It was only through their ongoing work did I notice her unique photography.  We soon get in touch and boy did we hit it off, like old friends.  Just like in life it’s not every week you really connect with someone.  But Sheri was really different, we enjoy a mutual hobby (you will hear about it) and it’s so nice to continue messaging each other.  So who knows for the future!</p><br /> <p>From her interview you will realise her work is about trial and error, Sheri looks at her edits and can throw them out.  It’s about going back over your work until you like it.  We even discuss it&apos;s not just about looking at single images but a body of work.  Sheri has been in a few shows including the polaroid collection.</p><br /> <p>So in this one we discuss:</p><br /> <ul><br /> <li>shooting strangers<br><br /> </li><br /> <li>slide film<br><br /> </li><br /> <li>why instant film<br><br /> </li><br /> <li>science fiction<br><br /> </li><br /> <li>surveillance<br><br /> </li><br /> <li>influences and processes<br><br /> </li><br /> <li>social media<br><br /> </li><br /> <li>television shows<br><br /> </li><br /> <li>technology development<br><br /> </li><br /> <li>how to become an artist<br><br /> </li><br /> <li>Sheri’s book</li><br /> </ul><br /> <p><br></p><br /> <p><strong>Article</strong></p><br /> <p>Before we move on I would like to thank my friends of the show.  For those who follow my writing, you will notice a recent <a href="https://phlogger.co.uk/a-snapshot-into-large-format-a-look-at-chroma-cameras-latest-offering/">article</a> about Steve at Chroma camera.  Recently he sent me his “snapshot” camera to try out.  My article is all about a moron trying to work large format and not just produce multiple exposure shows!  Yes, thats right i made a few mistakes, but i’ve included my thoughts on the camera and also some shots that did come out, home developed by me too.<br><br /> </p><br /> <p><strong>Links</strong></p><br /> <p>Sheri Website - <a href="https://www.sherilynnbehr.com/">https://www.sherilynnbehr.com/</a></p><br /> <p>Sheri Instagram - <a href="https://www.instagram.com/photographywithoutpermission/">https://www.instagram.com/photographywithoutpermission/</a></p><br /> <p><br></p><br /> <p><strong>Friends</strong></p><br /> <p>For all your c41 developing needs - <a href="https://filmdev.co.uk/">https://filmdev.co.uk/</a></p><br /> <p>Great and affordable zines from Static Age - <a href="https://www.staticage.co.uk/">https://www.staticage.co.uk/</a></p><br /> <br /> --- <br /> <br /> Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/photography-insights/message Phlogger (Andrew Walmsley) 1:20:23 Alejandro Ilukewitsch – travel & street photographer https://phlogger.co.uk/alejandro-ilukewitsch-travel-street-photographer/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=alejandro-ilukewitsch-travel-street-photographer Wed, 11 Nov 2020 20:00:00 +0000 http://6dc1b89f-dfbd-4a17-9f5f-3968a687f95e https://phlogger.co.uk/alejandro-ilukewitsch-travel-street-photographer/#respond https://phlogger.co.uk/alejandro-ilukewitsch-travel-street-photographer/feed/ 0 <p>Interviewing a travel photographer like my next guest was really easy, well that’s how it felt.  Alejandro or “Alex” as he calls himself was born in Venezuela but has also lived in Mexico, Brazil, Germany, and now Romania.  Along these travels, he has fallen in love with travel photography & street portraiture to showcase culture.

simple.  it would be great to hear of you doing this too.  Remember karma everyone, do something nice for someone and feel positive.</p><br /> <p>So this podcast is all about Ben’s pursuit of happiness with multi-exposure and his human nature project.  It’s a learning journey and he talks to us about the technical and conceptual aspects too, so very useful.</p><br /> <p><br></p><br /> <p>So in this one we discuss:</p><br /> <ul><br /> <li>multi-exposure<br><br /> </li><br /> <li>background choices<br><br /> </li><br /> <li>shooting Xpan<br><br /> </li><br /> <li>studio vs home sessions<br><br /> </li><br /> <li>negative space vs busy backgrounds<br><br /> </li><br /> <li>cyanotypes<br><br /> </li><br /> <li>photograms<br><br /> </li><br /> <li>hong kong restrictions<br><br /> </li><br /> <li>zines<strong><br><br /> </strong></li><br /> </ul><br /> <p><strong>Other Links</strong></p><br /> <p>We discuss the beginning of cyanotypes with (botanist) Anna Atkins with her book on plant life.</p><br /> <p><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_Atkins">https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_Atkins</a></p><br /> <p>Chris Relander -

