  • Marco invites Bill Wadman as a guest for this Camera and Inspiration episode. Bill is an amazing portrait photographer from Brooklyn, NY. His images have been seen on the covers and pages of major publications throughout the world. He considers himself notoriously obsessive and rarely satisfied. His Instagram bio contains the words: Take Portrait. Obsess. Repeat. And he is the co-host of the very popular creativity podcast “On Taking Picture.”


  • Bill picks this month inspirational photographer: Stéphane Lavoué. He is a French portrait photographer who was born in 1976. He has a very honest, artistic, and harsh portrait style. Please check out his work on his website:


  • In the main part of this episode, Marco and Bill discuss Bill’s 365 portrait project. Why did he start it? How does he organize it? How has it benefited him? What are the troubles that he encountered in his project and how does he deal with them? What would he recommend to our listeners if they want to start a long time photo project?


  • Marco’s inspirational photo book of the month is called: “Photography by the Letter” - by Jeffery Saddoris.
