Epson’s “Passion of Photography” Podcast Launches

As many readers of this site will know, I’m very passionate about photography, inkjet printing and podcasting. The following news item combines all three of those passions, and I waited a few weeks to listen to a number of the shows that have already been posted before writing this article. If you like to listen to photographers talking about their craft, and how they have been able to succeed in a photographic career, you will enjoy these audio interviews. Each show features a well-known photographer, interviewed by Scott Sheppard, Executive Producer and founder of Inside Mac Media, and host of Inside Digital Photo and Inside Mac Radio.


The guests as of this posting have been: Jack Reznicki, author, educator, commercial photographer, and President of the PPA (Professional Photographers of America); Bob Krist, world renown travel photographer; John Paul Caponigro, Photoshop Hall of Fame member, author of Adobe Photoshop Master Class, an educator and fine artist; and Vincent Versace, an educator, member of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals “Instructor Dream Team,” fine artist, and author of Welcome to Oz: A Cinematic Approach to Digital Still Photography with Photoshop.

Each photographer shares information and advice to the audience in their own unique way, and I highly recommend taking a listen. In my opinion, there is nothing like speaking with, or hearing the thoughts and advice of photographers who produce outstanding work.

The shows are part of the Inside Digital Photo show, which you can find out more about here. On the Inside Digital Photo website, you can subscribe to all of the shows through iTunes, or you can listen online to any of the programs. Just click on Passion of Photography from the “Browse by Topic” section to see all of the “Passion of Photography” interviews.
