Episode 19 - Photography Induced Dopamine - Molly Porter

During our recent travels to "Out of Chicago" this past June, we had the pleasure of running into a good friend of the show, the mighty Molly Porter. A prolific and formidable force in the world of Mobile Street Photography and this week, we're bringing her story to you.

We go down many roads during this interview with Molly, including how the mobile phone sparked her interest in street photography, her ongoing inspirations and above all, the unspoken reality of male dominance in street photography today. A topic near and dear to Molly, an artist who uses her work and voice to equalize that invisible barrier and we are proud to offer that segment as part of the discussion with our listeners.

By the way, if you're digging the show, we ask that you please support us through our Patreon page. For as little as a $1.00 a month (or as much as you wish) you can be a part of something awesome... Plus, there is a ton of bonus content and great rewards awaiting those who join in. It's as easy as skipping a coffee each month and everything helps to keep these mics hot.

Special Edition - 50 Miles Under Foot at Streetfoto w/Mike Manzano

Welcome to a Special Extended Edition of StreetPX!

It's time to look back on the epic week that was Streetfoto. An organized festival focused on street photography, organized by the intrepid, Ken Walton.

As a bonus, we also sit down with Mike Manzano, a friend of the show and fantastic bay area photographer. We hope you enjoy this hybrid interview/recap episode. While we promised Mike that it would take only an hour or two of his day, the clock got away from us and we went far beyond our set run time... Oh well, there was a lot to cover and we've never proved adept at keeping things brief.

I'd say more, but that's what the show is for... Go ahead and hit play. It's a long one, so listen in while you edit your work and the time will fly by.

Check out the original post at Special Edition Episode 16for group photos and more links than you'll know what to do with.
