On this episode I'm joined by executive producer/director, and one of the founding members of Matchstick Productions, Murray Wais to talk about their newest film "Huck Yeah" and how he went from a kid growing up in Seattle with a passion for skiing, to dreams of living in a van, chasing storms, and writing, to meeting up with his future business partner Steve Winter and forming one of the most cutting edge and respected ski film companies in the world.  As a kid growing up in the 80s in Seattle, Murray was introduced to the world of big mountains and heavy snow at a very early age.  He fell in love with the lifestyle and some of the characters coming out of the brand new world of snowboarding.  After studying at a ski academy for a bit, he decided to pursue his love of writing at the University of Oregon journalisms school with dreams of one day following a similar path as some of his literary heroes like Jack Kerouac.  But a small detour to Crested Butte to cover a ski competition would set him on a whole new path and the rest is history.  During our conversation Murray tells me how things have changed over the years in the world of making ski and mountain bike movies, the current challenges they face in trying to put together a film tour in the world of Covid restrictions, and the advice he gives to young creatives coming up.

On this episode of the podcast I'm joined by respected music, sports, editorial, and cultural photographer and professor at Rochester Institute of Technology Clay Patrick McBride to talk about how he went from a kid playing in the woods of upstate New York, to living in the South of France studying art, to becoming a student at SVA, to building a huge body of work featuring some the most recognizable faces in the music industry and an amazing archive of the 90's hip hop scene.  Although Clay was surrounded by a lot of creativity from his older siblings and the music world that he was fascinated by, it wasn't until after several years of running wild in the streets of NYC before he realized he needed to channel his energy into something else.  Luckily someone came along and gave him enough validation that he had a creative side that he found a new passion, and the rest is history.  During our conversation Clay talks about what it was like trying to get his foot in the door of some of the biggest music magazines and record labels on the planet in the 90s, what it was like be on the stage in front of 80,000 fans with one of your favorite bands of all time, the mentors that helped him believe in his work and his dreams, and why he decided to become a teacher and give back to the world of photography that had given him so much.
