Ben Smith’s podcast is one of the best on photography. I especially like that he focuses on the photographer rather than foolishly trying to make it a conversation between two equals. Two pet peeves: first, he is at times too intimidated by the photographers to push back or probe further when...Read full review »

That the millionth episode didn’t have any yucky girls on it!

This is my fortnightly inspiration. Honest conversations with amazing photographers. Ben Smith delivers a great blend of sympathetic but direct — and sometimes challenging — questions.

I find this one of the best and perhaps the only honest photobolog, that occasionally asks difficult questions IMHO.

I never miss an episode of Bens podcast. It is always fascinating to gain insight into the lives and practice of other photographers- not so much the technique but what actually motivates and shapes there work. Really grateful for the time and effort that goes into these interviews
Dan wicks via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/25/23
Really good coverage of Photo London 23; fair and balanced, asking all the right questions.

Listening to Ben Smith’s Small Voice podcast is probably the best one thing a photographer can do to open the mind, learn, get inspired, and improve one’s process. I discovered the work of photographers I never knew and found the authentic and witty conversations invaluable for advancing my...Read full review »

Ben's Small Voice podcast is always high on my list of photography podcasts to listen to. It is the pinnacle of photographer interviews. I like how the interview often goes of on an unexpected tangent. Keep up the hard work!Read full review »

I found this because of Bens interview on The Candid Frame and these two are now definitely my favourite photography podcasts. Ben is a great interviewer and I am looking forward to going through the “back catalogue”!

Unlike most podcasters, Ben rarely inserts himself into the conversation. He keeps his focus on his guest, asking well-researched questions and encouraging his guests to talk at length about their lives, experiences, and photo practices. He is also one of the few podcasters who regularly...Read full review »

Blah blah blah, rich people taking pictures yah! It’s art yah! More real people taking shots please, instead of posh home county lads taking shots looking for projects because they can afford it. Good podcast but forget the rich boys x yah.
Fraser TB via Apple Podcasts · Denmark · 03/05/21
I have been loving your podcast for a few years. It keeps my mind active and in the loop of photography. Thank you for making it!

For years we’ve been swimming in a sea of podcasts and youtube channels focused on all the things professionals are least concerned with, gear and how you made an image rather than what the image says the the viewer. As an experienced professional photographer Ben Smith creates a dialog with his...Read full review »

B. Karloff via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/24/21
I don’t think MCB is racist. Michael Christopher Brown is 100% an opportunist. His “work” on skid row is simply an effort to monetize and take advantage of an issue he doesn’t understand and doesn’t care about. When his work slowed down he wanted to use the homeless to jumpstart his career.
cashew1130 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/10/20
This is my new favourite podcast. It’s really rather good.
Kat on the boat via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/25/20
This podcast seriously makes my 3 hours a day in a car pass by. I love the in depth detail of photographers journeys and what makes them tick. A honest and Relaxed interviewing style that seems to bring the best out of the subjects.

The creative world seems so hard to get in as a young photographer/artist but this intimate and friendly conversations on photography with Ben showed me there are much more ways than I thought. The insights are fantastic and I love how close and light everything feels! Thank you!!

An excellent podcast, a great resource. Always well prepared and versed in the photographers, allowing the discussions to go deeper than a shorter written piece might. There’s an element of ‘by photographers for photographers’ to this, although it is by no means elitist in tone or exclusionary....Read full review »
