“Photography is the art of not pushing the button."
The second of the two shorter holiday editions where the boys discuss some of their inspirations including Don McCullin's 'In Africa’ book and ‘Extraordinary Women’ by Tom Stoddart. They also talk of photographer inspirations, Kev choosing Frank Horvat who is responsible for suggesting; “Photography is the art of not pushing the button,” and Neale being fascinated by Søren Solkær’s Murmurations study.

Well that was 2020 huh?
A shorter holiday length edition in which the boys look back at 2020 and how the year changed their perspective on photography, film making and podcasting. Kev shares his purchases of the year, what pivoting means for their individual businesses, their loathing for masks, their hopes for 2021.

The Camera of the Year and a new XH?
