Great Podcast!

I have rented several lenses and studio lighting from Lensrentals. Always in great shape and good working order. I particularly like the tape they give to repackage and return. Great business to work with.

Pretty cool

Not gonna lie, I only subscribed for an entry in the giveaway. However, the podcast is actually good.

Great for those interested in gear

Love learning about photography gear and professional tips from Roger and his colleagues. From a hobbyist photographer trying to learn as much as I can.
