TFL 035 - Back in a (new) Black

Guess I was wrong last episode to say This Photo Life was stopping... We're back and (I think) better than ever! :) This week it's photo news and views on the recently released Nikon Z 50mm & 14-24mm lenses, Sony's new A7c full frame, Fujifilm and thieir bokeh-licious 50mm f1.0 lens, and more. Also catching up on what I've been shooting and keeping busy with my photography, there's now a video feed of this episode at youtube.com/andymcphoto and facebook.com/andymcphoto to help (but isn't required) on that and I hope helps your photography.

TFL 034 - When You're at the End

What better to discuss and muse about for the last episode of this podcast than what to do when things end? From being aware of your work enough to evaluate if things should carry on, what priorities to consider if you're at that crossroads, and what we can take from these efforts even once they wrap up (or evolve into the next work). Also and to not leave you photo-podless, a listing of legendary pods (linked below) that you better damn well already know or soon check out towards a better photo life. Enjoy and thanks for listening! :) Andy Links Andy McSweeney Photography Andy McSweeney on Youtube (be sure to subscribe if enjoyed!)

TFL 030 - Coping with Coronavirus in Brugge (guest starring Mrs Andy)

As a photo tour operator and commercial photographer here in Brugge since 2012... I **definitely** noticed the Coronavirus / COVID-19 situation here big time to say the least. I talk about the situation as the exclusive topic this week, even got the wife in to ask the questions so it wouldn't get too monologue-y not to mention keep things smiling in this very tough moment of my photo life. https://phototourbrugge.com and use the code "thisphotolife" on checkout for -15% Latest updates for Coronavirus in Brugge: https://www.visitbruges.be/en/coronavirus-covid-19-update

TFL 029 - Clik-Tripping with Suzanne Porter

This episode we chat with Suzanne Porter about her fascinating journey in photography, from her NGO humanitarian shooting globally (with an emphasis on Africa) before settling down in Morocco to open her photo tour in Marrakesh in 2009. The story certainly doesn't stop there: in 2019 she started Clik-Trip.com as a currated directory of photo workshops for the traveling shutterbug to find the best tours and workshops. We go deep into all that and more including on street portraiture in strange lands, lovely lady with an amazing story to tell beyond her photos, I feel the same with her Clik Trip work and a pleasure to sit down with to hear her story.

TFL 028 - Poop Happens, Cameras & Crowds & Costumes

A slightly delayed episode release thanks to things going slightly to poop... So we talk about that in photography and otherwise. Also, some thoughts from the recent Costumes in Bruges event on event photography and managing crowds of cameras both crazy or casual.

TFL 027 - Keeping it Loose for 2020, Nikon & Canon gear talk from CES, What's in the box...

Welcome to 2020 everyone, we're back on This Photo Life and couldn't be happier after time off for holiday at home in Montreal and then (properly haha) with the wife & dog in Brugge. This ep is about staying loose and relaxed as well as some gear news from Canon & Nikon as they released the Canon 1D X III and Nikon d780 respectively at the 2020 CES event in Las Vegas. Then a little "mystery box" magic to wrap up the show, back in 2 weeks with an interview and much more over the year ahead...

TFL 026 - Gear news & views, Photo editing Q&A, Going on break

Apologies from Andy for the semi-great delay getting this one out, busy at work and even enough that it gets talked about at top of the show. After that it's gear news (Sony Nikon & Fujifilm) and my salty opinions on what's new there, then for the Q&A it's talk of editing software (free and paid) to round out the episode...
