Welcome to episode 044 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast with California-based landscape photographer Mark Handy! I have been a huge fan of Mark's work ever since I learned about him through the podcast. Mark is a wildly successful photographer, having owned his own gallery in La Jolla, CA. Mark is perhaps one of the most thoughtful and interesting photographers that I have had the pleasure of speaking with on the podcast. I think you'll really enjoy this episode!
We covered some great topics this week, including:
- Mark's journey into landscape photography
- Ethics and digital manipulation (look for a full 45 minute conversation about this on Patreon)!
- Owning his own gallery in La Jolla, CA
- Shooting digital medium format (Phase One)
- Selling images as limited editions of ONE
- The influence of luck
Special announcements: Please consider supporting the podcast on Patreon! Let’s keep the conversations going! I recently set a goal of $1,000 in monthly contributions which I will use to seed a $1,000 landscape conversation award. This will only be possible if people contribute on Patreon!
Lastly, I am happy to announce that I'm now a Formatt-Hitech filter ambassador. Listeners to the podcast get 10% off their order if they use the code "PAYNE10" - thanks for supporting the podcast!
