Always a great presentation, offering views and perspectives that inspire new and different avenues for my own photography. I am fortunate that listening to various podcasts while at work is an option, and there are many photography-related efforts. As I cull the list to a managable selection, quite a few have been deleted- this one stays. The problem is the need to purchase a couple book after listening to your interviews recently, so no down side at all, really. It is an outstanding subscribtion.

The People Behind the Lens

Rating: ★★★★★

A great podcast that doesn’t get stymied in the muck of f-stops and ISO, but instead talks to photographers from a wide variety of backgrounds about their work, their lives and what photography means to them. I’ve learned so much from this podcast its hard to overstate it.Ibarionex is a masterful interviewer who asks questions that really get to the heart about what it means to be an artist in this medium today.

A must listen.

By far one of, if not the best, photography podcasts. Ibarionex interview style is brilliant, he does not focus on what gear is used, although that does come up at times, but who the photographer is and how they work. I have not listened to all of the Candid Frames extensive library but each one I have so far has tought me something new, and inspired me to go and create.

The Candid Frame is essential. It inspires, entertains and informs in a way no other podcast is quite able to do. Most importantly, it keeps my camera in my bag and mind constantly searching for new ways to push the boundaries of my craft. Thank you!

Ibarionex gives you a seat at the table as he interviews a who’s who of photographers spanning subjects and sensibilities. Both insightful and empathetic, he explores the most fascinating details of the masters and encourages his listeners to apply lessons learned to their own creative journey.Not to be missed.

A must listen for any photographer

For the amateur, hobbyist, and professional photographer alike, this podcast is informative and inspiring. Since I began listening to The Candid Frame earlier this year, I have learned an immense amount on the creative, technical, and business sides of photography. Besides being entertaining, I truly believe this podcast has helped me become a better photographer. Because of information I have gathered from the guests and host, as well as feeling motivated after each episode I listen to, my work has improved. Ibarionex is a compelling host with a great voice for radio. He asks guests informative, thought-provoking questions. In turn, the guests give provocative answers. This is the type of podcast I keep a note on my phone that stores helpful quotes and tips from the various guests. It is not just one of my favorite photography podcasts, it’s one of my favorite shows of all time. If you have any passion for photography, I wholeheartedly recommend this podcast.

Simply excellent

Ibarionex is a sincere, unpretentious, curious and engaged listener- which makes his questions natural and the interviews informative and entertaining. Though I shoot primarily in the documentary genre, I'm interested in what photogrpahers from all genres have to say about process, motivation, doubt, failures, revelations and peak moments. I often listen while driving, cooking or getting dressed for the day, and I always learn something-- which may be about humanity or emotional states- or something more specific to photography like a unique way to edit - but the podcast is always thought-provoking. Just try the most recent interview with Alastair McLachlan- an incredibly humble, clear thinker and articulate speaker - and experience for yourself Ibarionex's enthusiam and ability to take the conversation where it needs to go. (I'm also a monthly donor through Patreon.)

A never ending source of knowledge and inspiration

This is by far one of the best podcast available right now, deep, insightful, highly inspirational and highly educational, the amount of knowledge you can acquire from it it’s simply mind blowing and invaluable, focused much more on understanding what drives some of the most talented photographers ever out there rather than geeking out about gear or fads this podcast will feed your soul as a person and the artist in you.

Best interview podcast out there.

Ibarionex is a skilled interviewer. He has interviewed many of the great names in photography. He draws out the individual nuances of each of his guests. It not the same questions given to each guests. You can tell he thoroughly researchs each guest he has on. If you're into gear, this isn't the podcast for you but if you want to sit down with the greats of photography and get to know them you'll love this podcast!

I´ve been listening to the candid frame for a while now and I´m finaly taking the time to write this review. As a photographer, working commercialy but exploring documentative narratives and with a background in street work, I simply adore to sit down at my desk while editing and listen to Ibarionex interview his fantastic guests. This is the podcast for you if you enjoy photography of anykind but especially if you are OBSESSED with photography and storytelling and have decided to invest yourself in it fully. I get true pleasure in discovering new, exiting photographers and their work and it has helped me become more determined in pursuing my goal to develop long term, meaningful projects. I find that most of the questions and doubts that run through my mind are being explored here and talked about in such a genuine way that it helps feeling better and more motivated about my own work after most episodes. There is a lot of good I could say but I think you just have to go ahead and start listening! I catch up on the newest podcasts regularly but also enjoy going back to the early ones. I basically can´t get bored anymore! Thank you Ibarionex for all of your efforts to do this to share with us and for your true love of the medium and of it´s people!

After subscribing to the Candid Frame Podcast and listening all episodes on the itunes feed I was sad that I had to wait for the new episodes to keep listening to the podcast, I wanted more. By checking your website I found out about the app for iphone. I had a firm idea of writing this review after listening all the episodes of the podcast. You cracked me at the episode #138 and now I am writing this review while I’m listening again to that episode. The emotion brought to this episode emphasizes to me that is because of emotion that I take photos. It is because of the joy that I feel that I press the button saying yes to the image I see. What to say about to the journey that includes self-discovery with photography inspired by this podcast? It is a joy to listen to photographers and what they experienced when they took great photos. The last question that you make is the start of discovering images that I didn’t know about. That’s is what this podcast is about a body of knowledge from the feeling inside to the search of the light. May the light of Christ be with you in your journey, that’s the best I can wish to you.Thanks and Regards,Ricardo da Silva

Iabrionex is good at establishing a relaxed intimate atmosphere for his subject to tell their story. This works especially well with episode 359. Kevin Weinstien has a great story and it was a wonderful experience hearing him talk about the subjects of his photography. Thanks for the work you do. Both of you.

