On this episode I chat with Pulitzer Prize winning photographer and commercial director Vincent Laforet. We’ve been friends for over a decade and we discuss Vincent’s background in photography, his transition from sports to news, from staff to freelance, from editorial to commercial, from stills to video, and back again. We talk about the importance of networking, workshops, diversifying, and the business of photography. We also learn more about Vincent’s upcoming project that will have him shooting aerials of major cities around the world. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this special birthday episode of The Photo Brigade Podcast.
On this very special episode, legendary photojournalist David Burnett joins me in our first Video podcast, recorded live at Adorama in NYC.

This is one you don’t want to miss. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this episode of The Photo Brigade Podcast!
Derek does most of the talking (there’s a good reason it’s not called “The Kurt Tape”), much of which concerns Derek’s reasons for wanting to put his neighbor, Terry, in the hospital, and his intention to do just that. Once the conversation turns to metal lore, though, and Derek’s enthusiasm kicks into high gear, it is hard not to get carried away with him as he talks about the important things in life
