Matt Payne Photography Blog: Unlocking The Puzzle Of The Forest

June 27, 2022  |  Vancouver, British Columbia

Photographing the forest can be one of the most challenging things a nature and landscape photographer can do, which is why I was super excited to chat with this week's guest on my podcast.

This week on the podcast, I was joined by Tristan Todd, a landscape photographer from Vancouver, British Columbia. I have become friends with Tristan through the Discord channel he created for landscape photographers. We have had some really great discussions over there that are not dependent upon the social media algorithms, and it has been a great place to hang-out.

On this week's episode, we discuss:

  • Tristan's transition from the restaurant industry into full-time photography,
  • The challenges of forest photography,
  • The value of exploration,
  • Planning trips vs. planning shots,
  • Social media woes,
  • And a lot more!

Other topics discussed on the podcast this week:
