Neale JamesShow Host & Chief Button Twister

Broadcaster, photographer, filmmaker and now podcaster, Neale James has worn many hats during his three decades in the creative arts. His work in radio includes time spent presenting Rockline at BBC Radio 1 with guests ranging from NIN’s Trent Reznor to the first radio phone-in appearance by Take That!

He’s toured with Michael Jackson and Aerosmith and co-launched the UK’s first Internet-only radio channel.

Embracing a photography business, Neale found himself shooting weddings fifteen years ago, an unexpected diversion from a fledgeling commercial portrait business he was establishing. In that time he has photographed eight hundred weddings for a wide diversity of clients.

He first picked up a Fujifilm camera just after the launch of the X100 in 2011 and the developing cameras and types quickly became go-to kit for film making projects such as the Fujifilm and Magnum agency co-produced Home project. Now, a full-time Fujifilm shooter, he shoots with the X-T3 citing the 23mm and 56mm as his favourite glass and focal lengths.

Kevin MullinsShow Host & Chief Grump

Kevin is an official Fujifilm X-Photographer and has been shooting exclusively with the Fujifilm X-Series since 2012.

Kevin has been shooting weddings for over ten years, during which his commitment to the documentary style of photography has been unwavering. 

In reality, of course, this means more than just avoiding the “say cheese” comments – Kevin weaves a story at every wedding. 

He believes that just like a written story there should be a start, a middle and an end, all linked to form a body of work that the clients will look back on with their own grandchildren in many years’ time.

Additionally, Kevin is very envious of Neale’s biography and can only add that Bill Gates owes him money and he once insulted Kylie Minogue (accidentally) by asking her who she was.

However, he has represented his country (Cymru) at Judo and has more tatoos than Neale.

#209 Seeing theatre in your street photography & what makes a great image?

Kev is under the weather but the test came back clean so he’s fit to fly on the podcast and Neale has unleashed (can you see what we did there) his own studio dog. We muse over photographers that can’t or won’t embrace innovation, talk cropping, discuss the amount of images returned to clients from an edit, how we send images to clients, whether it’s time to finally drop the full frame lens equivalent references, ask what makes an image great and other stories. Our guest is street photographer and FujiFilm ambassador Polly Rusyn.
