Podcast 13 – Joseph Cowlishaw Interview

This week on the podcast, I was joined by our very good friend Joseph Cowlishaw!

I’ve been a fan of Joe’s work for years, and have been lucky to get to know him a bit more through our Google+ community, where he’s recently become a moderator and is hosting this month’s photo contest. Joe lives in Utah with his wife and five children, and creates playable ocarinas out of polymer clay called Wowflutes.

The Interview

As someone who grew up in the desert, I wanted to ask Joe all about how he uses the warm tones and unique landscape to his advantage. We also talked about vintage lenses, the fun LEGO characters he’s created for his photos, the online toy photography community, and more! The episode is live now, so download it from your favorite podcast app or listen right here on the blog!

    Thanks for the great interview Joseph and James. The flute music put a great angle on the interview and gave us a deeper insight into Joseph’s dedication and artistic talent.

    Such a great interview. Scrolling through Joe’s Instagram to look at photos that were talked about, like the Knight Rider one, was ace to check them out and hear the stories behind then!

    Thanks Joe and James. Another Monday morning at work made bearable with a great listen!

    • Thanks Janan! I sure do enjoy my hobbies. Making flutes has taken kind of a backseat as I put more time into toy photography. The Flute making is fun but after making 50,000 of them it gets a bit monotonous. 🙂