Inspiring Photography Podcast

Ibarionex Perello interviews photographers from all walks of life, and the stories they tell are truly inspiring. He has a great interviewing style where he asks great questions and then listens. We get to hear in-depth answers from the photographers on a whole range of topics. On recent podcasts, we've heard Stacey Pearsall, a military photographer who is working on a project photographing veterans, and we've heard from Klara Plicanic, an upbeat and fun wedding photographer. These two interviews show the range of the podcast, from serious to fun subjects and everything in between.

The Candid Frame is the best photography podcast out there, and, frankly, it's not close. The guests are world-class talents from all corners of the world of photography. And Ibarionex's interviews are graceful and natural, always bringing the best out his subjects. No gear reviews. No tips or tutorials. Just passionate, creative photographers saying really interesting, educational and inspiring things.

by romarosie on Jan 17, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

Ibarionex Perello has taken the photography podcast to another level with his excellent interviewing style and questions. This is not a typical conversation where photographers talk about their favorite images and how they made them. Ibarionex dives into the history of a photographer's work, how they approach their career path, what inspires them to be more creative, and so much more. His questions are insightful and the guests are at the top of their game. I am likely to be consdiered incredibly biased because I was featured on this podcast but I was a listener long before being asked on the show. I hope you'll subscribe to this very inspirational series!

The answer : 'The Candid Frame". What was the question? Pick any episode and give it a listen, the question will be asked. Any familiar listener is knowingly smiling right now. If you have any intrest in photography as an art and by-the-way, you don't even have to be a photographer, I encourage you to listen to one or two of these interveiws. Find a familiar name or an interesting subject in the show notes and soon you will be knowingly smiling too.

What a great podcast. In a disposable world where it seems everyone and their mother has a podcast, Ibarionex has put together a simple, straightforward program. It is great to go through the archives, not only to hear from some really great photographers, but to hear Ibarionex develop as an interviewer. The interview with Estevan Oriol is not to be missed. Great job, please keep up the studied, insightful work...

One of the Very Best Photo Podcasts

by Bluegrass Reader on Jun 28, 2016
Rating: ★★★★★

Ibarionex puts out an exceptional podcast, with an emphasis on the artistic side of photography. His approach is a highly welcome change from the gear-gear-gear theme of many of the popular podcasts, which either review last week's camera gear, or the latest updates in technology. Plus, he has one of the great expressive voices, to boot. Two thumbs up.

Ibarionex has a talented way of producing excellent questions and (here’s the important part) stepping out of the way to allow his interview subject to tell a story. Another fine ingredient to this successful podcast is his ability to bring in such talented and legendary people in the photography community. With such a catalog of interviews produced with extreme quality, The Candid Frame is an important history of the people behind the photographs. Well done.

Covering the Most Important Aspects of Photography and Photographers

If I could only listen to one photography podcast each week, this would be the one. Ibarionex is a fantastic and insightful interviewer and host, and his guests are always interesting. From the experiences and information shared by Ibarionex and his guests you'll learn the important things about photography - far more than you could get from gear-centric shows (which I also love, btw). This show focuses more on the inspiration, motivation and personal stories that shed so much more light on being a creative photographer than you'll get from any other show out there. That's what makes The Candid Frame such an important resource. Thank you very much, Ibarionex!

What a great compliment the two are to one another in terms of content. Ibarionex is a really terrific interviewer and has gotten access to some stellar talent in the photography world to create compelling, educational, and highly inspirational pieces that are perfect for a drive to work, a long plane ride, or just to sit and listen. Please keep up the good work Ibarionex!!

Found my way to the Candid Frame through another Twip show and this is honestly by far the most inspiring photography podcast shows I’ve ever had the honor to listen to and enjoy. There are a lot of podcast out there about gears and skills, this one is all about passion and pursuing dreams, I love that each episode really going into the stories of the very diverse paths of the brilliant photography guests and how they converge to pursuing their dream of doing photography. Ibarionex is a fantastic host (and an amazing street photographer) for the show and his pure passion for photography always comes through thoroughly in each show. The interview are casual but in depth, because he really gently nudge the guests with his probing questions but also let them express their passion for photography in many directions. In many ways, this will serve as an audio history of photographers in the decades to come.

I’m not a big podcast listener, but as a photographer, I couldn’t help but gravitate towards this one. If this were just about gear and technique, I would’ve lost interest long ago; but Ibarionex really does his homework and asks all the right questions, often delving deeply into the history of the art form and each photographer’s personal philosophy and approach. If you’re a photographer and you’re not hip to this podcast, well, get on it! You’re really missing out on something special.
