Are you curious about starting a photography podcast? I ran a photography podcast – I Like Your Picture – with my wife, Lee, as co-hosts for five years. Here’s what I learned that can help you create a podcast that your audience loves.

Recording the show was always fun, but other aspects were time-consuming and a bit tedious.

Did we need to do everything that we included in our production line? Maybe not. In hindsight, some of the advice I got about podcasting missed the mark.

That’s why I want to share some experiences and insights so you can decide if a photography podcast is right for you and how you can get the most out of the experience.

Why Start A Photography Podcast?

There are plenty of articles telling you why you should start a podcast. They give answers like these:

  • It’s easy
  • You can help others
  • It’s great to build your personal brand
  • Make money!

I can think of a few different reasons to start a photography podcast.

  • Do it as a passion project
  • Use it to network with other photographers with interviews
  • Promote your products & services to a specific audience

Most people get the impression that it’s easy. You hit the record button, talk for a while, upload to a podcasting host, then stand back as your listeners flock to hear your voice.

As with most content creation, there’s more to it than that.
