48: Pre School Update

It has been a couple weeks now since my son has been enrolled in preschool. Given the time that has passed I’ve received questions from other parents about how the experience has been. In today’s episode I share a little bit of what it’s been like from both my wife, and I. Also I share our son has been learning, and how his experience has been as a preschooler.

45: Talking Games and Sports w/guest Chris

 Today we are back with guest Chris. We’re talking about games, teaching your kids about losing, and how to process losing. It can be difficult as a parent to try to convey what it means to lose at a game. Taking the time to help our children through these moments and help develop them as they grow into adulthood is a very important lesson. 

44: Teaching Your Kids How To Handle Loosing A Game

Playing games and teaching the lessons of being a good sport while winning as well as processing how to take a loss is something all parents teach their children. In todays episode I share my experience teaching my son as well as two other dads take on how they play games with their kids.

33: Learn To Break Up

We all know those people who break up one day and then get back together the next. Im not here to throw anyone under the bus but I did think it would be an interesting subject to talk about on todays podcast. Dating in our school years prepares us for dating as adults. So as a parent it begs the question when do we allow our kids to start dating? Do we even need to "allow" them to start dating or do we let them make that decision on their own? All this and more on todays podcast.

20: My Son Feels Like He Got Lost

Fear can creep in at a young age for out children and in todays episode I talk about how my son felt he was lost when he woke up to what seemed to be an empty house. When I put my son to bed the other night I went into the garage to gets some work done. Little did I notice that he had got up and out of bed only to find himself in an “empty” house. When I came in he looked at me a little scared and told me he got lost. He was referencing a book we’ve read at night about a puppy who gets lost in a grocery store.

19: Ending The Photography Podcast

Today Im announcing the end of my photography podcast. Well not so much an end but more of a re branding. I have been thinking about what my intentions were for this podcast for a few months now and came to the realization that though I love capturing images I don’t really love talking about cameras or photography. So I decided to talk about something that I am passionate about on this podcast. That something is parenthood and being a father. I have envisioned being a parent for as long as I can remember and now that I am its something I talk about often in my day to day. I am also looking at this as a catalog of experiences that my children can ( if they want to) look back on and hear my thoughts or words of advice. As we get older we sometimes forget what it was like raising our little ones so when our children one day become parents I think it would be great to not only be able to help but to also have something like this that documents my learning/journey as its happening. So thank you for those who have supported the podcast. If hearing about parenthood interests you stick around.

15: iPhone X Photography

New phone = new upgraded camera. So how do I capture better photos with the new iPhone X? In todays podcast we go into detail about some of the things you can do to step up your photo game. Some things still remain the same no matter the device you are using.

  1. The Rule of Thirds.

    in your cameras settings you can turn on the “grid” overlay. This will overlay some intersecting lines onto your screen. Then make sure one of the object you want the viewer to focus on in one of these cross sections. This is a simplified explanation of the rule of thirds.

  2. Clean Your Lens

    No matter how expensive your camera may be shooting with a dirty lens will result in amateur quality images. Unless it is a creative direction you are taking with your photograph I recommend cleaning your lens before capturing any image.

  3. Using the cameras features

12: Setting your price as a photographer

The transition from doing free photo sessions as you build your portfolio to telling those first potential clients that you are now charging for your services can be hard. It is a door we all have passed through as we move to monitize our time. In todays podcast I talk about how to find your price as a photographer.

11: Rodecaster Pro review/preview

Today Im reviewing/previewing the Rodecaster Pro. A one stop shop mixer for the podcast enthusiast and even prosumer podcaster. Often Im asked about my set up but with the way I've wired things to work for me it would be too lengthy an episode. So instead I thought id share my thoughts on a new product from Rode that I would recommend to anyone starting out that wants to invest in some good equipment.
