DSCF2205Over the first six months of this family photography podcast, many of my guests talked about their 365 projects. I did one in 2010. When I knew a guest had done a 365, I asked about it. All the talk about 365 projects inspired me to start another one. You are invited to start one too.

Today I’m sharing a conversation with one of my favorite people in the world: my brother Joe. Six years ago, my brother Joe started a 365 project. A few days into it, he called me and we talked about it. When I got off the phone, I was doing a 365 project too.

This episode is about that year of photos.

Connections made during Joe’s 365 led to his work on the feature film Bokeh.

Joe’s Steadicam Reel:

The year we did our 365 projects, Joe made this film while our family was vacationing at the ocean.

    Jenny, I just listened to this show. I am currently doing a picture a week with my wife and 2 children. During the show you guys talked about making the editing, copying, and storing easier. I just got 2 portable drives to switch out for backup and I’m not sure what a good software solution is to copy backups. Any good suggestions?

    • Joe mentioned ShotPut Pro. It’s probably more than you need. On an earlier episode about back up (#27 with Rob Lim), he talked about Chronosync.

      Hope that helps. Have fun with your project!

      On the Mac system, Carbon Copy Cloner can be set up to clone your entire drive every day.

    Just finished listening to this episode. Really enjoyed it! I think you so perfectly captured the endless dilemma that photographers face – how to balance great photos with enjoying life. And the answer that I’m accepting is that it is a dilemma and that there is no answer or solution. Like Joe said, his thorough documentation of his 365 year means he remembers it better than other years – but did he enjoy it less?

    • I’m glad you liked the show – and – I’m with you: there’s no answer. Before talking to Joe for the show, I didn’t know how he really felt! It was fun to have an excuse to have the conversation.
