    Kristen Joy Emack - Barbie, cousins and denial

    Kristen Joy Emack - Barbie, cousins and denial

    My name is Andrew Walmsley and your listening to episode 156 of photography insights.  This is the show that interviews people from the photography world.



    In this weeks episode I talk to an award winner.  Kristen Joy Emack recently won the ZEKE award by the Social Documentary Network.  I'm so thankful to come their work and start sharing some of the wonderful photographers with you.  Kristen's work stood out as it showed something important to me - family.  Not all work needs to about a model, a worn torn country or something miles away - it can be that thing right in front of your nose.  I know for me I struggle with this and talk about this.  But Kristen presents her cousins project with an array of her photographs over the years as an interesting story.  She opens up about the story of the cousins and her project based around her daughter too.  



    We also talk about something that effects everyone in their lives at some point.  Kristen had never spoken about this body of work so it felt really special to talk about something so dear to her heart.  She lost her best friend and talks about her approach of coping with this and her photography project.  



    It was a pleasure to talk with Kristen about life, we all share these connections, it should not matter about our locations, circumstances or skin colours. I felt so privileged learning about her friend Gina and hope you do too - maybe you can relate.

    Episode 155 - the week that wasn't

    There is no show this week due to my cold/flu.  Been struggling for a week and losing my voice, so had to cancel 3 interviews and may mean no podcast for 1 or 2weeks.



    Sorry all but back soon.



    In the meantime I have wrote a short article on Washi film - https://phlogger.co.uk/shooting-washi-film-architecture-filters-and-portraits/ It's a great company so do check them out - links in the article.

    A catch up with Paul from Analogue Wonderland

    A catch up with Paul from Analogue Wonderland

    My name is Andrew Walmsley and your listening to episode 154 of photography insights.  This is the show that interviews people from the photography world.



    I have been shooting film for about 5 years now (or so I believe) and buying it initially online was always daunting. The world is very different now with so many places to buy from but that offer more than just a place to buy.  Luckily I came across Paul at Analogue Wonderland just over 3 years ago. It was clear he had a fresh approach to the industry and quickly established his business.  From his initial interview back in August 2018 I wanted to reach out again to try and summarise whats happened to Analogue Wonderland in the last 3 years.



    Paul always seemed like one of us and felt like you were dealing with a friend and investing in something good. From the reviews side to the loyalty rewards, it just felt he had really nailed the film sector.  I'm always keen on following people that do good things and Paul is definitely one (as you will soon find out).



    Because its late September 2021, the photography show has just finished too so we had time to talk about Hamish Gill and Paul's involvement in the Analogue spotlight segment.  I'm not hear to tell you where to buy your stuff from, thats not me.  I only tell you about businesses I like and the ones I use.  On a personal level I'm thank full to Paul for the introductions too, which has brought some fantastic guests like Lomig at Washi!



    We've kept this episode short as it's a catch up.  So in this small episode we discuss:

    - films stocks & covid

    - colour 120 film

    - cloning humans

    - Pinsta camera

    - analogue spotlight

    - the film lab

    - building a darkroom

    - teams

    - wonderbox

    Lindsay Adler - colour, lighting and technology

    Lindsay Adler - colour, lighting and technology

    My name is Andrew Walmsley and your listening to episode 153 of photography insights.  This is the show that interviews people from the photography world.



    My friend Stephen Rendall had talked about a famous fashion photographer during a previous podcast (link here).  After going through some of this persons work I was actually enthralled by it and just had to get in contact with them.  Now this was not easy to pull off, she is a very busy lady and it's took some months but I'm pleased to say we have Lindsay Adler.  Lindsay is amazing photographer, who is at the top of her game in the fashion industry (she has over 388k followers just on Instagram!).  Her work is on magazine covers, editorials and adverts across places like Marie Claire, Elle Magazine etc. Lindsay teaches through her links with Adorama, Canon and places like Creative Live too.  She also has 5 books out there too and also started her own learning platform. I truly believe you will become hooked on her work once you check it out.

