This week on the podcast we sit down with commercial lifestyle photographer Magdalena Wosinska.  Although many might know Magda from her popular Instagram account "The Magdalena Experience Volume 1" featuring her beautifully crafted nude self portraits, she has a very long history with photography that stretches back to her early teens and a client list that includes some of the top brands in the world.  Magda, a polish immigrant, moved to this country when she was 8 years old with her parents who were both respected psychology professors.  Although the land of opportunity seemed amazing at first, she quickly started dealing with the pressures of being a young girl in a new country who couldn't speak the language.  She began to feel alienated, but in her early teen years she finally found her voice in the world of skateboarding.  It would be skateboarding that would truly introduce her to the freedom of this country and the characters that come along with it.  And it would be skateboarding that would lead her to a very early career in photography.  Shooting her first overseas assignment at the age of 16, Magda began to slowly carve out a name for herself as one of the few female photographers shooting skateboarding. It would later be a chance to work with legendary photographer Art Streiber where she truly began to tune her craft and the see the potential of photography work outside the world of skateboarding.  On this episode we ask Magda how she manages to convey the freedom and angst of youth culture in photographs, what made her get in front of the lens with her nude self portrait project, what it was like being in a metal band with professional skateboarder Ethan Fowler, and what keeps her driven to always be moving forward.  So enjoy this fun conversation with Magdalena Wosinska.

On this episode of the podcast we are joined by adventure sports and travel photographer and filmmaker Krystle Wright.  Recently featured on the other side of the camera on Netflix's original series "Tales by Light", Krystle tells us what it's really like to chase a shot, and the misery involved when it sometimes fails.  She's become a gypsy in her own right, sometimes living out of her car and on other people's couches as she constantly stays on the move and travels from one country to another in search of the next adventure.  During our conversation, she opens up about the pitfalls of that existence and how hard it is to be a solo female always showing up in new locations and trying to carve out a living in a male dominated field.  Although an Australian by birth, Krystle spends a ton of time in the US and has made a name for herself with her beautifully crafted images of rock climbing, free diving, base jumping, skiing, and every other action sport she can get the chance to put her camera in front of.  Throughout our talk, we had the opportunity to chat about how she grew up, when the camera made it's way into her life, her early mentors in photography, and some of the first jobs that would provide the stepping stones of building a photography career that would include some amazing editorial assignments and sponsors from some of the biggest brands in the business.  Although she's still fairly recent to the motion world, she has been a part of multiple filmmaking opportunities and recently debuted her newest film "Where the Wild Things Play" at the Five Points Film Festival.  So sit back and enjoy what Krystle has to say about the trials and tribulations of becoming an adventure photographer, some of the tired stereotypes of female athletes that she is trying to help change with her latest project, and the advice she gives to others setting out on the road with a dream to travel and shoot.

This week on the show we had the honor of sitting down with renowned fine art photographer, documentarian, and true student of time and light, Stephen Wilkes.  Many of you might know Stephen from his beautifully produced series "Day to Night" which he is still traveling the world working on now and has broken the boundaries of how much time you can capture in a single photograph.  That being said, Stephen has had a very storied career that dates back to his early teens and spans an impressive body of work and a list of clients that include some of the most respected curators of photography there are.  As you look through some of his earlier street photography, documentary work, and fine art photographs, you can really understand how it all culminates into the current experiment and study of time, light, place, and human existence that "Day to Night" is.  At age 12 Stephen first started taking pictures, and it wasn't long before he was diving head first into the art form and the business of photography.  But it was a trip to the Met that would really change his life, and the paintings there would become some of his greatest influences.  He would go on to study photography in college and work with some amazing mentors like Jay Maisel, and slowly find his own voice in his work.  During our conversation we get the chance to talk about what he has learned from his constant observation of time, and our relationship to it as we get older.  We talk about what keeps him inspired to keep creating and the passion you need for the work you do, and he gives parting words of wisdom to our listeners.  But mostly, we talk about humanity, and what he has learned from years of watching. So enjoy this inspiring conversation with Stephen Wilkes.
