Episode #38 - with Benjamin Graham

Released: Friday 11th May

On this episode we catch up with current 'Landscape Photographer of the Year' Benjamin Graham. Benjamin won last years competition with a subtle and intriguing image and Paul chats to him about the image itself, his shooting style, how its been since winning and much more including his photographic background. Benjamin is quite a character and it's great to get into the back story of his motivations.

Also on this weeks show we feature 3 upcoming events that may be of interest to you all: The 'London Nights' exhibition at the Museum of London feauring classic and contemporary images. Also, we're excited about 'FotoFest Central' event on July 15th at Patchings Art Centre featuring talks from Charlie Waite, Mark Littlejohn, Leeming & Paterson and Tom Way. And finally we gave a shout out to Margaret Soraya who has an exhibition on the Isle of Harris in June featuring her seascape images.

Episode #37 - Vision 9 Exhibition

Released: Thurs 22nd April 2018

We're back! Apologies for the slight hiatus, we return with behind the scenes chats with eight leading landscape photographers who were behind the 'Vision 9' exhibition in London recently. We chat with Beata Moore, Astrid McGechan, Doug Chinnery, Valda Bailey, Linda Wevil, Marianthi Lainas, Rachael Talibart and our very own Paul Sanders. Sadly Cheryl Hamer who was also part of the event was unwell on the recording day.

This is a great chance to hear from 8 excellent landscape photographers, their approach to an exhibition, their thoughts about how to choose images, how to hang, what size and all their insecurities about exhibiting with their peer group. We hear some fascinating back stories behind the images including what inspired our photographers and even some very leading edge printing techniques (printing onto copper panels) from Valda Bailey.

The Togcast is hosted by Sam Gregory and Paul Sanders and supported by WEX Photo Video (www.wexphotovideo.com) and Fotospeed (www.fotospeed.com). Check out www.TheTogcast.com for more info and past episodes or via www.thetogcast.podbean.com
