Katie Melua on Shooting the “Album No.8” Cover with Film – Interview by Sroyon Mukherjee

Katie Melua’s latest album, Album No.8,  came out on October 16th. It’s the Georgian-British singer-songwriter’s eighth studio album (hence the name), and also her eighth consecutive UK top 10 album. I knew her music from hits like Nine Million Bicycles and The Closest Thing to Crazy (which came out when I was in high school), but Album No.8 is the first where she wrote all the lyrics, drawing on influences as diverse as Virginia Woolf and The Grateful Dead.

Bringing a New M-Mount Sonnar Lens to Market – An Interview with Chris Andreyo, Skyllaney Opto-Mechanics

I’m not always the most responsive person when it comes to messages on instagram, but something about this particular account caught my eye. We had a little bit of a chat on the direct message chat on there, and it soon became clear that what his organisation was doing was both something that interested me on a personal level and also something that I would really like to bring a bit of attention to through the blog. We soon agreed to a bit of an email interview. The following is the outcome of that conversation:

The State of the Film Photography Industry at the turn of 2020 – An interview with Charys Schuler, Editor, PhotoKlassik International

I little while ago, I got chatting to Marwan and Charys from SilvergrainClassics, the organisation that publishes Photoklassik International Magazine. After a bit of to and fro, I suggested it might be a nice idea to do a bit of an email interview with Charys about the magazine as well as the wider film photography community and industry. So as we enter into a new decade, I thought it a good time to share that conversation. As Charys talks about, all isn’t perfect in our community or industry, but things are definitely on the up, and there’s a lot to feel very positive about!
