Matt Payne Photography Blog: A Teacher's Perspective In Landscape Photography - A Conversation With Zoe Pamintuan

June 16, 2021  |  Joshua Tree National Park

Welcome to episode 217 of F-Stop Collaborate and Listen!

This week on the podcast I was joined by a Filipino-American photographer living in Southern California - Zoe Pamintuan.

Zoe is a full-time teacher for middle-school children and has been a photographer since she was a child. Her photography has been heavily influenced by Joshua Tree National Park as well as architectural structures. Of late, she has been focused on black and white imagery and has been doing a lot of introspection with her photographic process to try to determine the meaning behind her work - a large focus of our conversation on today's show.

Over on Patreon this week, Zoe and I discuss how to seek meaning in our photographs. You can listen to this bonus episode and hundreds more by supporting the show at $5 per month.
