    Photographing BEAUTIFUL MONSTERS and the perfect next X-Pro

    Photographing BEAUTIFUL MONSTERS and the perfect next X-Pro

    As Kev heads for sunnier climes we talk about life after weddings for Mullins Inc. as he counts down to his final nuptials gig, although he’s considering second shooting in a lomography style, maybe, perhaps. Also on the show, commercially and creatively making life simple, shooting professionally with the oldest digital cameras you can source, finding a replacement for the X-Pro3, what we’d like to see on an X-Pro4, the best camera system to switch into for fast moving monsters (or dogs), there’s some website advice from Kev, cleaning your camera with electrical contact cleaner (!) and hitting a mental brick wall creatively. We also have a book of the week and this one is a wonderful documentary about music photography by Robert Birnbach, called The Silence Between.

    Time to try film, or is it? And all hail the mighty Viltrox lens

    Time to try film, or is it? And all hail the mighty Viltrox lens

    Kev’s been doing what can only be described as speed-head-shooting, though his passion for country music is at last paying off as Neale eulogises about a Mullins favourite, Hank Williams. Also on the show, a shed-load of darkroom kit has turned up at Mullins HQ, the difference between dentists and photographers, using second shooters and assistants, going strength to strength with Viltrox, buying an X100VI alongside an X-T5, trying too hard and not feeling your picture making is improving, how tinnitus has cut short a career and how to photograph locations that aren’t necessarily so photogenic.

    HELP! Fujifilm flippy screens are driving me mad!

    HELP! Fujifilm flippy screens are driving me mad!

    Kev’s got extreme hay fever, which serves him right for cutting crop circles, and he’s considering his next photographic genre, which may just bring his love of martial arts and photography together. Today on the show, how powerful does your laptop have to be to handle GFX files? We have a strong case of flippy or tilty screen-gate, where one of our listeners has even been considering moving to Nikon to solve the problem, how to repair sticky buttons, is it worth sharing shooting data if you don’t have the context of the ambient lighting, and we have a book of the week from Gonzalo Mullen which highlights his photographic life between 2021 and 2023.

    Do I really need the VI, or will the X100V do?

    Do I really need the VI, or will the X100V do?

    Neale is celebrating 20 years of shooting weddings and planning for the next 20, whilst Kev counts down his final three! Or are they? However, he reveals some big judo plans! Questions and mails today on how to choose Fujifilm simulations when editing in Lightroom or X Raw Studio, whether it’s time to upgrade from the V to the VI in X00-land, a perfect lineup of lenses to cover all bases, thoughts about Nikon’s vintage flavoured Zf and content authenticity in this age of ai. There’s also some hot off-the-press Pic-time news.

    More chatter about the X-Pro4 and photographing from space

    More chatter about the X-Pro4 and photographing from space

    Kev tries his hand at horse photography at one of high society's biggest events, and Neale signs the boys up to set sail on a pirate radio ship. This week, the big Netflix shows currently being watched in the James and Mullins households, looking for a new professional photography career, do lenses need to be perfect or are some of the classics of the Fuji roadmap still a great investment, what’s the wait for a new X-Pro body all about, releasing a book of boudoir, a whisper of focusing issues after a latest X-series firmware update and dream photographic jobs.

    No more meetings, I’m becoming a photographer!

    No more meetings, I’m becoming a photographer!

    Kev’s been wrecking vans but all for a good cause, meanwhile Neale has announced(ish) his latest idea in a long line of ideas from the ideas factory. Today we talk about a Viltrox lens so impressive, it also doubles as a speed-radar(!), swapping back to Adobe products after a time away and why we prefer the tech ecosystem, keeping up with the latest software to edit X100VI files, seeing in black and white, to spot or to evaluate as Shakespeare didn’t actually say, turning pro, in-camera recipes for looks, X RAW Studio, brands logos and fonts and the twenty-two immutable laws of marketing, plus MORE long focal length primes please.

FujiFilm and Life

Sometimes I get burnt out in gear videos and this is a great place that mixes life with photography.

Jay Farrell Author ,

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!

Podcast Review

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!
