    E14: The Audacity to Follow a Creative Life with Susan Currie

    E14: The Audacity to Follow a Creative Life with Susan Currie

    In this episode, I'm privileged to have a conversation with Susan Currie. She describes herself as a poet with a camera seeking a life lived quietly every day. She wakes up and reminded that there's something new to learn.
    We talk about becoming and taking your one for a walk. Susan is creative on many levels and she explores how she got there from being someone who felt like everybody else was more qualified to be creative, to be a photographer, and came to a space where now she's teaching other people how to find that within herself.
    This is a powerful conversation, and I hope you enjoy it.

    E13: "Hugged by the blur." with April Milani

    E13: "Hugged by the blur." with April Milani

    In this episode, I bring on April Milani. April is a photographer living in Madison, Alabama, who considers herself a visual opportunist. She is making ethereal portraits of children and unique, often haunting self-portraits.
    She's here to explore the idea of moving through fear. April and I explore family soul-searching because of family. Everything is changing our view of what perfection is, which is huge and relates back to Lensbaby, and a lot of our conversation is about the Lensbaby effect, not as a specific explanation of the tool, but how does it impact our artistic view of the world, how we see differently through it, and what was the end curve that April went through to make this work for her.
    So, let’s get started!

    E11: "What Would You Try If You Couldn't Fail?" with Dan Wampler

    E11: "What Would You Try If You Couldn't Fail?" with Dan Wampler

    In this episode, I talk to Dan Wampler, who is a digital artist with a passion for infrared photography he is the creative director for Life Pixel Infrared, a company that I have been inspired by and they have done amazing work helping us see a spectrum through our cameras that we don't normally see.
    Dan started teaching photography in the 80’s and now teaches online and workshops all over the world and I look forward to someday being part of one of those. I want to explore Dan’s journey, what brought him where he is at today, and some of those hurdles whether they had a little anticipation or terror involved and learning and trying new things.
    I hope you will love this conversation with Dan Wampler.

    E10: "Running Nikon Like a Scrappy Startup." with John Swainston

    E10: "Running Nikon Like a Scrappy Startup." with John Swainston

    In this episode, I talk to John Swainston. We talk about the philosophy of photography, about making pictures versus taking pictures and seeing the way the mind's eye sees.
    John talks about running Nikon Australia when he started it in the 80s, like a scrappy start-up having to reverse-engineer the product photography and the lighting setup that Nikon Japan used to reproduce his image and make images for his marketing.
    I want to share with you the Lensbaby mission statement and how that might impact and relate to John's career and journey as a photographer, a creative, and a father.
    I hope you will enjoy this conversation with Robert.

    E09: "Go, go, go, go! Try, try, try, try!" with Ute Reckhorn

    E09: "Go, go, go, go! Try, try, try, try!" with Ute Reckhorn

    In this episode, I talk to Ute Reckhorn. Ute is a photographer living in Los Angeles, California, making images full of spontaneity and life. She's here to explore the idea of Moving Through Fear with me. I feel privileged to hear the story behind so many photos I've seen over the years, not the specific story behind each of them, but the theme of pushing through fear and being motivated to overcome it and not be paralyzed by it.
    Ute pushes through many things for a lot longer than most people. And I think you're going to find some inspiration here of how you can take the failures that you have and the things that you look at that you thought are just not working, and maybe there's some more tenacity that you can bring to it that's inspired by this conversation that I have with Ute.
