Today is a new Q&A and photo challenge episode and I invited Andy McSweeney AKA Andy McPhoto to co-host with me.
Andy McSweeney is a self-educated pro travel photographer and educator from Montreal Canada, away since 1994 (24 years) and living since 2002 in the Belgian city of Brugge (Bruges) Belgium. Since 2012 he's been focused as a photography guide and instructor as Photo Tour Brugge and has helped about 2000 guests towards better photos either in Brugge or beyond.
Client work outside of tours for Andy is mixed between some familiar corners of commercial travel photography from people to events to interiors and otherwise. Equally, he shoots plenty of landscapes, street life and Brugge details to provide sample photos during his photo tours as well as stories to share of this beautiful city he feels blessed to call home.
He has "photographer on the loose" on his business card because he feels that's basically the best way to describe what he happily does and and how he happily does it.

Andy's blog post we mentioned on the show: http://andymcsweeney.com/2016/01/22/photography-theft-prevention/
This week we answer the following questions:
"What safety precautions do you take while shooting in "touristy" areas, where thieves may be present?" Alex Chavez:
"I wear glasses and find it impossible to effectively use the display screen to take photos. I also hate, for various reasons, putting my eye up to the viewfinder when I have glasses on. I have set the diopter adjustment on my camera to the best setting for my eyes, but even so it's still like rolling the dice when I take a shot. Are there any tips or tools you think might be useful for someone like me? Thanks." Hj Daugherty
And the winners are...
Andy's pick: An entry by Will Scott
