TiR & TiR:F Christmas Party 2022!
Oh how we love our Christmas parties! It’s *so* fantastic to just be around so many lovely human beings, and just let loose – and 2022 was no exception, as photographers from all over Europe (including all over the UK, Netherlands, Germany and France) all came together on a party boat on the Thames in London, for one hell of a night….!

Podcast Episode 122: This is Dries Renglé
Finally I interview the man who has been mentioned by *so many* of my previous Podcast guests: The fab Dries Renglé! Dries is one of Belgium’s very best wedding photographers, was 7th in the World on TiR for 2021, has won 13 awards from us, and, as I mentioned, has been spoken about on so many of our previous episodes – he was even brought up at NineDots in London, which I just returned from last week (and it’s the reason why my voice is so hoarse, actually, totally lost it there!), within the fab Sanne De Block’s mainstage presentation. So fab to finally manage to chat to the man himself, who has had such a big impact on a lot of very talented photographers’ lives. Dries talks about so much on the episode today, including:
why it’s so important to shoot and show what you love,
how he captured one of his Reportage Awards,
tips on shooting portraits and couple time,
his previous life in animation,
shooting his very first wedding (which was his sister’s!)
being part of the Mind The Moment collective and the workshops they do,
and much more…
Podcast Episode 105: This is Phil Salisbury
An absolute pleasure to chat to the one and only Phil Salisbury for Podcast #105! Based in the UK, Phil recently won 4 Reportage Awards from us in our first Collection of 2022 – an incredible achievement – and he talks about a couple of those Awards on the episode today, as well as much more, including:
his journey to becoming a photographer and the transferable skills from his past jobs
shooting close and how he lights up the dancefloor (both with his flash and his dance moves…!)
his hatred of baked beans

top tips for improving your documentary coverage
thoughts on judging our This is Reportage: Family awards
