Jack Brauer - Mountain Landscape Photography

Episode 035 of F-Stop Collaborate and Listen with Colorado-based landscape photographer, and one of my long-time idols, Jack Brauer. It was such a treat to get Jack onto the podcast as I have been his biggest fan since I started as a landscape photographer. Jack and I often shoot very similar subjects (rare vantages of Colorado's most awesome mountains) and so he has been a huge inspiration to me. Pretty much every shot Jack has leaves me envious, inspired, and hungry to get out and better myself. 

Jack and I covered some great topics this week, including:

  • How Jack got into Landscape Photography
  • Mountain Photography
  • How Jack got into the web design business and his website building services (if you do use his services, tell him you heard about it on the podcast)
  • The critical relationship between conservation and landscape photography, including the recent news about Bear's Ears and Grand Staircase Escalante

Alexandre Deschaumes - Publishing a Book as a Landscape Photographer

Episode 034 of F-Stop Collaborate and Listen with France-based landscape photographer, Alexandre Deschaumes. Alexandre was highly recommended to me by many former guests so I knew I just had to get him onto the podcast for a conversation. It took some effort, but Alexandre finally agreed to come on, and man it was fun! We had some interesting language challenges, but I think Alexandre handled the conversation wonderfully. 

We covered some really great topics this week, including Alexandre's journey into landscape photography, the documentary about his work, his book, his style of photography, and the challenges of conservation and landscape photography in Europe.

Episode 031 with Utah-based landscape photographer, David Swindler. I have been following David's work on Flickr for many years and have found his work to be quite inspiring.
