Grid

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!

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." What ensues is a spirited debate representing many points of view. Things really start heating up when the topic shifted slightly to nude photos… and then they just got plain old hilarious.

When RC joins Scott on the set, you know you're in for a controversy-studded, mirth-filled, epic episode, and this one is all that and an x100 camera strap. After an interesting discussion on Google+, RC chugs his Red Bull and dives into a topic that has been discussed heavily around the office - the Fuji x100. Scott & RC are definitely on the other side of public opinion on this one and they illustrate that honestly, and quite hilariously, with the 5 Stages of Owning a Fuji x100. Special thanks to Brian Mataish from onOne software for being such a good sport and donating a killer prize! Watch to find out how to win!
