    A tale of distractions

    A tale of distractions

    In episode 481 of the Perceptive Photographer, we dig into the different sides of distractions and how they can be both a benefit sometimes and a negative other times. Using examples like peaking at the back of the camera, over preparedness and should and coulds of photography, I discuss how so much of what we are distracted by take us out of the moment of connection behind the camera. That connection should be our goal, so I invite you to revisit and reconsider how you approach your things that seem to distract you in your work.

    What would your camera club be?

    What would your camera club be?

    In episode 479, the podcast delves into the idea of launching a camera club, exploring its potential members and the methods of discussing photography. In focusing on diversity of interests and backgrounds they may bring to the table, we can start to understand more about what we need from our photographic practice.. Additionally, I discuss the approaches to how photographs are discussed within the club setting, considering varying perspectives and approaches. In my club, the idea of and an inclusive environment where members can freely express their opinions and insights on photography to better understand who they are as photographers would win out over any contest.

    Five ways resistance can impact your photographic process

    Five ways resistance can impact your photographic process

    Hey everyone, Daniel Gregory here. In this episode, we're diving into the topic of resistance and how it can seriously mess with our creative flow. I'll be sharing some personal insights on how resistance shows up in different ways and what we can do to push through it. We'll talk about how resistance can actually serve a purpose, but also how it can hold us back from embracing change and trying new things. I'll also touch on how to overcome resistance when it comes to our photography work and how to find joy in the process again. Plus, we'll explore the idea of having multiple priorities can be a good thing, and how stubbornness can be a major creativity killer.

Food and medicine for the photographer's soul

This podcast helps ground me in my photography. In a craft that demands keeping up with technique and technology, it is easy to lose perspective. Every week, Daniel Gregory reminds us of the primary importance of the creative act and what really matters to us. This indeed is food and medicine for the photographer's soul.

Best photography podcast

Daniel Gregory makes me think! Probably the best teaching podcast on the air when it comes to philosophy, approach, and looking at my intentions when I go out to make a photograph. I have learned more from this podcast than from any class, be it high school, college, or workshop!!!

A weekly dose of creative inspiration

I have listened to this remarkable podcast every week for about 3 years. I love Daniel J Gregory’s insights into The why behind photography, and artistic expression as a whole. He speaks to my soul and I feel like I am back in my favorite BFA degree lectures every week. He is grounded and thoughtful in his words and delivery. This podcast speaks to my soul.
