Backing Paper #59

Rachel's Back! Hurrah and huzzah, Rachel returns to help go through another bulging mailbag of goodness.


Paul Friday's Poem:

On his darkslide, by Miltish.

When I consider how my life is spent

Counting seconds in this shed, so dark inside,

Or juggling lenses, both long and wide,

Lugging them all, though my back be bent.

To serve therewith my muses, and present

My true account, writ in silvery halide;

"Did that take a whole day?" they ask, so snide.

I bite my lip, more bitter banter to prevent,

But mutter "I need neither chip nor chimp for aid

To assist my eye, I have it best

From rule of thumb and circumstance of fate

Of stochastic influence my art is made.

You can keep your digital pleasures with the rest;

They too expose, who only stand and wait."

Backing Paper #58

In a break with tradition we've postponed the Sunnies Awards show as Rachel couldn't be with us this week, so instead Ade and Graeme spend an episode coming up with too many things to commit ourselves to doing, some of which might actually happen.


Most pressing amongst these are: Photowalk in London on the evening of Thursday 16th January, and Photo meetup in Oxford on February the 8th, more details to come.

Happy New Year Everyone!


We're back! Well, sort of - Graeme's back, but as the show progresses it becomes more and more evident that he's got a good cold going on, and sadly Rachel can't be with us this week. Fortunately for us and for you, Simon Forster off of the Classic Lenses and Large Format Photography podcasts stepped in to help out with a bulging sack of emails.

Listen / skip to the end for news on an upcoming photowalk in Oxford!

Ep. 183: A Christmas Miracle

A day (or two) late, but here for your festive ears nonetheless, it's the Sunny 16 Christmas episode! This show has it all! OK, maybe not ALL, but it does have Ade developing his first ever roll of film, a look at all the great prints sent in for the Ilford Paper competition and the picking of a winner, AND Christmas presents!

It's like a whole Christmas dinner in one podcast!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to Everyone, love and seasonally appropriate hugs from Rachel, Ade and Graeme

Ep. 182: Male Voice Choir

It's that time of the year for one of our favourite Seasonal traditions; the gathering together of three of the finest wise men of the web to look back over 2019, chat about the year that was and speculate on the year to come. Our three wise men are of course EM from, Hamish Gill from, and Bellamy Hunt from


Sadly no Rachel this week, just us Graeme and Ade in the mix, so good luck trying to pick out which British middle class voice is which! To help, if you hear someone risking life and limb in busy traffic, it's EM, if you hear someone making Sausage rolls it's Bellamy, and if you hear someone who sounds like they've just woken up...well, that could be Ade or Hamish!
