Matt Payne Photography Blog: Discovering Little Surprises In Nature Photography

October 24, 2022  |  Nature

Small scenes in nature photography are like finding little surprises to explore visually with the camera. They can lead to an enriching relationship with nature and photography and expand a photographer's appreciation for light, subjects, and field craft.

This week on Episode 288 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast, I had a wonderful conversation with L.A. based photographer Martin Gonzalez. We discussed his attraction to smaller scenes, why he makes photos, how he balances his f/t job with photography, anxiety in photography, and so much more, so have some coffee, tea, or beer, and enjoy the chat.

On this week's episode, we discuss:

  • Martin's journey into nature photography,
  • How Martin finds balance with his full-time job and photography,
  • Why Martin thinks he will stay away from full-time photography,
  • Anxiety and nature photography,
  • Martin's diagnosis of Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and its impact on his photography,
  • And a lot more!
