F-Stop Collaborate and Listen

Travis Andersen - Ski photography in Bozeman, Montana

Welcome to Episode 121 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast. This week's episode features a photographer living in Bozeman, Montana, Travis Andersen. I met up with Travis in person in his shop to talk all about, well, shop!Travis owns his own print lab called White Creek Art and does a knock out job of creating and printing ski posters for resorts all over the country. Travis and I covered a lot of fun ground this week, including:

  • His journey as a landscape photographer and print lab owner.
  • Ski photography.
  • Panorama photography.
  • A crazy story about how he started his own printing business.
  • Breathing Color paper products for Epson printers.
  • Attachment to our favorite images and how they are so hard to sell!
  • Photographing with the intent to sell.
  • Authenticity.
  • Being a photographer as a busy family man... and lots more!

Over on Patreon, Travis and I shared stories from Yellowstone National Park and he shares an absolutely insane story about a Grizzly Bear attack!
