Photographing Waves and Lava with Nick Selway

June 19, 2019

Welcome to Episode 113 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast. This week's guest is Colorado-based Landscape Photographer Nick Selway.

Nick is a landscape photographer living in Breckenridge, Colorado. He moved to Colorado last year after spending many years as a successful gallery operator and photographer in Hawaii with his friend and business partner CJ Kale. For this episode, I traveled to Breckenridge to sit down in person with Nick in his amazing gallery space to talk all about his journey, including his love for photographing waves and lava, how he manages to survive as a gallery owner, and a lot more.

This week on Patreon, Nick and I talk all about printing. I think you'll enjoy his relaxed approach. We talk about prepping files for BayPhoto and how he works with Nevada Art Printers.

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!

    1. Don and Linda Hurzeler.
