EP106 On Taking Pride In Everything You Do

In this episode, sponsored by Panasonic eneloop Pro Rechargeable Batteries, I am pondering on the difference between being ‘proud’ and ‘taking pride’ in everything you do.  A subtle but important distinction – particularly if you’re British and have been brought up that pride always comes before a fall! Some ideas about how to get around that familiar feeling of not wanting to brag about your images – tell the client how amazing they look instead!  Much more comfortable for us …

EP105 On Using Your Own Portfolio To Inspire YOU!

In this episode I’m back in the Land Rover Defender heading out to buy our evening’s supper: fish’n’chips!  We were due to go and sit on a hill side and eat them with a pint of beer but, sadly, the brassic weather has other ideas.  Instead, I am pootling through Midsommer Murders territory on a wet and wild Friday evening. In this episode, sponsored by Panasonic Eneloop Pro Batteries, I have an idea about how you might use your own …

EP104 On The Courage For Competitions

Well, this episode is recorded from my nearly-finished workshop which, while it is ultimately built for making things, also seems to have great acoustics!  That wasn’t a design choice but it makes for a coincidentally glorious recording studio! It’s great at the studio right now, as everything is opening back up and the business is returning to its familiar buzz.   This episode, sponsored by Panasonic Eneloop Pro Batteries, discusses entering and learning from image competitions: you cannot win if you …

EP103 On The Witchery Of Words (And The Power Of The Positive)

Have you ever wondered how just a few words can make your day or break your heart?  In this episode I ponder on how words are the backbone of portrait photography: during the shoot, they’re the only thing you have! From the minute your client arrives, to the moment you’re saying your goodbyes and waving them from your doorstep (you do actually make the effort to see them to their card don’t you?!), it’s your words and what you say …

EP102 On Leaving Lockdown And Loving To Laugh!

It’s been an amazing week and you can really feel the change in energy as the Covid lockdown is gradually eased.  Emails coming in, the phones are ringing, shoots are happening (rather than perpetually postponed) and in-person sales sessions are back and in full force! Yay! On the other hand, everything feels rusty, unfamiliar and slightly unnerving.  Weird. Getting back up to speed is going to be an exciting process for us here at the studio!  Every day is a …

EP101 Interview With Terrie & Colin Jones Of The Societies Of Photographers

After the last episode’s interview with Sarah (my one-and-only!), this week, I am talking to another husband and wife team – Terrie and Colin Jones from The Societies Of Photographers. I have been a very happy member of The Societies (when I joined it was still just The Society Of Wedding And Portrait Photographers – The SWPP) and so it so good to sit and chat – remotely I might add – with two of the nicest, hardest working people …

EP100 An Evening In With My Missus: My Favourite Place To Be!

Well, it’s been 99 episodes to date, and now this, the 100th!  Whoever thought we’d get to that milestone?  Well, it’s entirely down to you amazing people, our subscribers and the feedback we get: that and the cathartic effect of chatting about life as a professional portrait photographer. Over the past 99 episodes, some of my favourites have been the various interviews with many more to come, and there isn’t anyone I’d rather be chatting with than my amazing wife …

EP99 Who Buys All The Ugly Cars?

One from the Land Rover this week – I recorded it while heading over to photograph puppies at the Hearing Dogs UK Charity.  Tough gig huh? A bit of a rambly update, I admit, but the excitement of being out in the sunshine had taken hold. I was later to find that the sunshine belied just how cold it was!  That’ll teach me not to forget my coat!  Anyway, that was later.  In this podcast, there is a short update …

EP98 Keep It Simple

I admit this is a shorter episode than some – I am multitasking and getting prepped and rehearsed for the Graphistudio Live Lounge over the weekend – details can be found at https://www.graphistudio.com/en/accademia/ I’m on stage (as much as there is a stage of course) at 15:40 UK time (16:40 European time, 10:40 US Eastern) talking about shooting for album sales.  Would love to see you all there!  We could all go out for a drink at the bar afterwards… …

EP97 The Graphistudio Live Lounge – Interview With Jeremy Price

Things are definitely looking up! Today, I had my vaccine, and I cannot help but think things are (gradually) appearing more positive.  At the end of the day, vaccines are the only way out of the pandemic, so it feels good to not only have done my bit but also to see what an amazing job the NHS and all those volunteers are doing getting it out there – and it’s all being done with huge smiles and a ton …
