Thought I would give a quick mention to a few of my favorite photography related podcasts.
These are a great way to learn about photography and keep up with the latest news, issues, tips and just general geeking out about photography. The great thing is you can listen while your on the go. I'm always listening during the drive to and from work, during editing and even in bed before going to sleep.
For those who don't know, podcasts are like free radio programs (many also have video) available from iTunes or directly from the various photographers web sites etc..
Just download and sync with your iPhone or what ever mp3 player you may have, or just listen/watch on your pc. You can also subscribe to the shows so that every time you sync your iPhone etc.. with iTunes the new shows will automatically be downloaded and copied to your phone ready to listen to anytime.
Ok so here's the list starting with video podcasts or "Vodcasts"
Great for gear reviews and tips etc..
D Town TV: Probably "the go to" for photography shows. Always entertaining and educational. Hosted by Rafael "RC" Concepcion and Larry Becker..
Chase Jarvis Photography:
Such a creative and awesome photographer. Chase shows his gear, technique and talks to fellow artists.
Critique & Technique for photographers:
Never have I learnt so much about critiquing photos than from this show. Very educational and pretty damn funny at times. Unfortunately I think not in production anymore. But theres quite a few there to watch anyway.
The Grid: A little like D Town TV but mostly just discussing whats going on in the world of photography. Hosted by Scott Kelby and Matt Kloskowski
Lightroom Killer Tips:
So much great free info and tips about using Lightroom with Matt Kloskowski.
There is a separate show of course for Photoshop but as I don't need to use that program as much as Lightroom I don't bother watching it.
Run by Leo Leporte. There is already a TWIP (This week in Photo) which has been around for ages so I don't know why TWIT (This week in Tech) decided to make a video version but its pretty good anyway.
Tips from the top floor:
The longest running photography podcast (I'm pretty sure) now up to 500+ episodes and hosted by Chris Marquardt. Lots of great tips, pholosiphy and general geekery. Great!
TWIP (This week in Photo)
Probably the 2nd oldest photography podcast after Chris Marquardt's show. TWIP is hosted by Fredrick Van Johnson and 3 or 4 other hosts. Great for photography news but recently they go on too much with advertising and sponsors talk.
The Pro Photo Show:
Gavin Seim hosts this all pro photography talk show. Not for beginners and just chatting and rants about all things pro photography. Great show!
Scott Bourne runs this all beginners ~ advanced photography Q & A podcast. Love this show and learn something new pretty much every episode.
Martin Bailey Photography podcast:
Hosted by my mate Martin from here in Japan. He talks about his landscape and nature photography. Also covers tips and techniques. His podcast is also an "enhanced podcast" meaning he you can see the images he's talking about as the show is running even though its an audio podcast. Visit Martin's site here.
The Photo Mojo Show:
Run by a couple of my friends Mitch and Willis in Brisbane, Australia. They talk all things photography, new gear and the like. I was a guest on a few of their earlier episodes.
So that rounds up just a few of the photography podcasts I frequently listen to everyday. There are lots of other great ones more on just specific areas of photography but these are for the most part general all around photography talk.
