Barbara Potter lists her top 4 passions on her website as Photography, Music, Relationships, and Travel. From the moment she and the director connected, it was obvious that she was perfect for this project.
“For as long as I can remember, I have been a shutter bug. My first camera I bought was a little toy-like spy camera that was the size of a matchbox. It had little rolls of film and was a lot of fun to use. Thinking back now, it was probably where my love for candid shots was born! ”
Barbara and her singer-songwriter husband, Ben Potter, split their time between Seattle and Nashville.

After a lifetime of loving films, he decided seven years ago to take a leap into the unknown of freelancing. Maurice has since travelled the world shooting primarily in the realms of documentaries, fashion, and music.

He has had several songs in a Cohen Brothers movie and has written the music for a award winning digital children’s Book called Samuel T. Moore of Corte Magore. He also has a local TV show called the Robby Armstrong Show that has won the West Coast Wave Award for his show with Nico Bolas. Along with his many accomplishments and write ups he has been a family man with his wife and 4 children.

After reaching out to Robby and discussing his previous voice over work, and his own thoughts on music venues, there was another perfect fit for the show.
