Episode 015 – Pretty. Ugly. and #AskNNPS

In Episode by nnps2 Comments

It’s sorta wild that we’ve made it to Episode 15! You could say we’ve quindecupled our episode output. In this episode, your hosts tackle a story recently shared on PetaPixel about a photographer who used a national home improvement store location as the set for a photo shoot. The results turned out beautiful but there were some larger questions about whether it …

Episode 014 – Hear Me Roar

In Episode by nnps1 Comment

Are you sitting down? No? Ok, we’ll give you a minute to find a suitable place to park yourself because Episode 14 is a powder keg. We’ve been wanting to cover the topic of women in photography since the first episode but we knew we wanted to have a particular person as a guest host. That person is none other …

Episode 013 – A Copyright Thief in the Night

In Episode by nnps5 Comments

It’s a good thing that Episode 13 isn’t airing on a Friday, eh? Get it? Because of Friday the… yeah. You get it. All jokes aside, we’re genuinely stupefied over our first story. A guy who uses someone’s copyright protected photo without licensing actually takes umbrage with the photographer for suing him—and winning. How do these things still happen in …

Episode 011 – “That” Big Fat Greek Wedding

In Episode by nnps2 Comments

I love the smell of a new episode in the morning. Our 11th installment kicks off with a good ol’, wholesome story of a newlywed couple whose NSFW stunt ruined wedding plans for a bunch of other couples. It’s another example of why we can’t have nice things (check out Episode 005 for more on that). Brian and Sharky clearly …

Episode 010 – A Tale of Two Lightrooms

In Episode by nnps1 Comment

Alas, double digits and it feels so good! We’ve got something special in store for this milestone: our first guest host! From the get go, our goal has been to introduce guests because… guests are cool and cool guests are even cooler. But unlike many other shows that make the episode about the guest, our goal is to bring on …

Episode 009 – Manners Maketh Man

In Episode by nnps2 Comments

We’re so close to double-digit episodes, we can taste it… and it tastes GOOD! In this episode, Brian refers to a recent experience he had with another photographer during a road trip to Grand Teton National Park. It promoted both hosts to talk about the etiquette—or, sometimes, lack thereof—that photographers should consider having. Being nice and paying it forward should …

Episode 008 – Why Doesn’t IG Love Me?

In Episode by nnps1 Comment

Ok, ok. We admit it. Episode 8 comes out of the gate a little hot but what can we say? Brian has a short fuse when it comes to the whiny and entitled crap that some photographers cry about. Like it or not but there is no democracy with sharing your photos online and, well, this one article put Brian …

Episode 007 – Shaken, Not Stirred

In Episode by nnps3 Comments

Episode 7 serves as a bit of a help group session for Sharky and Brian as they look inward to their feeling about Adobe Lightroom’s performance. They laughed, they yelled, they cried (silently and when no one was looking) as both recounted stories of untold minutes and hours wasted while their current photo manager and editor of choice chugged along.

Episode 006 – Is There A Cure For GAS?

In Episode by nnps1 Comment

Gear Acquisition Syndrome, that is. Why? Where did your minds go? In any event, Brian and Sharky kick off Episode 6 with a healthy discussion about power editing on the go using a tablet instead of a laptop. Speaking of gear, that segues us into the second topic of the show brought on by Sharky. Is it possible to have too much gear? Is there really such a thing?
