Kev’s overheating and he’s had just four hours sleep in as many days! Neale is pining for Africa again as the boys talk about where they’d like to make photo stories when the world opens up. Tamron has a new lens for us to look forward to, packing a bag for 24 hours in New York City, The Great British Photography Challenge, watermarking, a tool that can select our best pictures by ai, self publishing, why Kev has fallen out of love with WordPress and street shooting legally; good news! The book of the week is Do Photo by Andrew Paynter and our guest is Northern Ireland’s only independent camera store owner, photographer Pascal Diamond.

Book of the week is Do Photo Andrew Paynter
‘In a world where everyone is a photographer now, how do you stand out? The answer can be found in this simple but profound book. It will train your eye to see what others don’t.‘ David Hieatt
This isn’t a book about how to take the best pictures. It’s not even about the technical aspects of photography or how to ‘make it’ as a photographer. In fact, it argues that you should take fewer photographs.
By sharing 10 practices honed over a lifetime spent behind the lens working with clients such as Adidas, Levi Strauss, and Apple, photographer Andrew Paynter encourages you to develop a more considered approach to photography so that you craft pictures with care. Do Photo teaches novice, intermediate and advanced photographers -and everyone in between – how to use their cameras to really connect with subjects, create memorable and more impactful photographs, and to enjoy the process along the way. And guess what? It all starts before you even pick up the camera.
Preface by artist Geoff McFetridge.
