Snowboard and action sports photographer Scott Serfas comes back on the podcast to talk about the issues he has faced with clients not wanting to pay advertising rates for social media images, what that might mean for the future of his niche in photography, and where we go from here.  Make sure to check out Scott's original biographical episode to hear his backstory (Episode #36).  During this conversation we talk about what we've both seen with clients wanting to use images for free on their social media platforms, factoring in a future archive when you are shooting what is around you, and what the future of making a living as a snowboard photographer might look like.

Photographer and Creative Director Dano Pendygrasse joins the show to talk about a successful career as a snowboard photographer in what many would consider the golden age of snowboarding (the 90s and early 2000s), and his eventual transition into more of a creative director's role. Growing up in Vancouver as a skateboard kid and ski racer, the transition to snowboarding during the early years of the sport was a no-brainer. After graduating high school and moving to Whistler, Dano found himself at the center of a bourgeoning scene that would soon become one of the epicenters of the snowboard world. Although he had sponsors as a snowboarder and dreams of writing, Dano took the advice of an editor at Snowboarder Magazine to start taking pictures. He quickly realized that the camera was his tool of choice. He landed a job as a senior photographer for Snowboarder and before long found himself shooting with the biggest pros in the business. Over the next couple of decades Dano continued to thrive as a photographer in the snowboarding industry, but soon started to realize he was burning out and needed a new direction. We discuss that transition and what it's meant for his photography. During our conversation we not only get to trace Dano's career, but we get the chance to explore some of the history of the Whistler snowboarding scene in the 90s and the explosion of the snowboard business that he was very much a part of. We also talk about facing burn out, reinvigorating a love for photography, and making a new career transition in a later stage of your life.

Adventure sports, travel, and landscape photographer Michael Clark returns to the show to talk about gear and the future of photography that new technology might be leading us towards.  Although it's rare I ever bring up equipment on the podcast, I wanted to bring Michael back on to talk about the current state of photography gear because of his background in physics and his early career working with some of the tech that lead to where we are in digital photography today. During our conversation we discuss some of the positive and negative aspects of what is most likely on the radar and how that might effect the world of professional photography careers. Make sure to check out Michael's original biographical episode as well to hear his whole backstory (Episode #42)

Photographer, humanitarian, entrepreneur, and all around inspiring guy Jeremy Cowart joins the show this week to talk about a successful career as a celebrity and commercial photographer, what inspired him to step into the world of humanitarian work, and his newest endeavor of starting a chain of boutique hotels with a message of purpose.  Growing up in Nashville, Jeremy became an unfortunately common statistic of a child that was not operating well within the confines of the traditional educational system.  His grades suffered and he really didn't see a future in what others seemed to think was the right career trajectory.  He knew he loved art though, and with his parent's advice to maybe study graphic design, he pursued an education in design that would slowly lead him to finally picking up a camera.  After walking away from a design firm he had built to pursue photography full-time, Jeremy had a fairly quick rise to what many would call rock star status.  He has worked with some of biggest named celebrities in the world, was named by Huffington Post as The Most Influential Photographer on the Internet, recognized by Ad Week as 10 Visual Artist who are changing the way we see the world, and even nominated for an Emmy for best commercial campaign.  During our conversation we talk about stepping into your fears and chasing your dreams and goals, the practices he uses to avoid burn out, and the advice he gives to those coming in the current era of photography.

Legendary magnum photographer, teacher, and friend of the show David Alan Harvey returns to talk about not overlooking the surroundings of your own local environment while you wait to photograph dream destinations, dealing with gear acquisition syndrome aka G.A.S., and how he's managed to keep a child like wonderment of photography after all these years.  Make sure to check out David's original biographical conversation (episode #38 of the podcast) to hear the complete backstory of his career, which has remained one of the most popular episodes to date.  During this shorter conversation David continues to push the message of having something to say with your photography, sometimes simplifying your gear and getting out of your own way, and some of the common mistakes he sees younger photographers making.  Check out David's work at https://www.davidalanharvey.com
