The Podcast

Released regularly, the Richard Flint Photography podcast features photography news, photography projects, website and podcast links, multimedia presentations, videos, photography articles, details about upcoming exhibitions, photographic awards and much more. Podcast specials are also usually occasionally recorded each year.

This joint Richard Flint Photography/Darker skies audio podcast covers a broad range of photography related topics and issues that have taken place over the previous weeks.

Although the podcasts does look at certain technical issues from time to time, its main focus is on the process of image making, the photography itself and the photographers who make those fantastic images. We concentrate on the image and not the camera.

The podcasts mention photography websites, multimedia and video that I’ve enjoyed and admired online. Rather than read out the link addresses, many of which are incredibly complex and long, I will place the links on this podcast page so that the digital content mentioned can be easily found and viewed.
