Award winning film and commercial director Jackson Tisi joins the podcast to tell the story of how he went from a kid growing up outside of Jackson Hole Wyoming with a devotion to competitive freestyle and big mountain skiing to studying filmmaking at NYU, to directing music videos with his creative friends, to working on advertising pieces for some of the biggest named brands in the country while also making beautiful documentary films.  During our conversation we talk about how he first got into filmmaking while chasing his younger brother around the mountain with a camera, his early love of New York street photography and how that inspired him to move to the city, how he made the transition into directing commercial and narrative pieces, where he draws the most visual creative inspiration, how he stays motivated in the competitive world of filmmaking, and the advice he gives to others trying to fulfill their own creative dreams.

Fashion and portrait photographer Mark Elzey joins the podcast to talk about how a kid from Bogalusa, Louisiana with an early love of art and music ended up in New York shooting for some of the most respected publications in the world.  During our conversation Mark talks about falling in love with photography the moment he held a friend's camera in high school, making the move to San Fransisco at an early age to study photography and how that shaped the way he would pursue his career, how he was able to overcome his shyness and approach strangers on the street to take their portrait, and the way he set about creating a name for himself at New York Fashion Week.  We also talk about where he draws the most creative inspiration from, the challenges that people of color can sometimes face in the photography and fashion industry, and the advice he gives to others coming up.

After a short break, the podcast returns with Season 5 and a conversation with the legendary photographer Albert Watson where we discuss how he built an iconic body of work consisting of over 100 covers of Vogue, as well as countless other top tier editorial covers, advertising jobs, world renowned gallery shows, and so much more.  From his beginnings in Edinburg, Scotland, to his early love of graphic design and then on to film school, to the move with his wife and children to Los Angeles in 1970 to begin creating a career that would eventually lead him to New York and have PDN call him one of the 20 most influential photographers of all time, we cover the story of his life and work.  During our conversation we discuss how Albert began to hone his craft and find his voice as an artist and how he has learned to trust that voice through years of shooting and a true dedication and passion to the craft.  We also talk about his latest book "Albert Watson : Creating Photographs", how he's managed to stay so motivated to keep creating after almost 50 years of nonstop shooting, and the advice he gives to others chasing their own creative dreams.
