    I think you posted this almost at the same time as I finished listening to Part 1. Excellent conclusion to an excellent podcast. Many thanks.

    Hi Matt,

    What a great podcast we have just had.
    I want to thank you for letting us grow as photographers through your Blog. Personally I did not know Nevada before this post (I know I’m illiterate πŸ˜‰ and now she is one more artist that I can learn from.
    Thank you again!

    Don’t ever let me drink a glass of wine before a podcast ever again! (Matt warned me… but did I listen…no!)

    I think it is wonderful that Matt is doing these podcasts and I’m honored to be included.

    It is hard times in the professional world for Travel and Stock Photographers (I think Fashion and Commercial are a bit safer … for now): but for the avid amateur it is the best time of all to learn and grow from pros and peers. So much sharing and good information (like all your wonderful posts and books, David).

    Rock on!

    Nevada made mention of the interview on her Facebook page and provided a link. Not only did I find the interview well worth while, I also enjoyed reading this blog for the first time! Excellent information throughout…!

    Jeffrey, thankfully these are not to be topped, only added to on a regular bases. Each interview is another ingredient in the mix. I think Nevada is some of the spice. πŸ˜‰

    Can’t wait to listen to part 2. Flash does intimidate me – so I avoid it. And yes, digital is far more expensive, but the ability to have start to finish control over color processing is worth it!

    Thanks Nevada and, once again, Matt. DoF is great listening and this is yet another great interview. I like the cosy fireside chat style. All very easy and inspiring listening. Great to be ‘introduced’ to another brilliant and generous photographer and have two more sites bookmarked for this ‘avid’ photographers online learning.

    Jean & Nevada – Yes, I agree digital is over all more costly. You have gear + etc… while before in the film days it was just gear + film. But, what I was referring to, was the learning of the art. In the days of film it was very costly to practice and learn from our mistakes. I could not afford to go out and shoot 100 frames a day to learn what f1.2 did at different distances. But today the newbie can do just that. It make it easier for the beginner to perfect his/her craft.

    Often i wonder what it takes (logistics speaking) other than talent and gears, for successful pros to make their images…I really loved these 2 very “street smart” oriented interviews. Matt i found your questions to be very practical and with Nevada’s generosity, they brought lots of useful “behind the scenes” information.
    Both your sites are now in my bookmarks…
    Thanks a bunch to both of you.

    Great interview with Nevada. Great questions from Matt and wow lots of info from Nevada. Among many great topics: I enjoyed the discussion about the challenges of growing as a photographer once you've gone beyond the initial leaps from okay to good to excellent…what comes after; the talk discussions about keeping it simple when you are first starting out; the importance of sharing through teaching …. and Nevada is right, digital IS more expensive than film once you get past the beginner/novice stage, especially if you are doing your own printing and staying at the cutting edge with your software and cameras. It may be more inexpensive to learn with digital at the beginning, but wow, once you get into it and try to stay at the top of your field there's few faster ways to go broke. Thank you Nevada and Matt for some great interviews and good topics of discussion.
