Podcasts are a great resource for free information that you can consume while you are working, driving, working out, or when you are trying to knock out the backlog of weddings @ 11pm on Sunday evening. I have listened to podcasts for years and I truly feel they have made an impact in both my personal and business life. Today I share 10 of the podcasts I am subscribed to that help me stay on top of the photography industry as well as focus on building my business.
