For many photographers, planning our photography trips can be a chore or can feel like a waste of time. That resonates with me and I rarely spend a lot of time planning my adventures because I personally have not found it to be very helpful in my success as a photographer; however, I see great value in the process and appreciate those who dedicate themselves to doing it well.
Today's guest on the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen Podcast, Chris Saunders, is well-respected by his peers in Australia and is producing some of the most evocative aerial work that can be found. One of the keys to his success revolves around meticulous planning and an attention to detail - something he has developed as an engineer.
On this week's episode, we discuss:
- Chris' journey as a photographer and engineer.
- Starting with the end in mind before setting out to create work.
- Finding ways to make the mundane aspects of photography more fun.
- Approaches to planning photography projects.
- The benefits and challenges of collaboration.
- How to collaborate as an introvert.
- Printing our work from home.
- And a lot more!
