326: Special Episode - Apple Announcement Oct 2018
They said it would never happen – that we were through, done for, washed up. Turns out, all it took was a new Mac Mini, Macbook Air, and an iPad Pro for us to dust off the mics and smash that record button. Is it a one off? Will there be more? Time will tell...
325: Closing The Loop
This week, we close the loop on 325 episodes of talking about photography, creativity, and sometimes just the ups and downs of life in general. It has been such a privilege to be a small part of your lives for the past six years. Speaking for myself, I am a better person for having done this show, though I would imagine Bill feels the same. This show has—in no uncertain terms—changed my life and whether you have listened to one episode or all of them, thank you for making time in your lives for us each and every week. I don’t think either one of us know what’s next, but I do know that we would love to keep the conversations going. Thank you again for six amazing years.

324: Another Stick in the Spokes
With only one more episode of OTP left, this week we actually start with a discussion around photography—specifically, focusing on the tools (either hardware or software) you need or will actually use in your creative workflow. Sometimes we get caught up in looking at all of what a camera or piece of software does or is capable of doing without looking at what we actually need it to do. Also, a continuation of last week’s discussion where we talk about Don McCullin’s view that at least some of his professional life was wasted documenting the human suffering associated with war. Alfred Stanley Johnson is our Photographer of the Week. Links for this episode:Jeffery Saddoris on Instagram: “An example of the in-camera keystone correction on the @getolympus #em1mk2.
