Join our hosts, Troy Miller and Steve Brazill, as they talk with Darren McBurnett—retired Navy SEAL, accomplished speaker, and accomplished photographer—about his incredible journey as a Navy SEAL/Photographer. He’ll share his philosophies on how to:

  • Never let emotion get in the way
  • Never panic
  • Plan your shoot, shoot your plan
  • If it’s stupid but it works, then it’s not stupid
