When did you start calling yourself a photographer? In our first episode, we discuss our beginnings, how we got into photography and how over time our goals evolved. We also discuss our first paid gigs, naming our photography businesses and how attending college helps us grow as photographers.

Restaurant of

the Week

 

Hank’s

5811 Berkman Dr. Austin, TX 78723

Light & bright coffee shop & cafe serving casual American fare all day with patio & drive-through.

I love Hank’s. The coffee and food is incredible! The one fault with this place is the staffs attitudes. Every time I go, the coffee shop staff seems as if I’m inconveniencing them with my order or just my presence. 

I will be going back but I hope this is addressed before I go back!
