Many important questions were asked of and answered by the panel of participants, including:

1. Have you noticed any shifts in the landscape photography community as it relates to topics that have emerged here on the podcast?

2. How would you rate the state of Creativity in landscape photography?

3. Who influences you the most and why?

4. How do you imagine Landscape Photography in 10 years?

5. Where do you feel weakest as a landscape photographer?

6. In the early history of photography, photographers played a vital role in the preservation of wild lands. This continued to a small degree over the last century but more recently has been forgotten. Do you think we have a role to play in this arena today? If yes, what should it look like? How do we go about retaking that role?

And MANY MORE!
