PhotoCountry is a podcast that brings you showcases of photographers and inspiration for other photographers. Raj began the show as a pitch for a local radio show, choosing the name for his interest in photography and his love of country music. When COVID put an end to the radio show, his producer suggested that Raj keep doing what he was doing in podcasting form.
Raj discusses the different kinds of photographers who guest on his show, including a cliff-diving photographer, a street photographer using an old-school camera, and a photographer who uses a unique method to team up with nature to co-create art. He says finding photographers he wants to talk to isn’t difficult, but getting them to come on the show can take convincing.
Raj’s best advice for both aspiring podcasters and aspiring photographers is to just get started with what you have. Waiting for the next big piece of gear or equipment to come out won’t make you better at it, but doing the thing will.
