Haven’t found anything else like it.

I tend to dip in and out of Ben’s podcasts. Each episode stands in its own, and the self deprecating style of the interviewing never detracts from the guests. One for anybody who is curious about photographers and their motivation.

Easily the best in it’s format...

I’ve listened to A Small Voice on and off for a number of years. So easy to listen to, whilst also completely engaging- I’m not exaggerating when I say it’s the best photographer-interview format. Ben always gives the photographers space to talk and doesn’t talk over them (that sounds pretty basic but listen to a few other podcasts and you’ll see what I mean..), whilst also managing to keep them on-topic- which gives this wonderful range of perspectives on photography as you listen across the series. You end each episode really feeling like you have a good idea of how each thinks about their own practice and often a good sense of how each photographer got to wherever they are. In an industry where there really isn’t a road map or clear lines of progression when you start, i think its always helpful to hear how other people manage to make their lives and photography work together. The podcast has recently been keeping me company more and more on long drives North from London so I felt it was a good time to share how useful and enjoyable it’s been over the last couple of years.

Thanks so much for all your hard work Ben- it’s a really fantastic resource and I wish you continued success with it in the future!

Ben is a genius

I listen to these podcasts on the way to & from work. So insightful into why, how and the energy being a photographer really takes.

Ben’s podcasts are with all kinds of photographers from street photographers to advertising shooters. Every single listen I feel grounded in my career and life - others share the same connections, paths, anxieties etc.

The honesty and warmth that comes through Ben’s subjects as well as he himself is life affirming.
