I heard good things about Sony mirrorless cameras but was hesitant to switch systems – when you have thousands of pounds worth of equipment of one camera system, this could be a costly move so I was fully prepared to patiently wait for Canon to release a dual-slot mirrorless camera, but…

I’m so excited for this – my interview with The Family Photographer podcast is out! Jenny Stein and I chat about many different things, from how I got into photography and what it means to me, how I photograph families and what I want them to see in the photos I take, how to get brave and get into photos with your kids, and lots of other random things our conversation took us to! Find it wherever you listen to podcasts – or click this link to listen to it.
