Kevin Mullins and Neale James present The FujiCast Photography Show, a podcast for professionals and enthusiasts alike. Featuring special photographer guests, gear reviews, Fujifilm camera tips and your questions.
No more corporate hamster wheel! & X100 heaven
Today we talk about sound being a vehicle for picture making, X100 'adapter gate' is born and lens hoods on that camera; are they worth the effort? We talk about unhappy customers and retirement, working into your 80s, preventing email from getting black listed, albums in 2021 and ask; "X100 or X-Pro?" Book of the week is Orchard Beach: The Bronx Riviera and we have the first of our Friends of the Show chats, featuring Steve Ford who gave up the corporate hamster wheel for travel adventure.
Calling FRIENDS OF THE SHOW and UFO capture?!
What settings would you use to capture the visit of a UFO? We also talk book design, the whisky camera shop, sensor cleaning on IBIS cams and ask is it the photographer who makes a camera shine? Advice for new doc wedding photographers, we talk SD cards, 3rd party lens set ups, the value of a weather sealed lens, film recipes, video mic suggestions and small scale printing. Kev’s book of the week is American Photographs by Walker Evans and we have an appeal for friends of the show to tell us YOUR stories.
Self publish YOUR stories and websites in an Instagram age
The boys are back in the studio! This week, embracing colour, the difference between recipes and presets, boxgate continues, we talk third party lenses, assisting the greats, whether we still need websites in an Instagram world, the catharsis of photography during Covid, getting back on the professional bike to shoot weddings and the 70-300mm lens; do I need it? Book of the week is, 'The year the world stood still' by Chris O’sullivan and Dan Milnor talks more about self publishing to us.
Dangling off the Brooklyn Bridge and shhh, new camera rumours?
We talk X-H2 rumours, internal ND filters and weather sealing; how good is the X100 range in rain and anyone for an XQ1? We introduce the concept of ‘gear identity crisis,’ talk about the perfect lens for photographing and cataloguing art, ponder whether to adjust bridal party attire for photographs, get excited about the new 18mm, HSL and talk about music for your films, slideshows and even podcasts.

The legendary David Hurn, and a Mullins James workshop!
Mullins is having teething problems in 'New Bunker Malmesbury' and Boxgate continues. We talk about leaf shutters and why they’re not in our X-Ts and Ps, how an X100S deals with being sent to the bottom of a swimming pool, Mullins’ decision to upsize during a pandemic and we have news of an upcoming Kev and Neale documentary wedding workshop. Also, questions about the term ‘weekend warriors,’ and two tier sensor cameras. This week’s book of the week is ’The 1960s’ by David Hurn and he’s also
The power of making one portrait every day + a Royal X-T3
‘Boxgate' lingers on, though Kev is more concerned by the boxes of Easter eggs he can squirrel away before the kids find them. Questions today include, do you befriend your clients, do women and men see differently, can the Fujifilm system cut it for pro work in the studio and are photographic eggs in one basket still a good idea post pandemic? Kev reveals the truth about his wedding earnings during the pandemic, we look at some tech specs of a particular Zeiss camera in order to talk about the camera of the future and muse over the 'Duchess of Fujifilm' and internal flash triggers. The book of the week is Raymond Depardon’s ‘Glasgow’ and Neale talks with John Mannell, the ‘Portrait per Day’ man about making street portraits and mental health.
Magnificent inspiring podcast
I’m not just saying this because Kevin and Neale are friends of mine, but the Fuji cast is entertaining, creative, and very inspiring. It’s always good to have them keep me company when I’m on the road exploring in the middle of nowhere. The guests all have different backgrounds and stories. It’s also fun to hear dialogue between the hosts and the creative sound effects. If you truly want to be inspired by photography and challenge yourself to think out-of-the-box, this is the podcast for you. Thanks Kevin and Neale!
Humorous, Insightful, Consistently Excellent
I happened upon this podcast at the very beginning and have listened to every episode since. Kevin and Neale are a great pairing, set apart by professional sound production, years of real-world experience as working photographers at the top of their game, and the relatable banter all-too-often missing from other shows.
Their format combines exceptional interviews with listener involvement and covers a wide range of topics relevant to any lover of photography, regardless of preferred kit.
I encourage you listen, as you won’t be disappointed!
I always look forward to this podcast. Very real guys with great information and entertaining banter. I follow Kevin’s work and his film simulations and photography guidance is priceless!
