Matt Payne Photography Blog: Controversy In Landscape Photography - Interview With Ryan Dyar

December 5, 2018

Welcome to Episode 085 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast with Ryan Dyar!

Ryan Dyar probably needs no introduction to most landscape photographers listening to the podcast; however, if you have never heard of Ryan or seen his work, you're in for a real treat. Ryan is based out of Seattle, Washington and has been a full-time landscape photographer for several years. Ryan is very down-to-earth and was very fun to talk to on the podcast. My goal this week was to really help folks get to know Ryan on a personal level.

We covered some fun topics this week, including:

1. Controversy and in-fighting among landscape photographers.

2. Ryan's post-processing videos and his approach to them.

3. How Ryan makes it as a full-time photographer.

4. Answers to questions posed in our Facebook group.
