Matt Payne Photography Blog: A Voyage Of Discovery In Photography

April 25, 2022

Photography can be a life-long pursuit that takes many shapes, sizes, and paths. On today's podcast episode, we explore the path of David Southern, a photographer living on the coast of northeast United Kingdom. David's voyage of discovery through photography started a long time ago on a trip to Chile and through a career in Information Technology with the World Wildlife Fund. Ever since I saw the images he submitted in the Natural Landscape Photography Awards, I knew David Southern would make for an interesting guest here on the podcast.
