Let’s Get Some Questions Answered – Episode 57

Hey friends, We Have a Question!

We’re trying something new over the next few episodes and this starts it off. Instead of a “topic”, we’re each taking a turn and asking the other two a bunch of questions and giving each a maximum of three minutes per answer. So, in this episode, Rob has six questions that he asks Rick and Tony who, by the way, have no idea what the questions are. The questions run the gamut from personal opinion to industry predictions and the guys do a great job of thinking and answering on their feet.

And, as you listen to the very beginning of the questions, you’ll hear just how “in the dark” Rick and Tony are!

Here’s what Rick and Tony answer this episode:

  1. What are the three biggest mistakes you’ve made in the past with your photography?
  2. What are the three largest successes you’ve had in the past?
  3. If you could change one thing about your photography, what would it be?
  4. Where do you think photography will be in five years?
  5. What is the biggest thing to have happened in photography?
  6. Which artist is your biggest influence for your photography?

Next episode will be Rick’s turn to put Rob and Tony on the hot seat!

Our Artists

Warewan ni Byaku by Riusuke FukahoriWe’re back with both a photographer and an artist to highlight. The photographer for this show is Sandy Skoglund – a modern day surrealist who, unlike her earlier peers, manages to keep the subject matter lighthearted and bright. We all really like her work and it may have something to do with… SQUIRREL! Search her site, you’ll find the image we’re talking about.

Moving on, we look at Japanese painter Riusuke Fukahori. He paints goldfish but they’re three-dimensional and painted on/with resin and inside of traditional Japanese containers. The results are breathtaking – make sure you watch the short video.


Whaddya think? Were their answers good, bad, or irrelevant? Let us know in the comments, okay? Thanks for listening.

Why Do We Shoot? Episode 10 Tries to Answer That


Never stop asking why or questioning yourself. Don't let it be a barricade to making art but let it be an inspiration and a drive to keep going.

Why do we shoot? There are so many reasons: from helping to overcome tough times to being inspired by others to ‘just because’. In today’s episode (#10 – yay us!!) we share what has brought each of us to this point in our photographic and artistic lives.

We’ll be honest, at times we may ramble a bit and, quite frankly, today’s episode probably raises more questions for us than it answers so we’ve decided that this is our “lost episode.” Have you been wondering why Rob is drawn to his exploration of figure studies and minimalism? Why does Tony focus so much on alternative print processes? Great questions and this is the episode where you get to start learning about us.

Thanks to everyone who has already become a loyal listener of our show – we really appreciate.

Oh, and a note to our listeners, don’t forget to join our Flickr group, follow Rob, Tony, and the show on Twitter, and if you are a woman with a background in dance or yoga and would like to work with Rob on some of his work in the studio, drop us a line.

Oh, and we finally start to show TAI some love.

Tonight’s featured photographer is Abelardo Morell
Our featured artist is Richard MacDonald (site auto-plays music)
