This weekly podcast is for those of us who have decided on a career change later in life.

I worked in Banking & IT for 40 years. In 2019 I had an opportunity to leave my corporate job and change my career, at the age of 56.

I talk about how I prepared for this, what I have learned so far, how I have coped during the pandemic and what I plan to do next.

My actor wife Sue occasionally co-hosts the show. She left her corporate career of over 35 years in 2018 to take up her current profession.

I hope you enjoy the show and would love to have you accompany me/us on the journey!

Real life journey

An excellent series of podcasts on Phil’s journey into full time pro photographer. I have known Phil in his previous life, and I’m into photography as well. Phil, and his wife Sue, are entertaining and open it the steps they are taking, some frustrating, but always taking away the positives and moving forward. The travel blogs and Forays into Sues acting career add to a great mix of information. The recent upgrade in quality of the kit used for recording these podcast is another step forward and I look forward to the next and future informative shows in the near future, subscribe now!!

Informative and Interesting.

For someone like me who doesn’t know a lot about photography or the different types of kit, this is still a great podcast. Phil varies the content and keeps it snappy. Makes me want to use my phone more for photos following some good advice. Keep doing it Phil.

Photography Podcast

Not sure this would be on everyone’s podcast list, but you will be pleasantly surprised. It’s well put together and there has been a marked improvement in quality over the last 4 episodes...it’s up there with others that I listen to. Keep up the good work Phil, we will all be photographers soon !
