Hello there lovely snapper!This week we start off with a little look at our computer setups and talk about MNMLSM, or minimalism to us common folk. Jess Burges is a photographer from Northland who's looking at a new editing station so we try and find a solution for her - see if you agree!Then Thom gets his list out and we look into the reasons why we're not so tempted to head over to Canon for the frothy new mirrorless R5 and R6. Don't get us wrong, they're amazing cameras... so why aren't we quite sold?And this week Thom's mic cut out for the entire Snapdown segment so stay tuned for next week to hear those... again... (we'll try and sound enthusiastic).Looking for an amazing CRM tool for photographers? Check out Studio Ninja and use the promo code thesnappening50 for 50% off a year's subscription!

Listen, Snappers. There aren't too many weddings happening right now, hence our slower than usual recording schedule. Things are quite peachy in NZ but in Aus things are still uncertain. Greg and Thom have been doing lots of non-wedding tasks but we still managed to get together to talk shop. Today our topics meander through various territories. We touch base on Covid-related postponements (how can we not?). We move on to the dreaded google algorithm and what happens when this is updated (hint: your rankings might suffer). We then discuss the dreaded email from a client: 'we love our photos BUT.....'Looking for an amazing CRM tool for photographers?

Wassup Snappers!!!??? It's hard to explain... two wedding photographers who are currently more or less unemployed and have nothing wedding-related to talk about, sit down expecting to have a horrible time full of awkward pauses and myriad ums and ahs... yet what occurs is spontaneous banter that rivals some of the best five-day cricket test match commentators from the 1990s... this is episode 92.We launch straight into Sony rumours, no mucking around here, then reflect on some surprising booking stats (Thom has epic stats... admittedly Greg does also). Then the meat on the bone... what's up with all these companies going to monthly payments? Do we like it? Then there's the whole 'spelling the couple's name wrong on the album cover' that old chestnut.Looking for an amazing CRM tool for photographers?

Wassup snappers!? Well we scrape the bottom of the barrel for another episode... but it turned out ok! Greg talks about some sweet Duracel 3rd party batteries, then Thom talks about some last minute weddings that he's booked and some of his techniques to make the sale!We then look into Patrick Newnham's wedding photography website - www.wildinlove.co.uk. It's a great site and Patrick is a very skilled photographer! You guys are making it hard for us to cause utter destruction like we want to - but don't worry we find a way ;)Looking for an amazing CRM tool for photographers?

Hey there snappers2020 certainly hasn't been a wonderful year for planet earth thus far. We chat about our take on what's happening in the USA right now. We then chat a bit more about refundable deposit policies (Thom has done a 180 since last week!) Thom has a new 11" iPad Pro, and Greg is excited as he's just organised his vast screw collection :) We then have a good look at the wonderful website of Pickin Images based in the UK.

Hey Snappers! We don't just want to talk about covid, but it's definitely affecting all of us right now, so here we are again with some more covid chat. Both Greg and Thom have had new clients ask, given the circumstances, whether or not their deposit will be refunded if covid comes back strong and they have to postpone / cancel their wedding. We chat about how we deal with this question and what we've decided to do. We also go into business names: should you use your own name, or choose a generic (but hipster) business name? We then take a gander at the lovely website of Martin Ellard called My Big Day Wedding Photography, and we review it. Huge shout out to King Buffalo who allowed us to use their track Centurion in this episode. Looking for an amazing CRM tool for photographers?

Hi everyone! It's still lockdown and it's now been nearly been 8 weeks since Greg has shot a wedding... withdrawal symptoms are starting to show... But we find some nuggies to talk about including a great app called Amphetamine, for keeping your computer awake. A classic Facebook group called Crap Wildlife Photography, Canon's new cloud-based photo upload and storage system image.canon and a sweet Facebook Business bookmark timesaver. We also chat about potential side hustles and Thom offers some ideas including his brother's new online business vet-shop.net which is going great!Then as part of our lockdown website analysis segment we check out Julia Rau's new site and give some feedback. It's another mint site, but we try to eek out some constructive criticism.Looking for an amazing CRM tool for photographers?

