Today, some useful hints for video conferencing with prospective clients, back button focusing, plus designing a new Wordpress website. Later this week on Friday we’ll be having a website special. So whether it’s a professional shop window or hobbyist site to show off your fantastic photography, if you need advice, contact us by email with your questions in time for a special episode later this week: [email protected]
Today’s show is about lockdown projects and we visit and revisit in one case, listeners and friends of the show from north, east, south and west to hear about what they’ve seen, recorded and photographed over the last few months. We also talk about blogs and if they’re still important for your business.
What is that perfect lens if you were cast away on a desert island with one piece of glass to document your travels? We talk Platon, books, even posing chairs and the perfect wedding band. It’s an eclectic episode today.
Today on the show, DPI. What does it mean and how important is it? Do I choose 72 or 300? Help? What happens if an over zealous creative director adds unreal instagram filters to your photographic work? Kev’s on a ’no booze’ week, how is it going? And when do you know if you’re ready to start charging people money for your photography? Maybe it’s time to think about turning pro? There’s also the results to last Wednesday’s Daily Photo Challenge and the book of the week comes from Angus O’Callaghan.
It’s Tech Free Tuesday – ask what you like of the boys photographically or otherwise! Kevin has a thing or two to say about the training and workshop industry. Are there good events to attend? Are there too many? Are the facilitators experienced enough? Also, is that look of concentration grumpy, or a photographer’s ‘resting face.’ Our favourites from last Monday’s Daily Photo Challenge and a new competition hits the show; the Daily Caption Competition.
Your questions answered from the mail bag and one of those is all about a new cinema camera to complete the X series line. Is it on the horizon and what could it have? Also today, school photography during lockdown and the new caption competition launched.
Our Sunday guest is established commercial shooter Stuart Bingham, who has not just bought and worn the teeshirt, but shot it too. He talks about the tentacle like nature of commercial work where one commission can lead to so many others. ALSO, how to shoot Day in the Life sessions with Kev. Remember to keep sending your tech and non tech photography questions in so that we can chat about your passions and businesses.
It’s Saturday so we have a guest on the daily show. A gentle weekend meander with Donna Svennevik, a New York based photographer who has photographed presidents, gang leaders and showbiz personalities. Equally Donna is a personal project story maker, so we touch on the subject of making the everyday your canvas.
Also today, vintage lenses, how long SHOULD my camera batteries last, the Daily Photo Challenge and finding extraordinary in the ordinary on the street.
One hundred shows! And still climbing. The weekly podcast about photography went daily as lockdown stopped our commercial photographic activity and so today we’ve reached, earlier than planned, one hundred episodes. Today a special, a different kind of show from the usual photographic Q&A. We talk GRATITUDE and get personal. Also today NEWS… the launch of the NEW website.
Today, black and white presets, a new Daily Photo Challenge, Kev’s affordable photography book you should buy when it’s safe to start spending money again, how will we eat at weddings wearing masks and that question; is your camera merely a tool? Oh and the complaints phone is ringing off the hook following Kev’s loose talk. 😉 AND we launch next week’s new challenge.
It’s Tuesday, so for the second week it’s Tech Free Tuesday, anything you like, as personal as you like. This week Kev admits to missing the start of a wedding, people with GAS, folk who click their fingers for portraits, the Bokeh Chicken makes an appearance, and sort of, sort of, news of the next conference, or gathering, or whatever it’s going to be called! 😉
Start of a new week, so Kev and Neale have the results to last Friday’s penultimate Bar Nuts Quiz, there’s a new Daily Photo Challenge and questions on sanity, face masks and calibrating your screen for all monitors everywhere. Is that really possible?

The UK based photojournalist Ian Forsyth joins us on the show today to talk about the freedom to shoot, the ethics of shooting news, press freedom and being a stringer in the competitive field of photojournalism. Also today, making a leap of faith, and finding your confidence to ask strangers for a portrait.
The weekend has arrived and with it an interview. So prep a coffee and get some strong working advice on what you need from start to finish to go shoot real estate. Sincere thanks to Jon Buscall for his amazing help and time in making this episode and providing a Dropbox link to images you can practise on and sites to visit plus complete breakdown of focal lengths and kit required. Oh, and an invite to take the show to America. One day.

What? A complaint? Seriously? What two? Double seriously? Today we talk infrared, Lightroom, X-T3 v X-Pro3, there’s a studio invasion Kevin’s side and we introduce a thumpingly good photo challenge that you may want to take into the weekend. Thanks to Gabrielle Motola today for solving the IR question.
A real mixed bag today. Get it? Bag. Camera bags. Oh suit yourself. So, we talk camera bags, how to set up your X100 flavoured camera, winners in the World Press Awards and invite you to submit your best black and whites to the Ministry of Shadows. There’s also a new Daily Photo Challenge.
Back to a smidge of tech talk today. We talk batteries, street work, and audio to make your stories sing! Also it being a Wednesday, Kev has another book to tell you about from his BOOKS YOU NEED TO BUY WHEN IT’S SAFE TO START SPENDING MONEY AGAIN feature, though we think you’ll need to save a few pennies for this particular one – and of course there’s another Daily Photo Challenge.
