On this episode of the podcast I'm joined by photographer, architect, designer, and all around content creator Demas Rusli to find out how he went from a kid growing up in Sydney Australia with a fascination for architecture, to picking up a camera, building a loyal instagram following, and shooting for some of the biggest brands in the world like Adidas, Samsung, and more, all the while maintaining a job as a working architect and designer.  It was a conversation I was looking forward to having about what the path of a young talented creative can look like in today's photography world.  Demas tells me what it was like to move from the place of his birth in Jakarta Indonesia to Sydney Australia at a very early age and how that affected his youth, his interests, and the path he would end up taking in life.  While chasing his dreams of becoming an architect, he was introduced to photography and fell in love with the medium and the idea of capturing the world the way he saw it. Although he didn't want to give up his new career in architecture and design, he was quickly building an audience on Instagram and before long companies began approaching him to shoot for them.  During our conversation he tells me what it's like juggling two creative careers, both of which he loves, and how they can sometimes play off each other.  We talk about digital manipulation and post production techniques that has brought photography into a new realm and whether or not it has crossed a line of still being photography or not, how he keeps from getting burned out, the way he stays organized, and the advice he gives to others hoping to fulfill their own creative goals.

On this episode of the Best of The Visual Revolutionary Podcast I sit down with renowned portrait photographer, illustrator, writer, and category defying creative, Dan Winters.  Although you might know Dan from his critically acclaimed portraits of iconic celebrities, musicians, and cultural influencers, he has built a reputation for his ability to capture a broad range of subjects, and has produced a dizzying amount of work across an array of genres.  Whether shooting the last shuttle launches for NASA or a portrait of the President, Dan has an ability to interpret the subject at hand with a very unique eye that has been influenced by years of curiosity. During our conversation we talk about how to properly show diversity in your portfolio, which images he remembers being milestones to his successful career, why he left LA for Austin, TX, and how he manages to juggle so many creative projects.

On this episode of The Best of The Visual Revolutionary Podcast I sit down with renowned photographer Glen E. Friedman.  To take a look through some of Friedman's archive is like stepping back into time and getting the chance to live through the subcultures he was there to bare witness to.  He created images that would help define a generation.  From the Dogtown Days of skateboarding with Tony Alva and Jay Adams, to the raw energy of punk with Black Flag and Minor Threat, to the early days of hip hop with the Beastie Boys and Run DMC, Friedman was there with a camera in hand.  The list of recognizable names and artists that he helped visually introduce to the world goes on and on and stands as a testament to his own taste in what he thought was important to photograph. During my conversation I get the chance to ask Friedman what he thinks the next youth movement will be, what it's like to work with some of the biggest names in music, and the advice he gives to others about following their passion.  So enjoy this conversation with Glen E. Friedman.

Director, cinematographer, and co-founder of the Video Production company OPNSZN, Caleb Seales joins the podcast right off the heels of the newest music video he had the chance to work on with Atlanta's own EarthGang featuring the song "Swivel".  As a young up and coming director, already with a who's who list of top musical artist he's worked with, Caleb tells me what it was like growing up in a small town in Georgia where no one seemed to look at creativity as a way out.  Although he had never given any thought to photography and filmmaking growing up, he decided to buy his first camera during college and it quickly became an obsession.  When he was given the opportunity to shoot Atlanta's A3C Festival, he jumped at the chance, and things started happening quickly for what would become Caleb's future career. During our conversation Caleb tells me how a camera first made it's way into his life, what having positive mentors has meant to his quick rise in an ever expanding career, what goes into creating music videos for artist like J Cole, EarthGang, Cantrell, and many more, and the advice he gives to other young up and coming artists like himself.
