Matt Payne Photography Blog: Flow States For Photography - A Conversation With Ben Maze

April 4, 2022  |  Australia

This week I was joined by an Aussie landscape and nature photographer, Ben Maze. Ben is quickly becoming one of my favorite photographers as well as one of the most genuine and thoughtful members of our community. I've enjoyed many conversations with Ben on Discord and Instagram and I was so excited to finally get him onto the podcast for a chat.

On this week's episode, we discuss:

  • Ben's introduction into photography and his choice to not attend college.
  • Creating community for landscape photographers on Discord.
  • Ben's shift to project-based work, like his Geomorph project.
  • Entering Flow State in Nature Photography.
  • Ben's thoughts on NFTs as someone who used to do them.
  • Photographers who inspire Ben.
