On this episode of the podcast I'm joined by National Geographic photographer and adventurer Jody MacDonald where we talk about a life well lived, with so much more she still wants to experience.  From her early years as a Canadian growing up in Saudi  Arabia, to her days as a river guide in Alaska, to the tragic story of losing her boyfriend in a paragliding accident and being reminded of her own impermanence, to sailing around the world twice, to hopping trains in the Sahara Desert, we cover some of the many amazing adventures that are a recurring theme in her life.  During our conversation Jody talks about being open and present for where the adventure takes you and how that makes a more compelling photo and story in the long run, what it was like to circumnavigate the globe on a sailboat, how she fell in love with photography and how her career began to take off, the problems she sees with social media creating too much of the same, and the advice she gives to others out there wanting live out their own creative adventures.

Editorial and commercial photographer and host of The Photo Banter Podcast Alex Gagne joins the show to talk about growing up outside of Boston with a love of skateboarding and photography and how he chased that dream to California first before deciding to pursue an eduction in the medium at RIT and slowly start carving out a place for himself in the photo business.  During our conversation we talk about all the personal projects that he pursues and maintains and how that has helped him to never burn out on taking photos, what made him start his own podcast and what he's learned from talking to some of the legendary shooters he has had the opportunity to have on his show, what it's like dealing with the roller coaster ride that it can sometimes feel like in the professional photography business, and the advice he gives to others chasing their own dreams.
