  • Perfect advice from Steve. Take a few moments to get the rhythm of the show before you start taking pictures. I truly feel that the resulting images will have far more context and interest if the shooter is fully involved in that image.

    Thank you Matthias and Steve for this top notch podcast,
    It was my first listen to your podcasts and it certainly won’t be the last.
    It’s really fantastic to hear the humility and proffesionalism combined with a conscious outlook on respecting other people.
