B&H Photography Podcast

The B&H Photography Podcast, a weekly conversation about all things photography. With insightful and entertaining guests, we discuss the issues most important to the contemporary photographer.

Jun 10, 2021

On this week’s episode of the B&H Photography Podcast we take a deep dive into the technical, legal, and even theoretical topics surrounding Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) and their growing place in the art and photography worlds.

To take on this subject, we welcome cryptocurrency expert and past guest of the show, Drew Hinkes. Hinkes is an attorney and professor, and in 2017 was nominated as one of Coindesk’s Most Influential People in Blockchain. He is also co-founder and General Counsel of Athena Blockchain, a firm focused on tokenized investment products. We also welcome Derek Paul Jack Boyle and Mitra Saboury, who together make up the art collaborative Meatwreck. Meatwreck have recently minted and sold NFTs associated with their photo art and we will ask Boyle and Saboury how the process worked and their general thoughts on NFTs in relation to community and their art.

In addition to clearing some of the murky waters surrounding NFT’s, cryptocurrency, and smart contracts, this episode discusses the future of intellectual property and how the blockchain is changing the way we value, store, resell and protect our copyrighted images.  Join us for this in depth and informative conversation.

Guests: Drew Hinkes, Mitra Saboury, Derek Paul Jack Boyle
