Commercial director, filmmaker, photographer, and friend of the show, Sinuhe Xavier returns to make an in person appearance at the Visual Revolutionary studio and have a discussion about why he's made the decision to start splitting up his time in LA to a more personally satisfying existence in the mountains of Colorado, how he's been affected by the current commercial production regulations and protocols, and what he's been up to since we last spoke.  Make sure to check out Sinuhe's full biographical story way back on Episode #11, but during this conversation we talk about his return to a more personal approach to shooting photos, how he continues to stay relevant in an ever changing commercial industry, the changes the pandemic might bring to the way we shoot and where we are based out of, and the advice he gives to others out there trying to re-inspire themselves in uncertain times.

On this episode of the podcast, I'm joined by Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist and Getty images staff photographer Michael Santiago to talk about how he went from a kid growing up in the Dominican Republic with hard working parents to moving to the Bronx at age 7 and falling in love with art and literature, to finally finding photography and a passion for telling visual stories of the world that was around him.  During our conversation Michael tells me about the string of jobs in his 20s that finally lead him back to school where he ended up pursuing a Masters Degree and becoming a passionate photojournalist, the tragic story of Antwon Rose that he covered for the Pittsburgh Post Gazette and where he finally found his voice as an artist, why he made the move back to New York and started working with Getty Images, and the advice he gives to others trying to tell their own story.

An old Vail friend and amazing long time accomplished ski and adventure photographer Jeff Cricco joins the podcast to talk about his move to the mountain town of Vail in the early 90s, the string of resort and restaurant jobs that finally led him to chasing his love of photography, his longtime relationship with Powder Magazine and the unfortunate recent news that they are closing shop, and how he has remained relevant in the young man's game of chasing light in the backcountry for so many years.  During our conversation Jeff and I talk about the "good ole" days of ski resort towns like Vail, how a Grateful Dead show on McNichols arena in 94 ended up inspiring him with the resolve to be a full time photographer, the ups and downs of the life of a ski photographer, his time working as a guide in Alaska, what the future of the adventure photography industry might look like, and the advice he gives to others out there chasing their own dreams of capturing life in the mountains.

Advertising and fine art photographer/director, and friend of the show, Bo Bridges returns to make a very impromptu third appearance on the podcast and talk about his recent licensing deal with Marvel to produce a clothing line sold at Target, as well as all the challenges he has faced of being a world traveling photographer due to covid, and how he has continued to be creative in his approach to diversifying his work and his business relationships to be able to weather this storm.  During our conversation we talk about how he has continued to busy himself with personal projects during these challenging times and how some of them have already paid off monetarily, what the future of brick and mortar gallery spaces might look like, how he and his team tried to get creative in their marketing efforts to draw more people towards the prints sales side of the business, and the advice he gives to those in fear of what the future might hold.
