On this episode I chat with my friend Ty Wright. He and I go way back to the beginning of my photography career. Back when I was first picking up a camera in high school, Ty was working at the local camera store where I purchased gear and had my film developed. At the time he was photo student at Ohio University’s School of Art. Since those days, he’s transitioned into a photojournalist working for a handful of local newspapers and eventually came back to OU to get his masters degree at the School of Visual Communication. We talk about all those transitions, going through grad school, internships, mentors, backpacking through Central America, pitching stories, developing projects, business practices, and much more. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this episode of The Photo Brigade Podcast.
