Ep105: With Aga Tomaszek: Nikon to Sony

Rich and I had a blast with one of our photographer friends, Aga Tomaszek as she talks all about her career and how Video is a major influence with her photography.

 

Rich has known Aga for quite a few years now, they get on vey well and often refer each other as they appreciate each others work and they get on like a house on fire. So with Aga being one of the leading photographers in the UK, we wanted to ask her, as there seems to be a trend with Photographers offering video, if she is looking into this as a viable business decision. We also explore the pro’s and con’s of switching fully from Nikon to Sony cameras.

 

Here is her website, check it out

Rich and I have a varied discussion this week. Mainly it consists of creating two wedding video companies, one specialising in high-end and the other in high-turnover, is it a viable business? We talk about the surprising Sony a7iii announcement and how it might be a great ‘B’ camera for Rich and myself at weddings. Finally Ben talks about how he got a better result with a green screen gig he got by using one light rather than two. Enjoy!

The Series - Leading Ladies

The Series - Leading Ladies


In the first of a new series we speak to the Leading Ladies, simply called “The Series”

We have only interviewed two women on the podcast before today and Rich and I wondered why this was the case. Put simply, there isn’t many women videographers in the UK. So we decided to talk to who we regard as the leading ladies in the industry, Frances Madell from Reel Love Films, Alice Underwood from Alice Underwood Films, Carys Kaiser from The Drone Lass, Leanne Perrins from Blooming Lovely Films and Laura Lawson from Lawson Films to discuss their difficulties in starting, how their working life is affected and if they have encountered sexism within their chosen trade.

Ben Gets Interviewed

I was approached by a lovely chap called Ryan Yapp of Rolling Films based in Cheltenham. He wants to interview the best videographers and photographers around - and yet he chose me for his second interview!!!

Anyway, it was a pleasure to be part of his interview. He asks me about the wedding industry and how I got started within this industry. 

I have an idea about the future of the industry and how the industry has changed over the 9 years.

In the first episode of 2018, Rich and I talk about the psychology of wedding films. Enquiries seem to be chalk and cheese to me and Rich. We also talk about the future of the show, new courses and how, since the new year there is more competition within the wedding trade. I love it when Rich gets on his high horse, and this is a great episode.
