Ed Templeton joins the podcast to talk about his latest photography book "Tangentially Parenthetical" (link below) and how he from being one of the most influential street skaters of his generation to showcasing his paintings and photography in highly respected galleries and collections.  Although Ed's story has been told many times in some great interviews and documentaries, I get the chance to trace his history of growing up in Orange County in a fairly tough family situation and how that eventually led him to skateboarding.  For those who aren't familiar with Ed Templeton, his influence to the world of skateboarding is undeniable and in 2016 he was inducted into the skateboarding hall of fame.  But this conversation dives into how his skate career led him into the world of painting and photography and some of the early relationships with people like Aaron Rose and Alleged Gallery that would help push him into the national spotlight as an artist.  During our talk I get the chance to ask Ed what attracts him so much to the daily habit of street photography and constantly chasing another image, what he's learned about the human condition after years of closely observing others, what it is about skateboarding that leads so many to a creative life, and the advice he gives to those out there chasing their own dreams of living creatively. So sit back and enjoy this conversation with one of the most requested guests I've had.

Lifestyle and portrait photographer Samuel Elkins joins the show to talk about how, at the age of 22, he's already had years of professional experience shooting for some of the biggest companies in the country and what's next for him as he continues to evolve as an artist and a brand. Sam grew up outside of Seattle Washington.  As someone who is now 6'8, he was always one of the tallest kids in his class and naturally moved towards a love of basketball.  But at the age of 15 he would stumble into photography and by his senior year of high school would quit basketball to put all of his focus on his newest passion.  With opportunities to intern with a local wedding photography business, and using Instagram to meet up with others who shared his love for photography, he quickly began to develop his craft.  Using the pacific Northwest as his backdrop, his aesthetic became a somewhat washed out and high contrast look that earned him a big social media following and soon had companies calling to work with him.  After high school he decided to forgo an art school education and chase his dreams on his own, moving to Portland where things quickly began ramping up with his business.  During our conversation with talk about the motivation and hustle that went into such early success as a photographer and influencer, the aesthetic of the pacific northwest and other areas known for a certain look, surrounding himself with other positive creative people to feed off of, and the advice he gives to others who reach out to him wanting to be the next young success.

Stuart Palley joins the podcast to talk about how he went from a degree in business and finance to chasing some of the biggest wildfires in the history of California and creating beautiful images in the midst of chaos with his project and book "Terra Flamma".  Over the last couple of years Stuart has received a lot of press and recognition for his outstanding wildfire work and we sit down to talk about how it all got started and his plans for the future.  Although Stuart always loved photography, he earned an undergrad degree in business and finance and began interning in the bank world during the tough financial times of 2009.  It was then that he would revaluate what he wanted from life and make the switch to a photojournalism post graduate education in Missouri.  During that time, on trips home to California, he became very interested in what was happening with the climate, and the fires that seemed to be increasing in intensity in his home state.  Combining his love for nighttime imagery and environmental awareness, Stuart created a body of work around wildfires that would bring awareness to him as a photographer.  During our conversation we talk about what inspired him to start taking long exposure images of wildfires early on in his career, the specific challenges and dangers of shooting wildfires, and the advice to those who think they want to be a part of it.
