In this episode we remember those who selflessy served their Country during World War 1 and World 2 and who paid the ultimate sacrifice so that we can live in peace and with the freedoms that we do today. You’re going to hear excerpts from interviews when Glyn has sat and chatted with surviving World War 2 Veterans as part of his 39-45 Portraits Project.

This week Dave and Glyn talk about the benefits of a photographer and designer working on a project together and how they went through the process of conception to delivery, how they brainstormed and who they used to deliver the promotional items required. Collaborating on a project enables you to add both your creative experience to any project, here we discuss how the 3945 Portraits project branding came together.
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.
