The Family Photographer 29: Xanthe Berkeley on Making Family Films

Today’s show is a interview with Xanthe Berkeley. Xanthe is a mother of two boys who lives in London. She loves making photos and films of her life. She also teaches others how to make every day films of their lives.

In today’s conversation Xanthe talks about why she loves making films, and how she makes them. If you are familiar with her work, you will enjoy hearing her talk about how she doesn’t crash when filming herself biking.

We talk about the music she uses in her films and why you can’t just use your favorite tunes in the films you post on Facebook. xanthe’s makes films every weekend – She talks about how she keeps it fresh and challenges herself. We talk about the courses she’s teaching these days and what she enjoys most about teaching people how to make time capsule films. This conversation really encouraged me to make more little movies of life – even if I don’t have time to edit them at the moment. I hope you too are inspired by this conversation with Xanthe Berkely.

  1. I pretty much sat here today nodding, tearing up, nodding, tearing up. Everything you guys were talking about is it exactly how I feel and what I tell my clients almost daily. And although I spend my working day capturing the EveryDay and the BigDays for others, next week I’m taking a week off from editing for my for clients and I’m going to concentrate solely on capturing EVERYTHING that is so precious to me, my hubby and my little man. He’s going to be 4 in December. He’s no longer a baby. He’s no longer a toddler. He’s going to be a boy. A proper little boy. Changing before my eyes. Thank you for inspiring me again Jenny and Xanthe and getting me back on the wagon to document my own life and not just those of others (as I slip under the desk overloaded with editing, admin and more editing. Love you both & your podcast. xxx
