Ep 12 - Wedding Shaming
Wedding shaming is our new favourite internet-based hobby. On two huge Facebook groups, tens of thousands of people regularly insult, laugh at, and argue about dodgy cakes, ill-fitting dresses, and themed engagement shoots. Their content frequently goes viral, whether they want it to or not. Why are people really in these groups, and how harmful can stranger shaming be? Helen finds out.

Ep. #126 - Processed Bovine Expressions with Morgan Roberts
This week we’re joined by professional wedding guest, Morgan Roberts! Morgan is a wedding photographer from Moggill in Australia, just outside of Brisbane. We talk with Morgan about getting groped at a wedding, seeing a punch up at a wedding, watching an uncle get into a biffer… and that’s all just one story. We also talk with Morgan about weird copyright requests, Nikon vs. Fujifilm, and breaking out of a three month slump where he didn’t book any new weddings. Beer Talk: Morgan - Two 3 Bolt Pale Ales from Green Beacon Brewing Co. Steve - Bean Counter and InvEster from Taxman Brewing Co. Dustin - Nap in the Hammock from Metazoa Q&A: Do I need shark attack insurance for my surfing Santa sessions? Also, how do I keep Santa’s skin from getting prune-y? How can I get the okay to do a styled shoot with polyamorous kangaroos if their owner is dead set against it since they aren’t monogamous? What should you do if your client likes your photos a lot and recommends you to a bunch of other people, but never says they love the photos? Should I ask the client to replace my camera if someone got a smidge of butter and chicken on it at a wedding? UPDATE: I AM VEGAN AND MY CAMERA HAS BEEN TAINTED BY PROCESSED BOVINE EXPRESSIONS AND DEAD FOWL MEAT, SO IF YOU’RE A LEATHER STRAP TOTING DILDO JUST MOVE ON TO ANOTHER QUESTION!

Ep. #125 - The Third Annual Thanksgiving Special
In our third annual Thanksgiving special, we give thanks for all our blessings from this past year. It's been a great one so we have a lot to mention. We're both super thankful for our amazing families, for the great community that's formed around this podcast, and for listeners who leave positive reviews and then take a dump on Dustin's heart. What a blessing that last one was this past year. But seriously, thank you all so much for continuing to listen and support the podcast. We look forward to doing a ton more episodes because of all the awesome listeners out there like all of you. Have a great Thanksgiving! For our non-American friends, have a great random Thursday in November where you have to hear Americans talk about things they're thankful for on the internet.

Ep. #124 - Confounded Clients Do Shoot With Wrong Photographer, Don't Realize Till It's Over
Santa Sessions, the impending Thanksgiving holiday in the US, part 107 study sessions, and software for your cloud client are how we start this episode. Then we’re talking about guerrilla marketing, storage solutions, Olympus getting out of the camera game, and things that Instagram is testing on US users right now. Also, we talk about drones and privacy and Dustin surprisingly drops some drone knowledge from his studies. Beer Talk: Dustin - Cherry Wit-Held from Taxman Brewing Co. Steven - Build-A-Beer from Taxman Brewing Co. and Glutenberg’s IPA Q&A: What do you do if your client accidentally gets photos from another photographer during your session time? Do you feel like in another universe if you didn’t work weddings that you’d be able to be an Ed Sheehan fan? Should you create separate websites and brands for each niche of photography that you want to do? Or is it better to show you do more than just weddings?

Ep. #122 - Should You Deliver Proposal Photos if She Said No?
The mayoral campaign is over. The DJI Mavic Mini is out. Dustin's learning how to circumvent no fly zones with his drone, legally. Steve's doing corporate shoots and having Buscemi problems. We also talk Google Photos limits and the retouching features that Google consulted with wedding photographers on to get just right. Steve talks about his experience playing around with Fujifilm cameras at a Drink and Click meetup. Beer Talk: Dustin - Pumking by Southern Tier Brewing Company Steve - Black by Centerpoint Brewing Company and Novemberfest and Troll Storm by Sun King Brewery Q&A: If the answer to a proposal session was no, do you still deliver the photos? What do you do if you go to the wrong church? How do you keep that from happening in the future? How do you organize your collections in Lightroom? Links: Google consulted wedding photographers while developing facial retouching software for the Pixel 4 on the Verge. The episode of Reconcilable Differences where John Siracusa and Merlin Mann solved Steve's Google Drive problem while talking about Google Photos.
