Matt Payne Photography Blog: Interview With Dan Ballard On F-Stop Collaborate And Listen

December 7, 2017

Welcome to episode 032 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast with the internationally-renowned travelling landscape photographer, Dan Ballard. I have been following Dan's work for many years, in fact, ever since I started as a landscape photographer. Dan was super awesome to speak to! We had a lot of fun this week and covered a lot of really great topics. I really enjoyed our conversation and believe me - you will too. 

We covered some really great topics this week, including Dan's journey into landscape photography, what it is like living on the road as a full-time professional photographer, the importance of creating images and seeking out new locations, the importance of a lightweight kit, creating panoramas, how to work with human subjects on travel photography trips, and the current state of landscape photography. 

Please consider supporting the podcast on Patreon! Let’s keep the conversations going! We're getting closer to the goal to produce two podcasts per week, thanks to your support! Patrons can ask future guests questions, get exclusive access to bonus content, get awesome swag, and more! Check it out.
