Matt Payne Photography Blog: Artists Asking Artists #1 - Hans Strand & Eric Bennett

July 18, 2022

Providing photographers a platform through which they can converse with one of their heroes is something I have wanted to try on my podcast for a long time.

Other artists can inspire us to become better photographers and to take risks with our work. Such is the case in our first installation of the "Artists Asking Artists" series of the "F-Stop Collaborate and Listen" Podcast.

This week, I invited Hans Strand back onto the show and I gave photographer Eric Bennett the opportunity to ask Hans any questions he wanted. I hope that you find this format interesting, as I hope to do more of these in the future. Please do let us know!

On this week's episode, Eric asks Hans some great questions about his career, his photographic journey, his approach to making images, and a ton more. Topics include:

  • How the craft has changed since Hans started in the field,
  • Hans' approach to composition,
  • Hans' approach to making aerial images,
  • Advice for other photographers looking to go full-time,
  • The value of critique,
  • and a LOT more!
