Episode 116 – There Are No Magic Bullets, The Photo System Reviewed, Listener Questions!

photography podcast

Okay, let me start by saying that we have no interest in attacking anyone’s character or bashing anyone personally. This is our best attempt at an objective, educational review of David Jay’s new “Photo System”. David Jay, among others, has been catching a lot of flack in our industry as of late. It seems like the masses are finally starting to question wether or not the people offering workshops and learning tools are qualified to do so. Listen as we walk through the “10 easy steps” in the system and discuss.

In this episode we also answer some great questions from listeners, Phil insults all of England and Jamie professes his love for smoothies.
