Camera Dads is a conversation between men about photography and fatherhood. We are two fathers who enjoy photography talk about the excitement, opportunities, and challenges that come from raising children while maintaining an interest in taking photos. Each episode will begin with a discussion of what we have been photographing, new things we have been trying, or techniques we have been experimenting with since the last episode. After that we will explore a photography topic in greater detail by explaining it, offering our opinions, and examining it from various angles. Camera Dads is not a news or technology show, and neither is it a primary source for current events or cutting-edge journalism. It would be better to think of it as a monthly meeting of the minds at a local coffee shop for dads to discuss their photographic hobbies.
