Matt Payne Photography Blog: Photography From The South Pole

May 30, 2022  |  South Pole

How our interests in life inspire our photographic journey is an important ingredient that helps forge who we are as photographers. As such, I had an awesome time talking with these week's guest on episode 267 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast about how he mixes his study of science with his passion for photography.

I was joined by a photographer and astrophysicist living at the South Pole - Aman Chokshi.

We also had a great co-host his week, Rajesh Jyothiswaran, who helped to set-up this conversation, which was not easy considering the logistics of internet access at the South Pole! Thanks Rajesh!

On this week's episode, we also discuss:

  • Aman's journey into photography,
  • Travelling across India on a bicycle,
  • Photographing Ladakh,
  • Mixing astrophysics and photography,
  • Aman's homemade star tracker,
  • What it's like being a photographer at the South Pole,
  • What is of interest as a photographer at the South Pole,
  • And a lot more!

Other topics discussed on the podcast this week:
