F-Stop Beyond Podcasts

F-Stop Beyond (the original audio podcast): ranked as one of the top 10 artists podcast in 2008 on Podbean.com, this is the show that started it all. There are already so many podcasts about photography that cover f-stops and Photoshop, business and branding, but host Ron Dawson couldn’t find any that really got into the meat of WHO the photographer IS, rather than HOW he or she shoots. A big fan of NPR’s “Fresh Air,” Ron decided to create the podcast equivalent for photographers. So in September 2007, with his video camcorder to record at the annual Pictage PartnerCon in Los Angeles, Ron started interviewing some of the nation’s top wedding and portrait photographers. The show has now grown to over 100 interviews with guests from just about every aspect of photography: weddings, portraits, fashion, commercial, and photojournalism. Our guest list has included high profile names like Chase Jarvis, Vincent Laforet, and Joey L, as well as artists you may not necessarily heard of, like Flickr phenom Deobrah D. Lattimore, and a blind photographer from the Netherlands, Alex de Jong. If they use a camera to express their art, and they have an interesting story to tell, we want them on the show.

F-Stop Beyond: In Living Color (aka F-Stop Beyond TV): the video flavor of the audio show, we like to think of it as a cross between Oprah, Barbara Walters, Charlie Rose, with a dash of AMC’s The Actor’s Studio.

    Hi there!

    I would like to listen to Episode 80 (Jack Hollingsworth) but unfortunately the link does not work (and not in the itunes store either).

    Could you have a look on that or just send the episode as mp3 via mail?

    Would be great and thx in advance!

    Best regards from the polar circle

      FStop Beyond is no longer online. I may bring back the episodes in another form later. Sorry.

    Dear Ron!

    Really a pity since they have been really great resources.

    Wishing you lots of energy for your new projects!

    Best regards
