Matt Payne Photography Blog: Quitting Social Media In Landscape Photography - A Conversation With Dave Morrow

March 17, 2021  |  Cascade Range, Washington

Welcome to episode 204 of F-Stop Collaborate and Listen!

This week I was joined by the photographer who famously quit all of his social media accounts in 2018.

Welcome Dave Morrow to the show! Dave is a landscape photographer residing on the west side of the Cascade Range near Seattle, Washington.

Dave and I covered some very interesting topics this week, including:

  • Why he deleted all of his social media accounts in 2018,
  • Why it is risky to build a business on social media platforms,
  • E-mail marketing techniques and strategies,
  • The benefits of backpacking and wilderness photography,
  • Our strategies for staying in top physical condition for this style of photography,
  • And lots more!

Over on Patreon this week, Dave and I discuss the importance of cross-disciplinary skill-building as a way to round yourself out to become a better person, photographer, and business-person.
