When Mike Blabac was called upon to be the photographer to document Danny Way jumping his skateboard over The Great Wall of China, there was no doubt in his mind that he had what it took to get the right shot.  He had literally prepared most of his life for this type of pressure. From the ripe old age of 11 years old, Blabac was shooting with his first DSLR camera and developing his own photos in the darkroom.   The only passion that was bigger, and more time consuming, was his love of skateboarding.  At age 20, Blabac moved out to San Francisco to pursue skateboarding.  Before long his two passions finally intersected, and he found himself shooting photos for some of the sponsored skateboarders he was hanging out with.  The rest, as they say, is history.  He would go on to become the head photographer for DC Shoe Company and have his fingerprints on some of the most iconic skate and action sports photos in the last 20 years.  He has worked with some of the biggest names in actions sports, as well getting the opportunity to produce commercial work for a "whose who" roster of corporate clients.  Through all of it, Blabac has kept a very humble attitude, and continues to have a deep love for photography and the access to interesting people and great adventures that it provides.

Although Nick Rosen isn't quite sure how much he remembers of his earliest years of life as the son of "Back to the Land" hippies on a rural commune style farm in Quebec, there is no doubt that some of their radical ideas and behavior rubbed off on him and helped shaped the idealistic foundation that would have Nick traveling the world looking for a revolution of his own.  Nick tells us about living with the Zapatistas in Mexico, about seeing the world trade center go down from the apartment he was living in, about sailing with friends and rock climbing in different areas around the world, and about finally re-uniting with his long time friend Pete Mortimer to help build what would become Sender Films.  After years of writing, Nick would become a very integral part of the storytelling side of things of a film company that was quickly earning respect.  Nick helped to craft character development and story arcs as they documented the climbing world around them, which you can see a great example of in their more recent and acclaimed film "Valley Uprising" that explores the history of rock climbing in the Yosemite Valley through a host of characters both past and present.

Photographers and Fellow Podcasters Jose Rosado and Stevie Chris have a lot to say when it comes to the younger generation, the lackluster job market, and trying to carve out a spot in the world of photography in an ever growing sea of content.  After failed attempts at trying to sustain a career path, or in Stevie's case, growing road weary after years in a hard core band, they both decided to re-emmerse themselves in the world of photography and to start their own podcast "The Angry Millennial Show".   We talk about some of the trials and tribulations of coming up in the current state of the industry, how to stay current and keep creative with so much competition, and even have the chance to talk a little "inside baseball" on podcasting and being inspired by the people on our shows.

Upon first look at the very impressive body of work from Commercial Director and Photographer Sinuhe Xavier, it's hard to believe that he didn't even pursue a career in directing films until 2003.  He is a self taught photographer and filmmaker with a huge roster of clients like Ford, Toyota, Gillette, and many others.  After years on the other side of the lens as a proffesional skier for the North Face team, and a couple of attempts at normal jobs, Sinuhe picked up a camera and started down the path that would lead him to what most would call a successful career and a growing list of high profile clients.  Sinuhe tells the story of growing up in Bozeman, Montana, having a big half pipe in his yard that would become the local hot spot and even attract Tony Hawk to come skate it, and traveling the world as an athlete for The North Face.  Sinuhe has gone on to direct a big list of commercial spots, worked on more personal documentary films, and traveled through Columbia on a motorcycle. He is recently back from Alaska after directing a short film for the new Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro, and has an inspiring story of someone who had the right determination to make it in an industry that doesn't let many in.

If you were lucky enough to get to see the recently released documentary film "Valley Uprising" about the history of climbing in the Yosemite Valley, broadcast on The Discovery Channel and now available online, than you are already aware of Producer/Filmmaker and President of Sender Films Pete Mortimer.   This week we get the chance to sit down with Pete in his Boulder Studio and hear about growing up in Colorado in the 70s and 80s and his early foray into rock climbing and making funny videos with his friends during his high school years.  After graduating from Colorado College, which seems to be producing some of worlds top climbers, photographers, and filmmakers, Pete set out on a journey that would have him in New York for several years, Film School in California, and adventures all over the globe, before he would finally settle back in Boulder to try and carve out his own place in the world of adventure film companies.  Many films and many years later, Pete has succeeded in making a name for himself in the world of documentary film making with his company Sender Films and his own film tour "The Reel Rock Film Festival".  Enjoy this conversation with someone who proves that you can create a company on your own terms.......

Photographer, Director, and Canon Explorer of Light, Tyler Stableford sits down with us to tell us about growing up as a mountain kid in Vermont and his early days of wanting to be a writer.  After attempts at incorporating pictures into some of his stories, Tyler became fascinated with photography and started down the path that would end up having Men's Journal Magazine name him "One of the Seven Greatest Adventure Photographers", as well as becoming one of Canon's prestigious "Explores of Light".  He's had the chance to work with clients all over the world and has created a signature commercial look, all the while continuing to pursue personal work in the form of documentary films and helping out with NGOs.  So sit back and enjoy Tyler's story.

We get a chance to sit down with photographer, filmmaker, and athlete Cory Richards (Named National Geographic Explorer of the Year in 2012) and talk about growing up the son of a Ski Patroller in Salt Lake City Utah and his early days exploring the mountains.  We learn about Cory's somewhat troubled youth that led him to dropping out of high school at an early age and his first experiences as an alpinist that would inevitably lead him further into the mountains and towards becoming a sponsored climber.  As he continued traveling and climbing, Cory found himself with camera in hand and began work on what would become an already storied career exploring the globe and shooting for some of the most respected publications in the world.  This is definitely an inspiring conversation that you don't want to miss.........

Adventure Lifestyle and Commercial Photographer and Filmmaker David Clifford sits down with us to talk about growing up outside of Boston, studying photography in college, dropping out and becoming a ski bum, and his early hustle in the photography industry.  He did his time in his younger years working for others as he tried getting his foot in the door, but ended up being a gatekeeper himself as the photo editor of national publications Rock & Ice Magazine and Trail Runner Magazine.  During his time as an editor, he had the opportunity to work with, and mentor, others that would become world renowned shooters in their own right.  He has since gone on to re-focus his energy on his own career as a freelance shooter and has worked for some big clients shooting all over the world.
