Summary: Denver Photographers Levi Tijerina and Adonye Jaja give their take on photography, race, culture, life, and art. With special guests from both Colorado and beyond, this podcast is dedicated to talking about the things that are hidden and to expose the hidden thoughts, mindsets, and realities around the things we encounter within the wedding industry...for better or worse.
Today we talk with special guests and ARC // The Experience attendees: Amber Hughes, Lynnsey Phillips, Sharalee Prang, and Ben Blood and the offer insights into a handful of things that we need to expose within the wedding industry. Lastly some farewells, and hopefully some ways that we can bring the goodness of ARC to the rest of the world (or at least Denver).
Day Two of The Experience! We talk about our anxiety about giving presentations, food in Vancouver, and some of the things we've learned from Day Two at ARC. Also, Levi made a stupid decision that you get to hear all about it. Levi also beat AD in Ping Pong, so, that's pretty awesome.
We out here in Vancouver! Day One of Arc is in the books--here are a few things we took away from the day and some thoughts from some of our favorite presentations, courtesy of Mastin Labs, Truvelle, and Junebug Weddings
Hey Arc! We out here! Come say "hey" and we're looking forward to having an awesome time with ya'll out here in Vancouver this week.
Oh man, this is one of our heaviest episodes yet. We're talking about transracial adoption today. We're dealing with white supremacy, the eradication of Black Culture, what it means to be Black in America, and how to celebrate our heritage in a way that builds up growth and healing. Sit back with this one, it's going to be a ride. We also talk about family photos and free photography. That's the light stuff, it's at the end if you don't like to deal with hard things.
This week, things get REAL raw. Levi and AD speak candidly (and possibly controversially) about past topics (race and #metoo) but also talk about virtue signaling. Lastly: what's your thought on photo manipulation? When it comes to editing photos, how far is too far? Let us know your thoughts—there's a lot to talk about this week!
This week from Photo Rehab, Adonye catches up with India Earl and Jay Piacitelli. Between owning a harvest of chickens, traveling the road, and two snuggly pups, these two talk about the lessons, mistakes, and growth that they've experienced over the past few years within the industry and the things they're working on next. You can find out more about these two at www.indiaearl.com and www.raisedbywoodsfilms.com.
Today we have our Battle Royale: wedding photographers vs. wedding videographers! Put up your dukes, because we're going to battle it out: what do we do that drives each other crazy?
