Why Format Your Memory Card?

Why Format Your Memory Card?

How often you format your memory cards is personal choice.  Personally, I tend to do this when preparing my kit before each assignment.  If I’m simply taking photos for myself then I tend not to bother doing it each time, but what I don’t want to happen when working with clients is for my card to slow down, become full way before it should because of the amount of unseen storage space being occupied or worse, failing altogether. 


Assignments can be stressful enough, it doesn’t matter whether it’s your first one or your one hundredth, your reputation is everything, so don’t let something as basic as not formatting your memory cards damage that.

One Thing That Should Be At The Top of Your Priority List For 2023

One Thing That Should Be At The Top of Your Priority List For 2023

When starting out upon your creative journey it’s easy to fall into the trap of wanting to try everything and buying the best equipment before you identify the niche that you will focus on. We all do it, so don’t think you’re alone in this.

If you’re just starting out, my advice would be to restrain yourself from doing so. There are some great deals out there for starter packs that you can get your teeth into and hone your skill set.

However, if you’re producing video content, the one thing I would suggest that goes against this grain is invest in a good microphone.

Kate Winslet to star in film about Lee Miller's life as a model and photographer

Kate Winslet to star in film about Lee Miller's life as a model and photographer

From photographer to model to photojournalist, Lee Miller will be played by Kate Winslet on the big screen. But who is Lee Miller?


You can check out the Lee Miller Archives account on Instagram that pays homage to the late photographers' incredibly important work.

So why am I talking to you about this?

My reason for bringing this to you is not only to celebrate women in a predominantly male dominated profession, but also to bring awareness of my project, “Breaking Stereotypes”.

Breaking Stereotypes is a project I began in order to celebrate women who are working within what are stereotypically perceived to be male dominated professions.

The project looks to expose that woman are equally as capable as their male counterpart, and I’m always looking for those who would be happy to share their experiences. You can always get in touch with me by leaving a comment, or tweet me @GaryFernon

Until next time my friends, Be Creative. Be Inspired. Be You.

The Best Photo-Editing Laptops for Photographers in 2022

The Best Photo-Editing Laptops for Photographers in 2022

Before we look at the list we have to ask ourselves 2 questions.

Do I use a laptop as my only means of editing, or do I use it for convenience when not able to sit in front of the desktop? And; Am I a Mac or a PC?


MacBook Pro M1 (16 inch, 2021) (review
https://www.digitalcameraworld.com/reviews/apple-macbook-pro-16-inch-2021-review ) Razer Blade 17 MacBook Air M2 (review https://www.digitalcameraworld.com/reviews/apple-macbook-air-m2-2022-review ) Dell XPS 15 Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9 Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio (review https://www.digitalcameraworld.com/reviews/microsoft-surface-laptop-studio ) MacBook Pro M2 (13 inch, 2022) (review https://www.digitalcameraworld.com/reviews/apple-macbook-pro-m2-2022-review ) Asus Zenbook Pro Duo 14 (review https://www.digitalcameraworld.com/reviews/asus-zenbook-pro-14-duo-oled-ux8402-2022-review ) Razer Blade 15 LG Gram 14” 2021 HP Spectre x360 14 OLED (review https://www.digitalcameraworld.com/reviews/hp-spectre-x360-14-oled-review ) Acer Predator Helios 300 (review https://www.digitalcameraworld.com/reviews/acer-predator-helios-300-review )


Here are 5 things to consider before making that decision.

1. Screen quality matters

Choose a screen that has IPS display tech. IPS monitors or “In-Plane Switching” monitors, leverage liquid crystals aligned in parallel to produce rich colors.

2. Speedy storage

An SSD (solid state drive) is a must in any new laptop. 512GB is a minimum if you’re working with 4K video.

3. Graphic novelty

Dedicated graphics cards are great for gaming, but they’re not a necessity for photo editing. Today’s processors can more than adequately deliver for photo editing. However, if you edit video as well, then you may wish to consider a graphics card as this will only improve the experience.

