We have a very special guest this week, one that’s taken some planning but so happy it worked out! Austin Kleon is the New York Times bestselling author of three illustrated books with his fourth, Keep Going! released on April 2nd. Austin describes himself as “a writer who draws. I make art with words and books with pictures” but he’s more than that, he’s funny, intelligent, inspirational and down to earth. We really enjoyed our chat, go and buy his books!!

This week we interview a man who, without his generosity, we would not be making this podcast. Zack was instrumental in Glyn following the path he did in 2009 which eventually led to us meeting in 2010. Catching up with Zack 10 years on he opens up about life as a photographer and reveals the truth about the real world of a working photographer and some harsh truths we all experience, how to get out of that funk and keep going. It’s one of our most honest and revealing interviews.
