We are joined by the nicest, sunniest and loveliest Rachel Brewster-Wright.
Most will know Rachel as the nicest member of the Sunny16 Podcast and perhaps for her day job as owner of Little Vintage Photography.
You may not know that Rachel has been drawn to Large Format photography for a while and now is the proud owner of two, yes two Chroma 5x4 cameras.
We eventually steer Rachel around to talking a bit about Large Format but not before we cover loads of ground about her background, influences and real passion for all things analogue and educational.
The interview is cut short a bit with some live drama – you’ll have to listen to find out (Everything is fine by the way it sounded more dramatic than it was so don’t worry).
Links and references arising from the discussions;
Following a successful Kickstarter campaign the wonderful Chroma Camera (as held by Simon and me at the Photography Show)
Cyanotype Pioneer and friend Fox Talbot Anna Atkins (she’s dead now but you can find out all about here here)
Rachel appeared at this year’s Photography Show in Birmingham (UK) with Historian Rose Teanby.
Anna Atkins work can be viewed in this beautiful book
Rachel can be found most weeks as one third of the Sunny 16 Podcast and often keeping Graeme in check on the Backing Paper Podcast – both accessible via their website
Check out all that Rachel does:
And her website which I think is being updated
