Matt Payne Photography Blog: Experience-Driven Landscape Photography - A Conversation With Murray Livingston

December 13, 2021  |  South Africa

Welcome to episode 243 of F-Stop Collaborate and Listen!

This week on the podcast I was joined by Murray Livingston - a South African landscape photographer and freelance architect who actively practices a contemplative style of photography while living out of his off-grid van.

On this week's episode we discuss:

  • How Murray's study of architecture has influenced his approach to landscape photography,
  • How Murray plan to continue to push his photography into a full-time pursuit,
  • The roles that landscape photography and being in nature have in his life,
  • The creative process,
  • Experience-driven vs. outcome-driven landscape photography
  • And a lot more!

Over on Patreon this week, we recorded a bonus episode for people that are kind enough to financially support the show over there. Murray and I discuss how landscape photography is a form of thought.

Here's who Murray recommended for the podcast this week:
