Welcome to EDU10, a unique podcast series for photographers, sponsored by ProfotoUSA and focused on ideas to help you raise the bar on the quality of your images.
"EDU" is short for education, while "10" is all about keeping the information we want to share short and to the point. We're going to do our best to keep it to ten minutes and focus mostly on one unique topic, things you can do with lighting today that you couldn't do in the past!
JP Elario joins me on this first episode. It's a kick to talk with him because I've watched him grow up in this industry. I first met him when he joined his father, Joe, in the early 90's at what was then PhotoEast Expo in NYC. JP was a teenager, hungry to learn and focused on the pursuit of his career as a wedding photographer.
Here we are a whole lot of years later, and he's become one of the best photographers in the country. From that spark of passion way back when, I've watched him emerge an artist, educator, business owner, husband, passionate Dad, and always a great friend. He never compromises on the quality of an image or his relationships.
In the last few years, Profoto has completely changed the landscape of lighting with their Off Camera Flash Systems. I remember the B1 first being introduced and photographers referring to it as the "Game-changer." Profoto has never slowed down and continue to expand the selection of tools artists have to capture some of the best images in the world!

Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
