I host a bi-weekly podcast called Filter. It’s similar to other photography podcasts, such as Improve Photography Podcast, Tips From The Top Floor, the Candid Frame and others.

Professional photographers never stop learning. At least that’s what I think. The business of photography can be a tricky one. We can work it out together on the podcast. Whether you’re a sprouting photographer, like a good photo podcast, or want to just be part of a digital story that revolves around photography, the Filter podcast is there.

Why did I start the Filter Photography Podcast?

The Filter Photography Podcast was created because I started to get a little sick of listening to photography podcasts that talked about photography gear, but didn’t discuss the actual technique of photography.

Photography gear is important, but I don’t listen to podcasts to hear gear reviews. I listen to podcasts to learn. Learning should be free, and since they are free photography podcasts,

Photography is a visual medium, so any audio podcast is going to make it difficult to truly connect with. I find when I listen to podcasts, they feel like they go forever. Sometimes they hit the two-hour mark! That’s far too long for my attention span, and I can’t think of any commute that lasts that long. When you hit resume for your trip home, you forgot what the podcast topic was even about!

The length of the average photography podcast is why I started Filter. Most episodes come in around the 15 minute mark, making them perfect for the morning or evening commute. Or maybe you just want to sip a coffee and hear someone talk about photography because your friends are sick of hearing you talk about it.

You might not know, but Filter started as an online community aimed at helping photographers become better at the art. It was a place where no one person knew anything. That just isn’t reality. We are all constantly learning and evolving to become better photographers. Other podcast hosts such as Derrick Story, Scott Bourne, Andrew Hellmuch and Chris Marquardt are great at delivering photography podcasts that don’t claim to know all the answers. They’re just hosts that are passionate about the art of photography.
