Creation Wars: “The Karen Hutton Special!” (I’m quoting here)

It’s always fun and, let’s be honest, a little weird to be the special guest on a show. I mean, 99% of the time I’m focused whatever I’m creating next. So when someone asks me to talk about what I know, I sometimes get a little self-conscious.

But it is fun to share – I think that’s a human thing. So I figured what the heck – and joined awesome hosts Tanya Wallis and Stu Davidson on  Creation Wars last week. And ya know what? It’s was fun and I didn’t feel too weird!

CW is the official online show of Trey Ratcliff’s The Arcanum, where they talk about all kinds of photography-related learning. With me, it was kind of topic-palooza; from the creative process, to critiques,  to what I always have in my camera bag.

I put the show notes just below the video, with what was said and where – just in case you want to skip around and hear only what interests you. 😉

The Chat with Karen Hutton: Frederick Van Johnson

Thank Goodness for Re-Do’s

The first time we tried doing a Chat last December, Frederick Van Johnson and I were in a mood. A silly mood. A silly, goofy, kid-like  mood that resulted in recording an entire episode that I actually had to scrap! That’s what happens when Frederick and I get together sometimes, er, a lot of the time! Got friends like that? Where anytime you hangout all hell-arity breaks loose? Hahahah, it’s funny and I love it. But it didn’t do the right job of presenting the absolutely amazing Frederick Van Johnson.

Today’s episode does!

My Awesome Visit to The Grid!

THE GRID

It All Started When…

How did this all happen? Well, my friend Kalebra Kelby invited me! When Kalebra did an episode of The Chat in Fall, 2013… we had such fun, we didn’t want it to end. So Kalebra piped up: “Come to Florida!” To which I cried: “An ADVENTURE! I’m in!” To which she responded “You can be on The Grid when you’re there!” And I exclaimed “Really? Cool! That’ll be fun!”

That’s pretty much how it happened.

THE CHAT with Karen Hutton: Laurie Rubin

In keeping with our “awesome photographer” roll of late, I was SUPER stoked to Chat with Laurie Rubin!

She’s a Googler, award-winning wildlife and nature photographer and I’m delighted that she’s also my friend.
When it comes to animals and photography – you have never seen someone drop into “the zone” faster than Laurie when she’s got a critter in her photographic crosshairs. It’s an amazing transformation to behold! She’s so understated about her fabulous work… but I think you’ll agree with me that it’s pretty much jaw-dropping.

Laurie’s made a career and life out of photography… both with camera in-hand and as part of the NIK Software team that joined Google. There, she is part of a team on the cutting edge of some of the most exciting developments in photography today. Even still, home and heart is out in nature with her beloved animals. It’s all part of the inspired world of Laurie Rubin… who today, shares her photography, advice for young’ns just starting out, and the great humor and passion that makes her photo-awesome!
