It’s been said that a picture is worth a thousand words, with Photo Talk Radio NW it is the words that lead to thousands of better pictures.
“Photography is extremely popular right now. People love photography, but are frustrated with their fancy cameras and how to take better photographs. We improve our listeners lives by giving them the answers they are looking for to take better pictures,” said Bruce Hudson, who co-hosts the weekly program with his son, Josh Hudson.
Besides hosting the one-hour weekly radio show that airs every Saturday from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m., the Hudsons are the owners of Hudson’s Portrait Design and the popular Hudson’s Photo Workshops, recently named Seattle’s Best Photo Class. They have a combined 45 years of experience in the world of professional photography as well as speaking, teaching, and education.
Each week their show highlights local, regional, and nationally known photo enthusiasts, new equipment reviews, photo meet-up groups, schools, and workshops. In addition to being in the prime-time slot of Saturdays at 4 p.m., Photo Talk Radio NW is also a podcast and is streamed live via Facebook. They even feature guest’s images via an interactive gallery online during the show.
I guess you can say that for Bruce, he was bitten by the photography bug early on in life.
“What started out as a hobby and passion in high school, then became a part time way to make money when I was in college and while I was teaching from 1978 to 1982. In the summer of 1982, we opened our first full-time photography studio and never looked back. Some 35 years later, I still love waking up each day to create memories and heirlooms for my clients,” he said.
Bruce is 35-year veteran professional photographer Bruce Hudson holds the degrees of Master Photographer and Photographic Craftsman from the Professional Photographers of America. He is also a member of the prestigious Camera Craftsman of America group, home to some of the most elite professional photographers and industry leaders in the world.
For his part, Josh Hudson runs the day-to-day operations for the photographic brands operated under Hudson’s Portrait Design just south of Seattle. He also is co-host of the popular web TV shows Photo Entrepreneur TV and My Marketing Clicks filmed out of Chicago.
Together, along with the help of Amy McGann and Carla Conrad, they set out each week to out to inform and entertain.
“Each week our goal is to showcase Photo Enthusiasts that have a passion for photography. The guests are professionals, amateurs, and manufacturers in the photographic industry. In addition, our broadcast team is very knowledgeable and entertaining,” said Bruce.
Amy, dubbed Photoshop Goddess, is a busy mom of three and is the Production Specialist for Hudson’s Portrait Design and Photoshop Instructor at Hudson’s Photo Workshops. Day to day she is in charge of designing custom wedding, family, baby, and high school senior albums, and composite images.
Carla, the show’s Executive Producer, also has a unique perspective as she helps marry a radio show about images with that of a fast-paced media world. Her father was an avid amateur photographer while serving as a test pilot for the US Air force, and Carla inherited his creative and technical passions. She took that passion and combined it with her love for communication. She has worked in broadcast production in the Puget Sound at KCPQ, KSTW and was News Graphic Producer for KIRO-TV.
Photography has been around for quite some time, but even still people have a fascination with taking better photos. This is exactly where Photo Talk Radio NW comes into play.
“The most common question we hear is how can I take as good shot with my camera as I do with my iPhone?,” said Bruce.
