Are wedding awards important? Are any photographic awards for that matter worth entering? Also, wedding photographers may be suffering financially during this period, but have they forgotten what the day is really about? Is there a need for an X-T5, what is left to improve upon? How can you motivate yourself day to day photographically? This week’s book of the week is John Chillingworth’s Picture Post Photographer and our guest is a Ian Treherne, a photographer who is 5% sighted.
Today, the new 18mm lens, who is it for? Have you made a business bible and if you haven’t why you should. Kev turns out to be a royal photographer, are iPhone 12 shots good enough for large format printing? Our guest this week is Jennifer McCord and we think she has one of the best photography jobs in the world. The show today is brought to you with Sprout Studio.
Kev and Neale enter lockdown in their remote locations once again, Kev in deepest darkest Wiltshire and Neale from his bunker in Berkshire. They talk printing and framing; the pros and cons of doing your own. Also, backup and getting brutal with your picture culling in Photo Mechanic, who is the X-S10 aimed at, what’s it for? Day in the Life sessions; how to market them, what they are! The book of the week is a Fleet Street memory lane marvel and photojournalist Edmond Terakopian talks about a special auction of prints for Médecins Sans Frontières.
This week the questions are certainly eclectic; how has photography changed you as a person, do you regret becoming a full time photographer, are you making pictures for YOU or for Instagram, if you could only have one camera/one lens, what would it be, if your camera could speak, what would it say, is it possible to be a photographer and videographer at the same time on the same job? We also talk about the perfect zoom to replace primes and speak with fashion and portrait photographer Jamie Stoker.
Kev and Neale reconsider retraining as beauticians and travel agents for at least one minute, book of the week from Nick Danziger, we talk back ups, business postponements, a Fujifilm wedding video kit list, neg cleaning, portrait advice, monitors, why are custom settings slowing my camera down, can we make the next X100 smaller still and do the boys miss full frame sensors?
