    Exploding into the Wildlife Photography Scene with @tiffanytaxis

    Exploding into the Wildlife Photography Scene with @tiffanytaxis

    In this episode, Aaron and I are joined by Tiffany Taxis  (@tiffanytaxis) , a wildlife photographer and another Olympus shooter living in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Tiffany describes how her first art fair went and the criteria that went into selecting which pieces of artwork to exhibit. We also talk about putting yourself out there and establishing connections within the local photography community when you find yourself in a new part of the country.

    Aaron and I both agree that Tiffany's wildlife photography is one of the most explosive in quality that we've ever seen. If you scroll back on her instagram grid, one minute she has a typical looking grid, the next polar bears, bobcats, and coyotes are staring you in the face with a tremendous and thoughtful burst of artistic flare.  We both admire her work ethic and talent.

    A Learning Experience from a Client Shoot

    A Learning Experience from a Client Shoot

    After ten days away in Spain I'm back with Aaron to catch up, talk about a bit of my trip and see what Aaron has been up to.

    Aaron breaks down his most recent experience shooting for a travelling van company and his recap of the event is filled with useful information and lessons that we want listeners to use when working on commercial gigs. It's always better to learn from other people's mistakes than your own.

    Big shoutout to this week's #TPMartwork feature @johnnardacci with this beautiful "flowy" waterfall shot in Mass, USA! Getting the greens right in a photo is tricky and John nailed it. If you're listening on Spotify you're able to see his image. Because we have the Instagram launched, you can now also view all TPM features on our profile under the "TPMartwork" highlight icon. Be sure to check out more of John's work and keep submitting to the hashtag for your chance to have your image featured and talked about on a future episode!

    How to Find New & Exciting Things to Shoot Locally

    How to Find New & Exciting Things to Shoot Locally

    In this episode we tackle a question and topic from a listener of the show regarding how get excited and motivated to get out and shoot subjects in your local that may not be as thrilling as places like Yellowstone or Iceland. We dive into the importance of creating a photograph rather than simply using a gorgeous scene as a crutch. Lastly, we talk about the amount of genres of photography available to try and experiment with in places where location doesn't hinder your ability to capture content. 

    Big shoutout to this week's #TPMartwork feature @likelytowander with her awesome shot of a red Summer Tanager chowing on a dragonfly! This is a photo where her patience allowed her to catch the animal performing an interesting act. The animal's behaviour makes the photo, not the subject itself. If you're listening on Spotify you're able to see her image. Be sure to check out more of her work and keep submitting to the hashtag for your chance to have your image featured and talked about on a future episode!

    Defining Your Own Style of Photography and Editing with @britt.bosse

    Defining Your Own Style of Photography and Editing with @britt.bosse

    In this episode, Aaron and I are joined by Britt Bosse (@britt.bosse) , an animal and wildlife photographer who also happens to be Aaron's frequent shooting buddy on the east coast of the US.  In the first half of this episode we hear about Britt's vegan lifestyle. We found this was an important topic to talk about because it stirs up controversy and we want listeners to be exposed to all kinds of thoughts and opinions. We want to help redesign a world that both supports and challenges beliefs we may have and avoid living in an echo chamber of polarization.

    Britt's editing skills and style is unmatched. Aaron and I have yet to find someone who edits their photos anything like Britt does. Check out her Instagram or 500px to see what we're talking about. Notice in the episode how many different sources she is able to name off the cuff of where she was able to learn her editing techniques that she vouches helped form her stylistic approach.

    Empathy and Having the Best Relationship With Yourself

    Empathy and Having the Best Relationship With Yourself

    Today is a heavy episode. We start off the episode speaking on the tragedy that occurred in Uvalde, Texas where a school shooter murdered 19 innocent children and 2 adults. We share our thoughts surrounding this horrible and all too common tragedy.

    We transition the conversation into making room for empathy and reminding everyone to practice self care. We also talk about how everything in life is relationships, and that we need to be constantly learning and teaching the best ways to have healthy interactions. 

    There is no #TPMartwork for today's episode as it didn't feel right given the heavy content.

    Check out this link to the TEDx talk referenced at the end of the episode:

Such a great listen!

I am always looking forward to when this podcast comes out! This podcast covers so many different photography topics and really gives you some insight on how to have the right mindset for success. Even if your aren’t a photographer you should give this a listen. I have learned a great deal from this podcast on how to appreciate the little things and to really focus on what success is to me. Seth is such a great host, he keeps you engaged and I love that he has new guests on the show to tell their stories.

Highly recommend!!

Absolutely amazing!!!

I love this podcast! The way they dive into all these different topics, and are just so genuine about it all. It’s amazing to see that they truly have passion for creativity in photography and how they view things in life is just refreshing to hear. You feel like you’re just listening in on a chat between good buds rather than listening to a podcast, it’s really inviting, and so many things can be taken away from each episode and that’s just the most valuable thing about this! Good work, and big fan of your work Seth!
