Commercial photographer/director and co-founder of "A Collective Us" Kate Rolston joins the podcast from her Denver studio to talk about her journey from the advertising agency world of New York where she worked on campaigns for companies like Canon, to getting hired by Tyler Stableford and making the move to Colorado where she had the opportunity to be a creative partner on a lot of big commercial projects, to finally going out on her own and finding success in both the worlds of still and motion commercial and editorial work.  During our conversation Kate talks about growing up in New Jersey with an early love of creative expression, not only in the form of drawing and painting, but as a ballet dancer with the expression of movement and the discipline it offered.  After attending college in Boulder, CO she would pursue a career in the advertising world of New York City, but soon fell in love with her own creative pursuits which would eventually lead her all the way back to Colorado and create the career she is known for today.  Kate and I discuss her belief in herself as an artist and how that gave her the confidence to trust enough in her own vision to leave a secure creative job, what it's like as a new mom to try and balance a work life with a family life, how she pulls the most inspiration from taking long drives with the music on, having gratitude for clients that trust in you to help achieve their vision, and the advice she gives to others chasing their own creative goals.

Celebrity portrait photographer Jesse Dittmar joins the podcast from his New York studio to talk about his beautiful new coffee table book "Overexposed" (link in the show notes below), and how he went from a kid obsessing over photo books in Barnes and Noble, to assisting some of the most famous photographers in the world, to creating his own sought after aesthetic, and having the opportunity to focus his camera on some very recognizable faces.  During our conversation Jesse talks about what it was like growing up in the shadows of New York City as the son of a music agent that gave him a peak behind the curtain of celebrity, his early passion for music that would propel him towards a dream of one day becoming a musician himself, when he fell in love with photography, how he ended up assisting photographers like Annie Leibovitz and Martin Schoeller, and the gamble he took on himself to venture out on his own and find his voice in one of the most competitive niches that exists in photography today.  We also talk about what goes into creating a book like "Overexposed", how he's remained so in love with the process of photography, what he thinks the trick to longevity is, and the advice he gives to others chasing their own creative dreams.