He’s got some top-secret plans he’s working on and has an interesting future ahead of him.  I love his passion for pushing film, controlling contrast and grain.</p><br /> <p>What’s interesting about James lab (zone imaging lab) is you can choose the developer!  He even has explanations on his website what each one does.  I think this is a great unique selling point and makes him stand out.</p><br /> <p>In this one:</p><br /> <p>- spending 3 hours with a reel</p><br /> <p>- light leaks</p><br /> <p>- custom pushing technique</p><br /> <p>- increasing negative density</p><br /> <p>- epilepsy</p><br /> <p>- career choices</p><br /> <p>- trying new developers</p><br /> <p>- pyro 510</p><br /> <p>- beta testing XTOL killer</p><br /> <p><br></p><br /> <p><strong>Random questions</strong></p><br /> <p>having a pint with James Bond and James chooses a strange superpower.</p><br /> <p><br></p><br /> <p><strong>Links:</strong></p><br /> <p>We discuss a few of the characters from facebook forums including  Rüdiger Hartung and Daniel Keating</p><br /> <p>Lab website - <a href="https://www.zoneimaginglab.co.uk/about">https://www.zoneimaginglab.co.uk/about</a></p><br /> <p>Facebook - <a href="https://www.facebook.com/james.nguyen.7">https://www.facebook.com/james.nguyen.7</a></p><br /> <p><br></p><br /> <p><strong>Friends of the show</strong></p><br /> <p>Recently I&apos;ve shared some of the work brought to us by Static Age.  It&apos;s great to see Pete at Static Age is bringing more photographers zines to us.  The most recent is called "cooking with gas" by Brandon Lasko.  It&apos;s available now and only £7.</p><br /> <p><a href="https://www.staticage.co.uk/product-page/cooking-with-gas-by-brando-lasko">https://www.staticage.co.uk/product-page/cooking-with-gas-by-brando-lasko</a></p><br /> <p>Other friends are:</p><br /> <p>Do check them out - <a href="https://filmdev.co.uk/">https://filmdev.co.uk/</a></p><br /> <p>Chroma Camera - <a href="https://chroma.camera/"> https://chroma.camera/</a></p><br /> <p><br></p><br /> <br /> --- <br /> <br /> Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/photography-insights/message Phlogger (Andrew Walmsley) 1:10:11 Interview with legendary skate photographer – Grant Brittain https://phlogger.co.uk/interview-with-legendary-skate-photographer-grant-brittain/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=interview-with-legendary-skate-photographer-grant-brittain Wed, 30 Sep 2020 20:00:00 +0000 http://398b6d88-363d-4223-8e44-49d6e824bdaa https://phlogger.co.uk/interview-with-legendary-skate-photographer-grant-brittain/#respond https://phlogger.co.uk/interview-with-legendary-skate-photographer-grant-brittain/feed/ 0 <p>Welcome to episode 103 of photography insights, the shot that interviews people from the photography industry.

It’s funny how I look back over the past hundred episodes and still cannot believe some of the names and talent I’ve managed to interview. <p>Welcome to episode 103 of photography insights, the shot that interviews people from the photography industry.</p><br /> <p>It’s funny how I look back over the past hundred episodes and still cannot believe some of the names and talent I’ve managed to interview.  Each year of my photography seems like how do I beat last year.  Then all of sudden you get a reply from a legendary photographer and they say sure, let’s do it.  It’s times like this I’m still amazed that people that have so much experience are willing to spend some time talking to me.  It’s a very humbling experience I can tell you, and yes I still get nervous but this soon dissipates.  In fact, for those who come back regularly, I suspect you will notice this with guests.  After 15 minutes they might slow their speaking down and start laughing etc, but after 60 they are totally relaxed and like 2 friends are talking.  Well, that&apos;s what I try to do and hope its conveyed.  It’s an important skill when interviewing.  Anyway, where was I?</p><br /> <p>So yes because of COVID you are lucky enough to listen to the one and only skateboarding photography legend Grant Brittain!  It’s a true honor to have a man with many years of experience behind him.   For these sorts of interviews, I just couldn’t fit in my random questions, in fact, I had to edit this down just to get it where it is now.  So I know this is a long one, so feel free to skip forward.  But listening back to Grant was such a pleasure and we spoke over 3 hours in the end.  Let me tell you, this does not happen very often.  I try to edit what I believe you want to hear but can only do my best.</p><br /> <p>There is not much that needs saying about Grant, to be honest, just google his name, check Instagram, etc.  what was really nice, as he has a great reputation in the industry too as a kind person.  He did not disappoint too, as we talk from his roots in photography, through skating, the magazines, and working freelance now.  It’s a hell of a journey  and in the words of Grant "<em> All wanted  to do was surf, skate & smoke pot"</em></p><br /> <p><br></p><br /> <p>So in this one, we cover:</p><br /> <ul><br /> <li>going back to old shots</li><br /> <li>liking out of focus</li><br /> <li>shooting for layouts</li><br /> <li>embracing digital change</li><br /> <li>photographers eye collective</li><br /> <li>sleeping on pool tables + in darkrooms</li><br /> <li>getting out corporate feel</li><br /> <li>magazine industry</li><br /> <li>ethos of skaters</li><br /> <li>archives + COVID</li><br /> <li>cameras, cameras cameras</li><br /> <li>why grant doesn’t develop</li><br /> </ul><br /> <p><br></p><br /> <p><strong>Friends of the show</strong></p><br /> <p>I have discussed David from FilmDev in this show and how he&apos;s developed all my 120 colour work for a few years.  Great work guaranteed and as an example, he only charges £4 for small files with delivery & TIFF&apos;s!

