Neil van Niekerk welcomed me into his fabulous studio in Little Falls, New Jersey. We had, unintentionally, picked a particularly hot and humid day to record our chat. It happened while I was on a short holiday in New York with my lovely wife, Caroline.
The rising temperature and humidity meant that the studio air conditioning was on at full blast so inevitably there is background noise on this recording. Please ignore that and focus instead on what Neil has to say during our fascinating conversation.
Neil has a magical quality about his work as a photographer, educator, author and businessman. Hopefully, while you to listen to his experiences, thoughts and suggestions some of that magic might be of benefit to you too? Rather do what I usually do in these notes and describe what we chatted about I invite you to jump right in and listen well.
(BTW Neil refers to this photograph by Elliot Erwin you will have to listen to find out why)

Thank you for listening to the past, current and future episodes of Photography 121. You keep listening to them and I’ll keep recording them!
Best wishes
p.s. This portrait of Neil was created by me in his studio on the day of our conversation
