Month: October 2020
In episode twenty nine we’re honoring Breast Cancer Awareness month with underwater photographer Erena Shimoda.
Erena works with cancer and trauma survivors to give them an experience like no other, and a way to help them heal emotionally through the therapeutic immersion. Erena raised money to fund her work, donating almost half of it to charity and the rest to photograph 13 cancer survivors.
We talk about her approach to this work, and how her own trauma helps her guide others through the process.
In episode twenty eight host Brett Stanley is talking with underwater wildlife cinematographer Jeff Hester. Jeff is responsible for some of the footage seen in shows like Blue Planet, Deadliest Catch, and those amazing Apple TV screensavers.
We chat about how he went from a marine biology degree to shooting Orcas for Netflix, sitting underwater for 7 hours at a time, and what it’s like not seeing the results of your work for years after it was shot.
