Matt Payne Photography Blog: The History Of Landscape Photography - A Special 200th Episode Featuring Guy Tal & Michael Gordon

February 17, 2021

Welcome to episode 200 of F-Stop Collaborate and Listen!

To celebrate our 200th episode, I queried our listeners on our Facebook Group for ideas on a 200th episode. The idea that really resonated for me was to discuss the History of Landscape Photography, so I invited two of the wisest photographers I could think of for a conversation about that and the relevance it has on the environment we find ourselves in today.

I was so thankful to be able to get Guy Tal and Michael Gordon to join me for this conversation.

Guy and Michael teach very unique workshops together and have for over a decade. I consider both of them to be two of the most thoughtful and influential leaders in contemporary landscape photography.

So, buckle your seat belts and get ready for a good one.

In addition to the History of Landscape Photography, we covered some very interesting topics this week, including:

  • Landscape Photography's acceptance as an artform.
  • Is it important to adhere to the fidelity of the craft's history?
  • How the history of Landscape Photography has influenced us,
  • And lots more!
