Iâve spent the last couple weeks binging photography podcasts and this is one of if not the best ones. Deeply satisfying content, interesting guests, thoughtful interview questions, and quality sound production :D
Photography, to me, is more about the vision than he gear. This Podcast is dedicated to the vision of real photographers, and I love to have the oportunity of listening to them.
A continuous source of knowledge and inspiration in compelling conversations with a wide variety of photographers. For me photography is a way of exploring, connecting and sharing, and Ibarionex does exactly the same thing with his podcast. Exploring different aspects of photography, connecting with his guests and listeners, and sharing the journey. So much to discover!
This is the most thoughtful podcast on photography I have found. The interviews with artists deep dive into how the photographer thinks, what motivates their art, and their philosophy. The questions are excellent.
A fellow photographer introduced me to this podcast several months ago and I instantly became a faithful listener. Not only is each episode insightful, but the interviews are well balanced dialogues between Ibarionex and his guest.
Engaging conversations with photographers about their work and why they do what they do. No camera gear reviews or meaningless babbling. I just found this podcast and am listening every commute to yearsâ worth of episodes. Quite interesting and entertaining.
As a fellow photographer and podcaster, I cannot recommend The Candid Frame enough. Such an exhaustive archive of inspirational conversation. Massive thanks to Ibarionex for the heart and soul poured into this program over the years. To many more years!- Wes Bowker(First Person Shooter Podcast)
I found "The Candid Frame" by chance about a year ago as I began to seriously try to improve my ability to express myself through the medium of photography. Ibarionex is as much a master of the interview as his guests are master's of the photographic medium. When the two masters meet, the listener is granted access to, what I would argue is, the soul of photography. I cried as I listened to John Free and return to that interview everytime I feel my work is losing it's meaning. I return to the many of Joel Meyerowitz's interviews to be reminded of how to rekindle passion in my life. Ibarionex deserves a seat next to Terry Gross and Charlie Rose. Ibarionex's legacy will be that he has preserved, just like a photograph, a moment of deeper understanding in which the contemporary master's of photography opened their souls so that we can become better photographers and human beings.Ian Huntwww.ianhunt.space
I've listened to The Candid Frame for more than a decade and find it to be as informative and inspirational today as it was when I first started listening all those years ago. Ibarionex's style, insight and low key approach is refreshing and keeps his guests at ease. I highly recommend The Candid Frame podcast to anyone interested in photography.
I just learned about Ibarionex and The Candid Frame. No matter what you level of photography you will enjoy these in depth interviews. Ibarionex is a skilled and empathetic interviewer.
Ibarionex, host of the Candid Frame: a photography podcast, highlights all aspects of photography and more in this canât miss podcast! The host and expert guests offer insightful advice and information that is helpful to anyone that listens!
The Candid Frame is almsot like a contemporary history of photography, from established photographers and elite photographers of our time like Joel Meyerowitz and Donna Ferrato to young photographers like Castro Frank among others. I love that the discussion is about photographically centered lives and explores the liffe paths of photographers. There is so much diversity in cultures, genres, paths its such a wonderful education. With over 400 episodes, you will drive yourself crazy trying to decide where to start! One of the best podcast in any genre and definelty the best in photography. I cant recommend it enough.
Your questions were fantastic, keep up the great work!
I discovered this podcast about a year ago and have now listened to all the past issues. Ibarionex is a thoughtful interviewer of photographers. Unlike most media interviewers today, he has the uncanny ability to draw out the person he is interviewing without himself interrupting or dominating the conversation. His interviews are about the interviewee and not some ego trip about the interviewer. I look forward to each new podcast and wish Ibarionex continued success.Update: after all these years, listening to nearly all of the 400+ podcasts. Ibarionex continues to get better and better and better as an interviewer. He can ask leading questions, he can ask probing questions, but he never gets in the way of connecting us to the interviewee. No one does it better. If you listen to just one photography podcast, make it The Candid Fram.
Insightful interviews with photographers about their art and ideas are going to be a big help in upping my photo game!
Ibarionex's thoughtful and perceptive questions are what takes these interviews to another level. Don't expect discussions about cameras or gear. These are in-depth discussions about what photographersâknown and unknownâvalue most about their work and the photographic process in general. This is a thinking man/woman's photography podcast. Drink it up.
Ibarionex not only has wonderful, insightful guests, but his interview style concentrates on the creativity and emotion which motivate the photographer. This is not an F-Stop and shutter speed discussion. Rather, it addresses how we create, why we create, and how to move forward. Plus, Ibarionex is very responsive, replying to emails about the podcast.
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.
A great podcast that doesnât 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. Iâve 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.
If you are a living a photographic life, The Candid Frame is a must listen! Ibarionex always has great guests whether they are some one Iâve never heard of or a photographic hero of mine. The podcast is insightful, informative and inspiring. Thank you for what you do Ibarionex!
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.
This is by far the best photography podcast out there. This is what you should listen to if you want to improve as a photographer.
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 whoâs 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.
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, itâs one of my favorite shows of all time. If you have any passion for photography, I wholeheartedly recommend this podcast.
If youâre interested in what makes photographers click, how they go about creating their work, how they run their business, then this is the podcast for you.
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.)
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 itâs 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. Victor Trasvina
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!
If you want to step up your game in the photography, then you must listen to this podcast. Hearing how established photographers got started and about their sometimes struggles is both informative and entertaining.I'm glad I found this podcast. I hope to one day be as awesome as many of Ibarionex's guests.Thanks.
IÂ´ve been listening to the candid frame for a while now and IÂ´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 canÂ´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 itÂ´s people!
Great podcast for all with a serious interest in photography and photographers.
This is a podcast that is timeless. I have been a listener for several years and I never grow tired of listening to the insightful and fresh interviews that Ibarionex has cultivated over the years and today. Do yourself a favor and listen in. You will be educated, entertained, delighted and happy that you did.If you're like me you will have to listen them all.
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 Iâm 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 didnât know about. Thatâs 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, thatâs the best I can wish to you.Thanks and Regards,Ricardo da Silva
I love this show and look forward to each episode!
I have always loved career development stories and photography stories. This truly outstanding podcast satisfies my hunger for both. Keep up the great work!
An excellent and serious approach to photography. Great learning material.
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.
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.
Quite simply great conversations with great photographers. Not to be missed!
I spend a lot of time in my vehicle for my work and I listen to a lot of photo podcasts. This is one of my favorites, it's way more than a photo podcast. The human interest element runs high. It's one podcast my wife enjoys and she's not a photographer.
The title says it all.
Easily one of the best photography podcasts out there.Informative, enthusiastic conversations between a superb interviewer and talented shooters.CAUTION: May be habit forming!
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!
I love this podcast! I'm so glad I stumbled on it. Thank you.
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...
I'm constantly looking for resources to improve my photography, amazing people in the industry, and diverse thinking on the subject of photography and the role it plays. All of that is here. I'm so lucky to have stumbled on this podcast and can't wait to recommend to others.
No matter what genre of photography you're into, you'll find great interviews with the best photographers on The Candid Frame. Got a long drive coming up? Load up a few TCF podcasts and learn a thing or two while the miles fly by. Ibarionex is a great interviewer, and enables his subject's personalities to come through.
