Ep98: Zack Smith On Professional Photography, Rotary Downs & Crediting The Culture
New Orleans renowned photographer Zack Smith joins the show and we get into the content rights gap between still photographers and videographers, social media’s impact on rights and value, and the nuances of providing professional creative services as a career. Zack talks about his start in photography in the live music space, which became what he was primarily known for until the last few years.
Drummer for New Orleans rock band Rotary Downs, Zack recalls the band’s album that they began recording before Katrina and completed after the storm, plus the band’s apex in the handful of years after the album's release.
Finally, Zack details his upcoming “New Orleans Photography Experience” workshop, June 7 -11 (https://www.zacksmith.com/zack-smith-photography-workshops-new-orleans/) and espouses the importance of ‘crediting the culture’. As always, liner notes from producer Spence everybody...