4. Which processor (CPU)?

Typically, laptop and desktop chips have two or four cores (known as dual-core and quad-core). Some newer models have six and even eight. The more cores, the better, because it allows your computer to run multiple tasks at the same time without slowing down.

https://www.which.co.uk/reviews/laptops/article/intel-processors-explained-what-is-core-i3-i5-i7-and-pentium-av6235O66IQP

5. Mac or PC?

This is very much a marmite subject. You’re either a Mac or a PC.

What laptop do you use or recommend, and why? Let me know in the comments or you can tweet me @GaryFernon.


Until next time, Be Creative, Be Inspired, Be You.

How To Work Out Your Hourly Rate

How To Work Out Your Hourly Rate

If you’re just starting out and haven’t yet established yourself, the impact of this can have two detrimental implications. Price yourself too high and no-one will book you, because you haven’t established yourself and proven that you are worth the price you are commanding. Price yourself too low and people won’t book you because they think that you’re cheap and won’t have confidence in your ability.

If you follow this simple method, this will help you identify where you need to be, at least in the beginning. Once you have built your portfolio and the awareness surrounding what you can do, then you can start charging the big bucks.

The World's First 2 TERABYTE microSD card

The World's First 2 TERABYTE microSD card

Not so long ago to get 2 terabytes of storage you'd need a thumping-great 3.5-inch mechanical hard disk drive.

However, Japanese company Kioxia Corporation claim to have produced a working prototype of a 2TB microSDXC card.


If, like me, you haven’t heard of Kioxia Corporation before, I’ve included a link to their website so you can learn more about them.

What are your initial thoughts on a 2TB microSDXC card?  Let me know by either leaving a comment or tweeting me @GaryFernon.

How To Price Yourself As A Wedding Photographer

How To Price Yourself As A Wedding Photographer

Deciding on how to price yourself can be an absolute brain ache.  Charge too much and people expect the unachievable, charge too little and people overlook you believing you're not capable.  In this episode I break down the math of a recent wedding I shot and give you insight on the things to consider, especially if you're new to wedding photography, so that you can price yourself according to your value from the start.

If you're new to photography, then this episode is definitely worth a listen to.  Even if you're not new to photography, I'd still recommend a listen.

This is my first Q&A Corner of 2021, where I answer the following questions,

What are the best photography tips for a beginner? How does ISO affect images in photography? What types of shots are best to learn photography on? What kinds of things should be practiced each day when learning photography?


I'd love to do more Q&A Corners throughout the year, so if you liked this episode, why not let me know.  Better yet, why not send me your question, and I'll offer you my thoughts.

A Note To One's Self

A Note To One's Self

The idea behind this episode came to me whilst out cycling, and references an incident I had with a window cleaner, which caused me to take a step back and reflect upon what it was that they had done wrong, and to remind myself not to make the same mistake.

Breaking Stereotypes with Natasha Lloyd-Vest

Breaking Stereotypes with Natasha Lloyd-Vest

Breaking Stereotypes is a project that I began to identify and raise awareness of females who are working within stereotypically male dominated fields, to expose the fact that they are just as competent as their male counterparts, but also to highlight the prejudices that they have to deal with on a daily basis. Whilst we are getting better at accepting the changing times, there is still far too many individuals and companies that are living in the past with respect to their views on who can and who can’t do a particular job.

This particular episode I linked in with photographer Natasha Lloyd-Vest from Denmark (not Norway as I mention during this episode), whilst she hasn’t had to deal with prejudices per-say, some of the advice she gives I thought was worth listening to and sharing on this platform.

If you are, or you know, of any females who would like to be part of this project i’d love to hear from you / them.

Six Circular Objects

Six Circular Objects

There will be times when inspiration is lacking. You have the drive to get out there with your camera in hand and want to be creative, but the heart and head just aren't in sync.  Hopefully this quick episode will help spark something creative within.

