We had a little Summer break but we are back for the Autumn/Fall season with new guests lined up and a new show Partner – Phlearn.com. We have a right good old catchup, let you know what we’ve been working on and stuff that’s going to happen.
In this episode, Glyn shares an interview he did with World War 2 Veteran, Jack Ansell. Jack served with the Royal Corps of Signals for the entire duration of the War and was captured and held as a POW for 4 years being made to carry out forced labour. Jack celebrated his 100th Birthday shortly before this recording, and his story is one not of blood and gore, of which he clearly experienced, but one of human kindness and compassion at times you never would have imagined. This is a story of making the very best of a bad situation and a story of risk versus reward. Check out the 3945portraits.com website where Glyn has shared the video version of this interview too, along with the portraits taken of Jack.
This week, Glyn and Dave talk about the benefits of setting up and investing in a home print studio. What’s the best kind of gear, paper, inks and how to properly calibrate and set your profiles to get the best possible print every time. We also talk about framing and how to maximise your home printing investment. Plus some info about the upcoming 3945Portraits Exhibition and preparing print for the exhibition. Thank you for listening.

Paul is one of the nicest guys I have met, his studio and body of work is nothing short of incredible, creative, detailed and impactful.
