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.
New shiny toys and NEWSFLASH... We’re back on the road again!
This week Kev tries to remain very tight-lipped on the shiny new things Fujifilm has coming, the show is back on the road with an announcement for a London recording in June at the House of Photography - and you can claim your ticket. X-T4 or X-T2, what do I choose? Why Kev hasn’t been on YouTube so much of late, why you could/should consider shooting P mode, the pitfalls of shooting too much when it comes to the edit, how the magical Tascam audio gizmo works that we’ve been discussing, and more. This month’s guest is Fujifilm X-Photographer Kirth Bobb talking about social and street work and the book of the month is Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen’s Byker Revisited.
#223 Street photography, learning from the best featuring Matt Stuart
Kev is trapped in Malmesbury, no petrol, no heating, no oven even! Send pizzas now! We talk about seeing in black and white, what clients think of our ’smaller cameras’, the new miracle sound box from Tascam, having your camera converted for infrared and camera system looks; is there such a thing? BIG show news for an event coming up we’d love you to join us at, Kev sorts out some exposure lock problems and we talk about making pictures during times of crisis in the news. The extraordinary street photographer Matt Stuart is our guest and he also is the feature of Book of the Month with ’Think like a street photographer'.
Organisations. To join or not to join??? And Kev goes green with rage!
Today Kev gives wedding advice, but not necessarily the photographic kind. The last of the current weekly editions before the show reverts to a monthly from April. We talk about the monotony of some business tasks that sap the joy from creativity, forgetting clients’ names and raise the ‘Should you belong to an organisation or society’ question cautiously. We talk about settings for making video shooting out of the box, editing software, focusing issues, workshops and tech in cameras; is it getting just a little too clever? Get your questions in to email@example.com or through the private Facebook group.
Does Black and White make my pictures look more pro? Plus IMPORTANT SHOW NEWS!
There’s news to announce today about the show’s future! We also talk about the march of technology and ask; "Does it, de-skill photographers?" AI culling software - it’s here! How should I behave when I’m at a wedding with a camera? What films inspire us? Designing a new website, how multi-genre should it be? We talk perfect laptops for editing and choose a camera combo for working in environmental portraiture, plus ask if Facebook is a better place for your new blog. Our guest is Charles Brooks, back for part 2 of our discussion about making the most extraordinary pictures inside musical instruments.
What’s in the box? And can we have a movie camera, please?
A mysterious box shows up for Kev, is it, could it be the… (all will be revealed). One of the regular favourite discussions; we talk X-H2, add a video camera to the wish list and look ahead to a new sensor. We also answer questions on insurance for photographers, where to self-publish, what life experiences or courses have added value to our creative lives or outlook. Our guest is the remarkably talented photographer and musician Charles Brooks who makes pictures within instruments that are simply out of this world!
Will my camera float? And Kev’s in an Amazon Frenzy!
Neale is still considering whether to douse a Fujifilm camera in a bucket of water to test its water resistance, whilst Kev is keen to put anything with an Apple logo into that same bucket. We talk about Fujifilm making a film camera; is there a market? We discuss the possibility of the public now hiding from street photographers, favourite photographer documentaries and BEST value camera bags; it seems Kev may be responsible for Mr. Bezos’s fleet of yachts!
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!
Love the show content and banter. Only issue is with overdone sound effects. Neale, I know you are a radio guy, but sound effects are overdone and a detraction from an otherwise well done production. Stop it already!
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!
