Matt Payne Photography Blog: A Conversation With David Brookover On The F-Stop Collaborate And Listen Podcast - August 12, 2020

Welcome to episode 173 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast.

This week's episode features a photographer who has owned their own gallery in Jackson Hole, Wyoming since 2001 - David Brookover.

David's gallery is filled with custom-framed platinum palladium prints from his extensive travels throughout the world as a fine art landscape photographer. David got his start as a photographer while studying acupuncture in Japan back in 1986, where he was immersed in the Japanese culture which had a significant influence on his work as a photographer.

David and I discuss some interesting topics, including:
  • How David used photography as a way to understand a new place and culture,
  • Transitioning from a full-time job to full-time photography,
  • Platinum Palladium printing and his print-making process,
  • The secret to longevity in the craft of landscape photography
  • ... and more!

I hope you enjoy our conversation.

Here are the photographers that David recommended for the podcast:

1. Clyde Butcher.

2. Keith Carter.

3. Jake Davis.

4. Sally Mann.

5. Kenro Izu.
