Matt Payne Photography Blog: Nature Photography As A Lifelong Pursuit

September 5, 2022  |  La Verkin, Utah

When nature photography is seen as an integral part of our life, it takes on new meaning and provides focus for our true goals with this artistic medium. As such, it was a fabulous honor to discuss this among many other topics with the guest of this week's episode of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast.

This week on the podcast I had the pleasure of talking with one of my favorite nature photographers out of Utah - Eric Erlenbusch.

Eric and I had a wonderful conversation about his approach to making unique photographs, including stories about how he created three of his favorite photographs. We also talked about his experience working as the gallery director for Thomas Mangelsen.

On this week's episode, we discuss:

  • The process for making unique nature and landscape photographs,
  • Goals in our photography,
  • Defining success in our photography,
  • Jump-starting the creative process,
  • Stories about some of Eric's favorite images,
  • Eric's experience working with Thomas Mangelsen,
  • And a lot more!
