This week on the show I turn to the archives for another "Best Of" featuring 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, what keeps him inspired to keep creating, the passion you need for the work you do, and the advice he gives to others.  But mostly, we talk about humanity, and what he has learned from years of watching.

Portrait and lifestyle photographer, author, and teacher Chris Orwig joins the show to talk about searching for himself through the eyes of his subjects and how photography saved his life when he needed it most.  As a kid growing up in Northern California with an artist mom and a builder dad, Chris was exposed to a perfect balance of creativity and the legacy of a tangible structure.  Although it took him a while to find his own creative voice and how to express it, once photography came into his life he realized he had something to say.  The rest is history, and Chris has not only gone on to have a successful career as a photographer, but has acted as a teacher and a mentor to many photography students for years.  During out conversation Chris tells me how getting hit by a car ended up introducing him to photography, how he developed his style as a portrait photographer and how empathy and curiosity play into that practice, why he decided to become and teacher and a mentor, and the advice he gives to others, as well as himself, on trying to keep moving forward and staying creative.

Respected surf photographer and commercial shooter Todd Glaser joins the podcast to talk about how he went from growing up in Del Mar as a competitive body boarder and shooting pictures of his friends, to traveling all over the world chasing swell for Surfer Magazine and compiling an archive of some of the best wave riders in the world, including his long standing creative relationship with Kelly Slater.  After years of chasing waves as a sponsored body boarder, it felt like a natural transition for Todd as he started holding on to a water housing instead of a body board and learning how to compose beautiful water images of the world he was already very much a part of.  After furthering his education of photography at Brooks Institute, he was offered a staff position for Surfer and began what has already been an amazing career of surf photography.  During our conversation we talk about how he developed his style of shooting both from the water and the land to capture not only the action of surfing, but the lifestyle as well, what it's like to travel and work with one of the most respected and hardworking surfers of all time, his latest book and film project called "Proximity", how the world of surf photography has changed in the new social media landscape, and the advice he gives to others chasing their own creative goals.

Street & Documentary Photographer and Fujifilm Ambassador Suzanne Stein joins the podcast to talk about how she stumbled across photography later in life while traveling around Europe with her son and instantly fell in love with the medium and felt a true calling to shoot the people around her and sometimes the people who have been forgotten by the rest of society.  Growing up in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Suzanne had her share of hardships that isolated her in many ways, but helped strengthen her character and her determination in others.  After a car wreck left her near disabled in her 30s, she began to experiment with art while trying to physically recover.  She was drawn towards figurative art and began trying for find her way in the art world, but as a single mom it was hard to truly devote herself.  A while later, she found herself really fascinated with photography while traveling and witnessing the people and cultures around her.  The rest is history and she has devoted herself to the medium since.  During our conversation Suzanne talks about what attracted her to Skid Row during her earlier days behind the camera and the personal connection she feels with so many people who are otherwise overlooked, how she began to develop her own style of shooting, the challenges she faces as a woman in the competitive world of street photography, and the advice she gives to others following their own creative path.

Commercial, fine art, and editorial photographer Joseph Haeberle joins the show to talk about how he went from a kid growing up in rural Wyoming with a love of horses, to suddenly developing a thriving wedding photography business while still a teenager, then making the decision to walk away from it and focus his camera on the lifestyle and the people that he knew best, working with brands like Filson, Stetson, Wrangler, and many more.  Although Joseph was exposed to photography at a pretty early age and quickly became proficient enough with a camera to begin to make a pretty solid living as a wedding photographer, he wasn't satisfied with shooting something he wasn't passionate about.  After trying out city life in Seattle for a while with the idea he would become an outdoor adventure photographer, he found himself with the opportunity to work as a photographer on the professional rodeo circuit and ended up falling in love with all the things he recognized from his own roots of rural western culture.  During our conversation we talk about his recent work with the New York Times, why he continues to work as a ranch hand even though he has a thriving photography career, what it's like to work with heritage brands like Filson and Stetson, and the advice he gives to others to go and tell your unique story.

London based reportage and documentary photographer Arnhel De Serra joins the podcast to talk about how he went from a kid growing up in the country outside of Brighton with an affinity for guitar and Carlos Santana, to finding a camera in his hand and a desire to capture the world around him, shooting everything from the mundane to the magnificent.  Although photography began to help shape Arnhel's life in his college years and began to replace the guitar as his favorite creative outlet, it wasn't until he stumbled upon some books by photographers like Larry Clark and Robert Frank that he realized the true power of the medium and what he wanted to do with his life.  He has gone on to have a successful career, working with clients in the editorial and commercial worlds and developing a very unique style.  During our conversation we discuss his somewhat absurdist approach to documenting the world around him and the idea of comedy in the still image, what it's been like for him tying to translate his work to the commercial space, where he draws the most creative inspiration from, and the advice he gives to others trying to pursue a creative existence.

On this episode I'm joined by the head of Clarkson Creative and director of photography for NCAA photos Jamie Schwaberow to talk about how he went from a kid growing up in Ohio with a love of sports and dreams of becoming a journalist, to finding a camera in his hand and covering some of the biggest sporting events in the world.  From an early age Jamie was not only an athlete, but a true fan of the sports world he found himself competing in. When he wasn't playing baseball or basketball he spent a lot of time going through magazines like Sports Illustrated, which led him to the idea of studying journalism in college with the hopes of turning his passion into a career.  But it would  be a chance internship at the olympics in Atlanta that would eventually lead him to chasing a dream of becoming a sports photographer, and later on a meeting with a legendary shooter that would help steer his career into the success story it is today.  During our conversation Jamie tells me how he met Rich Clarkson and ended up taking over the Denver agency he founded, what it's like to be in charge of covering events and providing content for everything from March Madness to the Colorado Rockies season, how he goes about getting ready and organized to cover events, what he looks for in photographers and creatives when he is hiring, and the advice he gives to those out there trying to reach their own creative goals.
