In our latest episode, we are talking with Hollywood photography icon, George Rose. George's legendary photos have graced the pages of the Los Angeles Times, Rolling Stone, USA Today, Newsweek and many other publications. Hear his stories about being the man behind the lens for some of the most prolific Hollywood events and productions.
From 1982 to 1996, George was working the sidelines of the San Francisco 49ers and Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders games as a photographer for the National Football League. Thousands of his images have been published in officially sanctioned NFL books, calendars, trading cards and game programs.
In 1987, George won a World Press Photo Award for news, and was named California “Newspaper Photographer of the Year” in 1976 by the University of Missouri, School of Journalism. The Los Angeles Times twice nominated him (1979 and 1980) for a Pulitzer Prize.
He has lived in the Santa Ynez Valley since 2015 and much of his time is devoted to documenting the natural environment of the county as well as top vineyard estates up and down the coast of California. He is also a contributing photographer with Getty Images.

Plus some box office news and some retellings of Daniel's days at The World Famous Jungle Cruise in anticipation of the new movie.
