David joined us again on the podcast to talk about his experience as a photographer on an artist-in-residency program at Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve in Idaho. David and I had a great time discussion a variety of topics, including: 

  • The intensity of an artist in residency program

Patrons of the podcast are encouraged to participate in our themed photo contests by submitting them to the "community board" on our Patreon Page which can be found at patreon.com/fstopandlisten/community - The current theme of "Intimate Landscapes" ends today and I had a really fun time selecting a winner this time. We had some great submissions from Jarrod Hills, Steve Bennett, Ken Kelchtermans, Jackson Frishman, and Michael Ryno. Everyone really did a great job of representing the current theme. In the end, I decided to pick Ken Kelchtermans photo, which he described as follows: "The sand on our beaches are not the same anymore since they throw dredged sand on the beaches. It's become very soft en very washable. 1 big storm and we have 1 meter sand cliffs along our beaches. Of course the dredging company loves it when that happens. It is like mopping with an open faucet in my opinion. Here on the coast of Belgium they started building on the dunes, which should be our protection in the possibly near future. Good that there are some parts protected but, it's already to late. Vlaanderen (Part of Belgium) means flooded land in the old germanic. Oostende from the 13 century, is way back in sea now."

Nice work Ken! I'll get you a prize soon!

Our next theme, which will end July 26th, is "mountains and deserts" in honor of a tattoo I'm getting this month. Let's see those awesome shots over on our community board!

He moved to Colorado last year after spending many years as a successful gallery operator and photographer in Hawaii with his friend and business partner CJ Kale.

Welcome to Episode 111 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast. This week's guest is Norwegian Landscape Photographer, Ole Henrik Skjelstad

Ole is a math teacher and an incredible landscape photographer most famously known for his photography of a red cabin near his home in Norway. Ole received his first camera as a birthday present in January 2013. His images have been published in various magazines and online magazines.

In this episode of the podcast, Ole and I have a wonderful time meandering through various topics, including what it is like living in Norway, what makes landscape photography fun, how his background in mathematics has translated into his landscape photography work, our thoughts on creativity, whether or not we should be accountable to others as artists, what the heck happened to 500px and is Instagram any better? And we talked about my latest article over on 500px, and a lot more. 

This week on Patreon, Ole and I discuss our own answers to the question, "Is landscape photography characterized by elitism and hierarchies?"
