Matt Payne Photography Blog: A Conversation With Paul Marcellini On The F-Stop Collaborate And Listen Podcast - August 7, 2019

Welcome to Episode 120 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast. 

This week's episode features an incredible landscape photographer from Florida, USA - Paul Marcellini. Paul is an award winning photographer known for his work in the Everglades and for his many contest wins throughout the years. Paul and I covered a lot of fun ground this week, including:

  • His journey as a landscape photographer and the role of NPN to help him improve.
  • His environmental science degree and how that intersects with his views on landscape photography.
  • Using photos to tell a story about a place and its ecosystems.
  • Photographing icons.
  • Printing and art shows.
  • Having his photo on a USPS stamp.

    Over on Patreon, Paul and I had a fantastic time discussing his methods for naming photos, and a ton more! We also talked about using Anton Averin's photo naming app!

      Here are the photographers that Paul recommended for the podcast:

      1. Clay Bolt.

      2. Jerry Greer.
