Erik Stensland

Episode 051 of F-Stop Collaborate and Listen with Estes Park, Colorado photographer Erik Stensland!

This week we share a special recording of the podcast. Erik and I recorded this one in person from Ridgway, Colorado - it was a really special experience and I am so excited to share it with the world. Erik is one of the most thoughtful, intelligent, engaging, and interesting landscape photographers of our time. His journey as a photographer is incredibly interesting and inspiring. His outlook and approach is refreshing and has provided me with a great deal of inspiration and I hope it will for you as well.

We covered some great topics this week, including:

  • Erik's journey into photography and a gallery owner.
  • Nature as a vehicle for self-healing and the connection to introversion.
  • Leadership and our role as photographers in the conservation movement.
  • How to bring goodness to the world though photography.
  • Why do you take photos?

Over on Patreon this week Erik talked about owning and operating a gallery - a must listen for anyone who has ever been interested in that!

Light and ShadowLight and ShadowThis morning was one of those beautiful blue sky days up here in the mountains. Unfortunately, clear skies are what most landscape photographers dread, as such conditions are not conducive to photography. So, I decided to find something different.

I found these trees in Horseshoe Park and waited until the first light just hit them. It still hadn't reached the hill and trees behind them, leaving them in the shadows. Their fresh green foliage glowed in the warm light as birds sang and flew from branch to branch, celebrating the new day. Just behind these trees, out of sight of the camera, elk with shiny fresh coats and velvet covered antlers were running through the meadow.

Mountain SymphonyMountain SymphonyThe tundra explodes with wildflowers in mid-summer in Rocky Mountain National Park as the Never Summer Mountains try to hold on to their remaining snow. This dynamic scene that reoccurs ever summer is nothing short of glorious as the world seems for a short while to overflow with music.
