My friend, and talented photographer, Bart Busschots, hosts the monthly “Let’s talk photography” podcast. I’ve been a guest several times and it is always a lot of fun and informative. Here are the episodes I’ve joined, but I would encourage you to listen to the complete library and future episodes.
August 2015: The timing of this month’s topic was perfect since I just spent two weeks at Twin Lakes. This month the panel discusses Shooting Vacations. The topics included how to include our friends and family in the photos, creating the story of our vacation, and finding time to spend with our passion for photography without incurring the wrath of unhappy family members.You can subscribe to the show on iTunes or directly from the page link
April 2015: This month’s topic is near and dear to me, landscape photography. The panel applied some of the general principles of composition we’ve discussed in past episodes to create interesting landscapes. Is there any truth to the value of shooting during the “golden hour?” What are some unique ways to turn an otherwise flat image into a story? It was a fun discussion.You can subscribe to the show on iTunes or directly from the page link
February 2015: We continued our conversation about learning to use your camera, talking about adjusting white balance, bracketing, bulb mode, and a bit more on focus modes. It was another fun and educational episode.You can subscribe to the show on iTunes or directly from the page link
January 2015: With the giving season freshly behind us, January seemed like the perfect month to start a two-part series on understanding our cameras. All our cameras, regardless of manufacturer, share the same basic groups of features – they all have different modes for metering light, focusing, and so on. In this first part, we focus mostly on exposure and focusing modes.You can subscribe to the show on iTunes or directly from the page link
December 2014: The holidays are upon us and they offer us a great opportunity to capture the joy of the season; the lights, family, winter, food, and more. That is the topic of discussion on the December episode of “Let’s Talk Photography” and I was happy to once again join in the conversation.You can subscribe to the podcast in iTunes or get the show directly from the Let’s Talk web page.Let’s Talk Photography: Episode 11 “Capturing the Holidays”
August 2014: I was happy to join the conversation again this month. In this episode we discuss sharing our photography in print and online. This subject is particularly interesting to me because I feel my photography improved dramatically when I began printing and exhibiting my art. In this episode, I share some of the techniques I use for printing and some of the avenues I’ve found to exhibit my work in galleries and shows.You can subscribe to the podcast in iTunes or get the show directly from the Let’s Talk web page.Let’s Talk Photography: Episode 11 “Sharing”
July 2014: I was a guest on the Let’s Talk Photography podcast for July. In addition to myself and host Bart Busschots, the panel this month includes Kenny Lee and Antonio Rosario from Switch to Manual. This is our first Listener Q&A show, and we answer questions from Scott & Allison about storing & organizing our photos, and white balance cards (Antonio recommends the WhiBal range of cards).

May 2014: I joined Bart Busschots, Antonio Rosario & Tom Martinez from Switch to Manual, and Ewen Rankin from the British Tech Network on the May edition of “Let’s Talk Photography”. The topic for the month is ‘Shooting Small Stuff’. There’s a whole other world out there if you look at the small scale, and you don’t need to spend money on expensive macro lenses to join in the fun! Listen Here.
February 2014: The 5th episode of Let’s Talk Photography is available. In this episode, we discuss the many ways that a photographer can get prepared before ever firing the shutter. Among the topics covered, we discuss simple preparations of the camera and equipment, researching to give yourself the best chance at the perfect shot, and preparing yourself for a day in the field.You can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes or download directly from the Let’s Talk web site http://www.lets-talk.ie/blog/?p=133
January 2014: The 4th episode of Let’s Talk Photography is available and I again had the pleasure to be a guest. Every creative person has hit a wall or entered a slump and looked for a way out or the inspiration to create something new. This week we discuss hitting a dry spell, hibernating in the winter, or otherwise needing some motivation to get back to creating images. It was a lively discussion and a lot of great ideas were discussed.You can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes or download directly from the Let’s Talk web site http://www.lets-talk.ie/blog/?p=121
November 2013: I was back on the 2nd episode of the Let’s Talk Photography podcast. Today the panel discussed what you can do to improve your photography. Beyond just “shooting more” which is necessary to advance your skills, we discussed productive sharing of images, expanding our scope, and building on lessons learned. The podcast does not focus on the tech and gear of photography but on the true art and craft of photography. It’s a lot of fun chatting with friends about a subject I love and along the way we hope to share our view of photography with the audience.You can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes or download directly from the Let’s Talk web site http://www.lets-talk.ie/blog/?p=85
October 2013: My friend, and talented photographer, Bart Busschots has started a new podcast “Let’s Talk Photography.” I was happy to join him as a guest on the inaugural episode where we talk about composition. Good composition can turn snapshots into images that tell a story, regardless of the gear you’re using. The conversation was a lot of fun and informative.
