I was thinking that it was about time I did a shameless plug for the Large Format Photography Podcast, so here it is!

The LFPP is a bi-weekly show hosted by myself and Andrew Bartram with some very interesting guests such as Ben Horne, Brendan Barry, Alys Tomlinson and most recently, John Boyce - the owner of Odyssey De Vere.

Here's a link, and feel free to make comments here.

I've only listened to the first couple so far (classic lenses is more relevant for me & required listening every week).
To be honest the time spent listening to your LF podcast, is still longer than the time I've spent using my Toyo monorails.

If the CLP is more relevant to you then that's great! There are a lot of podcasts out there and staying focussed on the ones that matter to you personally is pretty important otherwise fatigue sets in. Fortunately, I enjoy making the two shows, in part because they are quite different in style and content.

Indeed.

My current favourite is 'All Through A Lens'. It's the sheer enthusiasm that gets me. The stock question "What have you been up to.." can elicit such casual replies as strapping a Nikonos to her back and paddling like hell out into the water to get shots of surfers. And getting rolled in the process. A real antidote to the 'middle aged blokes bored with their own lack of imagination' style of photography podcast that has seeped into what has become something of a Cartel, and is serving as a glass ceiling for the young enthusiasts who are actually driving this area of photography. Or indeed, and strangely, those podcasters simply displaying a lack of enthusiasm to talk about old lenses, and so turn to 'personality', believing they have them. They collect (or deal in) lenses for goodness sake. Talk about that.

Another Podcast of note for me is The Future of Photography, which has on board a philosopher, a tech head, an artist and an 'enthusiast next door'. Again, it's their genuine interest in the subject that grabs me.

Others that are for me:

Film Photography Podcast (of course).
Homemade Camera Podcast.
The Hypersensitive Photographers Podcast (sadly missed).

I met up with Ade from S16/Future of Photography and a good chat with him and David Allen about how irrelevant the mindset of current photographers is in terms of where photography is going to go. I think I'm more likely to become the past rather than the future.

I understand your feelings towards the convergence between some podcasts and there's definitely a problem with "the guest circuit", but when podcast hosts become friends with other hosts, then there's bound to be increased interaction between shows. I disagree that established shows act as a barrier to new shows, for instance, All Through a Lens and the Hypersensitive Photographers Podcast (new show out soon BTW) exist because of other podcasts, the same is true of many other podcasts over the last 12 months. If podcasts move away from a listeners preference, then other shows are there ready and waiting.

Specialist shows tend to move towards podcasters activities because there is only so much that can be said about specialist subjects before it gets very repetitive. Repetition is significant issue for podcasts and this is a big driver for shows to expand there discussions beyond the original remit of a show.

I appreciate that thoughtful reply. Thank you.

And make sure you let everyone know when you've got Lina Bessanova on your show. Like 1 Good lad. She probably has the best LF darkroom in the world....ever.

Actually, the Branco Ottico folks too if you can get any on.

I have to say. I listened to the episode with Kate Miller-Wilson. What a superbly done interview. Congrats.

I'm now going through the rest. You got me.

Thanks!

I have to say that it was one of the best shows we did last year, it was one of the shows that made a mark on me.
