In our second episode Aaron James and Andrew Dickson welcome globe-trotting, commercial photographer Marcus Smith to the Mt. Freelance podcast. Marcus Smith is a freelance photographer who has shot for the ESPN Body Issue, and created campaigns for Nike and Jordan Brand working with athletes like Kobe Bryant and LeBron James and even worked with Aaron on an adidas project with Damian Lillard. Marcus went to college for business, but discovered his passion for graphic design and photography creating album covers and fliers for musicians. But it was a personal project documenting a high school basketball team for a season that lead to his incredible career. In his interview Marcus shares his journey, taking us through the evolution of his personal project, Crew Love, and touching on some of his favorite projects. It’s a must listen for anyone thinking about pursuing their own personal project and looking for ideas on how to support each other as freelancers. What’s Mt. Freelance? It’s the online course and community that helps freelancers in the creative industry get the work they really want, charge what they are worth and build the freelance business they dream of. Co-founders Aaron and Andrew end each episode by answering a listener question about freelance. The Mt. Freelance podcast is hand-crafted by the producers, mixers and sound designers of Digital One, right here in Portland Oregon, and sponsored by Stumptown Coffee.
