You may have seen his work and not even realized it, as he shoots for many of your favorite movies, TV shows, actors and musicians. Join us this week to hear our very special guest, Brian Bowen Smith, tell us about his own personal journey. What began as a difficult childhood in upstate New York, Brian's life has taken various turns and today, he brings all of his experience and perspective to his craft. Friends, colleagues and celebrity subjects all say that he has a very innate sense of the people he shoots, and is often able to capture them in a way that feels authentically "them."

In this week's episode we learn how his desire to be seen as he was growing up without very many opportunities affected his ability to "see" things through his own lens and bring that unique perspective to his work. He also takes us through his process for his most recent photography book BBS Drivebys, that chronicles his journey across 11,000 miles in the height of Covid shutdown. Click here for more information on where you can find the book: and please follow him on Instagram @brianbowensmith!

And as an added bonus, hear Ginger talk about her "Manifestation Birthday Cake" collaboration with @LACustomCakes! You won't believe what Michael Carney (owner & founder) did to celebrate her "undisclosed age" birthday!!! We'll never tell.......
