Photographer, custom jewelry maker, graphic designer, and all around curious creative individual Steve West joins the show to talk about his journey from Asheville, NC, to the Navy, to corporate designer, to creating the successful jewelry company "Silver Piston", to forming a friendship and photography relationship with Killer Mike from Run the Jewels and falling in love with portrait photography and a new calling in life. During our conversation, Steve talks about constantly seeking creative fulfillment through the career path of graphic design in his early years, but realizing that it would be personal projects that would not only scratch that itch, but end up changing his life's goals all together. We also talk about how a 52 year old white guy, with no preexisting knowledge of trap music, suddenly became a sought after photographer for some of Atlanta's rising hip hop talent and found himself frequenting Killer Mike's barbershop and running in circles that would open all kinds of creative doors for him if he was willing to do the work.
