EVERYDAY PHOTOGRAPHY (Every Day!) is a short conversational podcast that offers guidance and inspiration for non-professional photographers. Hosted by Suzanne Fritz-Hanson and Michael Rubin, we follow an enthusiastic novice (Suzanne) as she digs into her iPhone, with practical and sometimes philosophical guidance from an expert (Rubin).

All of us walk around with professional cameras in our pockets. New features automatically make our snapshots better; but camera software and filters can only do so much. A little wisdom is the missing ingredient. We’ll share tips, projects, some philosophy, and a bit of history, and in no time your pictures will go from “good enough” to “amazing.”

Rubin's pedigree swings wide: making movies with Bernardo Bertolluci; premastering CDs for the Grateful Dead; developing the “paint-your-own pottery” studio industry; years at Netflix... but through it all he’s been a passionate photographer and collector. Last summer he left his Senior Innovator role at Adobe to focus on his fine art photography. Even as he began to show and sell his work, the frustrations he experienced in printing and framing led to the creation of Neomodern in 2017.

Suzanne Fritz-Hanson is a collaborator, a creative-problem-solver, a scrappy-maker-of-things-to-happen, a practiced-question-asker, a silly-dance-choreographer and a lover of hyphens... also, she's a Senior Creative Director at an experience marketing agency. Instead of a traditional print or digital advertising, she works with brands to merge physical and digital elements: "phydigital". "I love the power of a great image that captures more than a visual record and instead can tell an entire story. I love the constraints of photography and simultaneously appreciate the technological advancements that have democratized and advanced the medium."


Our Music: Mitchel Forman

Says Rubin: “In 1991 I lived near jazz pianist Mitchel Forman. I was interested in experimenting with some home video concepts and asked him to play a song that I could videotape. I was shooting using a ginormous s-VHS camcorder, and this was the home music video I created from that session. The s-VHS tape was disintegrating even as I pulled the last bits of signal off of it. This is all that remains of the session.

In the video, Mitchel improvises a song which, eight years later, after seeing the video, added to one of his albums. It was released as "A Deeper Dream."

In the mid-90s I asked him to compose a riff that I could use in a commercial for Petroglyph, which he did, but we never ended up making any commercials. But i always liked it… that’s how this music came to EVERYDAY PHOTOGRAPHY.” Mitchel lives in Los Angeles.
