Sunday Jun 02, 2024

Join Harry, Marcus and Ruth for our June podcast. In this month's episode we discuss the story of the two men being charged with cutting down the UK's most photographed tree, we find out why a street in Japan is being closed to photographers and we look back at the huge aurora display. The Big Question this month asks why photography is so often expected for free and we discuss some of your input on the subject. We then vent a few travel frustrations before looking at some new products, asking, does the world really need them?

A big thanks to ThinkTank for sponsoring this month's show.
In this episode James and Marcus are in the studio discussing the latest photography stories in the news, including why some church vicars are lashing out at wedding photographers. We're asking if there is any point to camera straps, debating if modern cameras make photography too easy (including getting your views on the subject), and deciding if the world really needs a super long tripod plate, a new f/1.2 lens, a chest strap for your camera and more!
PLUS we are giving away a ThinkTank camera bag!

Sunday Mar 03, 2024

This month Marcus and Nick have their say about all things photography. 
We discuss some stories making the news, including the Super Bowl commercial that was accused of being AI when it wasn't and the damage caused by selfie takers in museums. We ask if the photography workshop industry needs to be regulated, we debate if there's any point to Long Exposure Noise Reduction, and we decide if the world really needs a fancy camera cap, a lightweight 500mm lens, waterproof equipment wraps and more!
And as always, we preview what's coming up on the next episode of Photography Online.

Sunday Feb 04, 2024

This month Harry and James get opinionated about all the goings-on in the world of photography. 
We discuss some photography stories making the news, including the new Las Vegas law banning selfies in the city and the worst product name of the year. We try and figure out why the photography industry is so male dominated, we debate if there's any point to Back Button Focus, and we ask if the world really needs an AI camera, a motorised tripod, a panoramic digital camera and...a lamp?!
And as always, we preview what's coming up on the next episode of Photography Online.

Saturday Dec 30, 2023

Welcome to our first ever Photography Online Podcast! This month, Marcus and James debate and discuss all the hot topics in the world of photography. 
We discuss some photography stories making the news. We ask - what defines someone as a photographer? We debate if Focus Stacking is all it’s hyped up to be and we ask does the world really need a new colour film, a hybrid camera, a ridiculously wide angle lens and a virtual camera assistant?
Plus, we let you know what's coming up on the next episode of Photography Online.
