Photographer, musician, writer, and all around lover and teacher of the creative process, Reuben Radding joins the podcast to talk about his amazing journey from touring musician, to struggling novelist, to street and documentary photographer, and how his love of the practice has been his saving grace in a medium that can sometimes be overtaken by the pursuit of money and recognition.  During our conversation Reuben talks about his younger years growing up in the suburbs of DC as the son of two musicians, and the turmoil inside the home that would send him on a path away from the facade of everyday existence and into the music and art scene of the DC area.  After dropping out of high school at the age of 16 and starting to the tour the south with his band, Reuben ended up making the move to his now home of New York City in the 80s where he continued to pursue his passion for making music.  After a while, he decided he wanted to focus on his new love of writing, and ended up moving west to Montana and then on to Seattle, finally ending up back in New York and picking up a new creative outlet of photography which would soon overtake the others as the expression that most know him for today.  When he's not exhibiting his work across the country, or teaching workshops, you can find Reuben wandering the streets of his beloved NYC, continuing to focus on the practice, and as passionate about photography today as when he first picked up the camera.

Fine artist and commercial photographer/director Tim Tadder returns to the show to continue the conversation about AI generated artwork and what it could mean for the future of the creative community.  During our conversation Tim talks about what initially attracted him towards the technology and how he began implementing it into his own workflow, why it seems to lend itself better to certain artists' aesthetic, that there is nothing new about a disruptive style of artwork that changes the creative landscape, why he understands the fear and anxiety of photographers and artists and even their combative attitudes towards his own work, his willingness to put himself out there and hopefully educate some people on the creative potential of this tool, his upcoming gallery show in Miami that will feature AI generated work, and the fact that this technology has already found it's way into the commercial and fine art landscape and is most likely here to stay.

Photographer / Director Jacob Pritchard returns to the podcast as the first guest in a two part series discussing the controversial rise of AI generated artwork and what it could mean for the future of visual artists. During our conversation Jacob talks about some of his own experimentations with different software and the benefits of at least understanding the technology, his frustration with so many creatives who refuse to accept the reality that this is most likely here to stay, how it might be able to become another tool in the toolkit of artists, the conversations he is having with art directors and ad agencies on how this technology might work for them, and some of the photographers and artists who seem to have been able to incorporate it seamlessly into their own workflow and aesthetic.  We also talk about his deep dive into the world of instagram reels and how speaking to others on topics has inspired his own work and has helped him stay relevant in an ever changing industry.
