Episode #25 of the Smartphone Photography Club podcast
In this episode, I share my experience recently reaching out to three of my favourite mobile photography educators. The first I reached out to was Dean Holland from Take Better Photos. When I first started Smartphone Photography Training, Dean was the only other person in Australia that I could find delivering in-person smartphone photography workshops. I loved the concepts that he was teaching, finding Joy and moments. Dean was also working (and continues to) with businesses to assist staff produce visual assets using their phone.
Next, I reached out to Shayne Mostyn, discovering his YouTube channel. It is amazing the power of video to discover and appreciate the training and delivery style of someone. I really appreciated the way Shayne breaks down those sometimes complex techniques into easy to follow steps. The combination of quality and consistency of his videos are second to none in smartphone photography tutorials. Shayne is producing some courses at the moment, which I cannot wait to see and share with you in the future.
Lastly, in the podcast, I talk about Greg McMillan. I discovered Greg 6 years ago as a co-host of The Tiny Shutter Podcast. It had already been going 4 years! Greg has started another podcast named iPhoneography Podcast. Listening to Greg interview other photographers and contribute to group conversations his passion and breadth of knowledge is obvious.
It was a pleasure to meet each of these guys on camera and in person. I am very thankful that they took the time to respond to me reaching out. It is so nice to be surrounded by people that share the same passion for mobile photography and supporting others in our communities.
I encourage you to reach out to people who inspire you in photography or some other area of your life and let them know. It is a lot of hard work and many, many unpaid hours to deliver consistent, new content. Maybe even hit their 'buy me a coffee' links to show your support in a unique and much-appreciated way.
