May 20, 2020

Welcome to episode 161 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast.

This week features an incredible landscape photographer hailing from Western Australia, Christian Fletcher. Christian was the very first winner of the International Landscape Photographer of the Year award in 2014 and his work continues to inspire many people across the globe. Christian is especially well-known for his incredible aerial photography and for owning and operating a fabulous gallery. Christian and I had a wonderful conversation this week and covered a wide variety of topics, including:

  • A walk down a path of history in the industry of landscape photography.
  • Christian's style of photography and how he creates unique and personal imagery.
  • The business of owning a photography gallery.
  • Christian's online training website.
  • ... and much, much more

Over on Patreon this week, Christian and I talk about his belief that all great landscape photographs have to have "perfect light."
