Constant education and inspiration are important in photography. The worlds best photographers will share the fact that they’re constantly learning and refining their skills. A great way to get this inspiration is through podcasts that we can listen to in the background when we edit images. There have been a few new podcasts come onto the scene during and after lockdown. Here’s the DIY Photography list of great photography podcasts for you to listen to.
This podcast features a photographer and a designer as hosts – namely Alan Hess and Dave Clayton. They bring together a wealth of knowledge and experience, both being accomplished authors and experts in their fields. Their show offers a weekly dive into creativity, business, photography, design, and life. They’re straight-talking and funny, and their show features guests who complement the conversation.
Steve Brazill, a seasoned concert photographer and radio host, has created something sensational here. Every episode features a special guest and is all about one thing: getting inside their mind!
