Photography Live and Uncut episode 97 with Mary Presson Roberts




Mary sent me an email a few months back requesting whether there was a chance she could be a guest on my show? I think its great when I get such emails and I have had a few. It just so happened that when I received this email I was crammed with a full schedule of guests. But a slot came available and I was delighted when Mary said she could make it.

Mary Presson Roberts has been a teacher for over 30 years and recently took up photography and steadily worked through workshops, The Arcanum and mentoring courses on Google+ to a stage now where she can look forward to a new career in teaching photography when she retires from main stream teaching. 

Until next time Leave your camera bag at home.

Teresa Pilcher only got into street photographs a few short years back. Always interested in photography though, from a young age, it was joining The Arcanum and finding the right tool (for her) to use on the streets that finally photography-wise things slotted into line. We talk about her preferred camera gear - and she truly is a "one camera one lens" photographer - how much The Arcanum means to her and what it is had done to improve her photography. Plus we take a look at her images on her 'brand new website', from the fantastic cities she has visited and talk about her plans of cities she wants to visit next! Although she openly admits she doesn't really enjoy the travelling side. Her street photography is amazing with a real understanding and appreciation of light.

Thanks for joining me on Live and Uncut Teresa.

The Educator




I was delighted that Mason Marsh joined me last week on Photography Live and Uncut.

He is a dedicated father, but with quite a few stories to tell from his early photo-journalist days. He now, is a photography educator of the highest standard and speaks quite candidly in this episode of The Arcanum, in which he has just stated to take 'apprentices' on for Sphere 3 - the first to do so. We talk about The Arcanum in detail of how this "Magical Mystery of photography learning" has developed in its process of learning, its value for money and the misnomer of it being a pyramid sale and yes, maybe, how it could be improved on.

Also in this episode we check out Mason's beautiful work via the screen share and talk about his preferred camera gear and why!

Thank you Mason for joining me on the show.


Until next time 'leave your camera bag at home!'

As many of you will know, I am a dedicated member of The Arcanum, 'the' school of photography learning which was created by Trey Ratcliff, Peter Giordano and Curtis Simmons. Over the last year or so I have had the privilege of interviewing many of the masters and apprentices associated with this wonderful community.

So it came as a great surprise when it was proposed that my show could be 'host-jacked' to interview, me! My fellow apprentices in Sphere 2 had got together unbeknown to me to suggest this. I had an inkling that something was afoot as I had seen some conversation but anyway the show went ahead.

It was strange to answer the questions that I readily ask to my guests. In the show you'll find out a little bit of me and my photography background; What I like to shoot; My thoughts on camera clubs; How and why the Photography Live and Uncut show started and also, yes, my involvement and passion for The Arcanum. 

Thanks Bruce Clement for stepping up to the plate and to host this show, I hope you enjoyed it! I certainly did and hope you do too (the viewer) watching this via the links below.
