Last week we spoke to the godfather, this week we speak to ‘The Photoshop Guy’ Dave Cross. Both Glyn and Dave have learned so much from people such as Dave since their introduction to Photoshop and continuing our quest to interview the very people who have helped us we bring you our episode with Photoshop Hall of Famer, author and instructor (ex-KelbyOne/NAPP) Dave Cross.

Glyn and Dave return from Adobe Max in Los Angeles and give you an update about the event, the great people they met and also dealing with some very negative online comments about Photoshop CC2019. On episode 44 we chat to Photoshop legend Bert Monroy, recorded at Adobe Max 2018.
This week Glyn interviewed a friend from his school days, Nathan Black. Nathan was the kid that everyone wanted to be: good looking, tough, he had muscle, all the girls chased him..he had it all. However in later life has had serious physical and medical illness and it’s through his strength of character and positivity he’s alive today! No matter what you’re experiencing in life have faith that it will work out. Good times are ahead, just stick in there as Nathan has because through darkness there is light!
Photography is Gift so GIVE IT!
Who needs a Studio?
This week Glyn and Dave chat to photographer Peter Hurley – the headshot guy who created “The Peter Hurley Look”, “The Squinch” and of course SHABANG! We chat to Peter how a schoolkid with little confidence starts of sailing and ends up with a modelling career with Ralph Lauren / Polo and ends up being a successful photographer, teacher and author….and still a decent sailor!

Following on from the Lenny Terenzi episode, Dave and Glyn got chatting about friendship and relationships in business and life and how to make sure you know how to balance and manage them to the best possible outcome. Not all decisions in life are a ‘yes’ but quite often the ‘no’ isn’t always a negative. Hopefully after listening you’ll find a way of making sure your friendships stay strong and your business continues to grow with their support and help.
Glyn sat down with David Edmonson and his son, Luke, both incredible photographers for a very personal chat about life and photography but it’s more than that for both of them. David has over 40 years in the industry and is truly a ‘Master Photographer’. Join Glyn, David and Luke for a very intimate conversation.
David Edmonson has been called a “Master Photographer to Master Photographers” and with good reason. With over 40 years in the industry, the indelible impact David Edmonson leaves with clients, students and peers around the world is remarkable. No doubt, his signature style is unmistakable. But it’s his “Iron-Sharpens-Iron” philosophy that has fueled his art and professional success.
A relentless pursuit of excellence through competition. Selfless mentorship. A hands-on benevolence with his passionate charities. Simply put, the “Edmonson Way” means that giving is a both a privilege and a path to self-improvement; for himself and those he encounters. David, is a Grand Master Photographer of WPPI, was bestowed with WPPI’s Lifetime Achievement the organizations highest honor. It’s often said that Art Imitates Life. If you’ve ever seen the work of David Edmonson, this is clearly true: “Profound with dimensionality, ingrained with emotion and compelling in their beauty.”
In 2015, Luke, a Double Master of WPPI, presented his father David with WPPI’s Lifetime Achievement the organizations highest honor. Luke is al-so one of the three founders and and a graduate of WPPI’s Certification Program for Wedding & Portrait Photographers, the first ever of its kind.
…This is the Edmonson Way.

Glyn and Dave chatted to UKs very own Hannah Couzens. Hannah is an absolute powerhouse of a business person, photographer and all round lovely person. We first met Hannah at The Photography Show and have both followed her career for a few years, she chats about how she made a very focused start in her business at the young age of 19 and how she’s worked damn hard to build that and maintain it.
This week I got to have an awesome chat with the man behind Recapturist and the best selling book ‘Junk Type’, Bill Rose. Bill has spent over a decade travelling around America capturing the lost roadside treasures of the USA. Neon signs, logo design, junk type, shop fronts and anything that catches his eye to preserve in a photograph. Check out Bill’s site recapturist.com to see his collection and his map of treasure! This interview was an absolute joy!
Recapturist is Bill Rose. Bill Rose documents the aesthetics of vintage American design. The most visually pleasing parts of American design are fading away. The glorious neon signs that once lined our roadsides are nearly extinct. Mid-Century modern architecture is increasingly hard to find among non-residential structures. And products that used to come branded with machine-stamped chrome badges and hand-drawn typographical elements are now made overseas and marked with plastic decals.
This tragic state of affairs is widening the gap between the golden age of design and the present day. So Bill has spent the last decade-plus on a mission to capture the finest examples of what’s left. He travels the back roads of America looking for neon signs, junkyards, yard sales, antique stores, estate sales–anywhere evidence of these endangered designs can still be found. The result is a graphic collection of design and typography from an era that predates the computers and specialized software used by modern-day designers. These images depict forms that were conceived, created, and produced manually on a drawing table using tools and techniques that are nearly obsolete today. These designers were true craftsmen. Bill’s hope is that his site http://www.recapturist.com can serve as a reference guide–a resource that helps bridge the design and typographic styles of the past with those of today–and perhaps even be a source of inspiration for whatever comes next. https://twitter.com/recapturist // https://www.instagram.com/recapturist/ // https://www.instagram.com/junktype // https://www.facebook.com/recapturist // http://www.pinterest.com/recapturist
Going it alone even when you believe in your abilities is always a risk. We speak to Matt Kloskowski, formerly of KelbyOne and OnOne, and now founder of Matt Kloskowski Photography and Training. He specializes in outdoor, landscape, and nature photography along with editing with Photoshop, Lightroom, and ON1 apps. Matt was inducted into the Photoshop Hall of Fame in 2014 and is the best-selling author of over 20 books. Matt loves to educate others and spends much of his time teaching seminars around the world. We first met Matt during our NAPP days and when it comes to training, you won’t find much better than Matt in terms of content and business knowledge. // https://mattk.com/courses/ // https://mattk.com/about/ // https://members.kelbyone.com/author/kloskowskimatt/ // https://twitter.com/mattkloskowski //
It’s an absolute pleasure this week to chat to our old friend Moose Peterson. Who is Moose you may ask? Well, Moose’s true passion has always been and remains photographing the life history of our endangered wildlife and wild places. Since 1981 he and his wife Sharon have dedicated their lives to this pursuit. In recent years Moose has added aviation photography to his pursuits with the same goal of preserving our flying history, pictorial and oral for future generations. He shares his knowledge through his writing, being published in over 133 magazines worldwide, author of 29 books including Taking Flight, his best seller Captured and most recently, Take Off. He also has 25 classes on KelbyOne. And a he’s a bloody lovely bloke too!!
