    Fashion & Advertising Photographer
     
    Welcome to Episode 30 where I dive into the mind of James Nader, a super creator in the Fashion & Advertising world.
    James has photographers many Calendars in many beautiful locations with many celebrities, his location work is just so powerful and impactful.
    As well as talking to him about his photography and location work James also has a great knowledge and insight into the business side of marketing yourself online, and this is where he shares how important it is to get on top of your SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) for your business and company to get found online.
    We talk how the business and industry has changed, dive deep into some of his personal Fine Art projects and shoots, and talk about where his journey will take him next.
    We discuss the problems shooting on location can throw up and what you have to do to get around it, why you have to be careful when shooting abroad and the risks it can carry when your clients don’t have all the right permits or concepts.
    What does a 27 day calendar shoot on location feel like?
    James shares his fears about studio lighting and why he prefers mother natures light and even continuous light. How you can capture amazing results with the cheapest of equipment, and outline why you don’t need to buy the most expensive equipment to get the best results.
    I hit him with our infamous ’10 question Quick fire round’, listen to how he does in this one!

    Episode 29 Neale James Documentary Wedding Photographer

    Episode 29 Neale James Documentary Wedding Photographer

    Episode 29 Neale James Documentary Wedding Photographer
    Welcome to Episode 29 where we speak with the super talented smooth talking Documentary Wedding Photographer who's shot nearly 900 weddings so far! Neale is also film maker, voice over artist and Podcasting demon Neale James.
    Neale originally came from the glorious world of Radio, where he and his smooth mellow voice graced the airwaves of Radio 1 for many years.
    We have to say Neale is one talented and very busy man, he’s a busy documentary wedding photographer, a voice over artist, and he also runs 2 podcasts. One of which many of you will know as the Fujicast, which he hosts with his fellow partner in crime, and Fujifilm X Photographer Kevin Mullins.
    On top of that still manages to host a daily podcast called ‘Photography Daily Podcast’ and even edits podcast shows for others.
    We don’t know how he does it!
    There’s no way we can cover all of Neale’s exploits in one podcast, so in this episode we try to understand a little about Neale and his work as a Documentary wedding Photographer.
    We get the low down on how many weddings he photographs, how he does it, why he does it, and persuade him to share some of his methods and secrets, of his business and shooting techniques.
    Of course we cover what kit he’s using for all his work, and also explore his ‘Photofilm’ product which he put together many years ago, and find out why it’s such a success!
    Don’t forget, we have our fun mid show ‘Rapid Fire Round’, where we put Neale on the spot for a quick fire 10 questions, that may not always relate to photography and can also have some very bizarre answers..
     
    You can see and listen to all of Neale’s work on the links below.

    Episode 28 Benjamin Von Wong Photographer, Activist, Visual engineer, Hyper realist story teller

    Episode 28 Benjamin Von Wong Photographer, Activist, Visual engineer, Hyper realist story teller
    This week we get deep, but very meaningful with the creative mind of Canadian Artist, Photographer, Activist, Visual engineer and surreal hyper realist story teller Benjamin Von Wong.
    Ben is an amazing creative who’s journey has included creating mind blowing surreal images using fire & water to photographing underwater with sharks to very meaningful environmental art installations and images that certainly come with a BIG message about our planet.
    Von Wong is known for his big impact super creative photoshoots and art installations, his behind the scenes images and videos share everything about his projects for all to see, and some of them are mind blowing. We learn that a lot of his early projects were all about creating the image and collaborating with like minded creatives, about his passion which shows in his continued commitment.
    Wayne & Jake talk with Ben about how his path on creating art has changed and shifted parallels over the years. How his direction has changed considerably and where will his journey take him next.
    We chat about some of his past creative projects which include amazing imagery where he photograph’s the staff of smugmug as super heroes on the edge of tall skyscrapers to creating “’The parting of the Plastic Sea” Strawpocalypse’ a ‘Guinness World Record’ environmental art piece using 168,000 used straws.
    Ben’s creative mind is out of this world, his concepts are amazing and his skill to bring these projects and art installations together, using the help of volunteers, is unparalleled.
    We could talked with Von Wong for hours, but as you know an episode can only be so long, that said we certainly look forward to catching up with Ben again in the future to see where his journey takes him next.
    If you’re not familiar with Ben Von Wongs work then head over there now and be prepared to be enlightened.

    Episode 27 Elisabeth Hoff Fashion Beauty Photographer Director & Art Director
     
    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.

    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!

Dave Schick ,

Best Podcast

I've been inspired by both Wayne Johns and Jake Hicks is the past couple years. They're great dudes, and are super amazing creative people.

Podlamania is something I have come to look forward to.

The content so far (Ive listened to all episodes as of Dec 2018) is absolutely wonderful.

I think Podlamania is filling a void in the podcast industry, because there aren't many podcasts like it.

Plus, Podlamania is a great name. It just.. rolls off the tounge.

Looking forward to the next thousands of episodes!

Matt Seidel ,

Quality Content!

Really enjoying this podcast. Great insight from two world-class photographers. Cheers.
