EP96 Don’t Let Habit Hold You Back!

Photographers – or, more precisely, photography trainers –  talk about muscle memory – creating habit and comfort in what you do.  But have you ever thought it might hold you back? In this caffeine-fueled, ble...

EP94 Stop Being Your Own Personal Troll!

Ever wondered if you’re your own worst enemy? Your very own, personal, TROLL?  Well, stop it at once!  It really isn’t helping! I mention a couple of things in this podcast – here are the links for the curious...

EP93 It Doesn’t Matter HOW You Do It!

So why do people think it’s OK to criticise HOW you do something?  In this episode, I am more or less muttering about something that is prevalent in our industry: snobbishness about how you create your images ra...

EP91 Happy New Year? Let’s Hope So!

I think I recorded the previous episode on a cold, crisp day.  Well, the cold has remained, but instead of ‘crisp’ it is now grey, gloomy and damp (though quite how it is still damp when the temperature is hover...
