Matt Payne Photography Blog: Interview With Adam Gibbs On F-Stop Collaborate And Listen - March 28, 2018

Welcome to episode 049 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast with Canada-based landscape photographer Adam Gibbs! Adam has a wonderful catalog of work that he's curated for over 20 years as a full-time landscape photographer. I was able to get him onto the podcast after a lot of demand from other guests and commenters to get him on! We had a fantastic conversation that is well worth a listen. 

We covered some great topics this week, including:

  • How Adam got into Landscape Photography.
  • How Landscape Photography has changed over the years.
  • Instagram and popularity.
  • Adam's workshops.
  • Adam's use of YouTube as a platform.
  • Digital manipulation and the impact on the craft.

Please consider supporting the podcast on Patreon! There's a ton of bonus content over there for subscribers! We are closer to our goal of being able to award a $1,000 prize to a photographer dedicated to conservation. Over on Patreon this week Adam talked about paragliding, rock climbing, and adventure.

The Enchantments in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness is one of my favourite locations to photograph . On my first autumn visit to the area I came across this fine backlit Larch with a wonderful little lake in deep shadow behind. By the time that I had set up my 4x5 camera the light had passed and I had missed the moment. I made a note of the time and location. The following year I made the trek up to this spot once again and sure enough at 1pm on a clear afternoon I managed to get the shot that I had tried to get the year before.
