Inspiring and informative

This is my fortnightly inspiration. Honest conversations with amazing photographers. Ben Smith delivers a great blend of sympathetic but direct — and sometimes challenging — questions.

Honest and Useful

I find this one of the best and perhaps the only honest photobolog, that occasionally asks difficult questions IMHO.

Always inspirational

I never miss an episode of Bens podcast. It is always fascinating to gain insight into the lives and practice of other photographers- not so much the technique but what actually motivates and shapes there work. Really grateful for the time and effort that goes into these interviews
