Matt Payne Photography Blog: A Photographer's Battle With Colon Cancer - A Conversation With Scott Wilson

August 11, 2021  |  Colorado

Welcome to episode 225 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast!

This week on the podcast I was joined by Scott Wilson, a landscape, wildlife, cityscape, and portrait photographer who recently has overcome a stage 4 Colon Cancer diagnosis. Scott leveraged his love for photography to overcome his diagnosis and has leveraged his recovery as a catalyst to take his artwork to new levels. On today's show, you will be inspired by Scott's story and his attitude on photography.

Scott and I discuss a variety of topics this week, including:
  • Scott's varied interests in different genres in photography and how they inform each other.
  • Scott's battle with Colon Cancer and the role photography played in his recovery.
  • How to use photography to advocate for various causes you are passionate about.
  • Photographing wild mustangs.
  • Opening a gallery during COVID and his approach to running the business.
  • And a lot more.

Over on Patreon this week, Scott and I discuss our shared passion for Seascapes and the sense of camaraderie you can have when photographing with friends.
