Photographer Stories #10: Michael James Christian 28/09/2014

This is episode #10 of Photographer Stories. This episode I chat to my very good friend Michael James Christian. I have known Mike since about 2009, one of the first things we did together was visit this abandoned carpark, unfortunately at the time I was shooting with a crappy fisheye lens on a crappy digital camera so I apologise for that, there are some cool film shots to make up for it. Mike also enjoys taking photos of bands and we refer to this image quite a bit, mostly because it was right in front of us, was it a prop? maybe. Michael also mentions his collaborative music project called “A Warm Cup of Assholes“, check it out, it’s funny. As per usual we chat about cameras, photographers, gear and other shot. I left that typo in because of Mike’s kiwi excent. I hope you enjoy it! Cheers, MRJ.

Photographer Stories #9: James Ruff 28/09/2014

Hi. This is episode #9 of Photographer Stories. This episode I talk to a guy I know called James Ruff. I know James through a film shooters group here in Melbourne called the Melbourne Silver Mine, I may have mentioned them once or twice or eleven times before in the podcast. James and I chat about his history with photography, cameras that he has owned and cameras that he wants to own. We also chat in depth about his recent adventure into the Outback with far too many cameras. I had some microphone interference near the end so the last 10 minutes or so are a bit shit. I hope you enjoy it anyway! Cheers, MRJ.

Photographer Stories #8: Andrew Wuttke 25/09/14

Hi and welcome to episode #8 of Photographers Stories. This episode almost didn’t happen, my audio files became corrupt, but I managed to recover quite a few of them. This episode I talk to a photographer I know called Andrew Wuttke, he’s a real photographer and by that I mean his primary source of income is from photography. He’s good too. We talked about his history with photography, what he shoots, who he shoots for and how much he loves doing it. What you don’t get to hear was also good. He said “Nobody is going to ask you to go to the desert and shoot Kate Moss, you have to make it happen”. Oh and he uses Mac and PCs – revalationary! I hope you enjoy it. Cheers, MRJ.

Photographer Stories #7: James Pierce 08/09/14

Hi! This is episode #7 of Photographer Stories. This episode I speak with James Pierce. I have known James or at least known of James since about 2001. Back in the day, when you searched for/lusted after the Hasselblad Xpan online, you got James, one other guy and Hasselblad. James was heavily involved with a website you may have heard of called Red Bubble. We chatted about Red Bubble, photography, cameras and other shit. James tries (and it still trying) to get me to buy a “proper” large format camera. We talk about shooting large format, really large prints and largely, a lot of things photographic. After we chatted he took my portrait using his Ebony large format camera. I hope you enjoy it! Cheers, MRJ.

Photographer Stories #6: Clay Lipsky 30/08/14

Hi. This is episode #6 of Photographer Stories. This episode I talk to fellow photographer Clay Lipsky. You may have heard of him because of two awesome series of photos that he has produced. The first is Atomic Overlook which went viral in a big way and after 2 years is still touring as a photographic exhibition. The other is In Dark Light. We talk about photography, cameras, going viral, the Salton Sea, Iceland, the Faroe Islands, plagiarism, Los Angeles (where he lives) and lots of other shit. Clay is also a fellow Hasselblad Xpan shooter so we talk about that a bit too. I really hope you enjoy it! Cheers, MRJ.

Photographer Stories #5: Aaron Young 30/08/14

Hi. This is episode 5 of photographer stories. This time I speak to a friend of mine Aaron Young. Aaron and I worked for the same company but not at the same time so I have to warn you, we do talk about that a fair bit. We also talk about his new photographic baby, the Sony A6000. We talk about all sorts of shit. We actually talked for over 2 hours but I managed to cut it down to just over an hour so sorry if it sounds a bit clipped. I also premiere a piece of music that a friend of mine, Michael Christian made for me. Enjoy! Cheers, MRJ.

RETRACTION: Aaron would like everyone to know he doesn’t actually think the Nikon D5100 is a piece of shit. Matthew still does however.

Photographer Stories #4: Craig Nye 26/08/2014

Hi. This is the 4th episode of Photographer Stories. The other night I went over to my friend Craig’s house and we sat down and talked as quietly as humanly possible while still being able to be heard on the recorder and ate tiny ice creams. We talked about cameras mostly, because he’s owned a few, he stopped counting at 74, that’s a good number to stop at. We talked about photography regret, DIGITAL CAMERAS, working in photographic retail and other things photographic too. Craig runs a photography related forum called Sweet Photos Bro, you should check it out. Cheers, MRJ.

Photographer Stories #3: Cameron Stephen 21/08/2014

Hi. Welcome to the 3rd episode of Photographer Stories! This morning I got up early (for a day off that is) and went for a bit of a drive into the country to chat with Cameron Stephen aka Artpunk. Cam is right into his toy cameras, as proven by this photo. We chatted about him, photography, cameras, photographers and once again, all sorts of shit. We sat and chatted outside on his balcony with a ginger beer, the bird sounds were amazing. I’m sorry if it’s still a bit quiet, I’m working on that. Enjoy!
