Adam Woodworth - Becoming a full-time Professional Landscape Photographer

Episode 045 of F-Stop Collaborate and Listen with Maine-based landscape photographer Adam Woodworth! I have been a fan of Adam's work for several years and it was so cool to finally get to talk to him over the podcast medium! Adam is a full-time photographer and works a lot with Nikon. His work is very, very good and deserves some attention. It was fun speaking with Adam - it was a very laid back conversation.

We covered some great topics this week, including:

  • Adam's journey into landscape photography.
  • Adam's decision to become a full-time professional photographer.
  • His cross-country road trip from Maine to Alaska (here's a link to Andrew Skurka's route we talked about).
  • Night Photography.
  • Adam's video tutorials.

Special announcements: This week we are partnering with F-Stop Gear - we are giving away a Medium Shallow ICU to a lucky podcast listener. If you're not familiar with their products, their backpacks are fantastic (I use an older F-Stop Loka) and their ICUs are what you use to put all of your camera gear into the backpack. What's cool about the Medium Shallow ICU is that it will work in all kinds of other backpacks as well and works well with both Mirrorless gear and DSLR gear. In order to enter to win, all you need to do is head on over to the Podcast's Facebook Group and comment on the thread I created there - tell us what you like about the podcast and what topics and guests you'd like to hear in the future. I will choose a winner based on how interesting the comment is (that's my super scientific way to pick)!

Mark Handy - Ethics and Digital Manipulation in Landscape Photography

Episode 044 of F-Stop Collaborate and Listen with California-based landscape photographer Mark Handy! I have been a huge fan of Mark's work ever since I learned about him through the podcast. Mark is a wildly successful photographer, having owned his own gallery in La Jolla, CA.

Bryan Swan - Waterfall Landscape Photography

Episode 043 of F-Stop Collaborate and Listen with Seattle-based landscape photographer Bryan Swan! I have been following Bryan's work for several years, ever since I moved to (and left) Portland, Oregon. Bryan is the creator of the incredibly comprehensive waterfall databases, Water Falls Northwest, and the World Waterfall database. He's also an incredibly good landscape photographer! Bryan and I got a chance to meet-up this past fall in Ridgway, Colorado and camped together for a couple of nights along with Trevor Anderson, another great landscape photographer out of Seattle. When I posed the idea of having Bryan on the podcast, he was totally excited, so we finally made it happen a few months later. 

We covered some great topics this week, including:

  • Bryan's journey into landscape photography
  • Bryan's decision to not become a full-time professional photographer
  • The Northwest Waterfall survey and the delicate relationship between the internet and photography locations
  • Tips for photographing waterfalls
  • Stamp collecting vs. exploration & wilderness exploration
  • Scouting tools in the age of the internet, including Gaia GPS and Google Earth

Darwin Wiggett & Samantha Chrysanthou - The League of Landscape Photographers

Episode 042 of F-Stop Collaborate and Listen with Alberta Canada-based landscape photographers Darwin Wiggett and Samantha Chrysanthou! I have been really getting into the message that both Darwin and Samantha have been spreading through their photography and efforts with The League magazine relating to ethics in the field. The topic has come up frequently on the podcast and I really wanted to get them on the show to dive deeper into the topic and feel out their perspective.

Samantha and Darwin are the founders and creators of oopoomoo have collectively been involved in photography education for over thirty years. In 2012 the two decided to join forces and meet a glaring need in the photo industry – to create a photography site that teaches original creative expression within a larger framework of what it means to be creative in today’s world. They called this website oopoomoo. According to Sam and Darwin, “we live in a time of unbridled consumption with far-reaching impacts on the planet, our fellow species and our children’s lives. Living the oopoomoo life means pursuing our unique, creative gifts with an awareness of the fact that we all live within a precious and fragile larger community”. As an offshoot of the oopoomoo philosophy Sam and Darwin have created a print outlet for artistic and ethically captured landscape photography called League Magazine which promotes excellence in photography and a love of nature as an ethical value. On both oopoomoo and in League, Sam and Darwin feature the stories and images of photographers who undergo the daily heroics necessary to live their best creative and ethical life. Sam and Darwin have received rave reviews for their fun and informative photo seminars, eBooks and eCourses on living the creative life in photography.

We covered some great topics this week, including:

  • Samantha and Darwin's journey into landscape photography and oopoomoo
  • Ethics in nature photography
  • The League Magazine - its purpose and inspiration
  • The tension between various ethical principles
  • Creating images that start conversations
