This is a special feature length podcast with my wife Sue guest-hosting as we talk about our fantastic trip to California.
As we were on the trip I provided periodic updates to my Travel Photography Facebook Page. I have created blogs on my website (see links below) that use these original updates to tell our story and will complement the listening of the podcast - we really hope you enjoy our story!

I have run this Podcast for a few months now and have used up all of my time allowance on the free offer from Soundcloud but it was good whilst it lasted. So after some research I found that Squarespace can offer a hosting service so I’m giving it a go!
This episode is very brief and covers a correction required from Episode 13 and some words about this transition process, what I have learned so far, and what this new hosting solution may offer.
Charlie's Request! (Correction to follow!*)
Charlie's request for iPhone photography tips/recommendations
Late Summer Holiday.
* I mention 6 box grid for the iPhone screen but it is actually 9. The concept is still the same but you need to have 9 boxes in the grid to apply the intersection points for the Rule of Thirds.
It's a hot, dry summer in the UK!
England are doing superbly well in the World Cup
I have needed to buy some more add-on gear to help with my sound recording
I've done another Lime Meadow shoot
A new Business Headshot
I've set up another Social Media presence for my travel photography in order to separate it from the other part of my brand
I'm preparing for another trip!
Trying something different - again! I "discovered" that I had not upgraded to the new version of GarageBand so have now done that and this is the result - it might be a bit rough around the edges . . .
This is a really quick episode where I test out some new sound recording gear, a Rode PSA1 boom arm and SMR shock mount. I have also used a different module in GarageBand to record it and I really like it - but it would be great to get some feedback from any listeners too. Compare this episode to previous ones and let me know what you think - thanks!
YouTube Vlog - need a catchy thumbnail pic, but 100 views so far
Colleague headshots - great session, good timing, pleased client & just waiting for selections. First use of AD600PRO studio heads and very pleased with them
Daughter headshot - impromptu - guess what is unusual? Great feedback and social media likes on our Instagrams and my Facebook page
Rotary Event - Charity Gig, great time, great feedback!
How you must be professionally prepared! Do not leave anything to chance and not just on the day. I was set up to be a professional and hard work made that possible
Pricing for Events - Charity excepted, always get a fee up front
Headshot Workshop this Saturday - beats the Royal Wedding any day!
In this episode of my Podcast I talk about a recent shoot at Lime Meadow Folk & Blues Club, my good experiences with Shutterstock & Alamy (cher-ching!) and preparing for a forthcoming trip to Budapest!
In this episode I move on from the introduction in Episode 1 to share information about my Online and Social Media presence. I talk about what I use, why I use it/them and give my thoughts and comments on how I go about related steps on my journey.
I've moved the Podcast across to Anchor FM
