    YouTube. That's where I turn for this episode. It's tentacular nature is fantastical, photography and film making being a subject matter that is popular on the platform. One of the UK's rising YouTubers in this genre is a talented photographer called Sean Tucker. I find out what makes his channel so different and how he has succeeded, retaining his integrity and making unique philosophical photographic film content.

    Today’s guest is a special breed of photojournalist. Though he’d be brisk to point out he’s no hero; that those he photographs and the conditions he makes photographs in is what should draw you to his work. Australian photographer Cam Neville makes pictures of those who fight the ruthless bush fires that rip through whole communities across Australia, but his work doesn’t stop at recording the devastation to property, the bush, people and wildlife, he fights the fires too.

A must have podcast for anyone interested in the art of photography!

The Breathe Pictures Podcast is pure gold! Neale James has created a great podcast for anyone interested in the art, craft and personality’s behind modern and historical photographers alike. The production/sound quality is of the highest standard, these are not just one take interviews but handcrafted masterpieces of audio history for photography. The creativity/style Neale uses is a mixture that reminds me of the classic radio broadcast/tv documentaries of 90’s with a multi sensory approach using soundscapes to really enhance the story and message being delivered behind each interview with his own unbiased monologue scattered throughout. There is a great mixture of photographers too, give it a listen, you won’t regret it! Keep up the great work Neale!

Thank you Neale, thank you Kevin. Listening to Robin Ravilious talking about James and their life in North Devon was just wonderful, even more so when I put Robin's voice to her written work. Made my day!
