We are joined on the show by another of Andrew’s mates (he doesn’t have many so don’t worry) the very lovely Mr Stephen Segasby.
Steve was responsible in many ways for getting Andrew into Large Format Photography and even tried to explain the Scheimpflug Principle at their first LF meet up in North Norfolk, surprisingly they remained friends.
Steve is a thoughtful and deliberate image maker who uses metaphor and print series to convey feelings and emotions through the use of cameras and other print medium. As a founding member of the “Inside the Outside” collective he is passionate about the English Landscape, its mysteries, weirdness and history.
Hope you enjoy the chat.

Steve refrained from explaining the Sheimpflug principle but we all agreed there are some excellent YouTube resources to help us – like this one

Finally, there have been rumblings of discontentment regarding our theme music by Graeme Jago of the Sunny 16 Podcast. We shall run a pole in our Facebook group as to whether the music should be retained or retired. The poll will be closed when the correct result is reached.
