Conversation with Rajesh Jyothiswaran on F-Stop Collaborate and Listen
Episode 064 of F-Stop Collaborate and Listen with Rajesh Jyothiswaran!
Rajesh Jyothiswaran is a self taught photographer born out of a chance realization of his own latent photography skills when a smartphone photo of his native plant garden in the suburbs of Dallas, Texas went viral led to the purchase of his first DSLR. His interests range from macro to astro though landscape and astrophotography in places rarely photographed excite him the most. Photography has taken him on a path of self-discovery, learning, and meaningful friendships across the world. His images have been displayed at several exhibitions, He has also won several awards for his work including the 2017 International Landscape Photographer of the Year Top 101 award and a Top 10 finalist in the Smithsonian 15th Annual Photo Contest. Born and raised in India, Rajesh lives in North Texas with his wife and two daughters. He aspires to continue growing as an artist and be a source of inspiration to others.
We covered some great topics this week, including:
1. How Rajesh got into landscape photography.
2. Challenges as a landscape photographer in Texas.
3. Bias and discrimination in landscape photography.
4. Recognition and its importance for photographers.
Over on Patreon this week, Rajesh and I had a fabulous conversation about a recent controversy he was involved in when he posted a photo of Mobius Arch with people standing on it.
