Matt Payne Photography Blog: Conversations With Nature - Catching Up With Eric Bennett On The Podcast - October 7, 2020

Welcome to episode 181 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast.

This week on the podcast I sat down and visited with one of our first guests, Eric Bennett.

Eric is arguably one of the best landscape photographers of the past decade. He has a unique vision and style that I greatly appreciate. He is also a fellow co-founder of the Nature First Photography Alliance, and a fellow beer connoisseur. Eric is one of the most passionate stewards of public lands I have ever met and it really shines in his photography. I really enjoyed our discussion this week and I hope you will as well.

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

  • Eric's approach to organizing and curating his online photography gallery.
  • Eric's approach to making personally meaningful photographs.
  • Eric's new book called "Conversations with Nature."
  • ... and more!

Over on Patreon this week, Eric and I discuss the power of mentor-ship in a digital world and how we have leveraged these relationships in our pursuit of better photography.OK - let's get to the show!

I hope you enjoy our conversations!
