Well, it’s a one-time event for now, but it should be a ton of fun!
As Ibarionex Perello put it:
The return of the OG podcasters. Jeff Curto (The History of Photography & Camera Position), Chris Marquardt (Tips from the Top Floor), Martin Bailey (Martin Bailey Photography Podcast) and Ibarionex Perello (The Candid Frame) resurrect the Focus Ring for what could be a one-time only event.
Each has been producing their podcasts for over 7 years and were once affiliated together through the Photocast Network.
In this gathering, we have the opportunity to play catch up and discuss photography, life, podcasting and why the hell we all look so much older.
It’s an international event representing the USA, Japan and Germany, hence the early start time.
If you can come and join the fun.
The timing was chosen to make sure we get the US, Europe and Japan at the table. If you can’t make it live, the event will be available on YouTube later.
For a while, you have been able to downloaded TFTTF episodes via BitTorrent – and no, using BitTorrent is *not* illegal, I repeat, *not* illegal, unless you use it to download illegal content. And trust me: TFTTF is *very* legal indeed
Here’s the next bit of future-proofing: TFTTF has just been upgraded to receive BitCoin donations!
Producing a free offering like this podcast takes time, and running and maintaining the infrastructure costs real money that I have to earn. If you are already helping out with a regular or one-time donation, I thank you with all my heart!
If you want to financially help, there is a box in the sidebar to do just that.
Now, in addition to the existing PayPal donation system, you can now give using BitCoin. The BitCoin address for the donations is
I appreciate any amount donation. To make things simpler, if you have a BitCoin client installed on your system, the donations box in the sidebar has a button for that.
If I had to choose the one single things that I’ve done in the last five years that I have the fondest memories of, it would *have* to be the Everest Treks. The things I experienced there were so amazing on such a profound level!
We will go again in May 2014 – and we will take a group of photographers with us.
And as Jon Miller keeps saying (and rightfully so!), it’s a life-changing event. And an adventure that you’ll come home from with the most amazing photography. I will personally make sure of that!
Registration for the 2014 Everest Workshop Trek will open at 9am MDT on October 1st, 2013. (that’s 5pm German time). Space on The Team is limited.
We are planning another photographic adventure to the Himalayas and you can be a team member on the Everest Trek in the spring of 2014. This trip will take you to places like Lukla, the Thame Valley, Ranjo Pass, Gokyo Valley, Cho La Pass among others.
