On this episode of the podcast I'm joined by filmmaker, photographer, YouTuber, and cycling culture enthusiast Terry Barentsen.  Many of you might know him from his "Hot Line" series on YouTube or his live streams from his bike on Twitch, but during our conversation we talk about the story that got him there and everything he's been up to in the world of commercial video production and his different streaming platforms.  From his early days growing up in the Bay Area with a love of skateboarding and BMX, to the years he spent enlisted in the Air Force, to finding his voice as a creator in Art School and finally in commercial production, Terry has covered some ground in the creative space.  But one thing has been consistent over the years, and that is his love of riding his bike.  That passion has translated into his work and helped garner him a following as well as different perspective from behind the camera.

Renowned photographer and frequent National Geographic contributor Robert Clark joins the podcast to talk about growing up in Hays Kansas and his early love of sports photography that would create a young determined photographer working his way through multiple newspapers on the way to an extremely storied career.  During our conversation Robert talks about how the opportunity to shoot a story on a high school football team in Odessa Texas early on in his career would end up becoming the best selling book by Buzz Bissinger titled Friday Night Lights and help him on his way to creating a name for himself. After moving to New York to pursue a better understanding of lighting and studio work, Robert began to find his place in the industry, working with everyone from Vanity Fair and Time to his long relationship with the Geographic.  Known for his versatility in shooting everything from beautiful still life imagery to photojournalistic storytelling, Robert has gone on to shoot over 50 stories for National Geographic, more magazine covers than you could keep track of, and continues to be inspired by not only his contemporaries, but the young talent he sees coming up.

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.

McInnis joins the podcast to talk about growing up in a small town in Oregon and his love of snowboarding, skateboarding, and later surfing, that would end up pushing him toward the goal of making a career capturing the moments surrounding him.  Moving into the Thanksgiving holiday here in the states, it's also a beautiful conversation about loss, adversity, and keeping a since of gratitude in the midst of it all.  During our conversation Mark talks about the tragic wildfire that recently burned down his house and all his belongings and his slow rebuilding of life after that, how losing both the amazing men that raised him taught him about chasing his dreams in life and being in the present moment, how he managed to build a career based around the ocean and lifestyle he loved so much, and the advice he gives to those out there trying to live their best lives.
