    16. Overcoming Mountains w/ Elizabeth Gadd

    09/10/2017 Duration: 52min

    This weeks episode is a banger! We chat with Elizabeth Gadd, Canadian photographer of portraits and landscapes, and the whimsical combination of the two. Lizzy shares her wisdom on creative ruts, putting emotion into all of her work, enjoying moments in nature instead of getting distracted by a camera, and so much more!! Another first for this episode is the appearance of our first ever canine guest Pepper! I know it seems excessive, but there's not enough exclamation points to explain how great this episode is!!!!

    We go in depth with our editing process in this episode, so dive in for some good info on our approach towards translating our photos in to a finished product. To clarify, we discuss a photo in Iceland of the aurora that Cam says we took at the same time, and then Will says Cam was asleep. We took the same photo and then a few hours later, after Cam fell asleep, Will went back and reshot it (in better conditions).
