    Oh hey. Hi. How are you guys? Us? Yeah we're good. Just been chatting to RAY BARBEE.


     


    This week we had the unbelievable fortune of getting to speak to a true legend. Skate hero, photographer and a beautiful soul. We talk gear, what drives him and his stripped back, no b******t approach to making images.


     


    It was a genuine honour to get to speak to this man. We hope you enjoy it!

    EPISODE 2: IT'S KYLE MCDOUGALL!

    When people think of cool guys with beards they might think of a young Oliver Reed or a group of pirates drinking rum and beating a villager to death. I'll tell you who we think of. A Canadian man with a passion for creativity and a heart of pure gold. 


     


    His name is Kyle McDougall, and he's on the podcast. 


     


    Kyle is a photographer, editor, DP, podcaster and YouTuber. 


     


    On this weeks episode we chat to Kyle about being true to yourself, enjoying the creative process and editing film.

So far so good but audio could be improved

First two episodes were interesting. Audio on episode 2 was really low so please address. I cranked the volume on my phone to hear and then became deaf after my phone rang and the ringer destroyed my eardrums.

Chris is a real, solid dude

Anything Chris says or has an opinion on us 100% genuine and I respect that a lot. If anyone needed a podcast it was this dude. Super excited for what’s to come!