 During COVID it’s been great to get to the weekend and relax with a couple of beers (obviously you all should drink in moderation like me).  After a recent delivery from Beer52 I looked through the Ferment magazine and noticed some interesting articles.  This work led me to the author behind the work - Matthew Curtis.  Matthew is a freelance photographer, blogger, podcaster, and now a magazine publisher!</p><br /> <p>It was really interesting to talk with someone who actively has an interest in great beer, but has the vocabulary to describe this.  Matthew really has understood how to use each medium (the written word, the spoken word, and photography).  He’s originally from my local area, so it’s nice to hear about his roots and also how traveling to breweries around the world has helped him.  Matthew doesn’t pull his punches and will tell you honestly about his work, mistakes, and his thoughts of some labels.</p><br /> <p>He talks to us about his magazine label - Pellicle, its beginnings, and how COVID has affected the brand and his life.  Matthew also talks about his roots in adult life and how he stumbled into photography.  He&apos;s now very experienced and works for a few brands and even helps teach others.  </p><br /> <p>In this one we discuss:</p><br /> <ul><br /> <li>magazines</li><br /> <li>how to get paid for writing</li><br /> <li>beer varieties</li><br /> <li>lactose intolerances</li><br /> <li>supporting local businesses</li><br /> <li>amazon vs online breweries</li><br /> <li>shooting fruit</li><br /> <li>learning editing</li><br /> <li>working with CAMRA</li><br /> <li>layout vs imagery</li><br /> <li>pride and North/South divides</li><br /> </ul><br /> <p><br></p><br /> <p><strong>Random questions</strong></p><br /> <p>Yes, Matthew eases his way through these and won&apos;t forget thinking about hitmen from now on!

By trade, his is a marine biologist but left that in Italy to work more in the field.</p><br /> <p>He’s an intelligent guy who can speak 3 languages and luckily one of them was English.  Lorenzo lives on the Dutch island of Bonaire in the Caribbean.

again something completely different.  You can see how my choice of guests is influenced by events and people around me!</p><br /> <p><br></p><br /> <p>Recently I have talked about the point of looking for with my guests and choosing them for a reason.  It&apos;s something that has played on my mind recently and how I should open up more.  The consensus in my mind (we had a vote) is that I should look for people that haven&apos;t had their voices heard from the minorities or speak to those that are trying to do great work for the society of those not privileged.</p><br /> <p><br></p><br /> <p>So today I&apos;m pleased to bring you the rather lovely Sheila Pree Bright.  Sheila is an ambassador for Leica, comes from America and has this habit of using the world of photography to talk about the world from a different perspective.  Some of her projects include Young Americans, 1960NOW, Suburbia, Plastic Bodies.  We talk a lot about the life of being black in America, opportunities and what she has seen.  Some of her travels around the states have even shocked her, so listen out for when we discuss Baltimore.</p><br /> <p><br></p><br /> <p>So in this one, we discuss:</p><br /> <ul><br /> <li>art piece for University of Boston</li><br /> <li>starting with gangster rap photography </li><br /> <li>1960 now + uprising of young people</li><br /> <li>civil rights</li><br /> <li>working for HBO</li><br /> <li>protests</li><br /> <li>flowers &COVID</li><br /> <li>white narrative vs black</li><br /> <li>John Lewis & your poetry</li><br /> <li>school curriculums</li><br /> <li>Migrations & segregations</li><br /> </ul><br /> <p><br></p><br /> <p><strong>FURTHER INFO</strong></p><br /> <p>We discussed Jim Crow</p><br /> <p><a

