Incredible FREE resource

I adore this podcast and the heart behind it. It is by far the best educational photography podcast I have ever listened to (and I love photography podcasts). I have implemented many of their tips in my own photography business and they have changed so many things in good ways. The training they give is of a quality I have never heard of being free before. Normally you would pay a lot for what they teach. I also love the intermixed narrative podcast episodes and especially loved their interviews with other industry leaders. Well done!
