and the oil industry has had on California.  On this episode we talk to Kohl about what it takes to get in the door with ad agencies, the future of content creation and the platforms it will live, the challenges of balancing family life with a very busy work schedule, and the day to day hustle it takes to be successful in the creative field.
