show episodes
 
This podcast explores what it means to live a photographic life. What does it mean to be an artist who uses the medium of photography to express themselves artistically to the world. What subjects do we choose and why? How are we influenced by other photographers, art, and the world in general? You won't find any gear-talk, camera reviews, or Photoshop tips here, but rather, you'll find an exploration of our relationship to photography as we continue to refine our vision, our craft, and our art.
