Matt Payne Photography Blog: Collaborating With Interior Designers As Photographers - A Conversation With Nicoli Alexander - September 23, 2020

Hey everyone!

Welcome to episode 179 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast.

For this week's episode of the podcast I sat down and had a long conversation with a wonderful interior designer living in Denver, Colorado - Nicoli Alexander.

Nicoli frequently collaborates with artists of all types and has a great deal of insight as to how to best engage with other creatives to collaborate and work together on a project.

Nicoli and I discuss some interesting topics this week, including:

  • How Nicoli got into interior design.
  • How photographers can collaborate with interior designers.
  • How COVID-19 has inspired him and other artists to work collaboratively.
  • ... and more!

Over on Patreon this week, Nicoli answers several listener questions from our Facebook Group, including:

  • How do interior designers choose between stock photography vs. working directly with photographers?
  • What % of interior designers' process is tied to artwork?
  • How well do abstract or more intimate subjects work for interior design projects?
  • How can landscape photographers work with interior designers to combine various themed art?
  • What photography presentation mediums are "in style" for interior designers?
  • What sources do you use to find new artists to work with?
  • How can landscape photographers inspire interior designers to use more nature photography?

You can follow Nicoli on Instagram too.

I hope you enjoy our conversations!
