Episode 036 – What You Crave

In Episode by nnps1 Comment

There’s something about this episode that is making us really hungry. Maybe it has something to do with our first story involving a photographer and White Castle’s somewhat uncouth digital marketing team. But don’t you worry. White Castle ended up doing right by the photographer and we’re gonna talk about it, as well as our love for their sliders. Don’t …

In Episode by nnps2 Comments

Greetings, friends, and welcome to a new episode! It seems that several times a year, some new app or accessory comes out and makes us think whether mobile photography could actually be a viable alternative or—gasp—replacement for traditional cameras.

Episode 030 – Tuning Into Static

In Episode by nnps2 Comments

Let’s be honest with each other. A lot of what we call social media today has more to do with static than signal and it seems that it’s harder than ever for photographers who are working to “make it” online. Being a great photographer barely takes care of the cover charge to get into the club. Now, you’ve got a performance charge …
