Photographers, Photos, and Taking the Piss

I have been trying almost every photography podcast out there to satisfy my curiosity to listen to people in the field of photography talk about their trials and tribulations. Unfortunately, listening to “experts” talk about photography is about as exciting as watching a dance troupe writhe and move to their interpretation of industrial architecture.

A few weeks ago, I was day dreaming of going back to Ireland, so I began browsing iTunes for Irish podcasts. When I came across The Irish Photographers Podcast. I figured, I love photography, and I love Ireland, so why not give it a go.

The podcast is hosted by three Irish photographers, Diarmuid O’Donovan, John Meyler, and Darren J. Spoonley. All three live in different counties in Ireland, but they try to get all three in the same place (virtually if necessary) to talk about photography. The three men take turns hosting episodes, and their rule is, the host is in charge of the topics and questions for that particular podcast.

What I love most about the podcast is that it is not rehearsed. These three speak off the cuff, meaning the host may have an idea of what they want to say, but the other two have no advance knowledge of what that week’s topic will be. I have listened to too many podcasts that get their facts from the internet and regurgitate them back to their audience ad nauseam. The Irish Photographers Podcast goes against traditional photography podcasts by allowing these three photographers to agree on certain topics, but once in awhile they disagree, and that’s when the fun really begins. To hear these three take the piss out of each other is just too much fun.

My only suggestion is that they need to work on the volume levels of the podcast. Having three people in three different locations comes through in the audio volume, and when they do remote podcasts from camera clubs or product previews, they should be more aware of their guests and have them speak clear and intelligibly.

I have enjoyed listening to The Irish Photographers Podcast and felt the need to leave a positive review, so these photographers know that people like me are listening and appreciate the hard work and craic they put into the podcast.
Keep it up lads. Slainte!
