Tripod Q&A (EP-42)
I have learned an immense amount of information from these podcasts! The guys shoot with different brands of cameras, have different styles, and travel all over the world. They're funny and well-spoken. It's a joy to listen to this podcast!
Love this podcast! (But it needs more women!)
I just binge-listened to every episode on a solo photography trip and loved every episode! Very useful information, even if it's just opening my mind to new ways of thinking.
One thing I would change - I didn't hear a single feminine voice on the podcast. I know landscape photography is male-dominated, but I feel a little like I'm intruding on a boys club. I think it would open up the listener demographic to occasionally add a femine voice.
Great Information and Hosts
If you are looking for a great photography show, this is it. Provides great information and tips/tricks for us to use. I have learned so much I can't thank the hosts enough !
