Making Unique and Personally-Expressive Photographs

February 7, 2022  |  United Kingdom

Welcome to episode 251 of F-Stop Collaborate and Listen with your host Matt Payne.

This week on the podcast, I was joined by none other than Rachael Talibart, a photographer from the U.K. who is known for her wave and coastal photography.

Rachael has been interviewed countless times before on other podcasts; however, I wanted to dig deeper into what makes her tick and what her processes are in the field to make unique and exceptional work.

On this week's episode we discuss:

  • The importance of originality in Rachael's work,
  • How Rachael instills ideals of self-expression and originality into her students,
  • Tips on how to create more personal and unique photography,
  • Rachael's approaches to some of her more recent photographs on the coast,
  • Book publishing,
  • And a lot more!

Over on Patreon this week, Rachael and I discuss why she decided to specialize in photography as opposed to being more of a generalist.

Here's who Rachael recommended for the podcast this week:
