This week's podcast interviews three folks influencing the world of photography. First up is Adobe's Bryan O’Neil Hughes who discusses his view's on where photography is heading. Then Rich Harrington and Levi Sim talk about storytelling and photography. Finally, Melissa Niu sits down with top wedding photographer Jonas Peterson.
Bryan O’Neil Hughes
Bryan O’Neil Hughes is the Senior Product Manager for Adobe Photoshop software and a pinch hitter for the Photoshop Lightroom software team. Since 1999 he has helped to test, drive, demonstrate, and lead development of Adobe’s professional digital imaging applications. Bryan is the Photoshop team’s primary worldwide spokesman and can often be found leading seminars, user groups, and workshops.
Before joining Adobe, he was a professional photographer and retoucher. Beyond Adobe, Hughes is a published photographer, editor, and author. He is also a driving instructor for the BMW Car Club of America. When he isn’t driving very quickly, he enjoys running marathons very slowly. Bryan was inducted into the Photoshop Hall of Fame in 2011.
Be sure to catch up with Bryan at this year's Photoshop World.
Levi and Bryan discuss:
Gerard has had a passion for photography since borrowing his Mom’s Pentax as a kid on family vacations. Later, Gerard turned this passion into Mosaic which he co-founded. He is also an avid Lightroom advocate and teacher of Lightroom tips and tricks.
Rich and Gerard discuss:
Jonas left a highly awarded career as a writer in advertising to become a wedding photographer. More than one eyebrow was raised, but he had an idea that stories through wedding photography could be told differently. Should be told differently.
Today he’s one of the most sought after destination wedding photographers around, shooting weddings all around the world. He has shot weddings in almost all parts of the world, using his unique storytelling through simple – yet beautiful – imagery.
His home is Melbourne, Australia, but he’s on the road around the world for half of the year, so never assume he won’t be able to shoot your wedding, no matter where it is.
