Matt Payne Photography Blog: Interview With Guy Tal On F-Stop Collaborate And Listen

August 8, 2017

Episode 016 with Utah-based landscape photographer, and writer, Guy Tal. I can't tell you how excited I was to get Guy on the podcast! His writing about landscape photography has been an inspiration for years. Guy believes that the practice of creative pursuits manifests not only in the making of art, but also has the ability to transform and enrich life, facilitate meaningful and rewarding experiences, and foster contentment and satisfaction through lifelong discovery and learning. Our conversation was thought-provoking to say the least! We covered the topics of conservation, how Guy found his love for photography and the landscape, and the sacredness of experiencing the natural world.
