Welcome to the podcast where I have amazing conversations the world's best landscape photographers, industry insiders, and more! The format for the podcast is a relaxed but in-depth conversation - we touch on all types of topics relating to landscape photography, including workflow, becoming a professional full-time photographer, social media, conservationism, the business of photography, finding motivation to shoot, and more.
