F-Stop Collaborate and Listen - A Landscape Photography Podcast

Todd Caudle - A Passion for Colorado Through Landscape Photography

July 1, 2020

Welcome to episode 167 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast. 

This week's episode features a photographer I have been following for many, many years and have had many interactions with on social media over the years. Todd Caudle is perhaps one of the most well-known landscape photographers in Colorado and is the owner of his own publishing company, Skyline Press, a vehicle that Todd uses to publish photography calendars, books, and note cards (and I'm confident if you were looking for someone to help you do the same that Todd would help you out). 

Todd is an award-winning photographer who has explored countless miles of trails and backroads, primarily in our beloved home state of Colorado, seeking landscapes as they are experiencing their most fleeting moments. Rarely content to photograph a static landscape, he is always in pursuit of those dynamic events as weather ebbs and flows, as nighttime turns to day and back again, and as seasons change. His propensity for capturing dramatic climatic events led one close friend and fellow photographer to dub him Cloudman, and the nickname stuck.

Todd and I discuss some interesting topics, including:

  • How Todd got his start as a photographer.
  • What it was like to photograph super-star musicians.
  • How he transitioned into landscape photography.
  • How he got into the publishing business.
  • What encourages and discourages him about the current state of photography.
  • Mountain stretching in post-processing.
  • Lessons learned from Todd's critique of my work back in 2012.
  • ... and more!
