RC is also an accomplised author woth books about Lightroom, Photoshop, HDR photography and more.

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.
Over the past year or so Drones such as the Phantom and Mavik Pro by DJI have received their fare share of bad press due to some irresponsible behaviour by the minority; however their popularity has far from diminished and their use becoming more and more widespread…and not just in the creative field.
In this episode Glyn chats with “Ian in London” whom he’d originally became aware of through YouTube. A self confessed ‘hobbyist’ Ian has developed a fast growing YouTube Channel where he covers all aspects of Drone use ranging from tips and best practice for successful flights and capturing stunning video and still images, do’s and don’t’s, travelling with drones, qualifications and much more.
Ian carries with him a wealth of knowledge gained through experience and as a CAA qualified (PfCO) Drone Pilot, so if you have a drone, are thinking of getting a drone or are simply curious, you’ll get lots from what he shares in this episode. A great guy with a great attitude, a willingness to share and true testament to how being consistent can lead to bigger things.
This week’s interview is with celebrity portrait and lifestyle photographer, Drew Gurian. Drew is New York based and working hard in one of the most competitive locations. We talk about Drew’s start in photography, working as Joe McNally’s assistant for 5 years and how he’s built a reputation and a business in a very tough industry, celebrity portrait photography.
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.
This week, Glyn and Dave chat about what’s been going on the past few weeks, teaching overseas, Glyn’s trip to Normandy for the D-Day anniversary events, the new veterans portrait project website and logo, Ricky Gervais and our favourite TV shows! Just some friendly chit chat between two mates.
This week we are joined by the Photoshop and Photography education powerhouse that is Mr Aaron Nace, the founder of online training platform PHLEARN. This was the first time we’d ever spoken to Aaron and he immediately felt like an old friend. We talk about the future of online education and innovation. This really was a great episode and a top interview. Check him out on the links below!
This week’s episode is all about communicating. Glyn and Dave have touched on elements of this before but this week they decided to revisit this subject after receiving multiple cut and paste communications when a more personal approach would have yielded a more positive response. Why don’t we have time to be personal anymore?
