Episode #27: Camera Functions

Got a message the other day wanting some of the camera functions explained. I wanted to go over all the buttons and basic functions of most prosumer cameras that are out there today but not only talk about what the functions are but how they work and also how they work together. By understanding these functions and their meaning you can use them to manipulate your image to achieve a certain look or feel. This is when you get to be creative.

Here are some things you need to know when going to find music for your next production. Don't forget to Rate and Review the podcast!


Episode #24: The difference between a Cameraman and a Producer

The fundamental question we all need to ask ourselves when we are in the field creating content, no matter what it is for, is are we a camera man, or are we a producer. There is a huge difference between the two. Trust me, you want to be a producer, not a cameraman. Listen in as I answer a listener question about how to get more out of his team that is out there filming. Long story short, it all starts with a purpose.


Episode #23: Photography with Chris Irwin

I have had several influences in my career but none stand out more as an awesome person and mentor like Chris Irwin. Chris was a staff photographer for Bass Pro Shops for over 26 years. He has been to more places and taken more pictures than most will in 10 lifetimes. He is a true veteran but even more than that, he is just a good dude. We got a little carried away and ended up talking a lot longer than we intended but I think it was worth it. Bare with us on this one because there are a...

Episode #19: "The Marketing Approach" with Andy Campbell of Diamondback Covers

As you know there are a ton of outdoor TV and web shows. All of these shows for the most part are trying to get sponsor dollars from the same handful of companies. These companies only have so much to go around. The hardest part sometimes for a new show is "what questions to ask" or "how do I approach a potential sponsor". For the marketing perspective I sit down with one of my favorite people in this business, Andy Campbell. Andy is the Marketing Director for Diamondback Covers and he is...


Episode #18: Self Filming with Casey Shoopman and THE... Tom James

It's show season and I am at the ATA Trade Show in Indianapolis. Its always fun to come to this show for me because these are my people.
