65: Katy Weaver & Creating a DIY Photography Career
65: Katy Weaver &
Creating a DIY
WELCOME TO THE EDUPUNX PODCAST
Katy Weaver is a professional photographer who created a career for herself out of sheer drive and passion for photography. Katy is also one of Craig’s eldest friends from college at Oregon State - the two met at the college newspaper and wound up working together off and on for many years. So they’re pretty familiar and use this episode to catch up a bit while exploring how Katy went from taking photos of Craig’s metal band in college to taking them of hundreds of people and couples from literally all over the world.
Katy is a prolific wedding photographer and provides a great deal of backstory and advice for doing great wedding photography, as well as what it looks like for her to give up the lens as she is currently planning her own wedding. The conversation also veers into some emotional spaces as Katy recently lost one of her best friends - but the memories, much like the photos, are what keep her going even through tragedy. This is one of the most heartfelt and loving conversations featured on this podcast and we hope that truly comes through.
- This week you got to hear tunes from the ridiculous new Holy Fawn LP, “Death Spells,” which was released last year through Holy Roar Records and Deathwish Inc in the states. The album was officially re-issued by Triple Crown Records last week so you can expect a lot more greatness from the band!
- Holy Fawn plays loud heavy pretty noises - their words - and it all creates atmospheres that envelope the listener into a world of unknown possibilities. The band allows its songs room to breathe and expand into massive soundscape that began as a mere murmur.
- On this episode, you got to hear the tracks, “Arrows,” and “Drag Me Into the Woods,” which you can access digitally through the band’s bandcamp page or on Spotify and Apple Music. There is bound to be a new vinyl pressing, but you may need to be a little patient.
