Episode 58: Jason Groupp

October 16, 2008

jasong.jpgJason Groupp LOVES him some New York. (And yes, his name is spelled correctly. There are two p’s). So, it was only fitting that our re-scheduled interview was set on September 11. Jason recounts where he was that fateful day the “Twin Towers” fell. His story about seeing the first tower fall and the tidal wave of dust and debris on the tails of people running for their lives will give you goose bumps. How he struggled as a photographer between capturing what was obviously a world-changing event, and being respectful to the men and women working hard to save the lives of those trapped. Speaking of which, he shares the heart-felt story of how he lost one of his best friends, Fireman Bob. We also get to learn some interesting trivia bout the city the never sleeps. Like, did you know (according to Jason) that after the World Trade Center was built, New Yorkers hated it. They felt it messed up their iconic skyline (how ironic is that). I learned that SoHo means south of Houston (I think that’s what he said). Oh well, you’ll just have to listen to find out. Just in time for PhotoPlus Expo next week, listen to this great interview and get your New York fix. (Speaking of PPE, Jason also tells us the origin of his annual party.)

Today’s outro is the sweet, swingin’ sounds of “Tater City” by Glenn Shambroom, courtesy of Triple Scoop Music.
