    Living a life measured by experiences, & choosing the lifestyle you want w/ Seth K. Hughes

    Living a life measured by experiences, & choosing the lifestyle you want w/ Seth K. Hughes

    Seth K Hughes is a photographer, filmmaker, and adventurer based out of his Airstream, yep, another nomad. Seth has been a friend of mine for several years now and he is such an awesome creative. We talk about Seth's path to where he is now, going to school for photography, and finding himself in a commercial photography 9-5 that sucked the life out of him. And finally how he planned his transition to being a nomad. This one is filled to the brim with useful information on navigating the freelance photography industry, the advantages to getting your drone pilots license, and what to expect as a traveling freelancer. I love Seth and there is no doubt in my mind that you will too!Links:Seth K Hughes on Instagram | Seth K Hughes on Twitter | sethkhughes.comTony Northrup Part 107 Study Guide for Drone Pilots | The War of Art book | Remote Pilot AppBryan on Instagram | Bryan on TwitterFor the latest updates on the show, follow We The Creators on instagram!

    Building products, storytelling, & why creativity is hard w/ Luke Beard

    Building products, storytelling, & why creativity is hard w/ Luke Beard

    Luke Beard is a product designer, photographer, and creative director for Exposure, a platform for photographers and visual storytellers. Luke has an awesome story about finding photography and utilizing it as a creative outlet apart from his work in the software design world which in his words "is never finished". He never set out to be an entrepreneur but has found himself in this position and from my perspective is absolutely killing it. It was an absolute awesome chat with someone that has an amazing brain for tech, business, and creativity. Links:Luke Beard on Instagram | Luke Beard on Twitter | Luke's Site | Luke's old site@Junebugkim on instagram | producthunt.comBryan on Instagram | Bryan on TwitterFor the latest updates on the show, follow We The Creators on instagram!

    The strategy of design, working for a distributed company, & IR photography w/ Jeff Golenski

    The strategy of design, working for a distributed company, & IR photography w/ Jeff Golenski

    Jeff Golenski is a UX designer & project lead at Automattic (makers of WordPress.com, Tumblr, Jetpack, WooCommerce and more). It is a fully distributed company (which means no centralized office) which in and of itself could have easily been the entire episode. I start off the show talking about my forays into the world of medium format film photography and where I see myself headed on that front. Jeff and I didn't know each other at all before we chatted on this episode. But we talk about a lot of different things; from design and what Jeff does from day to day, to IR photography, astrophotography, travel and the importance of subjecting yourself to other cultures. He was super cool and easy to talk to and my favorite kind of podcast guest.Links:Jeff Golenski on Instagram | Jeff Golenski on Twitter | Jeff's Blog | designtactician.comCreating a Photograph vs. Taking a PhotographBryan on Instagram | Bryan on TwitterFor the latest updates on the show, follow We The Creators on instagram!

    Transitioning into a new life, minimalism, and the future of cameras & tech with David Imel

    Transitioning into a new life, minimalism, and the future of cameras & tech with David Imel

    David Imel is a tech journalist and photographer currently living in New York City. He and I linked up during my last trip to NYC and we ended up having a conversation that SHOULD have been recorded for a podcast, but neither of us were really thinking about it. What I love about David is that he has both feet in the world of technology and phones, but he is also a photography nerd. So getting to pick his brain about the independent worlds of Google, Apple, and the traditional photography industry as I see it was a real treat. We talk tech, minimalism, computational photography and what that means to the market, as well as David making the recent transition from a nomadic lifestyle for the past 2 years to having a place to call home in NYC. This episode is packed with goodies and I hope you dig it!Links:David Imel on Instagram | David Imel on Twitter | davidimel.comUsing Fujifilm for Tech JournalismBryan on Instagram | Bryan on TwitterFor the latest updates on the show, follow We The Creators on instagram!

    Collaboration, filmmaking, & transitioning to full time freelance with Corey Boland

    Collaboration, filmmaking, & transitioning to full time freelance with Corey Boland

    Corey Boland is a Director, Producer, Wedding Filmmaker, and Photographer in Detroit, MI. I've known Corey for about 3 years now and have seen firsthand his transition from having a full-time job as physical therapist and doing his creative stuff on the side, to being a full-time creative for the past 6 months. We chat as always about the importance of community, but Corey adds a unique spin to the conversation in that his work mostly involves collaborating with other creatives, something that I am not good at. Spoiler alert: he convinces me how beneficial that it can be. This might be the first episode that involves some Fujifilm talk, because well, they rule and I would be saying that even if I weren't an ambassador. All in all, I think there are SO many takeaways from this episode, Corey is a super intelligent and well-spoken dude that even manages to make me sound like I know what I'm talking about. All in favorite of me attempting to poach him to become my permanent co-host, say "I".Links:Corey Boland on Instagram | Real Weddings David Imel Bryan on Instagram | Bryan on TwitterFor the latest updates on the show, follow We The Creators on instagram!

Ant Pruitt ,

Outstanding Photographer and Podcaster

Minear's approach to this podcast is refreshing. He clearly loves the discussions and comes at it with an energy that's welcoming to all levels of photographers. No holds barred on discussion topics. Frank, honest and straight forward. Good stuff.

What I want from a podcastt.

Honestly, This is one of my favorite interview style podcasts. I know that Bryan may be new at this type of thing, but he allows the guests to feel open & relaxed because he is too.

Podcast is as enjoyable as Bryan is Talented

I’ve been connected with Bryan for some time through a company he used to work at and I really admire his photography. He has a such a creative and unusual eye for color and composition. Turns out, he has the same talent for podcasting. I love the guests he chooses, the questions he asks and the way he acts as a conduit to great conversations that I like to listen to while editing my own photos or riding the bus to an event or meeting. Great podcast, Bryan!