top of his game - Joel Tjintjelaar from Holland.  Joel&apos;s images are really outstanding and thought-provoking, based around his concepts of fine art.  His images are based around black and white (he explains why too) and usually involve long exposure.  Joel works in the world of architecture using both digital full-frame and large format film to produce high-end work for clients.  This involves him using Photoshop skills and teaching these too.</p><br /> <p><br></p><br /> <p>Joel comes from a different background to most, after a career in I.T. and being a qualified criminal lawyer.  If you look at his brand you can see blog articles, courses, critiques, guides, books and has a unique relationship with Hitech filters (has his own range of N.D. filters).  He&apos;s an intelligent person who perfects his skill through learning from other forms of art and reading a lot!  </p><br /> <ul><br /> <li>importance of studying painters + art</li><br /> <li>passion + defining fine art</li><br /> <li>learn about yourself</li><br /> <li>objects vs subjects</li><br /> <li>understanding Picasso</li><br /> <li>reading books</li><br /> <li>ideas, workflow & research</li><br /> <li>why black & white</li><br /> <li>teaching content not seen on the internet</li><br /> <li>tilt shift vs large format</li><br /> <li>16 stop ND filters</li><br /> <li>shooting Phase 1 with 100 megapixels</li><br /> </ul><br /> <p><br></p><br /> <p><strong>Random questions</strong></p><br /> <p>It was clear from talking with Joel before the interview he had a great sense of humour, so i put him through a couple.  So, find out why:</p><br /> <ul><br /> <li>the dutch like liquorice</li><br /> <li>Joel would enjoy 200 metres running</li><br /> </ul><br /> <p><br></p><br />

He talks to us about his life and is very passionate about this, so watch out for the odd swear word.</p><br /> <p><br></p><br /> <p>A few topics we discuss are:</p><br /> <ul><br /> <li>working with criminals + police</li><br /> <li>the West Bank</li><br /> <li>Journalism & privacy laws</li><br /> <li>Russian particle accelerators</li><br /> <li>Cancun, pyramids and jail<br /> <ul><br /> <li>shooting at "the body farm"</li><br /> <li>Robots & human fears</li><br /> <li>Queen & Bohemian Rhapsody</li><br /> <li>Forensic photography</li><br /> <li>Peruvian presidents</li><br /> <li>Medicine</li><br /> <li>Darkrooms and digital</li><br /> <li>COVID assignment + when not to shoot</li><br /> </ul><br /> </li><br /> </ul><br /> <p>Although we had a 2-hour conversation, I&apos;ve managed to cut some elements down to 1 hour, its not easy putting someone&apos;s career down into this amount of time.</p><br /> <p><br></p><br /> <p><strong>QUOTE</strong></p><br /> <p>“There is always a story, it doesn&apos;t matter when you arrive, stay open, be patient”</p><br /> <p><br></p><br /> <p><strong>LINKS</strong></p><br /> <p>Max recommends you visit his website to look at his work, but i&apos;ve put a link to his book here too.  It&apos;s work he did photographing what&apos;s inside us humans, graphic but beautiful.</p><br /> <p>National Georgraphic - <a href="https://www.nationalgeographic.com/contributors/a/photographer-max-aguilera-hellweg/">https://www.nationalgeographic.com/contributors/a/photographer-max-aguilera-hellweg/</a></p><br /> <p>Website - <a href="https://aguilerahellweg.com/">https://aguilerahellweg.com/</a></p><br /> <p>Book - <a href="https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sacred-Heart-Through-Invasive-Surgery/dp/0821223771/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=the-sacred-heart+max&qid=1593633660&sr=8-1">https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sacred-Heart-Through-Invasive-Surgery/dp/0821223771/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=the-sacred-heart+max&qid=1593633660&sr=8-1</a></p><br /> <p><br></p><br /> <br /> --- <br /> <br /> Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/photography-insights/message Phlogger (Andrew Walmsley) yes 1:05:59 Interview with street & editorial photographer Michelle Groskopf https://phlogger.co.uk/interview-with-street-editorial-photographer-michelle-groskopf/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=interview-with-street-editorial-photographer-michelle-groskopf Wed, 24 Jun 2020 19:00:00 +0000 http://371f2409-a5c6-41b5-b0f8-befe20f4490c https://phlogger.co.uk/interview-with-street-editorial-photographer-michelle-groskopf/#respond https://phlogger.co.uk/interview-with-street-editorial-photographer-michelle-groskopf/feed/ 0 <p>How do you introduce someone who is funny, forthright and totally committed to her role in society.  With some people its more than a job, it’s more than passion, it’s simply who you are.  Today’s guest is the one and only Michelle Groskopf, a street and editorial photographer from Los Angeles.
