Matt Payne Photography Blog: Creating Personally Meaningful Projects In Photography And Filmmaking With Ashlei Payne

March 7, 2022  |  Greenland

Welcome to episode 255 of F-Stop Collaborate and Listen!

This week on the podcast, I was joined by a photographer and film-maker who lives in California but travels internationally to focus on projects of personal importance - Ashlei Payne.

I was fortunate to meet Ashlei recently when I was photographing in Death Valley and she was recommended to us by former guest Talor Stone, who she is partnering with on an upcoming project in Greenland.


On this week's episode we discuss:

  • Ashlei's start in photography,
  • The differences and similarities between filmmaking and landscape photography,
  • Creating personal projects that are personally meaningful,
  • Her and Talor's project to document the impact of tourism on indigenous cultures in Greenland,
  • And a lot more!

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