The definitive analogue photography podcast list AKA soothe the soul and inspire the heart
It feels like there’s been an explosion of new films and analogue photography podcasts hit the air this year. It’s hard to keep up sometimes, so a few weeks ago I decided to collect all of the active podcasts together in a podcast list and share them here. The idea being – like my Film Lab Map and Film Stock series’ – to keep it up to date as things change.
2018 alone has seen seven new film/analogue photography podcasts start, a sure sign of how healthy, vibrant and diverse the analogue photography community and industry are as a whole today. Far from being a crowded market, each of the podcasts shown here brings its own personality and twists to the content. I’d highly recommend giving them all a spin if you can.
Below you’ll find 22 alphabetically ordered podcasts split into two groups: Analogue photography podcasts and Ambiguously analogue photography podcasts (thanks to Classic Lenses James Giordano for his blessing on that second one!) Both groups are well worth your time exploring, and range in subject matter from film and gear talk to darkroom technique, photographer interviews/chat and the creative process.
With their first episode having aired in 2009, the oldest film photography podcast here is well, the Film Photography Podcast from our friends over at the FPP (well done, folks!). The newest is Neil Piper’s Soot and Whitewash, which started in July 2018.
For the sake of relevance, I have not included any podcasts that have not aired new episodes within the last six months. As ever, if I’ve missed anyone off, drop me a line with their details in the comments and I’ll set about updating this article.
Analogue photography podcasts
The title is a bit of a misnomer, as a few of the podcasts you’ll see below also focus on digital photography. That said, all of these people currently do, or have spoken about analogue photography, processes and gear.
Ambiguously analogue photography podcasts
Not specifically analogue photography related or focused more heavily on the digital process, the folks listed here are still amongst the best photography podcasts out there to listen to and do occasionally cover analogue photography, processes and gear.
