Welcome to Episode 075 of F-Stop Collaborate and Listen with David Johnston!

David Johnston is a renowned landscape photographer and educator. Photographing incredible light and rarely seen moments is what drives David to keep capturing landscapes at their best. When David is not shooting, he's teaching photography to the masses on his YouTube channel. It's his passion for spreading the joy of photography that helps him continue deliver helpful tips for others to improve their skills. It doesn't matter if it's landscapes, night skies, or drone work, David has the gift to freeze amazing scenes and memories in place. Sharing photography through podcasts is also one of David's biggest passions. You can listen to his podcast, Stories About Photos, on any podcast platform to get the details on what it takes to capture amazing images.
