Photos, Videos & a bit about Law Abiding Biker (LAB) Podcast and Media…..
We continue to grow due to the support of our audience and a lot of hard work. In early 2015 we moved out of the smaller office, because we outgrew it rather quickly. We moved the media studio up into the bonus room. Of course, other media equipment has been added to continue providing great content. A ton of filming is also conducted in the Law Abiding Biker garage and it too has been a bit transformed.
This is the Law Abiding Biker Media Studio today! In time I was able to afford a laptop, some extra monitors, a flat screen TV, a frame rack, & other electronic equipment to make even better sounding podcasts & better videos. I can now be much more efficient at creating, editing, and distributing content. Of course I finally painted the studio and was very pleased. I arranged the studio, so I can be most efficient with the available space. I finally feel organized and like I have a system in place for things now. I made some "on air" lights, both for inside the studio and outside of the studio. I am slowly decorating the studio, which will go on for some time. I will add more pictures as things change slightly. But, for the most part I feel it is complete. I still want to move forward and there is some equipment I am looking at purchasing in the future if it works out. I want to keep moving forward with things!
I was able to finally afford (not really) a proper L shaped professional desk. I took everything out of the Law Abiding Biker (LAB) Podcasting Media Studio and started from scratch. This new desk is perfect for the limited space in the studio that I have. I now have room to work and move around, along with storage for things. It is much less cluttered and professional. I can now look at my co-hosts when talking to them during recordings and they can look at me and each other. My co-hosts are much less cramped and so am I. I am very pleased with the way the studio has taken shape. I still want to do a few more things and also paint the studio. All in good time..........
After I was able to afford (not really) some proper and professional grade podcasting equipment, I got all set up in my small office, which became the LAB Podcast Media Studio. The studio worked, but was not ideal the way it was originally set up. The guys that co-host the podcast with me are awesome and never complained. The way the studio was set up, I was unable to really look at them when talking into the microphone. Nor, could they look at each other when talking in the microphone. We had to try to look out of the corner of our eyes at each other or turn our heads, while making certain we were talking into the microphones during a recording. I really needed a new desk and set up for my podcasting equipment to better utilize the space in my office.
These are pictures of my very humble beginnings into the world of podcasting and media. I recorded LAB Podcast episodes 1, 2, & 3 by myself in my daughters closet with very minimal equipment, just to get started with things. I just wanted to get a few episodes out there and test the waters. I only had a condenser microphone and had to use a small space with lots of fabric to cut down on echo. That is why I picked my daughter's closet. It was very hot and stuffy, but it was the best I could come up with at the time. I then moved to my office with the same humble equipment and tried to put a blanket over me and the computer armoire, but it didn't work as well. There was still some echo, but it was not quite as stuffy at least. I was blessed by God after only a few prayers to sale something I had been trying to sale for a year. I sold that item quickly and was able to purchase more professional podcasting and media equipment! Of course I moved all that equipment right into my small office, which I called my official studio.
This was my 2005 Harley Davidson Wide Glide (88 cu in) that I tricked out over several years. Of course, I did all the work myself. It was a great bike, but I eventually let it go in pursuit of much longer distance riding. I wish I could have afforded to keep this bike, just to have around for shorter runs. I put many miles on this bike and was younger, so I still rode pretty far on it............
