WT:007 Abandoned Building Photography
In episode 7 of our photography podcast we start the show off with something a little different… We act out a little intro specifically for this episode. More importantly we are joined by Alex Taylor of Visual Cocaine who is the abandoned building photography guru and pick his brain about this exciting, dangerous and controversial style of photography.
Plus we are in Melbourne and this podcast was recorded only a few hours after our Brighton Beach Photowalk, which was our very first one, out side of NSW.

Brighton Beach Photowalk
As mentioned, the Brighton Beach Photowalk has come and gone and while we had a lot of people who didn’t show up, we still had a great time meeting some new people and walking around taking photos of the colourful and iconic beach huts. We will have a few review up on the website soon. 🙂
Thank you Mix25
A very big thank you to Mix25 who left us a really nice 5 star review on iTunes. It is great to hear that people are enjoying the podcast and we really appreciate the reviews, especially as we get going with this photography podcast.
Brighton Beach the Location:
It seemed only obvious to review the Brighton Beach Huts on the show having only just come from there a few hours before. The Beach Huts are a great place to visit with your camera if you are already in Melbourne of travelling to this beautiful city. It is certainly a location that makes you think about your photography a little more in search of a shot that is a little unique.
Really Right Stuff, BH-55 Ballhead:
For those people that have spent a little bit of money on their tripods, and we as The Photowalk Guys suggest you do, you might notice that you will have an interchangeable head… In episode 007 we chat specifically about the Really Right Stuff BH-55 Ballhead, why both Ben and Alex love it and how much it will cost.
Abandoned Building Photography with Alex Taylor:
Our main topic for this episode of the photography podcast, is Abandoned Building Photography. Ben and Rob quiz our special guest Alex Taylor of Visual Cocaine about all things to do with this type of photography. Alex is fantastic and shares with us his knowledge, tips and opinions as we discuss things like; what is urbex photography, the morals around abandoned building photography, trespassing, the gear you should use, locations you might like to try and how this is one of the most dangerous styles of photography you can get into.
