    Episode 174 - the end

    Welcome to episode 174 of photography insights, the show that goes behind the scenes with people in the photography industry.



    Today you have just myself to listen to!  So in this one find out:


    Street candy update
    Kirklees photographic
    a few messages from guests
    why I'm stopping



    I wanted to say for anyone reading the notes, it's been a great 3 years of my life doing this.  I've thoroughly enjoyed speaking with people around the globe and meeting so many friends.  Each one has meant so much and I've learned from so many and hope you are proud of who I'm becoming.



    I could never have envisaged this change happening, but after the changes discussed in the podcast you can understand why.

    Keep watching my social feed for any updates.



    Thanks for all the fish.

    A catch up with Ethan Moses

    A catch up with Ethan Moses

    My name is Andrew Walmsley and your listening to episode 173 of photography insights.  This is the show that interviews people from the photography world.



    Today we get to catch up with Ethan Moses from Cameradactyl.  I hadn't spoken to Ethan since November 2019 but always followed his work.  When he was running a recent project I couldn't help but be interested.  Ethan has been playing with "afghan" cameras as they call them, huge 20x24 bits of technology.  Not only that but he's been using the ra4 process to make his own version of instant positive prints!



    Ethan's personality always shines through, a man who can't stop playing and inventing.  So in this one listen out for:


    instax + polaroid film
    Elsa Dorfman
    Zorki/Fed/Kiev + Pentacons
    Mongoose + Meerkat
    Making cameras
    Repairing & playing
    Selling to the industry

    Matilde Simas - Human rights, cybersex + trafficking

    Matilde Simas - Human rights, cybersex + trafficking

    My name is Andrew Walmsley and your listening to episode 172 of photography insights.  This is the show that interviews people from the photography world.

    Today we get to talk about documentary photography and about subject that is worth you knowing about.  When I first approached Matilde Simas about her work I was interested in her approach and how she worked given the difficult subject.  So to better explain Matilde is a documentary photographer from Boston in the USA.  Matilde is a graduate of psychology, a humanitarian (founded Capture Humuanity which we discuss) , parent and photographer.  The work is all about human rights and has had her work across galleries around the world.

    Matilde herself is a lovely person and the work is about careful thought of representing this subject matter,  It's been achieved with some class, dignity and respect of the survivors of trafficking.  Trafficking is one of the subjects we have heard about but don't always know  much about.  There maybe some sad parts to the interview as it's pretty emotional stuff hearing about this, but I urge you to carry on.

    You can see more of her work and the countries she has been to on her website and this will provide a better focus of the problems in that area.  It's not something that is happening in third world countries either, it happens everywhere as you will hear!

    We also approach the topic of the Massai warriors and female genital modification too, which again is another human right issue in many countries.  Having choice is not always clear or straight forward, despite the health concerns.



    So in this one:


    support, shelters & psychological help
    NGO's
    vulnerability
    forced labour, marriage and servants
    cybersex
    re-trafficking
    FGM
    Massai customs
    portraiture

    Shin Yatagai - Blur, paintings and visions

    Shin Yatagai - Blur, paintings and visions

    My name is Andrew Walmsley and your listening to episode 171 of photography insights.  This is the show that interviews people from the photography world.



    For this episode we jump across the ocean to Japan and talk with Shin Yatagai. He's another young photographer with some beautiful work behind him.  Initially a recommend by the one and only Johan Brooks from episode 158. Shin's work is about attention to detail rather lens sharpness or quality.  He finds a concept, plans and executes this work with an artistic flair.  I have to thank Shin for speaking in English too, considering he only lived in the UK for a year and doesn't speak very often.

    I really enjoyed talking to Shin, he's down to earth and shy but very creative.  He even speaks freely about living with ADHD and how he copes with his photography.  We had some laughs and discussed:


    inspirations from paintings
    classic photography
    capture one
    making a vision
    capturing movement
    directing models
    culture + non-traditional clothing
    textures + structures
    self portraiture

    Steve Dunwell - Drones, Harvard & Initiative

    Steve Dunwell - Drones, Harvard & Initiative

    My name is Andrew Walmsley and your listening to episode 170 of photography insights.  This is the show that interviews people from the photography world.

    Today I'm bringing you a longer interview, it's mainly because Steve articulates so well I didn't want to remove much from our chat.  Steve Dunwell was recommended by the lovely Lou Jones so naturally I had to look at his work.  He comes from the Boston region of America too, but shoots aerial and architecture work.  It's a very different field to most and due to the nature of the work very different!

    It's really intriguing talking to someone who just hops on a plane or helicopter with someone after thinking about an idea.  Sometimes it's not about working for clients, but a project or picture he has in mind.  Steve has many decades experience in the industry so seen a lot of changes and adopted these in his work.  In the last 5 years he has used the DJI range of drones to further increase the style of work he can create.

    So in this one we discuss:


    point of view
    specialising
    working with clients
    initiative
    timing + seasons
    competing
    patterns
    Harvard university



    There will be some example images from Steve on the website too, so look out for those.

    andrew sanderson – art, fun and prints

    andrew sanderson – art, fun and prints

    My name is Andrew Walmsley and your listening to episode 169 of photography insights.  This is the show that interviews people from the photography world.



    Today it's a slightly shorter show than usual and one of the catch up's I discussed about last year.  There will be more of these over the coming months but will spread them out.  This one features Andrew Sanderson from the UK, who was last on the show back in episode 66!  So I thought it would be nice to near what Andrew's worked on over the last couple of years.



    Andrew is the infamous Ilford darkroom master who has helped many people. He is caring and knowledgeable person and often found helping us newbie's out on Facebook groups.  He recently started a new business and has launched a new Instagram at the same time.  He's offering a creative approach to printing.  So instead of offering a straight lab print, if you allow him, he will provide his own artistic interpretation.  I think it's a great idea and already he's seeing some interest in this idea.



    In this one we discuss:


    keeping people interested
    kit&pro lenses
    weird lens guy
    fun
    art galleries



    Please do check out Andrew's new feed and he's also sent over an example image of a print he's made, so check that out on my website.

Fresh, interesting and down to earth.

I’ve been listening to Andy since he started. He uses the podcast to share his enthusiasm for photography and life in general. He’s a sincere and thoughtful host who asks the questions we would ask.

Listen and decide for yourself.

Talented Interviewer, Great Content

Andrew Walmsley (aka, the Phlogger) is a talented interviewer who is deeply passionate about photography in all of its forms and approaches. His long-form approach to podcast production is refreshing and he has interviewed some of the interesting photographers of today. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him and listening to his content.

Don’t bother

Worst interviewer in history. Mumbles. Interrupts. Wouldn’t know an intelligent question if it fell on him.
