The Photo Brigade Podcast

On this episode Robert chats with his friend and fellow Ohio Bobcat alumnus, Marcus Yam who is currently serving as a 3 -year resident photojournalist at the Seattle Times. Before photography, Marcus was on the path to becoming, get this, a rocket scientist, but changed his career path by attending graduate school at Ohio University's School of Visual Communication a few years after Robert graduated. He came to New York and apprenticed with Robert for a bit and soon after graduation, like Robert, landed an internship at The New York Times. There continued on as a freelancer working on amazing projects where he won a host of awards including an Emmy. There's something really special about Marcus from his humility, his generosity, and tremendous love for life. There's so many quotes and words of wisdom that come out in my chat with him, so get your notebook ready! Sit back, relax, and enjoy this episode of The Photo Brigade podcast.
