On this episodeRobertI chats with photographer Brian Powers who was in Manhattan recently for the New York Times portfolio review back in April. Brian was one of an entire staff of nearly 30 photographers at the Chicago Sun Times who were unceremoniously laid off to make way for wire and writer-contributed art. He's since gone back to Western Kentucky University to complete the degree he postponed when he was hired as a staffer a few years back. They talk about business, networking, workshops, and all his recent transitions in this episode of the Photo Brigade Podcast.
