Ep. 218: Bank Holiday Boys

This week it's John and Graeme catching up, with chats about Johns recent experiences using the Cameradactyl OG large format camera, and actually getting to try out the Pixl-latr to see if it will become part of his workflow. 

Graeme for his part got stung by a wasp, so everyone's bringing something to the table.

Ep. 215: A Hot Mess

On this weeks show we're joined by Matt Parry and David Allen to talk about their new zine "2 Sic 2 Spurious", chock full of community provided mistakes and mishaps on film. It's a great zine, and far better than a collection of cock-ups has any right to be!

Ep. 212: Change Bag

It's a combo show this week, with Rachel, Clare and Graeme here to first off delve into some splendid listener emails, and then fill you in on some hopefully exciting and quite big (for us) changes coming to how we're going to be going forwards here at Sunny 16 Towers.


We hope you're all on board, and we're incredibly thankful for everyone who's come on the journey with us this far.
