Matt Payne Photography Blog: How To Succeed On Instagram - A Conversation With Sarah Lyndsay

April 14, 2020

Welcome to Episode 156 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast.

This week, I had a fantastic conversation with Sarah Lyndsay. Sarah Lyndsay is a Canadian landscape, portrait, and wedding photographer and Instagram star.

We had a great chat this week and covered some fun topics:

  • Landscape photography completely changed her life and Sarah shared her uplifting story with us on the show this week.
  • Sarah and I talked about how she is pivoting and adjusting to the COVID-19 situation by using her YouTube channel and we discuss how others can do the same.
  • Sarah also shared her tips on how she has leveraged the Instagram platform to gain her following.
  • What motivates Sarah create photos.
  • We also discuss her landscape self-portraits and we take a stab at discussing gender issues surrounding photography.

I hope you enjoy our conversation!
