Ep.72 Staying Positive In These Weird Times

Ep.72 Staying Positive In These Weird Times

March 23, 2020

 

Well, in just one week things have changed incredibly rapidly! But we're stocked up, we have each other and we are staying positive.  Together we can get through this thing.

So, for a while at least, the podcast will be shorter and (hopefully) more frequent. That way I might just be able to keep up with the latest news!

Stay safe and be kind to yourself.  Oh, and be kind to others too.

Ep.71 First And Foremost, First Impressions

Ep.71 First And Foremost, First Impressions

March 15, 2020

During a conversation the other day, a visiting photographer to the studio passed a comment about the frames he displayed in the entrance to his own studio.  This one, short, passing comment, led me to the obvious observation that first impressions count.  And, importantly, you cannot have a second go at it.

But everyone knows that right?  Of course.  So I thought I'd take a walk through our studio here to see if we live up to that very same ideal that I so often advise others.

Listen to the podcast to see if our clients' initial impact when arriving at the studio is everything I think it should be!

During the podcast I mention the one-on-one workshops we run here at our studio, right in the heart of our little village.  More details can be found at https://www.paulwilkinsonphotography.co.uk/photography-workshops/

Enjoy!

Ep.66 It’s January And It’s A Studio Revamp

Ep.66 It’s January And It’s A Studio Revamp

January 14, 2020

We are already 2% of the way through 2020.  0.02 of 2020.  Go figure.  

I've used that time so far to grab tools, some wood and to hack away at our studio - goodness knows it (and me) needed it.  It's a long time since I've drawn up engineering drawings and I am, honestly, loving every second.

Oh, and I've been creating pictures too. So you didn't need to worry that I had retired the cameras.  They're just having a breather.

Enjoy!

Ep.39 - Interview With David Calvert

Ep.39 - Interview With David Calvert

January 22, 2019

In this episode, it is my great pleasure to interview renowned photographer David Calvert FMPA FBIPP who is not only a wonderful photographer, but a true gentleman in the industry as well!

The conversation talks about his passion for portraits, how he first became a photographer, his aversion to debt (he learned that the hard way) and how he came to photograph a family's pet dog that had already ceased to be. There are many useful nuggets in here - about anxiety, running a photography business and how getting qualified can help negate your insecurities.

During the interview he mentions a couple of photographers - notably David Bailey and Patrick Lichfield - and refer's to Lichfield's book The Most Beautiful Women which was published back in 1981. If you're curious, you can buy a secondhand copy of the book for just a few pounds on Amazon UK.

Ep.18 On Whether You Need A Studio

Ep.18 On Whether You Need A Studio

June 17, 2018

It's a question we're often asked: "Do you need a studio to succeed [in portrait photography]?" I am not sure there is one, single, satisfactory answer to that question but, well, you know I have to try.  In this podcast I describe the setup we have here, the setup we used to have (a converted garage) and, prior to that, how I survived without a studio at all.  Do you need one? Have a listen and see if you agree with me.
