A first time for everything

The team has recently experienced some milestone firsts but none bigger than Jess enduring her first mid-western snowstorm. She hails from Alabama and needless to say she is currently experiencing a little bit of climate-shock. Photographically speaking we talk about Meg and Jess successfully completing their first photo stories for the newspaper. Other highlights of this episode include Jess' first Pacesetter location portrait shoot and team surfing the blue wave on election night.

Om Podcasten

Photojournalism on the radio...sort of. The photography centric podcast is hosted by veteran photojournalist Todd Mizener with help from fellow photogs Todd Welvaert and Meg McLaughlin. Our goal is to both entertain and inform with our personal experiences or via interviews with a wide variety of guests. Mizener is the former Director of Photography for the Dispatch/Argus, a mid-sized daily newspaper, located in western Illinois along the banks of the Mississippi River in Moline, Ill. He is currently the Marketing & Communications Director for the D/A and Quad-City Times. We all get asked questions about our jobs and the podcast lets us answer some of those questions. It also affords us the opportunity to connect with readers, aspiring photographers, and learn a thing or two from our guests. The podcast is also an extension of our historically strong intern teaching program. Please email your questions and/or topic suggestions to talkingpicspodcast@gmail.com and don’t forget to tune each week for a new episode.
