Wow!!

I just listened to the podcast with Chris Orwig and I am blown away! There was so much incredible ’life’ material in this podcast. I know that I will have to listen to it again (probably a few more times) to unpack everything that I want to take away. I felt that the conversation was personal and connected on so many levels. I would love to sit at the table when the ‘coffee’ happens.

I have been really enjoying listening to all of Raymond’s podcasts. I love his approach to teaching photography through the different perspectives of successful photographers.
Raymond’s questions in the interviews are well thought through which makes the podcast very intriguing to listen to. I highly recommend this podcast!
