Shut ter up ,

Thanks for teaching this old dog new tricks

I don’t usually take time to write reviews because I’m running from my son’s school, practices or his games and listening to Gina and Valerie in my car. They crack me up talking about their pets, kids, their honest mistakes, and exciting lifestyle. But then they seem to have a real, down to earth home life after a busy day or trip. A great mix of everything I need in my day, knowledge, humor, and honesty.

I started listening to the podcast over a year ago because I love to mess around taking action photos of my son’s games. The parents and kids always seem to love the photos and always ask when I will send out the next photos. Little do they know how long it takes to go through the hundreds of photos I take at every game lol.

I wanted to learn so much more about photography and how to edit but didn’t know anyone who could teach me. I’m a slow learner and haven’t had much luck in the past learning on line probably because I’m a bit older than the average High School student parent😝. But Gina has found a way to teach me (She is just talking to me right?) in a way I can always learn something new. I hate to admit it but I regularly listen to the same episode 2 to 3 times so I get a better understanding of the topics. I always have many other distractions in the car since my Golden doodle and Malta Poo love riding with me to my son’s school, games, or my daily McDonalds Diet Coke fix (I’m addicted). Because of these Podcasts I have improved immensely, but still very very amateur and I make tons of mistakes, but getting better everyday because Gina has taught me why “my mistake” happened. In spite of my lack of knowledge and creativity my improvement from listening to Gina and Valerie has caused me to now receive calls and texts quite often asking me to do team, Senior, family, and other photos. I still turn most all down because I don’t have the skill to do photos that are such important milestones and honestly sport action photos are my favorite.

I just want to thank you for making this enthusiast improve her photography as well as keeping me smiling as I learn. Please know you both are greatly appreciated.

Expanding my Knowledge and Worldview one Episode at a Time

This is my favorite podcast! Gina and Val have managed to capture my tiny attention span with their playful stories and plethora of information about photography and life in general. Having always lived in small town rural Pennsylvania in the States, it is amazing to be able to learn from experts who live on another continent and travel around the globe. Not only does it add to my photography knowledge, but also expands my worldview. I have especially enjoyed episodes like 200 and 228 - they are full of both photography and “down to earth” life tips.
I will continue to listen and soak it up! Thanks Gina and Val!

Great Podcast

I’ve never rated a podcast on iTunes before but this podcast is just so good! They don’t just answer surface level questions - Gina and Valerie really get into what you need to know. I didn’t find the podcast until recently so catching up on old episodes is literally all I do!
