This is episode #6 of the Camera and Inspiration show at “PPN - Photo Podcast Network” for September 2017.


This show is sponsored by B&H:


  • Marco picks this month inspirational photographer: Gerda Taro (1910 - 1937) is known as the first female war photographer. She learned photography in her exile city of Paris, from a man that she fell in love with and who later called himself Robert Capa. They both passionately photographed during the Spanish civil war 1936. They wanted to fight with their cameras for the republic and against Franco and his regime. Many of the photos that were published under Capa’s name were actually captured by Taro. But at the time they were able to sell the images better under Capa’s name. That’s the reason why Gerda Taro was forgotten by history for many years. She died during a photo reportage in the Spanish civil war in 1937 and should be remembered for her contribution in documenting this event and most likely even for making Robert Capa famous and successful.


  • Marco shares some of his experiences after the tips that Scott gave us on the previous episode on how to become better at bird photography.
