Dust off your old film camera and join Rachel, Clare, John and Graeme on their adventures in the wonderful world of analog photography, from point and shoots to pinholes and everything in between.
Ep. 252: Human contact: What it is and how to deal with it
On this weeks show we ramble broadly on about what it's been like to start interacting with other people photographically in the wake of the first photo walk since January 2020.
A huge shout out to everyone we met on the day, especially all the people who we failed to mention on the show - it was lovely getting to see you all/watch many of you slowly turn bright pink!
Ep. 251: Agent Shadow
On this weeks show we're delighted to be joined by Stephen Dowling of Kosmo Foto to hear all about his new line of film, Agent Shadow, and the Kickstarter that's launching it.
Ep. 250: Lomokinonononononono
On this weeks (belated) show we hear how John's work in preparation for his collaborative exhibition is going, how Clare's work in preparation for her part in the Experimental Photography festival is proceeding, and how Graeme flooded his shed with fixer. Not everyone can be doing something great I guess.
On top of that we have a great and thought provoking selection of emails to share with you.

Ep. 249: Shutter Bugs
On this weeks show Graeme is chatting in person with Dave Walker, all round lovely chap and smart dude, about using modern and easily available technology to solve some of the problems facing analogue photographers and his own project attempting to re-interpret the innards of old electronics based cameras!

E248 : The new states man
On this weeks show we're joined by the mighty Mike Caputo to talk about his recently edited and published photography magazine which features a different photographer for each of the 50 US states sharing their work!
We also talk about Graeme's new enlarger, the trip he made with John to get it, and his pretty amazing Birthday camera.
Also, there was a surprise collection of listener content at the end of the show for Graeme, including a couple of very different but equally magical songs amongst many other kindnesses. A huge thank you to everyone who got in touch and sent something in, you are all far better people than we deserve to have listening!

enough of the touchy feely and mediocrity
This used to be one of my favourite podcasts. The celebration of mediocrity became a total yawn fest. Crap film, crap cameras, basically any old crap process. Now I listen only to the episodes when it’s just Graeme and John. They are brilliant but all too seldom.
Please keep politics out of podcast. I’m
here for film and cameras and the community not a BBC esk political monologue
