Canon USA has launched its new podcast, Canon Unscripted, and it's off to a strong start in the company of renowned portrait photographer Peter Hurley – who shares some fascinating insight on his early career, including his struggles with the technical side of photography.

Filmed for YouTube, Hurley and technical specialist for Canon, Mason Higa, can be seen sitting almost uncomfortably close, in leather armchairs against a blank background, with a splash of color from the red circular rugs on the floor.
