The Creative Process

There are lots of photography podcast that discuss gear. There are few photography podcast that discuss the creative process. There are fewer still that discuss the creative process with the articulation, philosophical insight, and lived-experience presented by On Taking Picture. If you are photographer - or for that matter, a creative of any kind - you have to subscribe to this program. - Noah Stephens
