Ep. 226: Planning To Succeed

On this weeks show, Rachel and Clare give the hapless Graeme an insight into the kind of planning and preparation that goes into a successful shoot, exhibition, event or whatever it may be - turns our it's a lot! Given how little time many of us have to actually take pictures, we hope a chat about how to get the most from that time will be useful.

As part of this we've also decided that in two weeks, on December the 17th, we're going to attempt another one hour challenge, but this time we're all going to plan in advance and see if that helps! We'd love you to join us virtually for it and take part, so get planning your shoot and there will be more details soon!


Here's the link to Rachel's music!

In a break from our usual programming schedule, this week we have for you the first episode of I Dream of Cameras, a show created for us by Jeff Greenstein and Gabe Sachs, two Hollywood producers who just happen to be avid camera enthusiasts and collectors, talking about their collections and cameras past, and what they mean to them.

On this weeks show we're delighted to be joined by Shane Balkowitsch, a wet plate collodion photographer who, since making his first plate in 2012 with no prior photographic knowledge, has gone on to create an incredible body of work, taken world famous portraits, and is working on an amazing project to photograph 1000 native Americans. All this, and much more.

Got a real treat for you this week, with multi award winning photographer Brian Griffin, one of the most respected and lauded photographers of the 70's and '80's, a photographer who not only managed to make photo's of business leaders into surrealist art, but also shot some of the biggest names in music in the 80's, and is responsible for some iconic record covers.


We had a great chat with Brian, but we only got to scratch the surface of his experiences. Luckily for us all he's currently kickstarting a book documenting his work and life from 1969 to 1990 called "Black Country DADA" so go check that out!
