Welcome to pocast number 72!  Although we originally planned to do a Skype interview with Mike Mathews, we decided to make a change since Fred is going to go down to Naples to attend the first day of Adam Jones' and Mike Mathews' poison dart frog workshop.  We will feature that interview along with the incredible images Fred will bring back with him on the next podcast.  For this podcast, Charles MacPherson was in town to do a birding workshop, so Jim caught up with him and did a live interview in the field.  Charles was interviewed a few episodes back regarding his polar bear workshop.  Charles also does a fall foliage workshop and light house tour.  Charles' website is www.theamazingimage.com - we recommend you check it out and subscribe to his newsletter!

Jim is leaving for Iceland the day this podcast first goes live and will also have some news and images of that trip on the next podcast!

In the news, award-winning photographer Steve McCurry has published the photos taken with the last roll of Kodakchrome, Dell has announced a new line of monitors that cover 99% of the AdobeRGB color gamut, and a German artist is looking to take a portrait camera on tour that takes full life size film!

Jim and Fred now have Fotobug email addresses - Jim@thefotobug,com and Fred@thefotobug.com - drop us an email!
