This week we have a guest post from Christian Parkinson of the image Junkies site. We often talk about new developments on the show but this week we are going back in history a little. Christian talks to news shooter, Richard Atkinson - who’s been in the business since the 70’s and is still at the cutting edge of this ever evolving business. Since the interview was recorded Richard has mastered FCPX and brought himself an FS7. Christian talks with Richard about his career, the technology and his philosophy on shooting. 

Remember if you love shooting, telling stories and learning about our business then you should subscribe to Chrsitian’s site imagejunkies and receive your free ebook “Life saving travel tips for journalists”.
