This week, Dave spoke to another fellow podcaster, California based Steve Brazill, who also happens to be a fantastic music photographer and also holds down a regular radio slot as a DJ on KCAL FM. Steve also has a day job. We chat about how we build the things we love doing and fit them into our busy lives, how to keep afloat in the industry and a bunch of other stuff. Steve was a great guest and this was the first time we’d ever spoken!

About Steve Brazill
My name is Steve Brazill, also known as Razz on the air at KCAL FM and to friends. I am also a Southern California based Live Music Photographer, the former House Photographer for concerts at San Manuel Casino, and the host of the Behind the Shot Podcast. As a radio personality, emcee, and voice actor, I have been around the music and entertainment industry for many years. Combining my love of both music & photography, I capture those defining moments that happen during a live performance – on-stage or behind-the-scenes.
My images have been seen in newsprint; the Duesenberg USA Guitar catalog (Joe Walsh); in TV productions, such as MAVTV’s “Les Paul Kids Rock Free Concert Series” at the Fender Center; and recognized online in features such as in Mashable’s “16 Concert Photos That Will Bring Music To Your Ears”.
In 2014, I helped start the “On Stage” show for a local government TV channel, where I’m the host and interview people from the local music scene. That show was relaunched in 2017 as “In Studio“.
My podcast “Behind the Shot” launched in 2016 on the TWiP Network, and in 2018 I relaunched the show on my own. On each episode of Behind the Shot (behindtheshot.tv) I try to get inside the mind of a great photographer by taking a closer look at one of their shots.
I also do a presentation on Live Music Photography, having been a speaker at the PPC Expo (Professional Photographers of California), and various PPC affiliates throughout the state.
