Petra Cross is an amazing photographer who does fantastic still photography as well as stop motion, time lapse and video work. Below are Part 1 and Part 2 of our show from last night. We had to split the show into two parts because of audio issues. In the first part we talk about various Google+ photography related news. In the second part we interview Petra. Check them out!

Lotus Carroll and I had an AMAZING time shooting abandoned stuff ahead of the auto show this past weekend in Detroit with Ed Serecky.
Ed Serecky, aka petparazzi on Flickr (we’re working on getting him on G+) made a super cool 1:29 video of some of the places we got into. An awesome video of urban exploration photography in action Detroit style.
Lotus Carroll and I had an AWESOME time this past Wednesday night interviewing Colby Brown on Photo Talk Plus Episode 5. Colby talked about all of the great places over the world he’s travelled to shoot (and where he’s headed this coming year), his project The Giving Lens, life as a new father, his upcoming book with Peachpit on Google+ for photographers and more. Colby also shares some of his great images and talks about the stories behind them.
Last night we recorded a very special episode of Photo Talk Plus with Trey Ratcliff. Thank you to Trey who offered such a heartfelt candid personal interview about both him and his work. Trey is a very humble individual who spends so much more time promoting other photographers than his own art and work. He’s given so much to the Google+ Community and I enjoyed having an opportunity to really focus more directly on him as a person and an artist.
If you missed last night’s show, I really hope you’ll take some time to watch this episode and get to know a little bit more about Trey. Trey is a good friend and this was one of my favorite hangouts I’ve done on Google+ yet.
Thanks also to Keith for broadcasting our show as usual on the Vidcast Network and thanks to everyone who participated in the chat room while we broadcasted. You are the community and are the ones that make Google+ such a great place for photographers.
A special thank you also to our show sponsors Drobo and SmugMug
Please join Lotus Carroll and myself tonight live for an interview with our very own Trey Ratcliff!!! Tonight’s broadcast will be LIVE at the Vidcast Network and LIVE on my Google+ stream with the new Hangouts On Air feature. Learn more about Trey’s unique photography, outlook on life, and how he has been able to build one of the most successful photography businesses on the planet today with Stuck In Customs.
In addition to tonight’s interview with Trey Ratcliff we’ll also discuss some of the top Google+ photography related stories of the past week including the upcoming Google+ Photography Book being curated by Ivan Makarov as well as the upcoming Google+ Scavenger Hunt curated by Chrysta Rae. We’ll also take questions from the chat room directly for Trey so come prepared to learn more about what makes Trey tick.
Tonight our very special guest will be none other than +Karen Hutton (pictured below with Lotus). Karen is an amazing photographer with mad processing skills who will process one of her photos live online tonight in addition to the interview.
We’re going to broadcast tonight’s episode of Photo Talk Plus in two places — right here in my Google+ Stream with the new On Air Hangouts, as well as on the Vidcast Network with +Keith Barretthttp://vidcastnetwork.com.
We’ll have recordings after the show available on both Vidcast as well as Youtube going forward.
I had a great time a few weeks ago giving a talk about my photography as part of the @Google talk series down at the Mountain View Campus. During the hour long conversation I talked about my own approach to photography, how I’ve integrated it into my life, how I’m able to produce the volume of photographs I do while having a day job and family, my project to publish 1,000,000 photos before I die and my project to photograph the 100 largest American cities.
I also comment on the photo sharing space, Flickr, Google+, etc. and answer questions at the end.
Thanks so much to +Brian Rose for having me down to Google.
We had a fantastic time talking to NASA Astronaut Ron Garan on Episode 2 of Photo Talk Plus. He shared his experiences of photographing from space with us, and it was truly inspiring and educating. Thanks so much to our panelists Catherine Hall, Ricardo Lagos, and Sandra Parlow for adding to the conversation.
