Scott & Matt's in-studio guest, Dave Black lent his opinion to this week's topic, "Are the classic masters of photography relevant to today's young photographers?" and sparked the deepest and most involved conversation yet. As with most episodes, there are never any right or wrong answers but it will definitely get you thinking. We gathered some names and links to a few classic masters for your perusal. From now on, we'll also include a link to the live blog for each show in case you'd like to read what the live audience had to say.

Ok, Scott and RC do not mean to sound negative BUT….. Nah, just kidding. That was the topic that got this week's blues-laden episode of the Grid going. Interestingly enough, their main discussion - "Is just working harder enough to make it as a photographer today?" - left half the audience wired and inspired and half ready to throw their cameras away. Watch to win a copy of Scott's newest book and listen for some special announcements about a couple free webcasts coming up in two weeks!

The Grid breaks its record for craziest show ever! It started out as a thoughtful discussion on whether or not photographers are inadvertently turning off their audience on social media with some great insights from Scott's wife, Kalebra… but it wouldn't be The Grid if it didn't veer off the rails at some point, and that point happened when Scott decided to switch places with Nancy and try his hand at running the liveblog. Insanity ensued. Watch to find out how to win a copy of Matt's newest book.

Ladies and gentlemen, meet Tim Wallace. This episode started with a lot of "Who's that guy sitting next to Matt?" and ended with a rousing chorus of "We're not worthy!" as the Grid live audience got to know this UK-based automotive photographer and listen to his down-to-earth approach to photography that has taken him to some amazing heights in just four short years. This episode is non-stop inspiration and insight (with a few laughs along the way). Even if photographing cars is not your thing, you'll get a lot from watching Tim. Now, get on that bike and ride!

"Make it your own." These four words sum up a very spirited discussion between Scott, RC and the live viewers on whether or not it's ethical to take a picture snapped during a workshop (especially one where the instructor sets up the entire shot) and put it on your professional portfolio as a representative of your body of work to a potential client.

The lunatics are taking over the asylum! With Scott, Matt, and 90% of the video team out of the office - RC, Pete and Nancy (with the help of a skeleton crew of two behind the scenes) attempt to uphold what viewers love about the show (spontaneity, some laughs, a few technical bumps, and an interesting discussion). The audience got a little more than they bargained for in one area but the discussion, "Is it OK to work for free?" was definitely worth the wait… and the technical difficulties. A special thanks to Daniel & Tami from video for doing their absolute best under the circumstances.
