Matt Payne Photography Blog: Interview With Len Metcalf On F-Stop Collaborate And Listen - April 25, 2018

Welcome to episode 053 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast with Len Metcalf!

It was fantastic to have Len on the podcast all the way from Australia! Len is a professional photographer specializing in digital black and white photography. Len spends most of his time teaching photography through his business, Len's School

We covered some great topics this week, including:

  • How Len got into photography while growing up in Australia.
  • Teaching photography for a living and how to effectively teach as a workshop leader.
  • Digital Black and White Photography.
  • Reaching your fans through a daily blog post.
  • Composition.

Over on Patreon this week, Len and I discussed the fascinating intersection between ethics and teaching. 

Please consider supporting the podcast on Patreon! There's a ton of bonus content over there for subscribers! We are working on our goal of being able to award a $1,000 prize to a photographer dedicated to conservation.
