Rural Lifestyle Photographer Al Mabin
In Episode #19 of the Photowalk Guys Podcast, we interview Australian young entrepreneur of the Year and 3 times best seller Alyce Mabin who gives us insight into being a rural lifestyle photographer, taking a risk and self publishing your own coffee table book which she sold out in the first week! 🙂
And if that isn’t enough for our ear drums; Rob reviews what is now one of his favourite photography locations in the history of the world – the pristine Dove Lake in Tasmania. The Ben review the Canon, yes Canon, 50mm f1.2 lens. We also speak about the upcoming Mount Tomah photowalk and say a big thank you to everyone that left us a review on iTunes and commented on the website.

Photowalk Guys News
We had our biggest response yet to people leaving us virtual high 5’s in iTunes, which is great… Because it lets other know that they are enjoying the podcast and it is worth listening too. A very big thank you to Harald Saltis Photography, Peter_1960 and philliby777.
We greatly appreciate your support! =)
In Episode #18, Ben issued a snap challenge for someone to comment on every single podcast that we have done so far. Rob then backed that challenge up with a prize, which would be a copy of his Sydney eBook – ‘Sydney, 30 Locations in 30 Days‘.
We were over the moon and to be honest a little surprised as well, to have Jason Creer complete the challenge. This means that Jason spent the time, listened to each episode and then went through and commented on each episode within the Photowalk Guys website.
A big thank you to Jason and we hope that he enjoys the eBook. 🙂
The Beautiful Dove Lake:
Rob rates Dove Lake as being in his top 3 photography locations in Australia and we are sure that if you have been to Dove Lake then you will understand. In this episode of the podcast, Rob and Ben both chat about this location, the places to visit and what happened to Rob in the car park.
We finally look at an actual Canon lens! 😉
Lina Hayes, who is the Canon Lens Ambassador for Oz Lens Rental, recently road tested the Canon 50mm f1.2 on both an engagement and newborn Photoshoot. Lina was that impressed with the lens that she went out and purchased one. Ben chats about the lens, what he thinks about it and what Lina said about it.
Al Mabin Photography Interview:
Alice Mabin chats with the photowalk guys about what it is like to be a photographer in the Australian Outback and risk it all on self publishing her own book. Al talks about where the idea of the book came from, putting it all together, selling it and why she is about to do it all again. Al is great and answers all of the hard hitting and Ray Martin like questions that the guys come up with. 😉
This was a fantastic interview, one which Al shares loads of great stories and information and one which we think that you will absolutely love! 🙂
Remember too that Alice is giving away a signed copy of her book ‘The Drover’ to the person that leaves the ‘best one-liner about Australia’ in the comments below. Good luck! 🙂
