This is episode #4 of the Camera and Inspiration show at “PPN - Photo Podcast Network” for July 2017.


  • Marco picks this month inspirational photographer: Robert Doisneau - French photographer (1912 - 1994). If the name does not ring a bell his most famous photo “The Kiss” probably will. He is considered a master of humanistic photography and has left us an incredible portfolio of amazing everyday street scenes from Paris that most people simply ignored or didn’t have an eye for.
  • With vacation time coming up, Scott and Marco discuss if you should bring a camera on your time off and what to consider to make this an enjoyable experience for yourself as well as the non-photographers that may travel with you.
  • How to research the location in terms of photographic opportunities before your trip.
  • Take the opportunity of not having a client decide what you should shoot, and try something totally different from your normal photography.
  • Eliminating unnecessary gear by answering the why and what you want to photograph before you go on your trip.
  • Less gear on a trip = less worries and more fun. Always keep that in mind!
  • Use the opportunity to work on your visual storytelling skills by documenting your trip in a way, that 20 images describe the whole trip to a viewer without you having to write a single word to explain it.

About this show:
