The Photo Brigade Podcast

On this episode Mike Isler makes a house call, so Robert sat him down for a podcast in his living room. Mike is a stellar photographer, digital tech, first assistant, and aerial technician where he works with photographers from helicopters, airplanes, cranes and rooftops providing assistance, coordination, and most importantly, safety. He's also very skilled with any sort of lighting, whether shooting stills in the studio or on a film set where he works as an assistant camera operator pulling focus, building camera systems, and on top of it all, he's a licensed airplane pilot. Wish we could say he was as talented at the poker table as he is with everything else previously mentioned, but alas, it's just not the case. They talk about all sorts of interesting projects he's been working on and and the craft of building production estimates for large corporate and advertising gigs. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this episode of The Photo Brigade Podcast.

On this episode of The Photo Brigade podcast, Robert chats with a good friend and Photo Brigade's very own Pixel Pimp, Warren Winter. They met at the poker table while Robert was an intern at the New York Times. Born in to a photojournalist family, Warren watched his father cover a range of sporting and news events. He's lived in Prague, New York City and Chicago, worked for a slue of photo agencies like Sipa, Zuma, WPN, Polaris, WireImage, and now runs his own agency called PSG and has become a book publisher on top of it all. They talk about everything from licensing your archives, negotiating with a range of clients, contracts, the economics of self-publishing, and one of the scariest days of his life covering the 9/11 attacks in New York. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this episode of the Photo Brigade Podcast.
