Learn how to run your professional photography business directly from the pros!

Enhance your digital photography education and learn photography tips as we chat about lighting, lenses, Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop, and the most common mistakes newbie photographers make. In addition, we cover wedding photography, portrait photography, concert photography, and more. Whether you are a Canon user or Nikon user (or anything in-between!), a beginner looking for a real world introduction to photography, or an experienced photographer looking to sharpen your skills, you have come to the right photography podcast!

Informative interviews on the business of photography
Chamira does a great job pulling out what these professional photographers do to build and grow their businesses---I enjoyed hearing what's worked for people…and what hasn't (it's good to learn from other people's mistakes). Episodes 15 & 16 are my favorites so far… check them out!
This is refreshing. Interviewer asks great questions. Very informative interviews. Nice to have a younger female photographer hosting a well put together podcast.
Excellent, Informative, Educational
This photography business podcast is an excellent, well produced, and highly informative resource for people who are in the photographic industry or those who wish to break into the industry.