    What I really liked about Lindsay is not just the hard work and countless hours she puts in, but she cares about her team around her.  She talks to us about this especially during times like this pandemic.  Lindsay is very honest and doesn't mind sharing tips with us all, so in this one we discuss:




    mood boards + stories
    researching artists/stylists,make up
    wedding photography
    purpose + colour
    holding attention
    wet plate
    technology changes
    best modifiers
    importance of lighting
    lasers



    Listen out for her answers to my random questions too.

    Shoutout

    Thanks to Paul Ottley for kind words recently on social media.  A great guy who started his photography journey in the last few years and I helped teach a little about lighting. 

    As you heard last week about my latest article on that old WW2 hospital. I've had some lovely feedback from the lady who run the tours and have something to offer a few of you. Mary can actually arrange some small group tours for photographers that include a 7 hour visit - so plenty of time to shoot!  It's in a small group of 4 and if anyone is interested please get in touch.

    Lena Storjohann - EBS, pinhole and roundabouts

    Lena Storjohann - EBS, pinhole and roundabouts

    My name is Andrew Walmsley and your listening to episode 152 of photography insights.  This is the show that interviews people from the photography world.



    It's funny how my previous guests can influence my decisions over future shows.  Kat Reichert was someone I became friends with, so when she recommend Lena Storjohann I reached out straight away.  Lena's work falls under the Lomography field, it's full of colour and alternative thinking.  We began talking as she attended the Experimental photography festival in Barcelona.  Well it turns out she took part and had a workshop on multiple exposure.  You can see how this type of work suits Lena, as she thinks differently about using film - wait till you hear about exposing both sides of the film (EBS).  Her fun continues by using 35mm film canisters for pinhole work!



    So in this one we discuss:

    - macro & contrast

    - still life

    - double exposure

    - ebs

    - solargraphy

    - pin hole

    -roundabouts

    - peanut cans

    - washi film

    - film soups

    Paula Tognarelli - curating, diversity and teamwork

    Paula Tognarelli - curating, diversity and teamwork

    I'm Andrew Walmsley and your listening to episode 151 of photography insights.  The show that interviews people from the photography world.

    In this weeks show I have a person who has been talked about so much. Many of fine art guests have talked about the Griffin museum and a lady called Paula Tognarelli.  So we managed to arrange a suitable time and here we are!



    First off I should say thanks to all my friends for recommending her.  Paula is simply a lovely character who cares deeply about the museum and the artists.  From the long days in the office, to searching Instagram in the early hours of the morning. She does not stop hunting for great people to work with.  It's clear from our conversation she really enjoys the world of photography and also missed taking part herself. After 20 years at the Griffin museum you can understand her quest to retire and get back to her ideas.  Coming from a family of inventors hopefully she will find time to execute some of her thoughts!



    In this one we discuss:


    curators
    mindsets
    diversity
    portfolio reviews
    advice for artists
    passions
    teamwork



    Paula also goes through my random questions so find out which film she recommends you don't watch!

    Shout out

    I wanted to share with you some feedback from a guest who is now my friend. This one is from Kat Reichert

    I had the pleasure of speaking with Andy recently and found him to be not only an approachable and kind guy, but one of those who immediately feels like one of your favorite family members. You know the type- the ones who are easy going, non-judgmental, helpful AND fun to bounce ideas around with. He is humble, curious and just lovely, overall. Our interview honestly flew by and had there been time I felt like we easily could have talked for hours.

    Of his podcast in general- there is something for everyone. He has interviewed such a wide variety of talent on topics ranging from science to alt pro to the human experience and just about everything in between. Check it out, there is guaranteed to be someone on there you will connect with. I've been exposed to so many photographers I hadn't heard of prior and have had a huge takeaway from all of them."

Master Red X ,

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.

Nick St.Oegger ,

Great Show, Laid Back Interviewer

Really enjoyed my recent interview with Andrew for the podcast. Hadn't heard of the show before but am glad it's on my radar. I think it's a great way to get an insight into the ins and outs of working in the photography world and the unique way different practitioners go about their creative work. Andrew is a laid back guy who asks insightful questions. A great listen for anyone interested in photography, amateurs and pros.

slbehr ,

A great show for photographers and fans of photography

I'm really enjoying these podcasts, and I'm looking forward to listening to more of them. It's a great mix of photographers and styles, and Andrew has a way of making you feel really comfortable with the conversation.
