Director, cinematographer, photographer, and friend of the show Zach Wolfe returns to talk about what's going on in the creative world of Atlanta, the changes he's experienced with the commercial filmmaking scene and the budgets they bring, his thoughts on smaller camera systems vs the Red and Arri cinema setups, how we both feel about marketing ourselves and where agents stand in that dynamic, and how to continue to set yourself apart in an ever-growing world of creatives.  Make sure to check out Zach's original episode (#85) to hear his amazing backstory of covering the rise of much of the Atlanta hip hop scene and how that grew into the career he has today.

Volcom staff snowboard photographer and professional vagabond Vernon Deck joins the podcast to talk how he went from a kid growing up in a small town in New Zealand within the confines of a strict religious community, to traveling the globe, discovering photography, and creating a unique mark of his own on the world of snowboarding.  Although Vernon had an idyllic childhood for the most part, he tragically lost his father at the age of 16 and it changed the direction of his life forever.  He soon found himself backpacking through Australia and Europe trying to figure out what was next when he stumbled across photography.  At first it was just a means to document his life and travels, but when he decided to go check out a snowboarding event in Switzerland, he realized he had found his calling.  Before long Vernon was making a name for himself as a snowboard photographer and was offered a staff position with Volcom.  Since then he has spent the last 14 years traveling the globe, chasing winter, and capturing the sport and culture of snowboarding not only for Volcom, but for other top publications and brands in the industry.  During our conversation Vernon tells me what it's like to be a team photographer in today's constant need of new content, how he found sailing and decided to start taking months off of shooting every year to travel the world by himself on a sailboat, and the advice he gives to others trying to chase their own adventures in life

Ray Barbee is not only one of the most influential street skateboarders in history, he's an amazing photographer, musician, and creative thinker, as well as one of the most frequently requested guests I get from fans of the show.  As a young kid growing up in the 80's in San Jose, CA, Ray was introduced to skateboarding during the heyday of backyard ramps and the vert skating kings that had ruled the era.  But before long, street skating started to take hold and Ray found a more accessible form of skateboarding that he and his friends felt they could mold with their own style.  Ray was quickly noticed by one of the biggest names in the business and joined the legendary Powell Peralta team and started working closely with Stacy Peralta and some of his skateboard heroes.  The rest is history, and he would go on to to have an amazing career as a professional skater that continues to this day.  During those years of traveling the globe, Ray realized he was missing an opportunity to capture the life he was living and embraced the craft of photography, spurred on by so many of his photographer friends he knew through the skate world.  During our conversation we talk about what it was like to tour the world as a professional skateboarder, his early influences in photography, what made him embrace the Leica M6 and black and white film, what it's been like having a relationship with such a legendary camera brand, and the advice he gives to others who yearn for a more creative existence.

Brady and Alex take a break from sailing adventures on the SV Delos to join the podcast and talk about what life looks like living on a ship and what all goes into creating a YouTube show and producing original content while in the middle of the ocean. Although Brady and his older brother Brian are 10 years apart in age and didn't spend that much time together growing up, when Brian made the decision to quit his job, buy a boat and sail the world, it would end up bringing them closer than they could ever imagine and grow into a YouTube sensation with a fan base all over the world.  Part of the tradition on the boat has been bringing on fans who want to sail and work, and one of those adventurous souls was Alex Blue, who was no stranger to living on ships, and brought a wealth of knowledge of photography and filmmaking.  Before long, Brady and Alex became inseparable and these days they make up the four person main crew along with Brian and his wife Karin.  During our conversation we talk about how the Delos and the YouTube show came into existence, what it's like being out at sea disconnected from so much of the rest of the world for long periods of time, what it looks like to create each episode, and the advice they give to others looking for a life of adventure and creativity.

Award winning photography team Ben and Erin Chrisman join the podcast to talk about how they met at a friend's wedding, making the move to San Fransisco, the creation of Chrisman studios that has consistently been named as one of the top 10 wedding photography studios in the world, and their most recent move to Charleston, South Carolina to focus on their newest endeavor King and Fields studio and their 3 year old daughter.  Ben and Erin both come from the world of photojournalism and were heavily influenced by some of the greats.  After establishing themselves individually as wedding photographers they ended up coming together and forming a powerful creative team around the idea of not only applying a photojournalistic style of shooting, but of not being afraid to embrace weirder and more artistic compositions.  They quickly rose to become a very prominent studio, shooting huge destination weddings all over the world, but soon realized that they would love to be able to settle down more and shoot from a home base.  During our conversation we talk about the early days in Northern California and their house in Oakland that served as a creative hang out for so many other photographers, what it was like shooting weddings in some of the most unique locations in the world, and what inspired them to want to move back to the south and create a portrait photography studio.
