Matt Payne Photography Blog: Interview With Cody Duncan On F-Stop Collaborate And Listen

November 7, 2018

Welcome to Episode 081 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast with Cody Duncan!

Cody Duncan is an award-winning landscape photographer living in Lofoten, Norway. Though he was born and raised under the bright Californian sun, the last decade of his life has often seen him traveling to the wilds of northern Europe, where he's inspired by the mixture of landscape, weather, history, and culture. In early 2016, after over 20 visits in the previous 15 years, he was finally able to move to the Lofoten Islands in northern Norway. 

We covered some great topics this week, including:

1. His journey to Lofoten, Norway as a photographer.

2. Social media's effect on locations.

3. The impact of nature photography on Lofoten.

4. Cultural differences between Norway and the USA from the perspective of a photographer.
