Happy New Year and welcome to Podcast #42! This is our second annual "Year in Review" podcast and we discuss some of the photo related events that happened during the last year. We also review the guests that we have interviewed over the past 12 months and give a little hint of what is to come in 2012. We plan to offer more DIY projects, more training (including another free eBook which will be released in mid-January) as well as workshops and more interviews!

In the news, we have more updates about the troubles at Olympus Camera and show one of the year's best nature photos selected by National Geographic Magazine. We want to thank you all for tuning in to our podcast and for checking out our Facebook page. Please take a few minutes to rate us on your favorite podcast feed (especially on iTunes!) as that will help more photographers find us.

Keep listening and we're looking forward to a photogenic 2012!
