This podcast explores what it means to live a photographic life. What does it mean to be an artist who uses the medium of photography to express themselves artistically to the world. What subjects do we choose and why? How are we influenced by other photographers, art, and the world in general? You won't find any gear-talk, camera reviews, or Photoshop tips here, but rather, you'll find an exploration of our relationship to photography as we continue to refine our vision, our craft, and our art.

    ToP #0147: Winter Photography Tips w/ Alex Soh

    Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow! As winter approaches it's important to be safe outside and it's helpful to know a few tips ahead of time.  On this episode I talk with Alex Soh, travel and landscape photographer from Singapore, about details we should be aware of and look for while shooting outside in the winter.  Just because it's cold out doesn't mean you shouldn't be out there shooting!

Very Nice Podcast Suite

When you put the Improve Photography podcasts together as a whole it is quite an amazing tour de force for everyone. Brian brings great gear reviews and some interesting interviews with today's best photographers. Keep up the incredible work over there at IP!

Brian Rocks

I really enjoy this podcast! I love how Brian is always advocating for community in the photography industry. Every week it's something new and you never know what you're going to get so I say tune in each week and see if it's something you're interested in and if not...listen anyway because it could be something you could become interested in. If I had to say one thing that could make this podcast better would be to make it shorter.
