Here I share my second podcast made of entirely from Anchor content. I cover such topics as approaching strangers, guidelines in art, experimental toaster bands, and photography internships. Enjoy!
Redd Photo Podcast
Here I talk about my return to Anchor. I have been having a fantastic time talking about photography and life on the platform. It has been pushing my creative buttons! Here are collection of my Anchors from the last 24 hours.
Here I break down some interesting photos. I touch on skater and music photography and the power of the expression. I also include pineapples because pineapples.
Here I talk about my recent tense experience driving home from Starbucks and then I break down some of my photos in an artistic manner.
Here I talk about the importance of being Yourself while facing opposition. I also share the importance of not being an idiot with Your drone. Enjoy!
Here I talk about why John Mayor music is an insane but genius contradiction. I then share about how art informs art and why You may want to follow some graphic designers.
Here I share my thoughts on if a silent song is indeed art, Instagram photos of feet in various 'hip' situations, and I metaphorically squeeze some high quality and potentially racist orange juice out of a few photos. Enjoy!
Here I begin with talking about two artists who grow grass into insanely detailed portraits using science. Whoa that's neat! Then I take a look at a few photos, some by me and some not, and squeeze out their value like one squeezes a lemon. Enjoy the lemon juice!
Here I have a lively conversation with street photographer and friend Michael Duke about interacting with the people we take photos of. We also touch on a few uncomfortable situations regarding a lack of clothing and language barriers.
Here street style photographer and good friend Will Crooks joins for a lively conversation about continuing to effectively evolve as a photographer while quickly devolving into waves of insane digression. As per usual.
Here we talk about an unfortunate event with a crocodile with a happier than expected ending. As well as some tips for more compelling compositions on the street.
Here I share my thoughts about "anchorless" photos. No these are not referring to photos without anchors in them. That would be a short podcast. I would be like "find an anchor". Could You imagine. No this is about photos without a sense of focus and purpose. These photos tend to fall into the basket of photos to scroll past. I talk about why I think that happens and how to overcome it if You want to have photos that are deeply engaging.
Here I talk about some effective ways to think about gear and why QVC is the devil.
Here I have a conversation with street photographer Michael Duke. We talk about how Michael grew his craft to what it is today and we discuss the power of street photography to create empathy. We also talk about Michael's dream to have a photo exhibition in a laundromat.
Here I have a lively conversation with photographer Katie Fenske. Katie shoots suburban landscapes and shares them to her Instagram profiles. One profile being only iPhone photos. She is rather prolific in her photography and she is very much driven by pure enjoyment of the craft.
In this first episode I say hello and rant about inspiration in the creative process. The process of creating is often perceived as a zen experience where You turn on Bon Iver and achieve a state of maximum consciousness. In reality that experience closer describes getting high and generating little output than actually creating something meaningful. While elements of that experience are welcome in a proper creative flow, without structure the creative process is little more than good vibes and if You're lucky an Instagram photo of a hipster riding a bike that You captured at the park because You happened to have Your camera and a long lens that day. Anyway, enjoy the podcast!
