    Tonight Terry Banet and I had the chance to talk with Bob D'Amico, also known here at as Landshark.

    Bob is an entertainment photographer for ABC and Disney, and if you check out his website at, you'll be sure to recognize his amazing work.

    It was a lot of fun getting to know Bob better and hope others enjoy the podcast as much as we enjoyed making it!

    Great podcast and I really can relate to the motivational strain of the PAD challenge.

    you should be able to figure it out...
    Very enjoyable look inside the professional end which which I'm not at all familiar and the amateur end, with which I am.

    Hey Bob, in your time doing LA celebrity type work, have you ever crossed paths with Joel Grimes? He seems to do some of that type of work, although I don't know how similar what you do may be. I went to high school and took photo classes with Joel and he made a very nice career of it.

    Not only very interesting content, but getting to know a bit about the people hiding behind strange "screen names" on the forum is great. Thank you all.

    Very nice of you to call it a soundtrack! That was just me playing around with an old sampler/sequencer :redface:. When I get some time, I plan to look around for some better intro music to license :smile:.

    Love this pod-cast - both informative and entertaining. Great insight into Bob, so refreshing to hear from a pro who's reached the top of the game, with a focus on image-making, and setting some home truths about fetishism for gear. :2thumbs: So glad to not get bogged down with gear-head chatter! More like this please Amin!!!

    Agreed, let's have more talk about photography and less about the gear. Interesting to get to know more about the people on this forum.
