Kevin Kubota Part 1 / Denis and Joe Q & A Bonus

October 27, 2008

Would you believe that Kevin Kubota, an American Photo Top 10 Wedding Photographer and creator of Kubota’s Image Tools (one of the most commonly used action sets in the industry), once peddled shoes at Nordstrom? And when he lost that job, he turned to multi-level marketing? Well, if you watch this episode, you’ll learn those details and a whole lot more. Like what it was like for him growing up half-caucasian and half-Japanese in Hawaii (his “kind” were referred to as a hapa-Haulis, Hauli being slang for white boy). Luckily, being part Asian saved him from getting his butt kicked on the annual “Kill Hauli Day.” And wait till you hear the story of how he first got into photography. Beyond business and branding. Beyond talent and technique. These are personal interviews to inspire and entertain.

Below is a bonus episode from the Q & A session with Denis Reggie and Joe Buissink. They answer the question “Where do you think photography can go from here?” Denis pulls no punches in letting his true feelings be known. (Seems only fitting to have this episode side by side an interview with one of the most prolifiic Photoshop action producers in the world. 🙂
