100 Episodes of anything is a pretty monumental feat. Now I know not everyone has heard the early days of RAWtalk, the days when I used to throw poker chips across the table to award points for solid comments or statements. That honestly did not last to long because I always forgot to give them out until the very end.
Fro reader Doug Peters asked if he could compile episodes 1-100 with funny moments, solid tips and all around RAWness. I said sure, go for it. The results are two hours of a compilation of moments from the first 100 episodes of FroKnowsPhoto RAWtalk.
I hope you enjoy the look back and don’t forget you can download each episode of RAWtalk as an Mp3 going all the way back to Episode #001. The Video portion did not start until somewhere around Episode #17 where we used one gopro angle.
You will also notice how the audio quality of the show continued to get better and better when Stephen Eckert joined the team. I have to say a HUGE than you to him for taking the initiative to take this show to places I could not have taken it on my own.
Thank you to everyone out there who has listened, comments, submitted questions or just enjoyed!!!
I sat down with my very first photography mentor (Matt Ciao) to take a walk down memory lane. He does not hold back when he talks about how annoying I was when I was 15. We also talk about what was given to us by one of our teachers in college that goes in your wallet next to the condom.
But the big reveal came when Matt divulged the reason behind me deciding to purchase my very first Nikon SLR.
Was Stephens’s sister’s wedding photographer a bust or did he end up kicking ass? If you recall episode #100, Stephen’s sister found out two weeks before her wedding that the photographer she hired would no longer be shooting her big day. Instead, he was sending someone else she had never met or seen their work.
RAWtalk Ep. 101 Photography Podcast: The No Singing No Interruption Episode (may include singing and interruptions)
I love when I ask for solid questions and you guys deliver them for the flying solo potion of the show!!!! We are prepping to hit head to Poland And Germany thanks to BlackRapid who has sponsored the trip.
I hope to be announcing some meet ups in Poland and Germany shortly. We probably won’t be doing mobile RAWtalks from those ares just yet but a fun hangout will be just as fun.
Stephens Photo News like always is filled with ZERO disruptions and zero singing. If you believe that I have a bride I would like to sell you.
We wrap up this weeks show with solid solid flying solo questions as well as Top 5’s that you guys submitted. Keep an eye out for when I request the flying solo questions come in.
Thanks to RODE Microphones, Atomos, AllensCamera.com and all the sponsors on the Wheel Of Fro!!!!

GoPro Debuts First Dog Mount
GoPro debuted it’s first official dog mount so now you can get a first person view of what your dog sees. Called the “Fetch” mount, it’s a harness system that wraps around your dog similar to a dog collar. The mount will let you mount up to two GoPro’s–one on the dog’s back and one under his neck / stomach region. The mount is a one-size-fits all solution that will work with any dog that weighs anywhere from 15-200 lbs. Price wise, it’ll cost you $60. Will you be getting one for your dog?
This week we are testing out releasing the audio and video at the same time!!!
We have made it to the 100th Episode of FroKnowsPhoto RAWtalk. What started as an idea to have a roundtable discussion each week has morphed a few times to get to where it stands today.
When it started we did not record video, just audio. But something always told me that audio alone is not enough, we needed to add video. When I started to record video it was done with a static GoPro camera with the audio running into it. The quality was fine but nothing over the top.
I wanted better audio, better video and a show that stood out above the other photography podcasts. The missing piece to the puzzle was Stephen Eckert. I knew Stephen had audio skills, so i asked him to help me out with recording each week. Right away he said I should add more camera angles and that he would edit them. Talk about grabbing the balls by the horns, he took initiative.
For our second Mobile RAWtalk we bring the circus to Santa Rosa which is about an hour outside of San Francisco. ThinkTank Photo the makers of the camera bags I use were gracious enough to open up their office for this special episode.

Stephen started off the show with a very special announcement that has been a year and a half in the making. Tune in for the first few minutes to get the scoop.
I sat down with one of the founders of ThinkTank, Kurt Rodgers for a quick interview before we jumped into the Photo News, discussions and LIVE Flying Solo.

A Battery Made Out Of Something You Can Smoke?!
Well we didn’t see this coming: Researchers have discovered and demonstrated a new method to make efficient batteries out of hemp. Yup, read all the science talk about it over on PetaPixel. Pretty crazy right?
