Friday Photowalk Podcast-Part Two

Photography Daily with Neale James

Joyed to share the second part of a great chat with Neale on the new season of the Friday Photowalk.

Wreath-laying ceremony at the memorial khachkar (a carved Armenian Stone Cross memorial sculpture) took place after a remembrance service and prayer of intercession, to commemorate the 105th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide of April 24th, 1915, when 1.5 Million Armenians were massacred by the Ottoman Empire. A member of the clergy swings a censer (a type of thurible) of incense. The usual wreath laying ceremony at The Cenotaph, attended by hundreds, was cancelled this year due to the COVID 19 lockdown and instead took place on church grounds.

The new season has a fresh, new approach to podcasting and I hope you can listen throughout. If you’d like to jump straight to my segment, skip forward to 00:54:51 minutes. I’m discussing my passion for photography, street photography, wedding photography, shooting video and a new hobby I started during lockdown which has led to an entirely new genre of photography for me! I would urge you to listen to the entire episode though as it’s very enjoyable and informative.

DataColor Webinar Recording

Reportage & Street Photography

For those who couldn’t join in live on my webinar earlier this week, courtesy of DataColor, here’s a recording of the webinar. It lacks the Q&A which went on for around 30 minutes after, so feel free to post questions here instead.

Audio for Video Webinar

With RØDE Microphones and Scan

I did a live webinar a short while ago with Jonathan Burrows for the fabulous folks at Scan and Source Distribution, talking about how I use Rode Microphones in my film making. If you’re not familiar with Scan, I can’t recommend them highly enough for all your computer component and peripheral needs; I’ve been using them for well over a decade!

The webinar is in two parts; hope you find it useful 🙂 To view the films mentioned in the webinar, please visit www.teravision.eu

I’m pleased to say that I’ll be at The Photography Show from March the 1st to the 4th, 2014, at the NEC in Birmingham, UK.

I shall be giving talks at the Olympus stand (G30, Hall 2) in their purpose built seminar room. Places are limited for each talk, and although the talks are free, make sure you stop buy and collect a ticket to reserve a place. I’ll be sharing my experience with the OM-D E-M1 and the new super sharp Olympus 25mm f1.8 lens (along with the Olympus 14-40mm f2.8PRO and 45mm f1.8), on a recent trip to Los Angeles and sharing pictures and video of my reportage during the trip.

I shall be showing a lot of images that’ll be shown for the first time at the show, along with a multimedia video combining photographs and video (all shot on the E-M1) along with audio; this will also be the first time this is shown. It’s going to be a visual delight! Come and see the LA Diary!

I shall be at the Snapperstuff stands (H60 and J60, which are opposite each other in Hall 12) the rest of the time, showing and talking about my favourite bags from Think Tank Photo. I’ve been using these bags for well over seven years now and have taken them on assignment all over the world. If you have any questions about the range, or just want to talk photography or gear, pop by.
