On this special episode Robert chats with the portraitist Gregory Heisler who he'd just met in Boston, while they were both on assignment for Sports Illustrated Magazine where Gregory shot a cover photo that involved an elaborate production, closing down a busy city block at the Boston Marathon finish line on the one-year anniversary of those terrible Boston bombings. It turns out they have a lot in common, including a mentor, Arnold Newman, who in a strange way brought them both to Manhattan at the beginning of their careers. They talk about connecting with those who inspire you, how to build on those relationships, professionalism, looking back on Gregory's own bushiness practices, branding, promotion, social media, networking, and much, much more. So sit back, relax, and and have a coffee with us at the Westin Copley Place in downtown Boston.

On this episode Robert Caplin follows up with his friend and Ohio Bobcat graduate student Sara Lewkowicz. Robert first chatted Sara with on Podcast #4 last year just after she had shot a powerful project on domestic violence that began as a simple class assignment in her Photojournalism sequence at Ohio University. After documenting a violent exchange between a couple she began documenting, her project began to gain national and international acclaim after it was published in TIME Magazine. Since then, Sara has won a host of awards, grants, and even her upcoming internship at National Geographic Magazine as part of her College Photographer Of the Year win. They talk about going through all that, what's next, and much more. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this episode of The Photo Brigade Podcast.
