Episode #118: Penny de los Santos

Episode #115: Doug Gordon

In this episode of reDefine, we sat down with Doug Gordon, shock value master, and recent recipient of a UN Leadership Award.  We met up in New York and talked about how his unique, willing-to-cross-the-line personality has actually led to his very successful business, and if you have ever heard Doug speak or follow him on social media, you might understand why we had to edit this piece down just a bit.  But, we were left with an educational and excellent conversation.

Episode #114: Paula Poundtsone

In this episode of reDefine, we talk with the very funny Paula Poundstone, one of the top 100 comedians of all time.  Paula joins us from her home in Los Angeles to share why being a stand-up comic is pretty much like being any other creative, you can get exhausted looking at your competition, instead of focusing on your own work.  Paula also shares why, after a diagnosis of OCD, she realized it was nearly impossible to corral her own self, which led straight to her very successful, and wildly unique creative style.

Episode #113: Scott Bourne

In this episode of reDefine we joined photographer, and controversial media personality, Scott Bourne, in his Las Vegas studio. We discuss why Scott loves photographing birds, specifically, and why good media should cause viewers to react. Positively, or negatively, they should react. And, listen in as he shares some no-nonsense advice for anyone looking to excel in the creative arts.

Episode #112: Tyler Stableford

In this episode of reDefine, we talked with Tyler Stableford, one of the top adventure photographers in the world as ranked by Men’s Journal, and director of the award-winning film, The Fall Line. We met up in New York to talk about some of his more hazardous experiences, such as photographing through extreme G-forces and shooting on the floor of a coal mine while it was actually bouncing up. And listen in as he explains why volunteering is one of the most important, and selfish ways, to advance your craft and your career.

Episode #111: Sue Bryce

In this episode of reDefine, we caught up with the very talented Sue Bryce, Australia’s Portrait Photographer of the Year.

And, listen in as Sue shares how she took her business from nothing, to $20,000 a week, because the last thing your business model should be is an afterthought.

Episode #110: Art Streiber, Part 2

Thanks for tuning into the second part of our interview with iconic portrait artist Art Streiber. We continue our chat as he tells us his greatest limitation is the time he actually gets to work with his high profile subjects, and how focusing too much during a shoot can actually make you lose the perfect shot. Also, a question from my fairly obsessed young daughter – what was it like to work with Justin Bieber?

Episode #109: Art Streiber

On today’s episode of reDefine we talk to iconic portrait artist, Art Streiber. We were fortunate enough to catch up with him while he was prepping for a photo shoot for Town and Country Magazine at Industria Super Studios in New York City. Art tells us about how making a name for yourself is more of a marathon than a sprint. And, even though his portfolio is a veritable who’s who of Hollywood and beyond, Art shares what his number one dream job would be.

Episode #108: Jasmine Star

In this episode of reDefine, we talked with celebrated wedding photographer Jasmine Star, recently selected as one of the top 10 wedding photographers in the world by American Photo Magazine. We managed to find some time while we were both speaking at WPPI- U in Atlanta to discuss running a streamlined business by learning how to say “no.” Listen in as Jasmine shares how to personalize your brand, and the importance of always practicing your craft.

Episode #107: Chase Jarvis, Part 2

This episode of reDefine is the second part of our interview with photographer and director Chase Jarvis, conducted in his Seattle studio. In this second part of a 2-part episode, Chase gets very real about how he deals with critics, actually taking pride in being disruptive. And, in an answer to our 22-part question, Chase says its not just about handling your imagery, but also your image.

Episode #106: Chase Jarvis, Part 1

This episode is part one of our two part interview with photographer and director Chase Jarvis. Tamara met with him in his sleek Seattle studio. In the episode, Chase shares his journey to becoming a 10 year “overnight” success, which included more no’s early on than you might think, and just how much inspiration for his visionary work comes from outside of photography.

Episode #105: Matthew Jordan Smith

Tamara talks with beauty and fashion photographer, Matthew Jordan Smith, about shooting what you love, how to get out and make business happen, and his favorite photography “toys.”

Episode #104: Kevin Kubota

Tamara Lackey catches up with Kevin Kubota at the Mirage in Las Vegas. He shares how he’s reinventing his wildly successful career, announcing his retirement from photographing weddings – despite being ranked as one of the top wedding photographers in the world – so he can better focus on the work he loves to do. Kevin shows of some of his new work and shares some great advice for anyone starting out in the business, including some easy-to-make mistakes to avoid.

Episode #103: Katie Brown

At a recent event at the Children’s Museum of the East End in the Hamptons, Tamara sat down with author and television host Katie Brown, of PBS’ The Katie Brown Workshop and Lifetime’s Next Door with Katie Brown to discusses how she created her success, what she considers when balancing motherhood and work – and exactly what she looks for when hiring commercial photographers.


Episode #102: David duChemin

Tamara met with World & Humanitarian Photographer and Author David duChemin to discuss his intriguing transition into photography by way of twelve years as a comedian in show business, following theology school. As a passionate champion for people doing work they love, David offers candid glimpses into the highs and lows of his fast-moving photography career and relays sage advice to those running small businesses.

Join in to hear some surprising information about how David accidentally fell of a wall in Italy and what it actually felt like to fall 30 feet onto concrete (after just joking about swimming in the river below). The upside of a rather grueling recovery for David has been the opportunity to finish his fourth book, Photographically Speaking, which he considers his best one yet.

And as he slowly learns how to walk again, David’s life is a testament to what he’s been saying for years: life is short. And nothing is guaranteed.

Episode #101: Hubert Davis

On June 29th, Tamara sat down with ESPN College Basketball Analyst Hubert Davis in the reDefine studio and discussed how he crafted a high-profile career out of working six months of the year – so that he can also spend six months out of the year with his family. Throughout this inspiring interview, Hubert discusses his 12 years in the NBA, which kicked off as a first round draft pick for the New York Knicks, what the NBA is like from the “inside”, how he works in time with his family when he’s on the road, his serious obsession with shoes, the technology he loves, and how his relationship with his wife has changed and strengthened over the years (“she’s the only person in the world I want to spend every day with”).
