    Episode 141: Thom is traveling and Greg has a new editing business!

    Hey snappers - we managed to squeeze in an episode before Thom hits the road on his 6 month trip - but we promise we'll be recording as he goes as well. Today we chat about culling... it's the never ending saga of how to do it faster and easier and there are some compelling AI solutions that might be worth looking at. Also, Greg has a new business called Mountain Edits - www.mountainedits.com - which specialises in event and wedding photography editing.

    Episode 140: Greg's unpleasant wedding experience, and how to fix misfocused photos with AI

    Episode 140: Greg's unpleasant wedding experience, and how to fix misfocused photos with AI

    Hey Snappers!

    It's mid autumn here down under - perfect photographer weather. In episode 140 things get a little heavy; unfortunately Greg recently had a groomsman get a little too touchy feely with him (similar to what happened to Thom last year), making things pretty uncomfortable. In episode 140 we unpack this situation and try to figure out how we could better deal with this if it ever happens again.

    We also talk about the incredible Rimini AI, which uses artificial intelligence to repair blurry, out of focus images - it's quite incredible. Check out The Snappening facebook group for the image we refer to in this episode.

    Episode 139: Blurry photo trends and Greg's new Mac Studio

    Episode 139: Blurry photo trends and Greg's new Mac Studio

    Ok listen.

    Every wedding photographer has a different style. Our industry would be super boring if we all shot in the same way. BUT there are some trends that we at The Snappening just don't like, and one of them is that of intentionally blurry photos. What's up with that?!

    In episode 139 we rant a bit about this, like the pair of old men we are fast becoming. Greg then takes us through his new Mac Studio, which he absolutely adores.

Thom realises some of his wedding terminology wasn't as inclusive as he thought. We chat about best dual-camera harness on the market. And finally, do you want to sell more prints from your galleries? We give you our top tips!

    Episode 136: 8 hours vs 10 hours coverage - what's the sweet spot?

    Episode 136: 8 hours vs 10 hours coverage - what's the sweet spot?

    SORRY we have been so quiet, snappers! Both Greg and Thom are under the pump right now, with wedding season in full swing. All of 2021's covid postponements seem to have fallen in Feb and March so we're super busy shooting and editing! Greg even did 4 weddings in one day....

    Today we chat about the number of hours that makes a perfect amount of coverage. Thom reckons it's 8, while historically Greg has always shot for 10. In episode 136 we discuss how we spend this time on the wedding day - how long we're with each partner during prep, what time we finish. We also talk about ceremony times. SPOILER: if you're shooting weddings, you NEED to tell your couples what time to set their ceremony for - it's in your best interests!

How I Learned About Magpies lol

This podcast series is one of the most enjoyable - it feels like you’re listening in on a conversation with good friends. Although I’m based in the US and my focus isn’t wedding photography (although I have 2nd shot several weddings before), I find the material very fascinating and relatable. If you’re a professional full-time wedding photographer or just own a photography business, I imagine the information of the trade that they share is invaluable - sort of like participating in a message board of other wedding photography pros. The one takeaway I have from their podcast when I hear the stories of their dealings with clients that involve challenges, nightmares, heartwarming relationships, and/or funny incidents is this: despite being separated by country, culture, and accents, people are people everywhere.

Keep up the great job!

So raw. Much needed!

USA based wedding photographer here! Typically I prefer my podcasts straight to the point and I’m not a big fan of “waffling” as y’all say. However, the authenticity and humor in this banter has made it one of my favorites. I appreciate the dabbles of personal life (dogs vs cats), ideas of how to elevate the process (pros/cons of prints at weddings) and also the photographer banter (how to avoid guest tables at weddings.) Keep it up guys!

Stoked

Oddly enough, I have absolutely nothing to do with wedding photography. I shoot and film mostly BMX and skateboarding. I stumbled upon this podcast looking for reviews of the Sony A7iii; I’ve been hooked ever since. I not only love the knowledge that is put out, but also love the random tangents that occur. Thanks dudes 🤘🏼
