Matt Payne Photography Blog: A Panel Discussion On NFTs And Landscape & Nature Photography

August 25, 2021  |  The Ethereum Blockchain

Welcome to episode 227 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast!

Brynn Schmidt

This week on the podcast I was joined by Brynn Schmidt, Alex Noriega, and Alex Nail to talk about the most controversial and divisive topics in the landscape and nature photography community at the present moment - NFTs.

In today's episode, you can expect to hear four adults have a very respectful and cordial conversation and debate about NFTs which has been sorely lacking from social media as of late.

Alex Noriega - Hibernation

You can also expect to learn quite a bit and gain some perspectives, no matter what side of the argument you find yourself, or perhaps gain a better understanding if you don't find yourself on one side at all.

We discuss:

  • What are NFTs and how do they and their marketplaces work?
  • The various positives and negatives of NFTs,
  • The newly formed community of NFT photographers on Twitter,
  • The carbon and environmental impacts of NFTs and how we can openly discuss those,
  • Why certain NFTs are selling and others are not,
  • And a lot more!

Thank you to Brynn, Alex, and Alex for joining for the vulnerable but important conversation!
