Welcome to the This is Reportage wedding photography podcast and family photography podcast! Every week we feature interviews with some of the world’s very best photographers, where they share an amazing amount of tips, advice, life lessons and more – all in a very relaxed and laid-back manner. The stories they tell are often incredibly funny, too – it’s not a stuffy podcast at all; as one of our recent reviews said “it’s one of my favourite podcasts out there for photography specifically but also for entertainment”.

So whether you’re looking for a photography business podcast, insights into the backstories of brilliant wedding and family photographers, tips on editing, composition, marketing, stories of their past mistakes, favourite Netflix binges, what they recommend for people just starting out in the industry, to those who have been shooting for years, and much, much more, you’re in the right place.
