Audio Diary 7 – Glasgow Wedding and Portrait Photographer Lawrence Scott

Lawrence Scott of www.lspix.co.uk agreed to record this interview while driving from Glasgow to Edinburgh to go see the Castle and catch up with a bunch of Scotish photographers in one of their most beautiful cities. On the drive, it was difficult to talk business with so many stories from Lawrence about his early days as a crime photographer - some of which you'll hear in this episode. We did get around to some photography business, life as a photographer based in [...]

Audio Diary 5 – London Documentary Wedding Photographer Mark Seymour

Mark Seymour of www.markseymourphotography.co.uk hosted an industry dinner that coincided with my time in London and I was lucky enough to be invited along. There were photographers, high-end function coordinators, a photography business coach, an album company representative, a wedding marketing startup sales person and an incredible meal hosted by Mark and Karen at their lovely home. The idea of these dinners/get-togethers (this is the second time Mark has hosted a dinner like this) is to network, make friends and meet [...]

Audio Diary 4 – London Street and Wedding Photographer Darren Lehane

Darren Lehane of www.lehane.photo has some pretty strong feelings on what is and what isn't street photography. It's the same with gear, especially new photography gear and the clamour for photographers to get hold of it to make them a better photographer or somehow improve their photography business. After spending a few days with Darren while visiting the UK, it was very cool to hear his thoughts on all things photography - from street, weddings, personal projects, books, the masters and skills of today's photographers. Not [...]

Audio Diary 3 – Cardiff portrait photographer and YouTuber Rahim Mastafa

Rahim Mastafa of www.rahimphoto.co.uk has recently made the transition from fitness and gym based photography to costume based shoots in and around Cardiff in the UK. One thing stood out about Rahim while staying with him for a couple of days on my UK trip - just how easily he made connections with anyone, anywhere. One example was while paying for a jacket purchase in a department store, Rahim started chatting to the sales assistant who turned out to [...]

Audio Diary 2 – Bristol alternative wedding photographer Lionel Taplin

Lionel Taplin of www.stealthedayphotography.co.uk moved from photographing bands to wedding photography with his own spin on alternative. Although Lionel is based in Bristol, he made the trip over to Cardiff to meet up as I was passing through. Once we started talking about his journey from bands to brides and hearing about Lionel's success with bookings via Instagram, I stopped him right there, grabbed the audio recorder and retraced what he'd covered so far before going deeper on how he's made [...]

Audio Diary 1 – Belfast with Dermot and Catherine Murphy

Dermot and Catherine Murphy of www.dermotmurphy.com run a successful family photography studio in Belfast, Northern Ireland and I had the chance to record a short interview with them around their dining table while visiting. I feel very lucky to have been offered a room at their home when Dermot heard I'd be visiting the area. I had no idea how much better it would be to discover a city in tow with a local photographer. Not only did I get a [...]

TPX23: Michael Blann – A Book of Epic Photography for An Epic Sporting Event

Michael Blann of www.michaelblann.com was a selfish choice for an interview for me. I first learned about Michael after seeing an ad for Phase One Cameras showing him working in the high mountains of France... photographing the greatest race on earth, the Tour de France. My passion. The Phase one ad was based around Michael's new book - "Mountains - Epic Cycling Climbs" which was three years in the making. It's a book that brings together a photography project that [...]
