Music, celebrity, and lifestyle photographer Drew Gurian joins the podcast to talk about the evolution of his career and how he went from first assistant under Joe McNally, to building his own successful brand and client base as a photographer.  From an early age Drew was drawn to photography and music, and before long started combining his passions by shooting live shows he was attending as well as playing drums in a band.  While studying photography and graphic design, Drew got the chance to intern with famed music photographer Danny Clinch and then with Joe McNally.  After finishing his undergrad, he became Joe's first assistant and spent the next 5 years traveling the globe and learning the ins and outs of running a successful photography business and dealing with a demanding shooting schedule.  After years of working at what many would consider a dream job, Drew made the decision to finally go out on his own and quickly began making a name for himself shooting with musicians, celebrities, and other movers and shakers.  Currently based out of Brooklyn, New York, Drew talks about taking the leap of going out on his own, how he began to develop his personal aesthic, trying to stand out in the New York market, dealing with some of the challenges of celebrity shoots, and how he hopes to grow as a photographer and businessman.

Lifestyle, motorcycle, and automotive photographer Matthew Jones joins the podcast to talk about how he managed to create a recognizable aesthetic and grow a brand for himself by shooting what he was most passionate about.  He's become known for his editorial work with niche magazines like Iron and Air, as well as shooting big commercial projects with companies ranging from Harley Davidson to Infiniti USA. Growing up in Florida, Matt found photography at an early age through the world of skateboarding, but later in life it would help him escape some trouble he felt he was sinking into with a move to Georgia to study at Savanah College of Art and Design.  It was there that he would be begin to get a better grasp of photography and, against some of the advice of his professors, pursue the world of shooting automotive work.  After a quick whirlwind tour of the country with editorial jobs, a stint in LA, and a ton of well lit pictures of cars, Matt found the world of motorcycles and began to refine the overall look and feel of his work.  Since then, Matt has gone on to shoot commercial campaigns and editorial work and create a look that has set him apart in a very saturated world.  During our conversation we talk about how Matt sees his work continuing to evolve in the future, the love/hate relationship he has with social media, steps he takes on getting in the door with ad agencies and brands looking to hire the right photographer, and the advice he gives on shooting what you love.

Renowned photographer/director and Nikon ambassador Sandro Miller joins the podcast to talk about a storied career in photography and filmmaking, and the odds he overcame and sacrifices he made along the way to create a legendary body of work.  As a child growing up in Illinois, Sandro lost his father at the early age of four years old and was forced to grow up quicker than most and take on responsibilities that other kids didn't have to deal with.  Although this caused him to act out in many ways and start heading down a path that could have led him far away from where he is now, it was an early love of photography that would help keep him motivated to push forward towards a dream of one day joining the legendary names he looked up to.  After years of assisting, Sandro created a very successful product photography company based out of Chicago, but it would be what he did next that would shape the rest of his life.  Even with the heavy responsibilities of a single of parent, he walked away from a lucrative career to chase his passion of shooting people.  He would go on to be one of the most sought after photographers in the world, shooting A-list celebrities, musicians, social influencers, and continuing to produce an amazing body of personal work.  During our conversation we talk about continuing to constantly evolve and create as a photographer, what went into creating one of the most impressive personal photography projects ever with John Malkovich, how he transitioned into motion work, and the advice he gives to others who want to make a career out of photography.