At the time of recording this the weather in the UK was raining, and whilst this may be stereotypical of the UK, and not something that would usually deter us Brits form getting outside regardless, there are those days where you just don't fancy it.  But this isn't to say that you can't still be creative with the camera.  There are plenty of opportunities around the house, you just have to look.


Be Creative. Be Inspired. Be You.

In this episode I give my opinion to a question, “Are there any tips on starting a photography Instagram page?”


One last thing before you go, I appreciate time is precious but could I ask a small favour. It would mean so much to me if you would rate and / or review this podcast. My aim is to provide you with bite sized pieces of information that will motivate and inspire you to go out and be creative, and by doing me this small favour it lets me know that I’m achieving just that, or not, I suppose that depends on whether you give me one star or five. Regardless it gives me an indication as to whether I’m succeeding or off the beaten path. You’re the best.

Since I started my journey within photography, there have been those occasions when people had the audacity to ask whether I would take photos for them, for free.

Whilst I’m not totally against this, as I do think, if you are starting out and trying to build your portfolio, this is a good way to achieve this. You get the experience and catalog, and the other person gets some shots, that may not be the best, but they understand. We all have to start somewhere and there is only so many shots you can take of family members before both you and they get tired.

But what frustrates me most of all, is peoples lack of appreciation for the creativity, time, passion and effort that goes in to producing a quality photo. Now, I do recognise that this is slowly becoming a thing of the past, what with the rise in popularity for the subject, but it is still there.

And I was reminded of this recently when I stumbled upon an ad placed by a photographer in Chicago…

19:75 How The Instagram Algorithm Works In 2019

I’m going to make the assumption that you have an Instagram account. But let me ask you a question. Do you post strategically, or simply post willy nilly and hope for the best? As a customer of Hootsuite I get sent regular emails with tips on making the best out of my social media, some of which holds no interest to me, but in general it does. One such email included a link to the Hootsuite blog explaining how the Instagram algorithm works in 2019, and I thought I would share some of the tips with you in this episode. I will be surmising the blog post, so if you wanted to read the whole thing for yourself I will leave the link within the descriptive script of this episode. https://blog.hootsuite.com/instagram-algorithm/?utm_campaign=cust_selfserve-alwayson-self_serve_engagement-glo-none----engagement_prog25_may19_igalgorithm-en--q2_2019&utm_source=blog&utm_medium=email&utm_content=&mkt_tok=eyJpIjoiT0RNeU9HWTJNekkwWVdZdyIsInQiOiJ5cExUYnc1WFRzNVU0N2hSMXppOXhkajV2K3RuUnIyOElraHBkd3Y1aFBBK2RBVlhNWXg2TXRXVDNkNkJCVG1xMUdIcHNZc2FkSUxCc1VVVk15eTlWSVlMQllPOHd1bjNjZkpuNTc2cFhiS2xMQlhyN21CaXFoT2ptUEcyeHlGSSJ9 Be Creative, Be Inspired, Be you.

19:69 Repost, Reproblem

Hello everyone and welcome to the podcast. It's been a while since I mentioned the Corpus Callosum Facebook page, a page I created to bring creators, just like you, together, to share ideas and find inspiration from others work. What I also did was create a corpus Callosum Instagram page, where I share the members photos and videos via the Repost app, but what I've found is that it doesn't allow me to share my own work.
I've tried to find out if this is a common issue but to date have been unsuccessful, so I pose the question to those who use this app, is this a common issue, and how do you overcome it?

Thank you for taking the time to listen to this episode, I really do appreciate it, and if you could find the time to leave a rating and or a review that would be great. Until next time, be creative, be inspired, be you.

Hello everyone and welcome to the podcast. I recently stumbled upon an article on LinkedIn with respect to Pinterest, which was titled, “Why You Should Be Marketing Your Photography On Pinterest.

If I’m honest, Pinterest has never really been a platform that I have spent much focus on. Whilst I do have the app on my phone, and I do post my creative process blogs to the sight, I don’t ever really use it as a search tool. But maybe I should.
