Matt Payne Photography Blog: Interview With Erwin Buske On F-Stop Collaborate And Listen

June 27, 2018

Welcome to episode 062 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast with Erwin Buske!

Erwin is a landscape photographer based out of Fairwood, Washington. His goal is to capture the essence of the landscape through the lens of his inner vision. Erwin started his photographic journey at an early age with a simple goal to share my vision of the incredible landscapes he was witnessing on my many backpacking and hiking trips. His motto as a photographer is the same as the Sierra Club-to leave no trace, respecting the landscape he is photographing, and keeping it pristine for future generations. Erwin often leads hikes for children deep into the cascades helping cultivate the appreciation of the outdoors in our next generation.

We covered some great topics this week, including:

1. How Erwin got into landscape photography and his evolution as an artist.

2. Finding your photographic vision.

3. Leave No Trace ethics.

Over on Patreon this week, Erwin and I had a fabulous conversation about backpacking and how that influences our gear choices. If you're looking to get into backpacking, it is a great listen!
