Going WILD

It’s been a few years since we had a chat with full time wildlife photographer, Rob Daugherty – aka Robswildlife, so we thought we would all get back together and catch up.

If you’re a wildlife or nature photographer, chances are you know our pal, Rob. If you’re new to this kind of photography, you’ll learn a lot! He’s also known as the Vest Guy, an entrepreneur and more, but it’s clear from our chats and following him on social media, his biggest passion is wildlife.

Please join us as we catch up with Rob and see what’s he’s been up to! We also dive in a bit further around wildlife conservation and the challenges of wildlife photography.  He also has a killer workshop tour in Africa coming up this month and he shares with us the details and more! Hmmm … maybe it’s time for a last minute vacay?

Join the convo

We would love to know your thoughts on wildlife photography. Have you ever considered the genre yourself? If so – what’s your go-to gear and what are some of the challenges you encounter? You can find us on BookFace and Twitter, and of course you can subscribe free via  iTunes or  Stitcher!

He’s Baaaaaack

It’s been several weeks and we missed him too much, so we convinced our good pal, Dom, to visit us again as we sort out all the excitement from the Fuji camp.

We Shoot Fuji Podcast 

Our friend, Marco Larousse, and his podcast co-host, Scott Bourne, made a special announcement on episode 17. If you’re a fan of the show, make sure to listen to the episode if you haven’t already for the full update. We wish them the best of luck as they move their show in a new direction with Photofocus.

Those Defining Photos

We followed up from episode 125 about the defining images we made in 2015 as well as those made from others which impacted us in some fashion throughout the year.

F is for Fuji

It’s Fuji time again. But this time, let’s blame Fujifilm directly for getting us all riled up. Haha. The rumours have been circulating for 3.5 years … true story. Then it was confirmed by Fujifilm they would be making some heavy announcements on January 15th as they celebrated their 5 years of their X Series lineup of bodies and lenses alike. Then they started to tease us with a countdown clock on the X-Pro 1 site,  Finally the clock struck and the live stream event took place. 60 official X Photographers around the globe travelled to Tokyo to partake in the celebrations.

Please join us as we roundup the latest announcements from Fujifilm, the X-Pro 2, XF 100-400mm ƒ4.5-5.6 and more!

Make sure to check out all the goodness – news, updates, reviews, videos and more on twitter:  We will also link up at the end of the post some of the hands on reviews that were coming in as the live event was going on.

Join the Convo

Are you a current X shooter? If so, what do you think of the announcement and latest soon-to-be released gear? Did the X-Pro 2 or one of the other bodies grab your attention? If you’re not sporting the Fuji brand now, are you considering making the switch? What about other mirrorless brands – which ones are on your radar if at all? We’d still love to hear about your defining photographs and/or moments of 2015. You can find us on here on the blog, BookFace or Twitter. Of course you can subscribe for free via iTunes and Stitcher.

Thanks again to Dominick for joining us again tonight. Please make sure to check out his work on Flickr and 500px!

Thanks for tuning in and making it this far in this Fuji-heavy episode. Much appreciated as always!

Cheers, y’all!

Episode 125 »» Year End Storm, shutter time with sid and mac photography podcastGear Chat

Oops, we did it again (thanks, Brit) … somehow gear chat finds a way to make it in our show most days … today is no exception. ‘Nuff said.

In the Storm

National Geographic announced their winners from their annual photography contest and once again, the winning images didn’t disappoint in one way or the other. Some of the images were fantastic and others kicked up a bit of a storm, the grand prize winning image in particular. Please join us as we discuss some of the images and the debate surrounding the mack daddy photograph.

Defining Moments  

Sometimes we just end up discussing things which were not planned and this is one of them (cheeky Mac). The Guardian released two very different lists regarding photography: the 20 photographs of the year (as described on the site, “the world’s leading photojournalists describe how they captured 20 defining images in 2015”), and the best photographs of 2015. Some photos made the list twice. As we discuss the first list, Mac and I had very different opinions and we battle it out a bit.

Join the Convo

What are your thoughts on the National Geographic winning image for 2015? Well deserved? We’d love to know your defining image you made in 2015, as well as a image or two taken by someone else which you feel is a defining photograph of 2015. Please keep the conversation going and check us out at Twitter and BookFace and of course, you can subscribe for free via iTunes and Stitcher.

Happy New Year, friends! Thanks as always for your support, interaction and more throughout another year. Here’s to making many more images in 2016!

Thanks for listening!

Cheers, y’all!

Reunited and It Feels So Good

Ah, Mac and Dom are together again.  The photo bromance of the year is brewing once again and this time, I’m joining them for a good ol’ fashioned chat about gear and other photo goodness. Uncle Murphy tried like hell to stop us, but we made it through the recording! Huzzah!

Workflow … Revisited. Again. 

Ah, the never ending quest to simplify one’s workflow never seems to end. Mac updates us on his new found fling with Capture One. Tune in to see how it’s going and what he likes about it!

Ansel, Is That You?

Everyone is talking about the intriguing photography job posting (now closed) from the Department of Interior. We quickly dish on it, but pretty much are just waiting to see who snags this highly coveted position.

Mmmm … Gear

With all the gear chat, rumours, hints of mirrorless this and medium format that, Dom suggested we get together to discuss some of the rumours and whether or not these anticipated announcements of new bodies are really necessary. Please tune in as we have a casual chat about the state of our gear, updates, firmware and more!

Thanks again to Dom for the topic suggestion, chat and great time! Please make sure to take a moment and check out his beautiful work!

Join the Convo

We’d love to hear your thoughts about medium format bodies and whatever is on your photographic minds! You can find us via Twitter and Bookface! You can also subscribe for free via iTunes and Stitcher!

Thanks as always for tuning in and sticking with us for another year! Y’all are top notch! Happy holidays and Happy New Year from us at Shutter Time! Rum and eggnog for everybody!

Cheers, y’all!

Episode 123 »» Does Your Photographic Reputation Count?

Join us as we discuss the importance of being well known for your photography to be considered art. We also chat about the WPP's code of ethics and more!

Codes and Stuff

World Press Photo, one of the better known prestigious annual photo contests, have recently implemented a code of ethics in the hopes to add some order to their contests and reputation. Join us as we update you on the latest from WPP.

Gotta Have Clout?

Controversy over the NPG Taylor Wessing photographic portrait 2015 winning image from David Stewart, Five Girls 2014, has sparked an interesting discussion online, so naturally we had to take to our mics and bring it to you. Please tune in as we beg the question inspired by a comment from one of the users on DP Review, when it comes to judging contests and / or appreciating art, does influence matter?

Hurry Up, Fuji

Many are anticipating the upcoming announcement and release of the XF100-400 lens. We briefly touch on the latest scoop.
