With a slight (okay, substantial) delay, we are thrilled to finally bring you part one of the “Live at the Brick Factory” episode. This episode is audio only for the podcast feed but we will be posting video to the website shortly. In the first part we admit to some wedding blunders we’ve experienced, discuss how and why we watermark (or don’t watermark) our online images, and end with a great interview with Jared Bauman about pricing.

Part 2 will be released next week with our interview with Leeann Marie!

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

photography podcast

Play

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.
