Brian Storm is one of the movers and shakers in both the fields of photojournalism and multimedia production. With my interest in combining still images with audio and video, it was a no-brainer that I had to interview this man. MediaStorm is Brian’s web-based, award-winning multimedia production house and agency that works with the world’s best visual storytellers to create cinematic narratives that speak to the heart of the human condition. MediaStorm has lifted the bar in this genre, in both what can be done and in how it is to be done. Brian and I talk about his vision for MediaStorm and how he made it happen. He also spoke quite candidly about the current state of multimedia and its future. Brian is not one to pull punches; he says it like he sees it. I know you will enjoy this interview with MediaStorm’s founder and photojournalist, Brian Storm.

A few weeks back Michael Clark and I got into a fight. It was a knock-down-drag-out kind of fight and the internet won all,  but the last round. Michael is patient man that allowed me to keep calling his home until we finally had decent line. Thank you Michael.

Not only is he a patient man, Michael Clark is an internationally published outdoor photographer specializing in adventure sports, travel, and landscape photography. His editorial and corporate clients include National Geographic, Sports Illustrated, Outside, Men’s Journal, Outdoor Photographer, Digital Photo Pro, pause…take a breath… Climbing, Nike, Nikon, Adobe, Patagonia, Pfizer and DuPont to name just a few. He has risked life and limb on a variety of assignments to bring back stunning images of rock climbers, mountaineers, kayakers, and mountain bikers pushing their sports to the limit in remote locations around the world. Michael and I spoke about his work as an adventurer photographer, how he got his start, and how he continues to be one of the most sought after photographers in the business.

We also talk at some length about his newsletter and how it has been a huge help at marketing himself and his work. After listening you might want to subscribe, you can find the link HERE. His blog (well worth the read!) is HERE and his portfolio can be found HERE. I hope you enjoy this interview.

Jeff Revell is a super nice guy and a talented photographer as well. When Jeff is not shooting his own work, he is managing a group of photographers, authoring books or leading photo walks. In fact, Jeff is the inspiration for the Scott Kelby’s World Wide Photo Walk. You might call Jeff the Photowalk Guru, others call him the Photowalk Pro. I caught up with Jeff at his home in DC. We chatted over Skype, I was on my fancy schmancy Blue Snowball mic and Jeff on his iPad. I was amazed at the clarity of the sound coming from his iPad, and with it just sitting on his dining table to boot! Check out Jeff’s gallery HERE. While you are there he has a whole host of tutorials that you can devour! You can find them HERE. Anyway, I am sure you will love this fun interview with Jeff Revell, the Photowalk Pro.

Meeting with Trey Ratcliff online for an interview was about as easy as pulling teeth. This guy is busy. I thought we would never make our schedules match. The irony is after a ton of emails, and a hand full of miss-connects over Skype; after finally getting the interview with him, then posting a blog post about his influence on my Creative Commons position – after all this; we ended up on the same flight from Narita (Tokyo, Japan) to SFO sitting about ten rolls apart. Strange world we live in. Trey Ratcliff is a huge name in the HDR (High Dynamic Range) community and blog Stuck in Customs is widely popular. Recently he published his first book with our good friends over at Peachpit Press titled “A World in HDR“. It is a 200 page coffee table book of his images with a HDR tutorial at the end. To be fare, I am not very knowledgeable about HDR, so I was not really sure what to expect from the interview. I soon found out Trey is yet another one of those “truly nice guy photographers”. We didn’t have long, this ran only 30 minutes in length, but very interesting. Trey knowledge about HDR is astounding and his joy for this medium is apparent. The guy literally sees the world in HDR. Take some time, listen to this his unique take on photography and life. Enjoy.

David Honl and I have been interacting via the net for many years. But as is common with net-based relationships, I have never met him face-to-face. It’s a strange world we live in. You’d think listening to this podcast we’d hung out with each other or shot together, but that is not the case. Maybe someday we will be in  the same place at the same time.

David Honl’s images have appeared in such publications as Newsweek, People Magazine, New York Times, Professional Photographer, and countless more. He has visited all the exciting places, you know, the places where flack jackets are the norm. In his other life, David is the originator & designer of the world-renowned line of HonlPhoto small flash accessories, and he continues to design and field test new products during his travels.

In this interview, David and I speak about his time in the field shooting as a journalist as well as his transition back to the US. We discusses how he came up with his lighting system, and how sites like PhotoShelter have helped him become more efficient with his clients.
