Matt Payne Photography Blog: All About Creativity And Cultural Fluidity - A Conversation With Alfonso Calero

September 29, 2021  |  Australia

Welcome to episode 232 of F-Stop Collaborate and Listen!

This week on the podcast I was joined by Alfonso Calero, a travel and landscape photographer born in the Philippines, living in Australia.

Alfonso and I met on the audio app Clubhouse and he has been a regular contributor to our weekly Clubhouse after-parties for the podcast. He runs his own photography tour business in Australia and is fluent in several languages. His cultural fluidity is something he is able to leverage in order to maximize the experience of his workshop clients, which is something we speak about on the show. We also cover the heavy topic of creativity extensively.

On today's podcast we covered a wide array of topics that you'll hopefully enjoy.

We discuss:
  • Seeing beauty in the ordinary,
  • Photography as a subconscious visual collection,
  • Creativity!
  • Mindful execution of workshops that meet your clients' needs,
  • The influence of culture on Alfonso's photography,
  • And a lot more!

    Over on Patreon this week, we had a great conversation about leveraging visual communication as a tool for therapy, so be sure to tune in this week over there. If you're not yet supporting the show on Patreon, I'd appreciate it if you did.
