MPB Special: My PASSION for buying used cameras and kit!
It's an episode with a difference today. I'm embracing an opportunity to thank MPB for supporting this show during 2021. As COP 26 closed in mid November, sustainability was an important topic being discussed. I found myself in Brighton on a Photowalk, the city that is home to MPB, a company who recirculate more than 300,000 items of used kit every year, extending the life and creative potential of photo and video equipment for creators around the world. So join me as I visit the UK HQ of MPB.
Photowalk: Magnum's Mark Power & BEATING Imposter Syndrome!
Mark Power talks about his seminal work 'The Shipping Forecast' and his latest work shooting in America and Guernsey. It's the only podcast to take a photowalk making pictures together and reading from the mailbag, with letters this week about imposter syndrome, fighting off GAS, finding the joy of film, leaving photography to fall in love with it again, working with one camera and embracing sound. Supported by MPB.com and our Patrons.
I must confess that I’ve only listened to one podcast so far but I feel like this is the podcast that I’ve been searching for. I listened to a photo walk and found it a brilliant format. And inspirational- just go out and do a photo walk - kinda obvious but helpful when I feel overwhelmed by all the other things I need to do.
Warm, engaging, conversation about humanity through a camera lens
As a photographer, this is one of my go-to podcasts but the information and engagement transcends cameras, using them as a way to connect on a very human level. Neale James is a master of the interview, not content with the pro forma questions, rather he asks the things I want to know and some I didn’t know I wanted to know until he asks them. Neale’s interviews remind me of putting exposed paper into developer and watching a picture slowly rise and form until the story is complete.
I don’t feel as if I’m listening to a podcast. Instead I feel as if I’m sitting around a table just taking in a convivial exchange to which I’m incredibly lucky to listen. I feel as if I’m listening to a friend as he introduces me to new friends.
I am a patron of this podcast through Patreon and, in all honesty, it’s one of the best investments in infotainment I make each month. In fact, the Friday Photowalk is worth my donation alone. What? You don’t know about the Friday Photowalk? Grab a camera and a good pair of boots, some ear buds and your player, and join Neale, me, and a thousand of your “closest friends” every Friday as we walk, learn, laugh, and make images together. See you on the path…
Best show out there!!
I wouldn’t know what to listen to if you stopped... This is the best!! And being a Fuji lover, well that makes it even better! I do like the Fuji cast with Mr Mullens, but this to me is better! Have a great day, cheers