Hi-de-hi snappers. Well we're as quiet as ever at Snappening HQ - we hope you're all staying sane out there through all this! So today we chat a bit about the new Canon offerings - the R5 and the rumoured R6 (this might be the wedding 'togs dream camera). We also wonder if being pro photographers means we're more reluctant to take photos for fun or at family events - is that a thing? Then we check out Samantha Donalson's website and give it the old GC/TC look over. It's a great site - check it out! www.samanthadonaldson.comLooking for an amazing CRM tool for photographers?

Hey there, unemployed Snappers! The first part of today's episode is a rollicking good time - you'll love it. We talk about Thom's new foster kittens, then Greg drops an all-time Lightroom snapdown that will blow your mind! We also chat about our love/hate relationship with those hamper baskets that venues often provide to a bridal party just before portraits. Who's gonna carry them? They just get in the way! We then move on to a new segment where we load up and review, on-air, one of our listener's websites, chosen from our Facebook page. In this case we are chatting about Pure Images Photography, based in Tauranga, NZ. From now on we'll try to chat about one website per week. Looking for an amazing CRM tool for photographers?

Hey Snapisolators! Well admittedly we're getting pretty low on things to talk about, on account of neither of us actually shooting any weddings - however - we do have a few good nuggies to share. Greg is in the middle of building his new website and has discovered Pixieset (spoiler... he likes it a lot). Thom shares his new Instagram uploading app and if you're using BlogStomp, dan't make the mistake that Greg has been making for the past six years...!Looking for an amazing CRM tool for photographers?

Hey snappers. Well, it seems that, like creative professional all over the world, we suddenly have heaps more time on our hands thanks to Covid 19. In episode 84 we talk about how the events of the last week have effected our businesses, and us personally. We talk about how many weddings we've lost or had to postpone, and how we have handled situations where a couple has requested a refund. To be honest we don't talk about too much else... the industry is undergoing a pretty heavy period and we want to acknowledge this, but also to remind you all that you're not alone, we're in this together, and you're not the only one feeling lost and down.

Hey busy people! We managed to fit in a quick snap today - jeez it's hard this time of year - and have a chat about all kinds of things, ranging from celebrants (and their inability to be clear of the kiss) , the uncertainty of the Coronavirus situation, some Lightroom shortcuts and the usual banter about cars and bands. Oh and Greg loves Orico computer products!Looking for an amazing CRM tool for photographers? Check out Studio Ninja and use the promo code thesnappening50 for 50% off a year's subscription!

Hey Snappity SnappersThis week we don't really have a 'main topic' but we chat about various little golden nuggets of goodness. Thom has a new iPad Pro that he's using in sidecar with his laptop. Greg is loving his new NAS, and he also some some great Lightroom advice for cropping and image width. We talk about the new Canon EOS R5 - it sure looks tasty. We chat about what to do when your images have a really green colour cast; and then we get on a bit of a rant about photographers who try to blame software for their own laziness (it's quite entertaining).

Happy 2020 Snappers! In our first episode of the decade, we talk about the various Canon EOS R mark ii rumours. If these rumours are to be believed, it looks like Canon have listened to users and are making a camera (or, several cameras) that fix all our issues with the current EOS R. We jump into these rumoured specs and then ask the big question: would a dual card slot EOS R make us move back to Canon? Or are we now Sony 4 lyf-ers? We also take a deep look into a listener question regarding how to handle a couple who cancels a few weeks before the wedding, and demands their entire payment back. It's a frustrating scenario that no doubt we'll all have to deal with at some stage or other, so tune in to hear our take! Looking for an amazing CRM tool for photographers?

Hey Snappers! Look, we want you to get home safe. We know at the end of the wedding you're tired, you're sugar-crashing after eating too much cake and the last thing you want to do is drive a few hours to get home. In episode 79 we chat about things you can do to help get home safely. Red bulls, coffee, podcasts, and... pinching your earlobes. We also talk about how often you should replace your memory cards, what happens when you miss groom's reaction face and incorrectly identifying a groomsman as the groom's Dad (oops).

Love this podcast. Hosts are genuinely likable and I've related to so many of the off tangent stories. Small insights into the photography world without being too heavy on anything technical, recommended for professionals in the business and newcomers too. Cheers. Matthew Bright Photography
