Matt Payne Photography Blog: A Conversation With Weihao Pan On The F-Stop Collaborate And Listen Podcast - July 31, 2019

Welcome to Episode 119 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast. This week's episode features our first landscape photographer from China - Weihao Pan. Weihao and I covered a lot of fun ground this week, including:

  • His journey as a landscape photographer.
  • Paul Reiffer's article on Southern France and Instagram photographers.
  • Exploring China and Tibet as a landscape photographer.
  • Stories from Tibet.
  • Photographing the Himalaya Mountains.
  • What its like to take a Marc Adamus workshop.
  • Social media & behavior from photographers in China.

Over on Patreon, Weihao and I dissect and discuss several of his images that have received awards over the past couple of years.

    Additionally, Patrons of the podcast are encouraged to participate in our themed photo contests by submitting them to the "community board" on our Patreon Page. The current theme, which ends on August 30th, is "Nemesis." I know we all have our own photo nemesis, whether it be a scene we have shot a thousand times that never had good light, or something else. Let's see those awesome shots over on our community board!

    Here are the photographers that Weihao recommended for the podcast:

    1. Ted Gore.

    2. Marsell Van Oosten.

    3. Shirō Shirahata.

    4. Hiroki Fujita.

    Speaking of Patreon, I'd like to announce the winner of our "Mountains and Deserts" theme. We had some great submissions from Jarrod Hills, DCraig Young, and Michael Ryno. In the end, I had to go with the photograph submitted by Michael Ryno. Its a photo from Yosemite that really resonated for me.
