Welcome to Episode 106 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast with Max Foster!
Max Foster is a fantastic travel and landscape photographer based in Minneapolis, Minnesota who has been travelling the United States with his wife for the last 15 months in their RV. Max is also one of two founding members of "Our World in Focus" - a photography contest website that he started with his friend Matt Meisenheimer. Max and Matt's goal was to create a contest site that offered great prizes at a low cost of entry with great sponsors and fantastic judges.
In this episode of the podcast, Max visited with me in person here in Durango on the last leg of his epic RV trip across the country. We recorded the podcast in Max's RV and talked about a lot of fun topics, including:
- Max's journey into landscape photography
- Max's goal for his 15-month RV trip including various logistics, his use of Campendium.com, stories, how to live with your spouse in a 200 sq ft. home, suggestions for others looking to do a similar trip, and a lot more
- Max's realizations about social media gleaned from his RV trip
- Photography and business thought processes
- Our World in Focus photography contests

Your support is critical - it helps with production costs and to improve the podcast over time. Thanks! Even $1 / mo helps a lot! We are growing closer to our goal of getting to $1,000/mo in support, at which point I will create an award to be given to a photographer that is a champion of conservation. Help us get there!
This week on Patreon, Max and I talk about the logistics behind running workshops and some potential mishaps and pitfalls that workshop leaders may want to avoid.
