photographers in the world for your listening pleasure.

The content of the show is all photography talk, all the time. If you missed
hearing something important, you can go back and replay it again and again.

share their exciting experiences while giving hints and tips on how they get
the job done. Find out what kind of equipment they use and what they recommend.



You will also hear industry leaders make important major announcements that
will affect your photography. You will find out about major trade shows in the
industry.



What does it feel like flying in the chase plane of space Ship One, photographing
one of the historical events of your lifetime. How do you hold your breath when
the horses of the Kentucky Derby are coming around the final turn and you alone
are responsible to record this spectacular moment? Do you know what kind of
camera Oscar nominated Jeff Bridges prefers? Do you know how many photographers
cover the Indy 500? What is it like being a photographer in the NFL? You just
