Love this podcast

I have been listening to Sharky for years. I can’t seem to get enough of his wit, knowledge and style. This show offers in-depth insight into the industry as well different perspectives on photography. Sharky knows his stuff!

Mr FTP ,

Go back to the “no name photo show”

The “no name photo show”was much more interesting.Also A LOT less commercials also.
