The Future of Photography Retail

This weekend Michael Priddy and I recorded the official first episode of the fourth Futurilla Radio show Resolution, which we piloted last month. This time we recorded over Skype, with Mike at his adopted home in the Netherlands and myself here in the UK, and discussed the recent relaunch of camera retailer Jessops, which closed down 180+ stores in January. We're intrigued as to whether a refocused and slimmed-down photography retailer can prosper in an age of discounted web stores, digital sharing, and unlimited online advice. It's a topic we're bound to return to again as Jessops' strategy becomes clearer, and it's a great starting point for Resolution's examination of how digital continues to transform photography and image-making.
