Rank #1: #16 - Social Media & Loneliness

Podcast cover
Read more
I have put the podcast on the back burner but here as another audio takeaway from my most recent little "film essay" on social media and loneliness.

It's something I have been chatting to lots of people about lately and I am not full against social media at all I just think many people are feeling this way. I am slowly starting to find my balance with using these tools and have basically cut my usage down to a quarter of what it used to be which has made me way more focused.

Guy’s Work: http://bit.ly/2tNwzZI

About Guy:
I’ve always been passionate about photography and sports, in particular skiing and snowboarding. This along with my love of people, travel and nature constantly drives me to explore and experience new horizons. I feel that the camera lens is a means to capture and combine the essence of natural backdrops along with the human force of extreme athletic performance.

I love photographing brilliant people in incredible surroundings with an emphasis on movement, speed and danger. My goal is to record striking and powerful photos that evoke emotion and fascination.I grew up in the hills surrounding Jerusalem and many of my local photographs echo both the uniqueness, divisions and similarities of the different faiths and cultures that live in the area. Being raised in a small country that’s never out of the news makes for a pressure cooker type of environment. That background is a part of what attracts me to vast mountain ranges and the warm camaraderie of the extreme sports world.

Bruin's Story:
Almost two years ago I had a chunk of money saved, was inquiring about down-payments and in the midst of finishing my junior year of university. A concussion had, rather abruptly, ended my hockey career and despite a well constructed front, I was confused. Really confused. Around that time I picked up an old 35mm camera and had a university professor tell me I ought to pursue my book. Fast forward and you might find me sitting in a cafe somewhere drinking a black coffee and reading a good book, same as always. It hasn’t been a smooth transition, the learning curve with photography turned out to be a lot steeper than expected, and I remain by far the toughest critic of my work. What it has done is fill the void left by the loss of athletics, and I treat it with just as much intensity and hard work. The book has had highs and lows, good and bad days, I guess thats true for all of it. I took the money and invested it, now I fill the my gas tank through licensed images, commercial work and writing gigs. Living in my Cherokee this year has allowed me to climb mountains in Alberta, surf in Oahu, tramp through the southern alps of New Zealand, watch the Yankees in the Bronx, road trip around Iceland, sip whisky in Scotland, scream from the edge of the great granite cliffs in Yosemite, get lost on long nights wandering the cobblestone streets of London and stargaze from the Grand Canyon. I woke up with the sun most mornings and spent evenings scribbling in a journal from the front seat of the car, it's been an amazing ride.

Rank #9: #06 - Riley Elliott: Shark Scientist

Podcast cover
Read more
Today a chat with shark scientist and marine biologist Riley Elliott. I came out of this one so so pumped up, he’s got to be one of the most passionate and tactical marine conservationists around today. Riley is one of few modern day ambassadors, who communicate science through social media using stimulating visual imagery.

Riley has played a massive part in ending the Western Australia shark cull and the ban of shark finning in New Zealand. In this episode we talk about how Riley got started in Marine Biology, his time studying in South Africa watching the Great Whites poach seals all day and then surfing in the same waters that evening, his formula to invoke change in policies, and just life in general. I had so much fun chatting with him and have massive massive respect for the marine conservation work he and his team have done.

Rank #10: #05 - Chris Burkard: Adventure Photographer

Podcast cover
Read more
A chat with Chris Burkard, arguably one of the most influential photographers of our time. Traveling throughout the year to pursue the farthest expanses of Earth, Chris works to capture stories that inspire humans to consider their relationship with nature, while promoting the preservation of wild places everywhere.

In this episode Chris was pressed for time as he was on the road, usually the podcast is more of a conversation and less formal but because of time constraints things were a little more ridged. Chris and I talk about a whole number of things in this episode including; what makes his photography standout, creating timeless work, work life balance and his new film Under an Arctic Sky.
