Brittney (Mom / barista / photographer) joins Ben this week to talk about a word that brings her much joy. The two hosts discuss photography past, present, and future. Subjects include: the art of photography, personal connections to photos, baby books, camera technology, Purikura (photo booths), and how we will “record” our memories in the future. Then it’s on to video games. Brittney talks about the ailment that caused her to lose her horses in Minecraft. Ben talks about the games Pokemon Snap, Beyond Good and Evil, Dead Rising, The Bradwell Conspiracy, and NUTS. If you live in Tucson and need a photographer, take a peek at a sampling of Brittney’s (@bjunephotography) portfolio on Instagram!
