"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. Plus, find out how to win a copy of Scott or RC's book and stay to the end for the "Portfolio Blues."

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.

Scott is back from his European seminar tour and is joined by Matt and PSW Instructor, Rich Harrington. Today's topic: "C'mon… Admit it… You use Photoshop" - a lively discussion about why Photoshop is still seen as a taboo addition to photography by some, regardless of the fact that ~every~ photographer uses it. The discussion turns to "digital vs. darkroom"… And then careens right off the rails as Scott regales the audience with a lovely song about Brad's experience in Amsterdam.

RC joins Matt in the studio while Scott's seminar tour touches down in Germany. The guys are joined by iconic Sports Illustrated photographer, Bill Frakes to comment on a discussion that RC and Matt have been going back and forth on for a few days… "What's on your Wall."
