The One Plus Photo Contest Debacle, the Richest Man in the World's Beneath the Belt Area Pics (ya'll know what we mean), dealing with inclement weather, and incentivizing couples to do online reviews.
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.
This week the podcast was edited by Dustin. Please, direct all your comments about the editing directly to him.
Come experience the fresh hell that Dustin put me through this week. It's an entire episode with a focal point on gear talk. It's terrible. Or at least I think it is. In Dustin's words:
This week we cover all things lenses. From start to finish, how wide is too wide, how shallow is (steve) too shallow. You get it.
Dustin made his first unboxing video! He's opening a Greetabl gift that was sent to him by Steven Van Elk. The gift has a Leslie Knope print on the box and contains a stone shot glass.

Now you want those good, good photos of that Greetabl gift, and here they are straight from Dustin's camera:
This week we're using some quantum entanglement to record an episode with Thom Stewart and Greg Campbell, who just so happen to live in the future. Well, I mean, like 15 - 17 hours ahead of us. We're talking about Photoshop for the iPad, Yongnuo's Mirrorless Camera, Yongnuo Flashes, Godox Flashes, Shooting with Sony, and also expressing milk while shooting a wedding (something none of us are really qualified to talk about, but whatever).
