Matt Payne Photography Blog: Landscape Photography And Craft Beer For Good - A Conversation With Jonathan Buford

November 29, 2021  |  Arizona

Welcome to episode 241 of F-Stop Collaborate and Listen!

This week on the podcast I was joined by Jonathan Buford - a landscape photographer and the founder & owner of Arizona Wilderness Brewing Company.

Jonathan founded his brewery with a conservation focus and goal, which intersects with his personal goals for his photography as well. Jonathan is working on a photography book project where he is focusing on all 90 wilderness areas in Arizona, with the hopes of showing the world why these places are so special and why we need to do more to protect them as photographers.

On this week's episode we discuss:

  • How photography led Jonathan to found Arizona Wilderness Brewing Company,
  • The conundrums we all face when photographing wild places,
  • Why failure is ok as a landscape photographer,
  • And a lot more!

Here's who Jonathan recommended for the podcast this week:

Other items mentioned on the show:

2. F-Stop Collaborate and Listen T-Shirt!
