Here's the latest review…
★★★★★ Great Podcast for ALL photographers!
Via Apple Podcasts by Charleston, South Carolina newborn photographer, Brooke Embry, in the USA on December 7, 2022.
I am a maternity & newborn photographer, and I listen to podcasts almost every single day while I edit.
This podcast is by far the best one I have come across. I first started with the $1 trial about 6-8 months ago and quickly purchased the membership.
The knowledge that I’ve taken in from the many, many types of photographer interviews is priceless. From business strategies to social media strategies and everything in between, this podcast has it all, no matter what genre you photograph!
★★★★★ Obsessed with PhotoBizX!
Via Google reviews by New York boudoir photographer, Irina Mednik, in the USA on December 4, 2022.
To say I'm obsessed with the Photo Biz Xposed podcast would be an understatement. I found it about a year ago, and I've been tuning in religiously every Monday to hear the newest episode.
Every guest that Andrew brings on is so knowledgeable and always has nuggets of wisdom that I am happy to take away. There's no holding back, and Andrew knows all the questions to ask.
Anyone even remotely interested in photography will absolutely fall in love with the podcast and feel like they are a personal friend of Andrew!
