I’ve discovered some brilliant photography podcasts and wanted to share them with you today.
These podcasts are packed full of great tips, advice and insight into how to operate and grow your photography business. So they are undoubtedly a fantastic resource for any professional or aspiring photographer.
I would urge you to check them out.
Sprouting Photographer – The business of photography with Brian Caporicci and Robert Nowell
This is my favourite photography podcast at the moment.
There are now two episodes of Sprouting Photographer per week. A new episode is released every Tuesday and Thursday.
Brian and Robert have recorded well over 300 episodes at the time of writing this, so there is an extensive back catalogue which you can dive into at any time.
They interview leading photographers from around the world. They also talk alone or together about topics relating to running a successful photography business.
Recent topics they’ve covered include how to create a content marketing plan, photography pricing mistakes, and how to create your ideal workflow.
The Six Figure Photography podcast with Ben Hartley
Host Ben Hartley is a successful international photographer and photography educator, based in the US.
He interviews professional photographers and shares advice about how to grow your professional photography business into a six-figure enterprise.
I particularly enjoyed his recent interview with renowned photographer Jasmine Star (episode 40). In that one, they talked about the future of social media and common mistakes that photographers are making on social.
The Evolve Your Wedding Business podcast with Heidi Thompson
This one is specifically for wedding photographers, as the name suggests. But much of the advice shared could also apply to other genres of photography.
A new episode is released every other Wednesday, and there are over 100 episodes to check out at the time of writing. Heidi interviews wedding photography experts and also offers solo training.
Recent topics have included mastering Google Analytics, how to raise your prices, email marketing, the importance of mindset in business, and how to get more leads and enquiries.
