Welcome to episode 11!  This podcast is all about nerding out with fellow creators on camera gear, travelling, and all that stuff we creatives are obsessed with. In this episode Andrew James takes over the mic.  Andrew first caught my attention with the quality of the tutorials he creates on YouTube.  On top of that he has a magnetic personality that keeps you coming back to watch.  What’s crazy is how young he is.  I keep having to remind myself this is a kid just coming out of high school and he’s already creating at high level.  What this guy will be coming out with 5, 10, 15 years from now is going to blow you away.  Definitely worth a listen even if it’s just to hear the DSLR story.  Absolutely loved talking with Andrew.
