Matt Payne Photography Blog: A Focus On Women In Landscape Photography - A Conversation With Sarina Jackson

December 20, 2021  |  Sydney, Australia

Welcome to episode 244 of F-Stop Collaborate and Listen!

This week on the podcast I was joined by Sarina Jackson - a lawyer and landscape photographer living in Sydney, Australia. Sarina is the co-founder of In Focus Women, a community and podcast created to celebrate and bring together female landscape photographers from around the world.

On this week's episode we discuss:

  • Why Sarina decided to create the In Focus Women community and podcast,
  • What Sarina has learned by running a community focused on women photographers,
  • Challenges women face in landscape photography that men take for granted,
  • The Catch-22 we face by choosing to (or not to) differentiate women from men in landscape photography,
  • How her photography has been impacted by the work she has put into In Focus Women,
  • And a lot more!

Over on Patreon this week, Sarina and I talk about her journey into drone photography and how it has transformed her approach to landscape photography.

Here's who Sarina recommended for the podcast this week:
