The Creative South Podcast focuses on the “people” behind the design. The best way for us to do that is to talk to people and listen to them share their stories. Not necessarily the stories you hear from the stage, but ones you get when you actually have a conversation with someone. We want to have conversations not only with the presenters and people hosting workshops, but the vendors and attendees. We also want to talk to other creative people, not just the designers, illustrators, and photographers, but the developers, writers, musicians, comedians, chefs and anyone else that uses their creative talent. It's not about being from the South, that's just where we live!

Welcome to the Creative South Podcast, I’m your host Jason Frostholm. My guest this week is Alicja Colon. Alicja is a commercial lifestyle product photographer, based out of Savannah, GA working at Focus Lab. We talk about studying graphic design in college, and transitioning from designer to wedding photographer to a project manager and then finally into her current career. We also discuss how working with Stocksy United taught her how to better craft a story. And, when you get done listening to Alicja here go listen to her podcast Manual Focus, where she does short segments about the business of photography, all right after this.
We’re taking the Creative South podcast on the road this summer. In July, we’ll be heading to Chicago to attend Podcast Movement, a conference dedicated to— podcasting. And then in August, the podcast is heading to WMC Fest in Cleveland Ohio, to record a live episode and check out what Cleveland has to offer with some of our Creative South Family. Here’s the thing, all of this can get a bit pricey — so — we’re looking for sponsors. If you want to sponsor the Creative South Podcast, to help keep the lights on and to keep us from OD’ing on Top Ramen shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or hit us up on Twitter @CreativeSoPod.
