Best podcast ever

So glad that I found this podcast. Living on a cattle property I have so many images of cows, horses, barb wire, birds etc, but I’m looking to take the next step and photograph people, and come up with new ways to shoot cows, horses, barb wire, birds etc. Not only entertaining, but informative and creative, I have also been taking you girls with me mustering and listen along while chasing cows. I have just purchased my first lights, Godox 200, and will be practising on friends and family soon. I have only listened to the first 53 episodes and I am really looking forward to listening to them all, so much to learn. Thanks again.

The best photography podcast

I’ve spent a large amount of time listening to recent episodes, and going through the the back catalog. Gina and Val cover a broad range of topics, in an entertaining and informative way and take time to explain in an easy to grasp way. I’ve learnt so much about the craft and business of Photography from them. 10 out of 5 stars from me. :-D
