On this weeks show we talk about what we'd be leaving behind for others if we suddenly weren't here. This included topics like the way we all handle our image storage, both digital and physical, how our pictures could be accessed and used by others in the future, and how someone who isn't into photography could make any sense out of our mountains of gear!
It's a post festive period catchup this week, and a look ahead to a year of hopefully photographic fun.
Our impromptu list of monthly subject/inspiration topics:
June: Song Lyric
July: Electric Dreams
August: Motivated light
September: Forced perspective
November: Into the night
Seasons Greetings everyone, we're here with an alcohol fueled mini Sunny Awards show so pull the good stuff out of 2021 before we cast the generally wretched year into the fiery abyss forever.

On this weeks show, after a suitably rambling start, we get into a discussion about some of Ade and Clare's favourite photographers (the very different William Eggleston, Dianne Arbus, Corinne Day and Helmut Newton) why their work has been important to them over the years, and why it stands out amongst the sea of photography out there. We also have a couple of cracking follow up emails from last weeks show.
Ade, Clare and Graeme ease themselves back into the podcast mindset with a rambling conversation about our recent adventures, what inspires us to shoot, how we feel about what we shoot and a host of digressions. Like we said, we're easing our rusty pod-brains back into gear this week, so bear with!
The podcast returns this week as Ade, Clare, Hamish and Graeme get together to remember our dear friend John in the way that he affected all of our lives - positively. No tears, some laughs, and at the end just a whole load of John
We don't dwell on what his loss means to us personally, because if you listened to the last podcast then you deserve a break and a medal, and if you've listened to this podcast over the last couple of years then you already know. He brought joy, wisdom, compassion, support and inspiration to all of us, and now we don't have him. It sucks. It hurts.
Thanks for bearing with us :)

It's the Cheap Shots Challenge, back again helping you relaxing with the theme UNWIND.
We are joined by the fabulous Tina Rowe who gives us a little update of what she has been up to as well as providing some valuable commentary on the submissions on the way to selecting a winner.
Who knows what they will physically win, but a winner in the eyes of Tina is the greatest prize anyone could hope for.

On this weeks show we're delighted to be joined by the fabulous Alexandra Heron, photographer and now public speaker, to talk about her long term project "Breadth", a collection of beautiful portraits of people on the Autistic spectrum, as is Alex, and their own individual stories, with the aim of shattering the many stereotypes associated with autism.
