    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!

    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."

    Joni Sternbach - surfing, tin type and wet plates

    Joni Sternbach - surfing, tin type and wet plates

    I'm Andrew Walmsley and welcome to a landmark episode of photography insights.  Yes we are now on show 150, so much has happened in the 3 years I've been doing this. We have all been through dark times but it's great to see life in the UK working its way back to normal.  It really has been an emotional time recently and I can feel it with my guests and myself too.  I admire the courage it's taken everyone to keep going, especially in a fragile industry like art, so well done all and keep fighting away.



    Today I would like to introduce Joni Sternbach, an artist, photographer and filmmaker from the USA. We had speaking a long time ago about coming on and Joni reached out recently so was pleased to have a lady on for this episode. Joni has a keen interest in surfing and shoots this using large format cameras using the tin type process.  It's an amazing thing to be doing with such large cameras, requiring everything darkroom related to be with you and taken back too.



    She talks to us about her experience over a few decades, around the theme of surfing, the people and surf boards. Joni's experience come from shooting other genres too light street which are really work checking out (though we didn't have time to discuss). Luckily we also fit some time to discuss the world of abandonment and why we love it.



    So in this one:


    abstract
    female perspective
    surfing
    change
    learning with your husband
    16 x 20 cameras
    Quinn Jacobson

    Sarah Manriquez - boudoir, homeless & safety

    Sarah Manriquez - boudoir, homeless & safety

    I'm Andrew Walmsley and welcome to episode 149 of photography insights.  This is the show that goes behind the scenes and interviews people from the world of photography.  



    Today I'm pleased to talk with Sarah Manriquez, a friend of Jason Lazrus and Kat Reichert from the Fairbanks university in Alaska.  It's a tale of boudoir, homeless and safety.  Boudoir in the sense of her fabulous fine art project photographing a classic era of the past.  Safety in the sense of working as a model and working with others.  Jason recommended Sarah because of her work around the homeless.  It's an amazing project based on helping others have a platform to show what its like.  Through her "genesis" and "through our eyes" we talk about a lady called Felicia, her new life and where she has come from. It's thought provoking work, deeply personal to Sarah and something that needs the eye of the masses.



    Anyway, I don't want to give too much away, so lets just highlight a few topics we discussed:


    xylene process
    film noir
    risks
    bloom project
    visiting professors
    homelessness
    point and shoot cameras
    effects of covid

    I wanted to share with you some feedback from a couple of recent guests. Here is a recent Facebook one from Kathleen Dreier

    "Andrew Ian Walmsley is a gem of a human being. He takes great care to research the work of his guests, asking engaging questions that allow the person being interviewed to look at themselves and their work even more deeply. Andrew is sensitive, genuinely interested, and easy to speak with. Even though I was across the world from him, I instantly felt like I was sharing a living room space a good friend. I think Andrew should be wildly supported for his efforts to showcase the work of photographers from around the world. He is lovely."

    I will share another next weeks too.

    I wanted to share with you some feedback from a couple of recent guests. Here is a recent Facebook one from Robert Dash

    "Andrew is a thoughtful, friendly person with a great passion for all things photographic. He has the rare trait of wanting to seek out a wide range of artists, approaches, and techniques to help him broaden his understanding of the field, and to share that understanding with others. Andrew does his homework when he prepares for his podcasts. I enjoyed the container he set during our conversation, which allowed for stories and new ideas to emerge. Keep on blogging, Andrew--you're creating quite a valuable collection!"

    I will share others in following weeks to, as it makes me feel very proud and humbled (and a few tears too).

    Robert Dash - blueberries, micrographs & montages

    Robert Dash - blueberries, micrographs & montages

    My name is Andrew Walmsley and your listening to episode 147 of photography insights.  This is the photography podcast that interviews people from the photography world.



    We change our thought process and stance on photography fields today.  After speaking with Michael Snyder a few weeks ago I wanted to start exploring another subject that really interests me - science.  Robert Dash is in his 6th decade as he calls it; he’s an educator, naturalist and photographer from the USA. He has had many exhibitions, been published in National Geographic and even spoke at Ted-x!

    Robert piqued my interest after looking at the Blue Earth Alliance, a great not-for- profit organisation. They serve as a pass-through organisation for tax-exempt contributions in support of environment-related photography projects. Robert is a very experienced person and talks about his love of the environment, climate and nature.  He provides information on his process when working with food and talks about his childhood memories of turning over rocks and spotting mother nature herself.





    In this one we discuss:


    climate change
    presenting food
    finding publishers
    macro, micrograph & montage
    food conservation
    travelling exhibitions
    focus stacking

    Of course stay to the end for our random questions, so find out why we need St Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band!

    Robert also advises everyone to watch "kiss the ground" on Netflix and Albatross by Chris Jordan

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.
