Ep.43 Interview: Keith Roberts Paragon Pixels Founder

March 10, 2019

In this interview, I get to chat with Keith Roberts who had the masterstroke idea of matching top portrait photographers with the world's top cruise line.

He talks about his life prior to setting up Paragon Pixels with many funny stories along the way (listen out for how he managed to screw up a critical roll of film while working in medical photography, leaving him barricaded inside the hospital dark room!)

Keith is a remarkable guy on a number of levels - not least of which, is that he is a phenomenal photographer in his own right but has spent most of his life promoting the work of others (something that is all too rare!) It was his idea to match up some of the world's top portrait photographers with the world's top cruise line and, along with Phil, his brother, and Phil's wife, Lydia, he set up the company which now delivers beautiful images to discerning passengers around the globe. 

And I am very lucky to BE one of those photographers!

Keith cites his favourite book as Steve McCurry's South Southeast. Enjoy!

Ep.42 Portraits On A Cruise Ship? Things You Never Considered.

Ep.42 Portraits On A Cruise Ship? Things You Never Considered.

March 3, 2019

It's just me for this episode: me, a microphone and my musings on creating portraits when on board a ship.  

When I first encountered the luxury cruise ship that was to be our home and business for the next month, I thought that creating images on board would be a simple extension of what we do here at the studio.  Of course, there are similarities but there are also innumerable unexpected factors to consider. Such as what happens when the ship changes it's bearing or how the different spaces of the ship are utilised during the day, making picking a spot that bit more complicated!
