On this episode of the podcast we get the chance to sit down with Patagonia's own photographer, director, and creative brand agent Jeff Johnson.  Although he's currently pretty busy with his newest adventure of being a father to his 15 month old daughter, he's best known for documenting amazing trips around the world as a writer, photographer, surfer, climber, and all around interesting guy.  At a very early age, growing up in a small town in California, Jeff's father would take him on trips into the mountains of Tahoe to go skiing.  It was during this time that the seeds of adventure were planted.  When skateboarding and surfing came into Jeff's life as an early teen, he finally felt like he had found his calling, and the trajectory of what his future would hold took a turn that would lead him to living in Hawaii right after high school.  It was there, on the North Shore of Oahu, that Jeff started to meet some of the characters that would provide an abundance of stories to tell, and the confidence to tell his own.  As he tried to make a living as a flight attendant and a life guard on the North Shore, he started to document his surroundings and trips into his journal, and soon began to incorporate the camera as well.  After one of these documented trips was published by the Surfers Journal, Jeff began to get a little more recognition and soon met the man that would give him the chance of a lifetime, Yvon Chouinard.  Jeff moved to Ventura to work with Patagonia.  During this time, he was introduced to a story about Yvon and Doug Tompkins and he started planning the trip of a lifetime to recreate one of their legendary adventures.  That trip became the documentary 180% South, and the rest is history. Jeff has continued to work with Patagonia and has created a beautiful body of work, becoming an ambassador for Leica in the process.  So sit back and listen to our conversation with Jeff Johnson, and get ready to be inspired to get your maps out and start planning your own epic journey.

For our first show of 2017, we get the chance to sit down with one of the most legendary surf photographers in the business, Brian Bielmann.  Although Brian can't say he picked up the camera at an early age and knew he wanted to be a photographer like some of our past guests, he did know from a very early age that all he wanted to do was surf.  From there, he made the fairly logical decision that he would be more likely to make it as a surf photographer than a surfer.  To say he won that gamble would be an understatement.  With over 150 magazine covers to his name, a client list full of some of the biggest brands in the world, and close friendships with almost every superstar surfer you could think of, Brian has made his name known in the world of surfing.  Growing up in Virginia, and looking up to his older brother who was already surfing, Brian would take any chance he could to make the drive to surf the Outerbanks of North Carolina.  Once he graduated High School, he immediately made the journey to the North Shore of Oahu to join his brother and finally get a chance to surf the waves he had been dreaming about as a kid.  It was in Hawaii that Brian made the decision he wanted to be a surf photographer.  He began purchasing equipment and telling others of his plans for his new career.  However, it wasn't until an accident that almost killed him and sidelined him from the water that he began to really take the craft of photography seriously.  Before long he began getting his first publications, and the rest, as they say, is history.  On this episode we get the chance to talk music and vinyl collections, what it's like swimming Pipeline at age 59, how hard it is to make money in the current world of surf photography, and how he stays relevant in a young man's game.  So join us in a fun conversation with a guy who has definitely got some stories to tell.
