DCP 7: Ron Dawson - Dare Dreamer Media


A couple of months ago I came across a great book for video professionals: Refocus: Cutting-Edge Strategies to Evolve Your Video Business, by husband and wife dynamic duo Ron and Tasra Dawson. They are among the most dynamic and positive people you will find in the filmmaking and photography business. After reading Refocus and viewing him on Zacuto's Filmfellas (Cast 5 "The Epic Wedding"), I knew I had to have him appear as a guest. Conversing with Ron on my photography and filmmaking podcast was both a pleasure and privilege. Ron is a veteran podcaster - including FStop Beyond (photography podcast) and Crossing the 180 (filmmaking podcast) - so I felt a bit intimidated at first. But I had nothing to fear. Ron was truly a gracious and patient guest.

In this episode, Ron talks about his love for filmmaking - especially for worthy causes. He talks about how the Canon 5D Mark II has rekindled his love for filmmaking and how he used it in his recent work for a Pictage video series. Ron talks enthusiastically about his wife Tasra's Teen Identity project. Ron - who is very prolific in his work - opens up and candidly discusses balancing family and work. It was an amazing conversation and I'm grateful to Ron for taking time out from his busy schedule to talk with me. I hope you will find his conversation as inspiring as I did.
