There's no such thing as too many (photography) podcasts.
Podcasting is booming and the number of new podcasts increases each day. I personally listen to at least two or three daily while driving to and from work. If you're like me, you'll find you can't go long without so much as thinking of a camera. What better way to fuel your obsession at home, at the gym, or while driving than with a great photography-related podcast?
Photographer Jordan Craig recently started On Capturing Stories as another personal side project (especially in the creative world, it's always smart to have many). "I began On Capturing Stories as an experiment to learn the steps of putting together a podcast while reconnecting with interesting people I've met," said Craig. The podcast features a ton of helpful information, such as what producers look for, camera setups, recording sound (for all the cinematographers out there), as well as interviews with professional photographers, and more.
One episode which I found particularly interesting and helpful is episode four, where Craig speaks with agency employee David Conlan on tips for approaching brands. "Dave is very insightful and has helped me understand what brands look for and how to interface with brands in general," said Craig.
Craig looks forward to the future in his latest episode, in which he asks the audience to send in their own suggestions and podcast ideas so he can give listeners what they're hoping to hear. I personally think this is a nice touch to On Capturing Stories because although it's common for podcast hosts to interact with their audience, Craig's genuine interest and intrigue with the "stories behind the images and sounds the public experiences every day" makes one feel like they're on his side of the interviewing table.
