He's since fallen in love with this art and traversed the globe, pursuing rare and illusive moments of atmosphere and light. Since late 2014, he has been working full time as a landscape photographer, hosting his own photography workshops and guiding tours the world over, as well as shooting for various brands and clients.

Andrew Studer - Working with Corporate Clients

Welcome to Episode 095 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast with Andrew Studer!

Andrew Studer is a professional outdoor commercial photographer videographer and timelapse cinematographer based in Portland, Oregon. With a huge passion for the outdoors, Andrew is constantly seeking out adventure and unique and engaging ways to capture what he sees. In an interview with Aperture Academy, Andrew describes where his passion for outdoor photography arose.

"I think my passion for photography began as a natural continuation for my love of art and the outdoors. Growing up in Oregon, I was quite lucky to have so many beautifully diverse places so close to me. As a child, I'd take trips with my family to see these places and I think experiencing these places in person struck a desire to capture and share the beauty of the outdoors."

In addition to the inspiration Andrew felt from the beauty of Oregon, Andrew was also artistically engaged at a young age. As a child, Andrew was a passionate sketch artist drawing detailed animal portraits as well as vivid landscapes. As his love for art progressed, Andrew became involved with video production in 2012 creating short films. Over the years, Andrew continued video production into college while also breaking into photography. By the end of his sophomore year, Andrew felt it was time to leave school to dedicate more time to photography and focus on his craft. Andrew began his freelance career in the summer of 2015 creating content for a variety of clients in the outdoors.  He now spends over a third of the year traveling across the world on commissioned shoots and on adventures capturing content for his personal photo collections. His work has been featured in publications such as National Geographic, The Huffington Post, The Weather Channel, CBS News, The Daily Mail, Fstoppers and Bored Panda. 

We covered some fun topics this week, including:

1. How Andrew got his early start as a professional in the industry.

2. His approach to planning and executing his epic and viral 2017 eclipse photo.

3. Working with corporate clients.

4. The state of authenticity and the commercialization of nature photography by influencers on Instagram.
