    This episode see’s Wayne Johns & Jake Hicks interview Elisabeth Hoff, an amazing women who sailed the world as a child with her family, and later on then went on to be the first woman to attempt to row ‘solo’ across the Atlantic, which almost led to disaster…
     
    We dive into Elisabeth’s world to find out how she went from the realms of near death experiences in the ocean, to studying Marine Biology, and to where she is today as a very well known and respected Fashion, Beauty Photographer, Director and Art Director.
     
    Elisabeth’s forté of photographing what is known in the industry as ‘real people’ is easily seen in her work and portfolio..she has an amazing client base with tons of this work and it’s all naturally beautiful; every one looks so happy and truly like they’re really enjoying themselves in front of the camera.
    We try and find out how she does it and how she makes all her talent feel special.
     
    A big advocate of looking after our oceans and environment, some of Elisabeth’s personal work is immensely powerful and sadly very factual with the information that goes with it.
     
    A women of many talents, Elisabeth quickly embraced the moving image side of the industry as a director, so not only does she shoot the Ad campaign stills she also directs the commercials too…A clever business move…
     
    Interviewing Elisabeth was a pleasure, she is such a warm and open person, who openly shares that anything is possible, if you really want it.
     
    Head on over to Elisabeth’s website to see some of her amazing work both in Photography and as a Director.

    Episode 26 COVID-19 Stay Creative and Create at Home

    Episode 26 COVID-19 Stay Creative and Create at Home

    Episode 26 COVID-19 Stay Creative and Create at Home
      
    First off, we want to say among all the chaos we are all enduring at the moment with this terrible global pandemic, we hope everyone is staying safe and well.
    Our thoughts and well wishes also go out to all those directly affected by the COVID-19 virus.
     
    In this episode, Wayne & Jake we briefly touch on the impact Covid-19 has had on all of us, and how its affected our business as Photographers and creatives.
     
    In these current times of ‘lock down’ where most of us are in the ‘Stay at Home’ situation how do we stay creative and what can we do from home to remain creative as well as to help us keep a healthy mind. We know as creatives we get quite twitchy when we can’t get our creative jig on.
     
    Join us as we discuss some of the things we’ve been doing to keep our creative minds occupied, turning our ‘should do’s’ into ‘have done’s’ and our ‘I want to do’s’ into ‘I’m doing them’.
     
    We talk some about some serious stuff, some business stuff and some fun stuff too….
     
    I think we all need to do something to make us laugh during these times, and we all know laughter can certainly help lift the mood….
     
    Have fun with this one and remember, STAY IN AND STAY SAFE! - Our thoughts go out to everyone and thanks for being staying tuned in to our podcast.
     
    Remember, if have a question about anything Photography or Video/Cinema related, we’d love to hear them, you can send your questions to podlamania@gmail.com

    Episode 25 Archie Brooksbank 'Bladesman Productions' Pt 2

    Episode 25 Archie Brooksbank Bladesman Productions Part 2
    Welcome back to part 2 of this fun episode with Archie Brooksbank.
    We dive straight into our fun feature on the show our ‘Rapid Fire Round’, where we put Archie on the spot with 10 very random questions.
    On with the show and Archie tells us about a shoot he was on with the boxer ‘David Hayes’ where he accidentally stepped on his dog… the man wasn’t happy!
    Are blue crocs the best shoe your feet can have to get the best feet party?
    He shares how important it to wear a cravat or scarf to let people know you’re automatically creative.
    Have DSLR’s and mirrorless stills cameras with great video features affected the moving image world of advertising, is there a place in our world now relevant for untapped creativity.
    We talk about his documentary background and how working in tv has helped his story telling, and how shooting stills has really made him think more about his shots in moving image.
    Archie shares some funny stories about filming with ACDC legend Brian Johnson, and the ‘Cars that Rock’ show.
    BTS shots and video is becoming far more relevant for clients now, for ‘repurposing’ for other uses like social media.
    We talk al little about Drones, or flying lawnmowers as Jake calls them, and how useful they are now.
    A brilliant and very fun episode with Archie, who did so well under the pressures of Wayne & Jake, while suffering sleepless nights with a new born.. Congrats Archie!

    Episode 22 Wayne Johns & Jake Hicks FILM IS NOT DEAD

    Episode 22 Wayne Johns & Jake Hicks FILM IS NOT DEAD

    Valentines Day Special with just Wayne Johns and Jake Hicks talking about everything analogue. Is film really dead?
    Join Wayne and Jake as They discuss what role film and older analogue cameras has in todays photography market. Why should you pick up an old film camera? What are the benefits of going medium format over 35mm? Which medium format film camera should you jump in with?
    We also get a little technical on the process involved of actually shooting film. What do we need to be aware of when shooting film over digital. Elements many modern photographers take for granted like adjusting the ISO, auto focus, White balance, and of course actually SEEING the image afterwards. How do we get some digital, sharable files from our film shots.All of theses elements are major considerations in film, but are there actually any benefits to be had from shooting film beyond the simple ‘challenge’ itself? We take a step back from digital ‘perfection’ for a moment and embrace the ‘happy accidents’ that shooting with film can offer, and with it, the inevitable creativity that comes with that. If you’re feeling like your creatively and inspiration is waning, maybe it’s time to be inspired by film once again.
    We also take a moment at the end to answer any listener questions with regards to film, but if you have any other questions about film and analogue that weren’t covered in this episode, we’d love to hear them.

Cracking podcast

Great part 2 with Archie, loved it! Ta

Cjohns123 ,

Fantastic podcast

Loving episode 23, made me crack up! 😀

Neil Ford ,

Haven’t laughed so hard in a long time

Episodes 17 & 18 with Benjamin Kanarek are quite possible two of the funniest and best podcast episode I have ever listened to. Great stories from the world of fashion photography but also great insight and some great advice sprinkled in too. Really can’t recommend them, and the podcast in general, enough. And a whole load more episodes with Benjamin wouldn’t go amiss either 😀
