2021 - My Most Challenging Year of Photography - TDS Photo Podcast
In large part, 2021 seemed like a year of talking about photography rather than actually taking pictures. But just like with any important relationship, anything that you can do to keep the embers glowing is worthwhile. Today I’ll take a look back at the past 11 months and look forward to what could be different in 2022. I hope you enjoy the show.

Holiday Gifts Under $40 for Photographers - TDS Photography Podcast
Photographers aren’t the easiest folks to buy for. They’re picky about their gear, they already have more stuff than anyone realizes, and what they don’t have usually costs a lot of money. But there are always a few hidden treasures that are bound to delight, and those goodies are the focus of this week’s TDS Photography Podcast. I hope you enjoy the show.

So, How Did it Go? - TDS Photography Podcast
When you’ve been away from them for a while, it’s easy to forget the joy of an in-person workshop.

This week we’re going to look at the adjustments required, and the resulting rewards, of a physical workshop. And look ahead to 2022. I hope you enjoy the show.

If There Ever Was a Time to Stand Pat - TDS Photography Podcast
I have become very familiar with the term, Request Stock Alert. As I compare recent camera announcements with availability, I see there is a fairly wide gap. You can receive shipment on some items, but they may not be the exact thing that you�re hoping for. And this got me thinking, maybe this is a good time to simply appreciate the equipment that I have, and leave it at that. I explore this topic on today�s TDS Photography Podcast (and lots more!). I hope you enjoy the show.

Why I'm Still Podcasting - Digital Photography Podcast
The other day, during a conversation, someone asked me, "Why, after all this time, are you still podcasting? Don't you get tired of the grind?"

But after some reflection I was able to put my fingers on a few key reasons, and I'm going to share those with you in today's TDS Photography Podcast. I hope you enjoy the show.
