David Carson is considered by many to be one of the most influential graphic designers in the world.  From his early days with Transworld Skateboard Magazine, to his days at Ray Gun Magazine, to the work he's done for some of the biggest corporations in the world, David has always been leading the charge to push the limits of design.  On this episode of the podcast we get the opportunity to sit down with the legendary designer and talk about growing up in California, his pro surfing career, and what made him leave a secure teaching job to become a graphic designer.   Whether you think you know David's work or not, you've most likely been around it and even influenced by it.  It was his cutting edge typography and "out of the box" ideas on design that began to create the graphic aesthetic that would come to represent skateboarding and so much of the southern Californian culture and would go on to find it's way into branding all over the world.  David grew up surfing at a young age and soon found he had what it took at the time to become a nationally ranked pro on the competition circuit.  After graduating from college with a degree in Sociology, David went on to work jobs in the surf industry before settling down as a teacher at a prestigious school.  But it would be a chance encounter with a graphic design seminar that would end up changing his life and pointing him down the path towards a creative career.  On this episode we talk about  how he approaches each design job, what it takes to make it in the creative world, what he feels sets a good photographer's work apart from others, and what he thinks of the current state of design.  So sit back and enjoy this two hour conversation with David Carson.

Photographer, surfer, and intrepid traveler Dylan Gordon joins us on the podcast fresh off a trip from Cuba to talk about his current success as a young shooter who has quickly created a client list that many would dream of.  Already, at age 24, he has had the opportunity to travel the world many times over in search of a good composition. Dylan tells us about growing up on a horse ranch in California and the early inspiration he would receive from his very talented father who passed away while Dylan was still in college.  It was during that time that Dylan would realize that one of the greatest gifts his dad had given him was a work ethic and drive that kept him pushing towards his goals of becoming a photographer during a difficult time in his life.  After getting the opportunity to intern with another one of our guests Chris Burkard, and really seeing some of the hustle that went into production and going after clients, Dylan set out on his own and soon got the opportunity to work with Surfer magazine.  With each new milestone he accomplished, Dylan continued to shoot more subject matter, inspired to tell the story of the interesting people around him.  Whether he was shooting motorcycle culture for the clothing company Iron and Resin in his new hometown of Ventura, or travel images of the people of Mongolia, Dylan approached each assignment with a fresh look and genuine interest in the subject and people involved.  Although Dylan is one of the youngest guests we've had on the show, he has already produced a beautiful body of work and has become a sought after shooter by many companies.  He's a prime example of what we have always argued that there are plenty of hard workers and hustlers coming out the younger generation.  So sit back and get inspired to take an epic vacation by listening to our conversation with Dylan Gordon.

What other photographer can say they were a character in a video game?  That's a great jumping off point to start talking about the storied career of photographer Atiba Jefferson. Although he's had the opportunity to shoot everything from the NBA to celebrity portraiture, it was the world of skateboarding that changed Atiba's life and helped create the amazing body of work he has today.  On this episode of the podcast we talk about his humble beginnings in a small town in Colorado with his single mom and twin brother, and his early passion for skateboarding and the culture that surrounded it.  It was the bad luck of a broken hand that first put a camera in front of Atiba, but once he started seeing the black and white film come to life in the solution, he knew what he wanted to do with his life.  Through a series of "right time / right place" circumstances, and the hustlers mentality and work ethic that comes from being raised by a single mom, Atiba went on to head to Southern California and chase his dream of being a skateboard photographer.  He quickly began to move through the ranks and soon found himself working with the top pros in the industry and publishing with the magazines he had read as a kid.  We talk about what Atiba thinks it took to get his foot in the door and how that evolved into shooting some of the biggest names in the NBA and the music industry.  We also talk about the business opportunities outside of photography that he has gone on to be a part of, including opening several bars, a coconut water company, and helping to create the Skate Board Mag.  After years of shooting, and what most would call a lot of success in the industry, Atiba has some thoughts and advice on how to stay creative, not get burnt out, and keep making great work.
