Welcome to episode 051 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast with Estes Park, Colorado photographer Erik Stensland!
This week we share a special recording of the podcast. Erik and I recorded this one in person from Ridgway, Colorado - it was a really special experience and I am so excited to share it with the world. Erik is one of the most thoughtful, intelligent, engaging, and interesting landscape photographers of our time. His journey as a photographer is incredibly interesting and inspiring. His outlook and approach is refreshing and has provided me with a great deal of inspiration and I hope it will for you as well.
We covered some great topics this week, including:
- Erik's journey into photography and a gallery owner.
- Nature as a vehicle for self-healing and the connection to introversion.
- Leadership and our role as photographers in the conservation movement.
- How to bring goodness to the world though photography.
- Why do you take photos?
Over on Patreon this week Erik talked about owning and operating a gallery - a must listen for anyone who has ever been interested in that!
Please consider supporting the podcast on Patreon! There's a ton of bonus content over there for subscribers! We are closer to our goal of being able to award a $1,000 prize to a photographer dedicated to conservation.
