I've been using an iPhone almost as long as there's been an iPhone to use (with the exception the recent two-year-disaster called the HTC Thunderbolt). And yet, until yesterday, I had never listened to a podcast! But I've discovered that they're a perfect way to while away my one-hour-each-way commute. I've found a couple podcasts that I really enjoy, and I think that if you're into photography, you will too:
- The Digital Photo Experience - The Digital Photo Experience by Rick Sammon and Juan Pons. Bringing you the best photography tips, advice, news and information. Both Rick and Juan live and breathe photography and are always eager to share with you what they know. New episodes twice a month, at the beginning and middle of the month. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us! You can reach us at www.dpexperience.com The Digital Photo Experience, where YOU are the focus.
- Improve Photography - Jim Harmer and Dustin Olsen from the popular Improve Photography blog answer photography questions in their down-to-earth style. The show is a weekly 45-minute podcast focused primarily on photography questions from listeners around the world. Listeners praise the show for staying on topic while still throwing in a little humor as the hosts discuss cutting-edge photography tips and techniques. One listener said, "The Improve Photography Podcast is awesome because Jim and Dustin have a special skill for answering very advanced level photography techniques in a way that even the beginning photographers can understand. They don't talk down to newer photographers, but they don't ignore the advanced photography tricks either. They have a vast knowledge of photography expertise and I never miss an episode. Love it!"
- The Candid Frame - Not a "how-to" or even a "why-to" - more of a "doing it now" podcast with successful photographers. The Candid Frame features interviews with photographers at the top of their game like Vincent Versace, or Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalists, or even legends whose images have made (or recorded) history. Not every photographer interviewed will be doing the type of work that I like to do, but every show has captured my attention in a different way. The experiences and philosophies shared are fascinating to me as I find my way in my craft. Extremely valuable (and entertaining) to anyone interested in photography.
