On this episode I'm joined by editorial and commercial photographer Yve Assad from her home in Nashville to talk about how she went from growing up in a small town in the south with a love of music and an interest in what was going on in the rest of the world, to studying photojournalism at the University of Georgia, to creating a thesis project based around the characters she found at a biker bar, to working for a small town paper, to finally chasing her dream of going out on her own and photographing the motorcycle culture she fell in love with in college.  During our conversion Yve talks about what it was like to travel the country for years photographing the world of flat track motorcycle racing, how that provided her the opportunity to work with brands like Harley Davidson and publications like Iron and Resin, the way she was able to transition into working in the advertising world with everyone from Filson to Ford, and the advice she gives to others out there chasing their own creative dreams.

Photographer, custom jewelry maker, graphic designer, and all around curious creative individual Steve West joins the show to talk about his journey from Asheville, NC, to the Navy, to corporate designer, to creating the successful jewelry company "Silver Piston", to forming a friendship and photography relationship with Killer Mike from Run the Jewels and falling in love with portrait photography and a new calling in life.  During our conversation, Steve talks about constantly seeking creative fulfillment through the career path of graphic design in his early years, but realizing that it would be personal projects that would not only scratch that itch, but end up changing his life's goals all together.  We also talk about how a 52 year old white guy, with no preexisting knowledge of trap music, suddenly became a sought after photographer for some of Atlanta's rising hip hop talent and found himself frequenting Killer Mike's barbershop and running in circles that would open all kinds of creative doors for him if he was willing to do the work.

Award winning photographer/director Joey Lawrence (aka Joey L.) joins the show to talk about how he went from photographing his musician friends in high school, to shooting portraits of celebrities like Robert De Niro and Jennifer Lawrence, to traveling the globe extensively in the pursuit of some of the most ambitious personal projects ever discussed on this podcast.  Although he's now old enough to not be the youngest person on his sets anymore, Joey L. is still a young face in the industry, but at age 30 his portfolio is packed with work most older veterans could only dream of. Over the years he has continued to hone his craft and blur the lines between his personal work and his commercial projects, earning him coveted spots like the Lavazza calendar is 2016, previously shot by other top photographers like Annie Leibovitz and Mark Seliger.  Joey gives us an insiders look at what goes into creating his personal work, how he stays organized with his schedule, why he feels "burn out" is no longer an issue for him, and the advice he gives to those veterans out there that think the golden era of photography is over.

On this episode I'm joined by commercial, adventure, travel, and landscape photographer Lars Schneider to talk about how he went from an only child growing up in Hamburg Germany with an adventurous father and a love of nature, to traveling the world as a respected outdoor photographer, working with brands like Patagonia and now teaching his own workshops based around the nordic landscapes he loves.  During our conversation Lars tells stories about many of the bike touring adventures he took around the globe while still in his teens, his first published photos at age 15, the guidebooks he worked tirelessly on while trying to make a name for himself, how he went about creating commercial work while traveling with his now wife and creative partner, what's it's like to run your own workshops in the Faroe Islands, how he built a relationship with Hasselblad cameras, and the advice he gives to those following their own creative paths.
