Conversation with Eric Bennett on F-Stop Collaborate and Listen

Episode 041 of F-Stop Collaborate and Listen with Utah-based landscape photographer Eric Bennett! I've been a huge fan of Eric's photography for quite a long time! Eric also might be one of the funniest guys I've ever chatted with online - his sense of humor is incredible, and I think it translated nicely onto the podcast format. Eric has been recommended to be on the podcast by many photographers and I think if you've never seen his work before, you should go take a look immediately - it is world class! 

Eric and I covered some great topics this week, including:

  • How Eric got into Landscape Photography
  • How photography can help preserve our wilderness
  • Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument
  • Becoming a full-time professional photographer and the concept that money is the result of the cause and not the cause of the result
  • Backpacking
  • The pros and cons of travelling for long amounts of time as a photographer
  • Collaboration vs. competition

Special announcements: Please consider supporting the podcast on Patreon! Let’s keep the conversations going! I recently set a goal of $1,000 in monthly contributions which I will use to seed a $1,000 landscape conversation award. This will only be possible if people contribute on Patreon!

Additionally, we have collaborated with The League Magazine. 

$50 supporters of the podcast on Patreon will get you a free subscription to The League if you sign up on Patreon between now and the end of February, 2018. The League subscription would normally cost you $50, so basically you are getting it for free while supporting the podcast!

Supporters already at the $50 level will get the subscription too!

League is an annual collectors’ compendium of unique, thoughtful photographic art comprised primarily of work from the League of Landscape Photographers. Two key principles underpin the publication: contributors espouse a mindful, ethical code of behavior in creating photographic work; and contributors wrestle with or promote dialogue about contemporary issues facing humans and the landscape.

Lastly, I am happy to announce that I'm now a Formatt-Hitech filter ambassador. Listeners to the podcast get 10% off their order if they use the code "PAYNE10" - thanks for supporting the podcast!

Thanks again for the opportunity to chat about what motivates me to photograph our wild and natural places. It was a great experience being interviewed by you, Matt and I appreciate your laid back and relaxed format which helped me feel comfortable. I have enjoyed all of the other conversations you have done on the podcast and I am impressed by the all star cast you have already been able to have on! Can't wait to see what other guests you have on in the future!
