This week we chat about business, shooting alone, street law plus San Francisco wedding and portrait photographer Reggie Ballasteros talks about his move from the Nikon D750 to FujiFilm X-T3, how it’s changed his photography and why he made the swap.
All manner of subjects today as we co-present once more with a live studio guest, this time; longtime friend and peer Allister Freeman.
Known as one of the leading documentary shooters in the UK, Al also introduces us to personal projects and why they’re important.
Your questions and more Simplr straps to give away. Join us on The FujiCast.
We recently ran a competition to co-present The FujiCast, turn the tables and ask any questions of the hosts! Today is that show. We welcome Ralu Chase, a London based family photographer who started her photography business in Boston America and Romania!
Check out Ralu’s website as we learn a little more about Kevin and Neale as photographers.

This week’s episode asks; do you need all the gear you currently have?
Gear Acquisition Syndrome is a real thing and most of us have it!
Also, we answer your questions about Fujifilm kit and photo experiences whilst tackling the question of how to handle guests who’ve had too much to drink at events and weddings.
There are more Simplr straps to give away for the best questions received each week plus we hear from the incredible photojournalist behind Small Town Inertia; Jim Mortram.

Sean Tucker, rising YouTuber in the photo community is our guest this week on The FujiCast. Your questions as always and Kevin and Neale deal with how to tackle the more negative side of social media.
