The Big Six

Breaking away from tradition, World Press Photo has announced the six finalists for the highly coveted World Press Photo of the Year award for 2018 instead of announcing the sole winner for this category. Looking at the work from the finalists, it left us wondering if we were becoming desensitized to the images typically showcased from photojournalists in award categories. We knew we needed to contact local talent, news reporter/editor, Trevor Robb from the Edmonton Journal and Edmonton Sun, to join our conversation about these kind of images as we ask ourselves, what makes a World Press Photo?

If you have not had a chance to view the six finalists, we recommend you do so whilst listening to the show so you can see what we see »» WPP 2018 Photo Contest | All Categories. Please join us as we discuss the images in detail and the criteria for selecting the World Press Photo.

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.
