he fun of Weekend Wisdom and what's made it such a strong podcast is focusing pretty much on one topic and then just drilling it down as much as we can in the time allowed.
Meet my good buddy Bob Coates. We've been friends for a lot of years, and involved in a lot different conventions and projects together. One thing I've noticed, especially in the last few years, is Bob's leadership in testing out new technologies. He's always got a special project to work on, even if it's just trying out a new technique. As a result, Bob's skill set keeps growing and his creativity is never-ending.
In this new podcast Bob and I talk about the importance of taking advantage of everything technology has to offer. New technologies and special projects help keep your creative spirit alive, no matter what your bread and butter business might be.
If you're interested in seeing a great cross-section of Bob's work, visit his fine art site. Also check out his blog, Successful-Photographer.com for plenty of great how-to and inspirational ideas about imaging. You'll also find Bob's work, along with other members of Panasonic's Luminary team in the Lumix Lounge.
A BIG thanks to Bob for joining me on this new episode and to SproutingPhotographer.com. As always, a big thanks to Bryan Caporicci and Rob Nowell who created Weekend Wisdom. They kicked off a friendship that continues to grow. After only eight months Sprouting Photographer got Best of iTunes' podcasts in 2014. They've now grown to be one of the most listened to podcast in photography!
