This week I had an amazing time chatting it up with one of my favorite photographers - Sigfrido Zimmermann. Sigfrido is an ecologist for his day job and an fantastic nature photographer in his spare time. He combines his knowledge of ecological processes to make some really stunning images, which is what we talk about in this week's show, at length.
Sigfrido and I had a wonderful conversation and started out with a lot of background on his area of scientific research, which I think will help you later on if you stay tuned!
On this week's episode, we discuss:
- Sigfrido's journey into nature photography,
- Sigfrido's area of scientific research as an ecologist,
- Why Sigfrido makes images,
- The connection between Sigfrido's scientific research and his photography,
- How non-scientists can leverage science to make better photographs,
- Working in projects as a photographer,
- And a lot more!
