Ep 110 – Photographer Mike Wilson

You have questions; Ron and Shawna have answers! Photographer and Model is your one stop shop for everything model photography.

Sometimes photographers bring really cool ideas or props to the table. Photographer Mike Wilson is probably the only guy who has brought something from 30,000 leagues to the table, though. He also had some interesting perspectives on this week’s listener question which, without surprise, Ron was able to relate to firearms. Check out this awesome interview with “The Nowhere Man.”

Ep 109 – Photographer Oleg Volk

You have questions; Ron and Shawna have answers! Photographer and Model is your one stop shop for everything model photography.

When you interview models and photographers every week, you hear all
kinds of reasons for why they became involved in model photography.
Never before this episode, however, had we heard “concern for the
direction of American politics” as one of those reasons. Allow us to
introduce photographer Oleg Volk. He is one of those photographers
that can use the verb “shoot” in a variety of contexts. If you browse
firearm catalogues and publications, chances are you have seen some of
his work. In this episode we shoot the breeze with Oleg, and amongst
other things, he tells us what it is like to train models to handle a

Ep 107 – Designers SINched

You have questions; Ron and Shawna have answers! Photographer and Model is your one stop shop for everything model photography.

Models and photographers are not the only ones with unique tales from
the set. Designers SINched have stiched together some strange and very
cool stories for us in this episode. Plus, they were kind enough to
offer their insight on how they select models and photographers to
showcase their products. Speaking of SINched products, their designs,
and this week’s discussion, are not limited to corsets. We talk kevlar
and historical costuming, just to give you an idea. Check it out!

Ep 106 – Photographer Larry Munne

You have questions; Ron and Shawna have answers! Photographer and Model is your one stop shop for everything model photography.

This week’s guest is pinup photographer Larry Munne, a long time fan of the podcast and instructor of photography. We have had pinup photographers on the show before (one excellent example being Robert Alvarado), but Larry is not just a rehash of pinup talk. We had an awesome time discussing fashion concepts for weddings, model theatrics, and why you might not want to take photos full time. If that were not enough, we even talk Weiner…and why his shenanigans raise a bigger question: will the photos you post in your model photography ventures come back to haunt you? Check it out.

Ep 105 – Model Cheechi

Who says that a model’s career is over at 29? For some gorgeous models like Cheechi, a modeling career begins after 30. In this episode, Cheechi tells us how she made a name and a career for herself in a small Texas town. Sometimes success requires you to expect the unexpected!

Ep 104 – The End of Season Two

Photographer and Model stepped up the podcast with Season Two. Aside from the usual exciting interviews, we brought you more special episodes, an epic 100th show, and a ton of surprise tidbits. Now we are sure you are asking, “Where could Photographer and Model possibly go from here in Season Three?” Episode 104 has your answer!

Ep 103 – Photographer Bucket

When you are starting out as a model photographer, it helps to photograph the people you know. If those people just happen to be really interesting to look at, all the better. In this episode, super-talented photographer Bucket tells us about shooting in the alt scene, why bigger is better, and how style and wisdom are linked.

Ep 102 – Model Hazel Brun

What makes a model a good “workshop model?” How should a model prepare for a workshop? Workshop, workshop, workshop! Model Hazel Brun has done her share of workshops, and she offers us some useful tidbits on how to get the most out of them. If that were not enough, she also gives us some interesting insight on where the line is drawn between creepy photographer and professional.
