F-Stop Collaborate and Listen - A Landscape Photography Podcast

Alex Burke - Large Format Film Landscape Photography

February 26, 2020

Welcome to Episode 149 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast.

This week's episode features a fellow Coloradoan and Large-format film landscape photographer, Alex Burke. Alex's work is diverse but is largely focused on the mountains of Colorado as well as the plains and prairies of Eastern Colorado. He has been working on a very interesting project where he has been photographing the interaction between man and land in the plains which is really fascinating. Alex survives by selling his work at art shows across the country.

We covered a wide variety of topics, including:

  • His current project.
  • Making more meaningful photos that go beyond what's just beautiful.
  • Backpacking with large format.
  • Composing on large format.
  • Getting stuck in the past techniques as a film photographer.
  • Current trends in landscape photography.

Over on Patreon this week, join Alex and I for a 22-minute bonus episode on art shows, what sells at art shows, how to price your photography, and a discussion about limited edition vs. open edition prints.
