This week we're talking about some photography and videography criminals. There's the photographer who doesn't deliver wedding photos, the videographer who doesn't show up to weddings and sometimes delivers videos with footage from other weddings in the mix, and there's the drone footage from Yellowstone of a rollerblader that Skydio shared.
Unfortunately this week Dustin was unable to record, so we brought in Jennifer Van Elk to make that sweet, sweet magic happen. We talk about indecent proposals, Granny’s Red Rocket, Bride’s claiming that their photographer left them high and dry, beer that processes film, and couples that had to wait 50 years to get their wedding photos.
This week we were joined by Kari Bellamy and Marianne Chua of the Amazeballs Wedding Photography Podcast and the Chua and the Bell youtube channel. Marianne and Kari are both wedding photographers based out of London, in the UK. We talk with the two of them about their experiences working as wedding photographers and how they got started. We also talk with them a lot about Secret Cinema, Fujifilm cameras and Sony cameras... because we love to talk about mirrorless kits.
This week we’re joined by the crew from the I Don’t Give an F-Stop Podcast to talk about wedding photography, running small businesses, a little bit about their podcast and a lot about their relationships with each other. We talk a lot about styled shoots, the back end of producing a live video show that’s then turned into a podcast, working for Disney, what kind of man meat could make a girl break up with her boyfriend of 2 years at first sight, and some scary stuff like dealing with life threatening illnesses.
This episode has a few rants. We put a musical bed underneath them to make them a little more palatable for people who don’t like rants… but if you don’t like angry rants then you probably quit this show a long time ago. So, we’re both a little angry this week and flying off the handle. But it’s for a good cause. We just think photographers deserve to be treated well, and one of us especially thinks that photographers need to treat other photographers well. But before we get to those rants, we gotta talk about this new post-wedding fad. It’s called Mr. Rogering. It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Won’t you be our neighbors?
This week we’re diving deep into a bunch of news stories! Yeah! We’re talking about the Canon EOS RP, the Fujifilm X-T30, Nikon adding that eye autofocus to their cameras via a firmware update, the new no fly zones from DJI, the Cracker Barrel Wedding Couple, the Aquaman and Mera themed wedding, and the Better in Miniature pre-wedding photographer.
Detective Dustin is back on the case. This time he's investigating the case of the double dipping deposits and taking a look at a twin dilemma. We're also exploring the difference between a content creator and a creative, why it's so frustrating when clients ask to see a full gallery in the venue in which they are getting married, and whether or not you need to say if a photo is from a styled shoot as opposed to a real wedding.
This week Jimi Ferrara, super-host on the Wedding Photographer's Unite! podcast, joins us! We talk to Jimi about his switch from being a Camera Assistant for Saturday Night Live to being a full time photographer. Jimi talks about why he stopped working as a Camera Assistant for independent films. We also talk about Sony mirrorless cameras, Jimi's move away from Nikon, and how his wife Natalie started shooting with him.
We were joined this week by Lisa Mark and Rebecca Lozer of the Secret Life of Weddings Podcast. Settle in to hear about how Lisa and Rebecca got started doing photography and how they discovered their styles. Also, Lisa and Rebecca share the impetus behind why they started the Secret Life of Weddings. There’s a lot more in the episode so hit download and get ready to have a good time.
Steve and Dustin are still sick. Which means they're talking mattresses! What fun! There's a lot of talk about Casper, Purple, and GhostBed mattresses in this episode. We actually spend most of the episode talking about photography and specifically wedding photography, but we have a tiny tangent at the beginning.
We're joined this week by Heidi Thompson! A special guest so nice that she's been on the podcast twice! This week we're talking about formulating marketing plans for you business so you can minimize the amount of time you're spending on marketing while maximizing the effect your marketing has on potential clients. It's a good, good conversation even if we do get on some random tangents about potential businesses and insta-stories.
