Ep.39 - Interview With David Calvert

January 22, 2019

In this episode, it is my great pleasure to interview renowned photographer David Calvert FMPA FBIPP who is not only a wonderful photographer, but a true gentleman in the industry as well!

The conversation talks about his passion for portraits, how he first became a photographer, his aversion to debt (he learned that the hard way) and how he came to photograph a family's pet dog that had already ceased to be. There are many useful nuggets in here - about anxiety, running a photography business and how getting qualified can help negate your insecurities.

During the interview he mentions a couple of photographers - notably David Bailey and Patrick Lichfield - and refer's to Lichfield's book The Most Beautiful Women which was published back in 1981. If you're curious, you can buy a secondhand copy of the book for just a few pounds on Amazon UK.

Ep.38 Interview With David Stanbury

Ep.38 Interview With David Stanbury

January 13, 2019

In this interview it is my pleasure to be interviewing a great friend of mine and supreme wedding photographer, David Stanbury FMPA FSWPP FBIPP, where we talk about how he became a photographer, how being forced into a position where it had to make money might not have been such a bad thing (though it didn't feel like it at the time) and why he prefers red cabbage to Brussel sprouts. Who knew?

You can see more of David (and his wife, Jane's) work here.

We're also talking about the workshop myself and David are going to be hosting in Italy towards the end of March this year (details can be found at www.the2fellows.co.uk). At the time of publishing the podcast, we have a couple of places left so if you fancy a week talking of nothing but the business of wedding and portrait photography, drinking a little wine, eating a little pizza and laughing an awful lot then this is the workshop you've been waiting for.  Visit the website to see why.

Dave also mentions an amazing book during the interview: it's called Shades Of Grey by the incredible Oscar Marzaroli and you can still get copies on Amazon.

Ep. 37 Be Careful Who You Listen To

Ep. 37 Be Careful Who You Listen To

January 10, 2019

Happy New Year!  Here's to a fantastic 2019!

Had a few weeks off and feeling pretty excited about what this year will bring.  And am back recording new podcasts having enjoyed the break.  This podcast is just me musing on why it's important to be careful of what and who you pay attention to. Why? Well, if you're anything like me, you swing between creative confidence and complete self-doubt - and the more photographers I speak to, the more I realise that many of us fee the same way. You have to pick and choose with a little care if you don't want to feel demotivated and insecure rather than inspired and driven.
