It’s #TravelTuesday which means I, Dave Williams, am here with something from the world of photography, and today is no different. I write today from the UK where I’m still waiting for a part to affix to my van before I head off into the sunset to create more epic content and YouTube videos.
Today I want to tell you about what are, in my opinion, the best photography podcasts. The list comes in no particular order. Let’s go!
He Shoots He Draws is up first. Presented by Dave Clayton and Alan Hess, formerly presented by Glyn Dewis, this podcast explores the viewpoints of a photographer and a graphic designer. The podcast is geared around creativity, photography, graphic design, business, and life. Readers will find straight, honest advice and opinions that come from the hosts and their guests, every week. You’ll find the podcast here.
Camera Shake Podcast is up next. Hosted by Kersten Luts and Nick Kirby, who are both photographers, videographers and musicians, this podcast brings people together and digs deep into personalities. Born out of lockdown, this podcast is aimed at two things – highlighting the hosts opinions on tech, and finding out all about famous photographers. This podcast is a great read and you can find it here.
Photography Daily is a podcast presented by Neale James who is joined by other photographers who tell their stories whilst he takes a photo walk. Neale has a broadcasting background and it’s conveyed in this high quality and entertaining podcast that also touches on tech developments and inspires photographers to get out with their camera just like Neale does while he talks to us. You can find his podcast here.
The Epic Photography Podcast is the brand new kid on the block, and it’s has a unique format. It actually launches tomorrow and I host episode one. The concept is that there are 11 hosts on rotation who bring together a wealth of experience from across the world. The hosts are Scott Kelby, Erik Kuna, Cathy Baitson, Peter Treadway, Roberto Pisconti, Fernando Santos, Sian Elizabeth, Gilmar Smith, Stephanie Richer, Mimo Meidany, and me. You can find the podcast here.
We all know that at times we can lose our creative flow and need to do something to bring it back, which usually means inspiring ourselves. Podcasts are a great way to find this inspiration whilst simultaneously learning from the experience and opinion of others. All of the podcasts I’ve mentioned above do a great job of entertaining us whilst provoking the creativity within us and inspiring us to get out and shoot. I’d love you to listen to the Epic Photography Podcast tomorrow when it launches, and to explore the others in the list if you haven’t already.
