In this episode Glyn and Dave talk about forgiveness. Sounds pretty serious, but it’s not. It’s just about not harbouring grudges, letting things go that hold you back or distract you, moving on and making more positive decisions in life and business.
This week we interview a man who, without his generosity, we would not be making this podcast. Zack was instrumental in Glyn following the path he did in 2009 which eventually led to us meeting in 2010. Catching up with Zack 10 years on he opens up about life as a photographer and reveals the truth about the real world of a working photographer and some harsh truths we all experience, how to get out of that funk and keep going. It’s one of our most honest and revealing interviews.

In this bonus episode Dave sits down with Jonny Sullens from Future Events, he is the man behind The Photography Show held each year, now in its 6th, at the NEC Birmingham. But how did the show come about after Focus running a photography show there for over 20 years? There’s a lot you’ll discover about how a show that brings in over 30k attendees comes together and how it can grow and develop each year to give us a better show. Please excuse the audio, we were in a room with some echo which caused some levels issues

Free is a conversation, not an assumption
This week’s episode may be a tiny bit controversial but it’s meant to make us all evaluate why and when we expect something to be free, or considering why you have that expectation. Not having budget isn’t always a reason, it’s sometimes an excuse. Let’s all start valuing each other in the industry and keep the respect at a premium! Dave and Glyn discuss examples and situations they been involved in and look at the design and photography industry seperately and together, why do we have to deal with the assumptions we’ll work for free or expect others too. We’d love to hear your experiences and examples of why and why not, tell us about your successes or failures.
