On this episode of the podcast we get the chance to sit down with legendary Magnum photographer David Alan Harvey and talk about the universal language of photography and those who have risen to the level of poets.  His love for this language started at a very early age.  As a child, stricken with polio and confined to hospital wards, David spent a lot of time looking through books and magazines, experiencing what was going on in the outside world through photographs. He also had a lot of time to search the depths of his developing personality and passions and get a head start on knowing who he was and what he wanted to be.  It wasn't until later though, while on a camping trip at the age of 12, that David looked out of his tent one morning and wondered why he didn't have a camera to capture the beautiful scene he was staring at.  From that moment on, David would pursue the art of photography and would stop at nothing less than achieving the dreams he had started to envision.  From his early days as a newspaper photographer, working under another legend in the photo world Rich Clarkson, to his 7 years as a staff photographer with National Geographic, to finally finding his home with Magnum, David has traveled the world many times over trying to tell the human story.  He's won countless awards, published a huge list of books, and has been featured in galleries around the world, but he's still not satisfied and he's definitely not done. We talk about what has kept him inspired and motivated for all these years, what advice he gives to others about creating work that matters, and where he pulls the most inspiration from.  So enjoy our conversation with a photography icon.

This week on the show we get the chance to talk with Actor, Skateboarder, Entrepreneur, and, most important to this show, avid film photographer Jason Lee.  Whether you know him from his days as a cutting edge professional street skater, his cult classic character Brodie in "Mall Rats", the lead singer of Stillwater in "Almost Famous", or everyone's favorite apologist Earl Hickey, you definitely know him.  What you might not have known, is that Jason Lee has spent the last 16 years devouring everything he could learn about film photography and creating a beautiful body of work with an amazing collection of vintage cameras.  Recently he partnered up with Refueled Magazine to create a limited addition coffee table book of his peel apart polaroid work that features images from his travels across the American West.  They are currently working on the second edition and Jason has plans on returning to the road in his old truck to continue shooting.  On this episode we talk about the early days of street skating, the influence that Mark Gonzales had on him, what made him want to be an actor, working with directors like Kevin Smith and Cameron Crowe, and what made him pick up a camera in the first place.  Jason has gone on to help inspire others to have a passion for film photography by starting Film Photographic, an online curated forum for people to show their work, with more plans coming soon.

We're back!! And since winter is in the air, we thought it would be appropriate to kick off Season 2 of the podcast with someone who is definitely familiar with winter, and has been providing us with some inspirational snowboard photos for years.  On this episode of the podcast we talk to Snowboard and Action Sports Photographer Scott Serfas.  He tells us about growing up in the suburbs of Vancouver and the event that would have him trading in his dreams of being a proffesional skier for a snowboard and never looking back.  It was his love of the mountains, and his desire to figure out a way to stay in them, that finally led him to try his hand at photography after walking away from a job in the trades as a plumber.  Although his parents weren't too excited about seeing their son leave a good paying job, it wasn't long before he had landed several publications and started getting some of the validation he needed to think maybe it might work.  Since those early published photos, Scott has gone on to be one of Transworld Snow's most veteran senior photographers and has had the opportunity to shoot all over the world for companies like Red Bull and Brain Farm Media.  During our conversation we got the chance to ask Scott how he stays motivated to keep shooting, how he balances his family life with a professional life of travel, how he stays relevant in the world of action sports, what it's like to have to be the old guy in the room surrounded by young athletes, and what motivated him to partner up in other ventures like his own snowboard company.  It was a fun conversation that we think you'll enjoy and hopefully have you out there looking for adventures of your own.
