Painter, Graphic Artist, and Element Skateboard Brand Collaborator Chad Eaton, better known to many by one of his more popular art personas "Timber", joins the podcast to talk about how he went from a kid growing up in LA with a rough start on his early family years, to creating a successful art brand of his own as well as working for major clients all over the world.  Growing up in southern California in the early 90s, Chad was introduced to skateboarding at an early age and quickly fell in love with the freedom and since of belonging it provided for someone who usually felt on the outside.  Although Chad had always been a creative kid, and his mother was an artist herself, it was years later that he found his way back to the therapeutic practice of sketching, painting, and creating in general.  After a while he got the opportunity to create some branding for a skate shop that would end up leading him to some of his now famous characters and to the world of Timber the artist.  With the arrival of Etsy, he soon found himself in high demand for all of the apparel he was making and it would end up leading him to forming a long lasting relationship with the skateboard company Element.  During our conversation we talk about how Chad first created the world and all the characters that live in it he has become known for under the Timber moniker, what it's been like having such a long lasting and successful relationship with a skate brand like Element, the trips he's had all over the world creating murals and doing art tours, and the advice he gives to others who have big creative dreams.

Best selling author, photographer, video producer, and educator Marc Silber joins the show to talk about his latest book "Create: Tools from Seriously Talented People to Unleash Your Creative Life", and how he went from an artistic young kid with a camera hanging out around Heigh Ashbury in the late 60s, to the art institute of San Francisco, to teaching mountaineering, to spending years as a business consultant, to finally re-kindling his love of photography, filmmaking, and a creative way of living.  Marc grew up in the hills of Menlo Park, CA and was introduced to photography and the darkroom at a very early age.  During his high school years he had the opportunity to spend some time in Mexico with his Rolleiflex and created a body of work that still inspires him today and sent him on a path that would lead him to the art institute of San Francisco.  Although Marc was always drawn towards visual storytelling, he was also very drawn to the outdoors, and started teaching mountaineering at the National Outdoor Leadership School.  It would be those years of early leadership training that would soon lead him back to education in the creative fields he always loved.  During our conversation Marc tells me what inspired him to start his YouTube series "Advancing Your Photography" where he interviews some of the top photographers in the world, the daily tools and habits he uses to help him stay motivated, creative, and productive, what he's learned from long conversations with so many successful creatives, and the advice he gives to others struggling to fulfill their creative goals.

Award winning ski and action sports photographer Reuben Krabbe joins the podcast to talk about his most recent celestial ski photo and the newly released short film "Nebula" (links below) that traces his journey to capture a skier in front of the Orion Nebula, as well as take you inside some of the creative process on what it looks like to chase after such an elusive photograph. Growing up in Calgary, Rueben was always attracted to the mountains that were so close by and the lifestyle that went with them.  But when one of his friends got a hold of his Dad's SLR camera and they started taking pictures of each other on their ski and mountain bike adventures, Reuben began to dream about a future as an action sports photographer, and all the adventures that might entail.  Before long, after a short stint in photography school, he was living in a van in Whistler chasing that goal with a drive and work ethic that would soon enough pair him with the right athletes and companies to start making the images he had imagined.  After a while his imagination for a ski shot became a little more advantageous which would lead him to creating an image of a skier in front of the northern lights first, and then an even bigger project working with Salomon to try and capture an image of skiers in front of the solar eclipse which would lead to several awards, recognition from the industry, and another short film about the process.  With the film Nebula, Reuben sets out to capture what he says is the third and final image of a series of celestial events.  During our conversation Reuben tells me what's it like to try and work around getting pigeon holed as the guy who shoots ski images in front of celestial events, how he manages to stay relevant in such a saturated niche of the industry, the way he goes about visualizing and organizing personal projects, and the advice he gives to others coming up in the world of action sports photography.
