On this episode of the podcast we sit down with Nikon Ambassador and adventure travel photographer and filmmaker Lucas Gilman to hear his story of growing up in the mountains of western Colorado and turning his life long passion for the outdoors into an amazing body of work and a successful career as a photographer and filmmaker.  Fresh off a whirlwind trip through Hawaii, Tahiti, and Iceland, Lucas tells us about a new 8K film project he is working on and what it's like to test out  products for a company like Nikon. Although Lucas was always inspired by the mountains, it was his father, a fly fishing guide, that gave him his first lessons on making a living by doing what you love.  During his college years at University of Colorado at Boulder, Lucas studied journalism and was soon shooting as a stringer for a large newspaper.  But it wasn't long before the mountains were calling him back to his first love and he started shooting the sports that he had grown up around.  He began building a portfolio of skiing, climbing, and kayaking and forming relationships with some of the top athletes in the world who would eventually help propel him into the spotlight as a respected adventure sports shooter.  Lucas has gone on to work with a huge roster of commercial and editorial clients,  shooting everything from surfing to luxury cars.  During our conversation we get the chance to talk about what Lucas feels is the key to forming long lasting client relationships, what's it like to be a Nikon Ambassador, balancing family life with the hectic schedule of a travel photographer, staying current with the newest trends in photography, and how he stays motivated to keep pushing forward.  So enjoy this conversation and insight into the industry with a photographer who will inspire you to keep growing as an artist.

On this episode of the podcast we have the opportunity to sit down for an inspiring conversation with photographer, filmmaker, adventure lover, and cancer survivor Ben Moon.  Many of you know Ben from his heartfelt short film "Denali", that chronicled the last days of his dog that had been with him through so much of his life, and became a viral sensation and an award winning piece on the film festival circuit.  Although that film definitely helped push Ben onto the national stage, he had already built a career and a lifestyle that many would admire, working with companies like Patagonia and shooting music videos and photos for several well known musicians.  Growing up in a small Michigan town with a father who preferred to do things his own way, Ben learned the value of self sustainability at an early age and was taught how to live off the land, hunt, and farm for food, and build the things he needed.  Although Ben spent plenty of time in the woods as a kid, it wasn't until his college years that he would began to realize his athletic abilities and a love for rock climbing.  It was through climbing that Ben would decide to make the move out west, freshly married and ready to start a new life.  He settled in Portland and began trying to figure out what the next chapter of his life would look like, but sometimes it's tragedy that sends us in the direction we need.  It would be a fairly heartbreaking divorce that would end up being the driving force for Ben's next chapter and the catalyst to picking up a camera and start a new life.  Ben's early photos were of the things he loved most, and he was fortunate enough to have some good mentors along the way.  Before long he was getting published and formed a relationship with Patagonia that has lived on to this day.  During our talk we get the chance to ask Ben what it was like creating a film that dealt with so many personal issues, how he created his newest piece "Off Season" for Yeti, featuring his road trip with MLB pitcher and fellow photography lover Daniel Norris, and hear about his battle with cancer and how he stayed positive and motivated to beat the odds and return to the life of adventure he loved.  So sit back, listen, and be ready to be inspired from our conversation with Ben Moon.
