Recommended Photography Podcasts


In no particular order, this is a summary of photo-related podcasts I enjoy listening to on a regular basis. (For those using Android devices, and who may be new to this whole podcast thing, I'm a longtime fan of DoggCatcher, currently priced at $2.99. There are, of course, many other choices available in the Google Play store - ranging in cost from free to cheap.)

Film Photography Podcast - all about film, film cameras, and film-related news. The FPP is a fun show with a core of regulars who bring a variety of knowledge and creative backgrounds to the table.

The Kodakery - as the name suggests, it's a podcast focused on Kodak film, featuring interviews from a broad range of creatives who use film in their work.

PPN - Photo Podcast Network - several different monthly shows featuring seasoned photographers, Scott Bourne and Marco Larousse. Weighted towards mirrorless cameras and inspirational shows, along with helpful listener Q&A.

The Candid Frame: A Photography Podcast - Hosted by Ibarionex Perello, features in-depth interviews with a wide range of photographers, with a view towards culture and social issues.

The TWiP Network - What began as a single podcast (This Week in Photography) with Frederick Van Johnson, has exploded into a whole family of photography-related podcasts with a variety of hosts. There's something here for nearly every genre of photography.

LensWork - Photography and the Creative Process - A long-running podcast, featuring photographer Brooks Jensen. Each episode is short (under 10 minutes), but features a salient thought or idea relating to the creative life.

On Taking Pictures - A photography podcast featuring discussions between hosts Bill Wadman and Jeffery Saddoris. Sometimes the discussion wanders off into any number of esoteric and seemingly unrelated topics, but somehow they manage to keep it interesting.

Vision is Better - This isn't technically a podcast, but a YouTube broadcast, featuring humanitarian photographer, David DuChemin. His passion for cultivating photographic vision is contagious. When I need a kick in the rear to jolt my creativity, his videos, articles and books are just the fix.
