Podcasts are becoming more and more popular and theres more and more of them to listen to! So here’s a pick of some great wedding photography podcasts for you to listen to.
Wedding Photography Podcasts
Podcasts have been a favourite thing of mine for some years now. It’s been a great way to take in information, kill time on a long journey and keep my photography mind feeling fresh! The podcasts listed here are the ones I’ve found myself coming back to because they either hit the creative itch, informative or just plain funny!
The podcast host Steve & Dustin are 2 guys you should definitely not take seriously. This podcast is all about letting out your silly side after a hard working day shooting a wedding and it really hits my funny bone!
They cover photography news, talk about their favourite beers, what recently has gone wrong in their lives, crazy questions and situations that pop up in relation to wedding photography all with good humour and banter and sometimes they actually throw in some good advice!
Love listening to this one and always feel a level of emptiness when there’s a week when there’s no podcast released.
Compared to the wedding photo hangover podcast, this one has quite the different take. Tone is more serious for sure, but always has some good tips or advice to take away from various parts of the wedding photography business.
Good ones to look out for are episodes #439 “How to design an effective Google ad campaign” , #429 “4 questions for better copy” and another podcast which i cant find about a company that makes and sells wedding albums which was an interesting view into how quality can really differ between album companies.
If you’re into documentary wedding photography then you must know about ThisIsReportage.com. Alan Law, the man behind TIR, started podcasting the other year and has been interviewing all the best documentary wedding photographers out there.
It’s always a light-hearted chat about how they got into photography, how they look at things, funny situations that have happened etc. Its always interesting to me listen to these great photographers chat about life and photography and really how they’re just normal people trying their best so always makes me feel better that I’m not a million miles away from achieving what they have.
Ninedots, like TIR, is a great photography association to be a member of. I’d highly recommend being a member, not just for the awards side of things, but actually the great learning resources they have. The awards normally have critique videos accompany them so has been great way to learn how to improve in that regard.
The podcast started the other year and has a mix of topical chat between the guys behind ninedots and interviews with great wedding photographers. Again like TIR its great to hear the stories behind different photographers and also little nuggets you can pick up from them.
This is in no way a wedding photography podcast, lets get that out there straight away! What it is though is a really interesting insight into some of the people behind the biggest companies in the world. How they started, how they grew, scaled and dealt with pitfalls along the way.
I included this because, even though we aren’t ever going to be an worldwide company, the people behind these companies were and are just normal people who started off with a little idea. Those stories always help when you feel things aren’t going your way or help you think about potential pitfalls that may come your way.
Lens Rentals is the worlds largest lens rental company. They have been dealing with everything camera related for many years now. Obviously there’s going to be alot of wisdom for them to pass on with dealing with so much equipment, but they also have a great USP in the fact the founder Roger Cicala is such a camera nerd and I mean we are talking serious nerd!
Always something interesting to learn, takes on gear ,tips on buying 2nd hand and always some really interesting rental stories!
