Matt Payne Photography Blog: Interview With Mike Sanchez On F-Stop Collaborate And Listen

September 5, 2017

Welcome to episode 019 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast with Scottsdale, Arizona based landscape photographer, Mike Sanchez. I have been appreciating Mike's excellent night photography for awhile now and thought he would be an excellent guest on the podcast. His images speak for themselves, and Mike was a thought-provoking guest. Mike picked up photography as a hobby in 2008, but it really became a passion only a few short years ago in 2014, when he received his first Nikon and started shooting night photography. Since then, it has transformed his life and given him a deeper sense of purpose.

We covered some really great topics, including social media's positive influence on his photography journey, how he got into night photography, conservation of the environment and the interplay with landscape photography, and much more!

I know you'll enjoy this one. As usual, please find some links to various topics we covered below:

  1. Leave No Trace Ethics
  2. Arizona Highways Feature Article
  3. The photography of Joel Hazleton
  4. The photography of Jack Dykinga
