Commercial photographer, director, and all around curator of cool Magdalena Wosinska returns to the podcast to talk about the latest collaborative film from Monster Children that features her, some of the amazing work she does, and the small 1930s adobe home she spent 4 years restoring in the desert and now calls a personal getaway and new location for commercial production.  During our conversation we catch up on some of the amazing projects she has been a part of since we last talked, like the recent shoot she did with her friend Dave Grohl for the cover of his new book, the story she shot about the Lakota people of the Two Sprit community of Pine Ridge that finally found a home with a feature in The Guardian, her continued visual storytelling of her Mother and her Muse, the two new books she is currently working on, and how she has balanced these personal projects in the midst of a busy commercial schedule.

Photographer, Director, and DP Gabriel L'Heureux joins the podcast to talk about how he went from a kid growing up in DC making skateboard videos with his friends, to getting his foot in the door of the ski and snowboard industry as a filmmaker with companies like Matchstick Productions and Mack Dawg, to finally getting the opportunity to work with Burton where he fell in love with the still image and got the chance to start shooting advertising lifestyle campaigns with some of the biggest names in the sport and create a look that would transcend snowboard advertising and help him evolve as an overall creative.  During our conversation we talk about his long time relationship with Burton  and some of the amazing shoots he has been able to be a part of, what made him switch his focus from shooting 16mm film work to still photography and how that has come full circle in the days of photographers needing to produce all forms of visual content, some of the new projects he has worked on and the creative personal shoots he chased during Covid, and the advice he gives to those following their own artistic endeavors.

Celebrity and lifestyle photographer Jeff Lipsky joins the podcast to talk about how he went from working as a fly fishing guide in Telluride, CO and trying to see how many days a year he could snowboard, to shooting some of the most well known celebrities in the world and working on ad campaigns for companies like Verizon, Eddie Bauer, Warner Brothers, and many others.  Although Jeff was turned on to photography at a fairly early age, it would be his passion for skiing and snowboarding that would get him to move from the east coast to explore the rest of the country.  He fell in love with mountain life and spent 10 years in Telluride, CO until photography came calling again and he rekindled his passion for shooting.  Before long he moved to LA with big dreams and a drive to make it in the very competitive world of shooting fashion and celebrity work.  After putting in his time as an assistant with some of the most well known photographers of the time, he finally took the plunge to try and make it on his own, and the rest is history.  Jeff has gone to create an amazing body of work and has given back to the world of photography by teaching with groups like Sante Fe Workshops.  During our conversation we talk about the fear of putting yourself out there, the hustle and relationships required to make it in the world of photography, what it looks like behind the scenes of a big celebrity shoot, and the advice his gives to others who have big dreams in the creative world.

Photographer Joe Greer joins the podcast for a beautiful conversation about how he went from the tragic story of a young child losing his mother at age 4, to growing up with his adopted family in Florida with a love of sports and a passion for the community he found around the church, to chasing a possible future in ministry and studying at bible college, to suddenly having the direction of his life altered by getting an iPhone, downloading instagram, and falling in love with photography.  It's an incredible story of truly pursuing your calling.  During our talk we discuss how he began to develop his style and his voice in the world of photography, when he fell in love with film and the unique possibilities it offered, how he has continued to evolve and never get stuck in just one lane of creativity, the daily rituals that have helped him stay focused and feel more alive, how he is always seeking the right balance to work and life and the sometimes tough relationship he finds with social media, and the advice he gives to other photographers on a similar path.
