I am the executive producer and co-host of a new TV that premieres on the Georgia PBS affiliate (GPB) this spring. It is a highly unique show and I am very proud of what I have created along with my co-host Jason.
View Finders chronicles the adventures of two photographers who are in search of beautiful locations to photograph. Along the way they talk to experts about what makes each location so unique and so special, providing an educational aspect to the show. However it is the adventures and the visuals that will draw the audience in, with stunning footage of the locations when the light is the very best. The show is fun, upbeat, laid back, and completely unscripted. The dynamic between the two hosts is full of humor and good natured conversation, and their adventures take them on hiking trails, in canoes, out on boats, and throughout some truly stunning landscapes. The show features music from a wide range of up-and-coming Georgia artists, and the hosts also educate the audience about how they can use their phones to take better photos. Season two is already in production and promises to be even bigger, with iconic locations like the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Blue Ridge Parkway. The broad appeal of adventure, scenery, photography, music, and education helps the show connect to a wide demographic, and there is simply nothing else like it on TV today.
We think there is a broad audience for this type of content, as we will talk about the importance of light and compositions when it comes to photography. These are elements that can be used by everyone who want to improve their photographs, even if it is just with a smartphone.
Our goal is to bring this show to Georgia first, but then syndicate it both to a regional and national audience. Our adventures will begin in Georgia, but will expand into other locations that are also rich with beauty and education. We cannot wait to share these episodes with you!
