For the past few years Chris Porsz had wandered tirelessly the streets of Peterborough, England to find familiar faces he photographed nearly 40 years earlier in order to shoot a reunion. Please enjoy my conversation with my good friend Chris about his Reunions project and book.
Chris Porsz is a paramedic by night and a street photographer by day. When he is not exploring other large European cities with his camera, he wanders tirelessly the streets of Peterborough, England in his quest to find familiar faces he photographed 30 years earlier in order to shoot a reunion. For Chris, it’s all about the love for mankind and the desire to record the history of his hometown one photograph at a time. Finally, his project was completed with a series of over 100 reunions and a book recently published.

This week, photographer Bob Soltys is on the show to talk about portfolio reviews, how to prepare for them, how to make a good first impression, how to deal with rejections and how to do better next time.
Bob Soltys’ love of photography began in 1967, when his aunts gave him a Kodak Instamatic camera for Christmas. He has been a photographer and a writer since 1971, when the weekly paper bought his photos of fellow high school students protesting a teachers’ strike that would have prevented seniors from graduating. Shortly after that, he began photographing weddings, and he continues to capture the joy of living in small towns, at weddings and on the street with black and white film. A former Navy officer, Bob is the coauthor of A Lucky Life, a book about Lucky, his Jack Russell Terrier. He and Lucky live in Northeast Ohio.
