  • Eric Burgers

    Cool surprise episode :-) . Guess what – I was actually doing a photoshoot this weekend for a band! Talk about coincidence!

  • Aaron Nace

    Everything you see belongs to the bands, we have no part in that.

    Nice.  Adam’s been a big influence for me as a fellow band photographer.  Good to hear him talking about it as well.  My band stuff here:

  • Dave

    Iphone + Vimeo = :(

  • Daniel James T. Cook

    Hey Dave, Vimeo is built to be compatible with iPhone. Which iPhone do you have and what ios version?

  • Sean Webb

    Interesting. It would have been more so if I could have heard Adam. :)

  • Michael Nightmare

    I started out doing band photography it was awesome to see all the bands I liked to play for free every weekend but then I started to have to do with record labels and bands that showed up late or had no idea what was going on once I started to get into more than just the live shots end and decided that was not for me.
