Be a guest interviewee on the podcast
Shutterbug Life is a weekly podcast that celebrates the creative photographer's lifestyle. Through a series of discussions, expert interviews, and photo challenges, the podcast examines everything you need to be, do, or have to reach your full photographic potential.
Most interview topics tend to focus on improving photographers' quality of life. I rarely use interviews to discuss the technical aspects of taking pictures.
The podcast agenda is fairly simple. Invited guests discuss their expertise or any topic that helps improve the photographer's quality of life. Professional photographer guests also share the stories or inspirations behind their work. Guest interviews range from about 15 - 30 minutes.
We record interviews using Skype. I'll ask you to use a headset and microphone to ensure the best quality sound.
If you have any books or material you would like to promote, we welcome that at the end of your interview.

Our podcast grew out of monthly free webinars I conducted for four years. In the past, our webinar speakers have included: Sharon Farmer, former White House director of photography; Evelyn Hockstein, a NY Times international photojournalist who showed her work from Israel and Kenya; Brandon Stanton, who has attracted millions of followers to his street portrait blog, Humans of New York; Hannele Lahti, a travel photographer who contributes to National Geographic; Greg Schmigel, a popular street photographer in NYC and DC, and Jim Campbell, who founded Instant DC, mobile photography exhibits. I try to cover a wide genre of photography that can inspire our listeners.
In 2015, we have expanded from monthly webinars to a weekly podcast format to broaden our reach and help more photographers. I'd love to introduce you and your expertise to our community.
