I love the smell of a new episode in the morning. Our 11th installment kicks off with a good ol’, wholesome story of a newlywed couple whose NSFW stunt ruined wedding plans for a bunch of other couples. It’s another example of why we can’t have nice things (check out Episode 005 for more on that). Brian and Sharky clearly have their thoughts on the matter and, as you’d expect, they weren’t afraid to lay it out. In an effort to calm things down, Sharky changes the subject to remind Brian about how he failed at implementing a true mobile photography strategy on his recent trip to Grand Teton National Park. Oh, and Brian has a retraction to issue. It’s hunting season for Brian, we guess! All that and a new “What’s On Your Gear Shelf?” round out this week’s episode.

Show Notes

  • A newlywed couple figured it’d be all good if they took a lewd photo of themselves with the religiously devout Greek island of Rhodes in the background and, well, the locals didn’t take too kindly. [NSFW via DIYPhotography]
  • The hosts notice that this is clearly a trend with other similarly offensive incidents occurring at other historic and culturally sensitive areas [NSFW Example 01 and NSFW Example 02 both via DIYPhotography]
  • Sensing that Brian needed a pick-me-up, Sharky thought it’d be a good idea to see how successful Brian was with his mobile photo strategy during a recent road trip. (Spoiler: he failed completely) [Listen to Episode 006 for more context]
  • After Brian’s wife, Nicolesy, listened to Episode 009, she had a different account of their encounter with a photographer at the historic barns on Mormon Row in Grand Teton National Park. She made Brian issue a retraction and, like a good and fearful husband, he does as he’s told.
