    One Hour Photo

    One Hour Photo

    It's spooky season, and, in this episode of The Nerdy Photographer Podcast, we take a look at a VERY creepy photography related movie, One Hour Photo. This 2002 Robin Williams film about a photo technician who becomes obsessed with a family takes us back to a time before digital cameras and phone cameras when many people were still getting film developed.
    I invited Josh from the For Nerds by Nerds Podcast to join me to take a look at this disturbing motion picture. We ponder how times have changed since this movie was released, both in the sense of how we as a society partake in photography and general societal norms. 
    There are definitely some things in this movie that would not play out the same way today.
    Want to listen along with our commentary? Rent or buy the movie from Amazon or you can currently stream on HBO MAX.

Fantastic content!

Casey really delivers with The Nerdy Photographer! I am by no means a photographer except for funsies with my phone. But he made me feel like even I could produce quality photos with his tips, tricks and suggestions.
He also opened my eyes to something I hadn't realized I was completely blind to, which is representation of non-white, non-supermodel figures in stock photos. As soon as he and his guest began discussing it, it was like one of those moments where your life flashes before your eyes. My mind flashed through photos I'd seen, and I could not pick out a face that wasn't an idealized white image. This is definitely a topic that deserves more attention.
And to top it all off, the sound quality is fantastic, and Casey has a smooth voice that is so easy to keep listening to. Definitely would recommend this podcast to anyone!
