There are so many compelling reasons for a photographer to create a podcast – and you don't have to be a pro. For the keen storyteller, recording interviews enables you to engage with other creatives and bring their narratives to a wider audience. It's also a great way to expand your own network. Going solo is another option, and you could put together episodes on anything from commentaries on your images to gear reviews, or opinion pieces on topical news from the photo industry.

From a marketing perspective, podcasting works well as a brand extension – something that doesn’t make your photo business money in itself, but helps to increase exposure and awareness of it. There’s a reason why so many celebrities and high-profile individuals have jumped onto the platform in recent years.
