In this episode I’ll be talking to Alister Benn about  his work and motivations along with a  range of other topics I hope you’ll find interesting. Alister Benn lives and works in a secluded Glen on the west coast of Scotland with his wife Ann Kristin. He takes pleasure in sharing his thoughts with others, through his eBooks, video series and mentorships. He is a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society, a musician and composer and writer. He is mildly obsessed with watching birds! Photography for Alister is so much more than an end product, and he believes the more we are focussed on that, the more elusive it will become. Creativity is hard to pin down, it refuses to be placed under the microscope, and observing it changes it. Our creativity lies in creative living; one of acceptance, non-judgement and freedom of speech. Our creativity is in there, desperate to get out, and who does the best job of stopping it? Yes, you guessed it, us! We discuss his thoughts on creativity and how it relates to self worth and explore how he has established his business around the ability to express ourselves through photography along with a whole lot more!

 Ep 37 - Craig Crosthwaite | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:02:46

In this episode I'm talking to Craig Crosthwaite about  his work and motivations along with a  range of other topics I hope you’ll find interesting. After 30 years in the Advertising Industry Craig decided to follow his passion for the coast, surfing and photography. Craig started surfing at the age of 8 and he’s still catching waves. Surfing has given him a passion for the water and an understanding of the elements, wind, waves and weather. He also loved photography, but had limited knowledge of the wonderful things you could achieve through capturing light. So, he undertook a course at RMIT in Melbourne and ignited a passion for all things photographic.  Craig has combined his love of the ocean and his sense of adventure with his newly acquired skills to create a substantial and high quality portfolio of work.  Craig Crosthwaite’s images are a stunning record of the world around us, but they are also an indication of his visual sensitivity, situational awareness, and his commitment to be at that place at that time ready to be surprised by nature. This is not a simple or easy thing, and in this being a surfer has obviously been instructive. Craig’s images show a deep understanding of nature’s ebb and flow, an ability to anticipate elemental movements and place himself at key points in time and space as all these components are drawn together. He has an artist’s eye, knowing how to position himself in the landscape to bring the light and natural elements together to create stunning images. We discuss his passion and how his advertising and graphic design background have shaped his work along with some hair raising adventures during thunderstorms.

 Ep 36 - Adam Karnazc | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:54:06

This week I'm talking to Adam Karnacz about  his work and motivations along with a  range of other topics I hope you’ll find interesting. Venturing to remote locations, Adam strives to inspire a diverse following to explore the art of photography, adventure and the human condition. Drawing on his philosophical approach to life, Adam’s photography goes beyond technique or literal representation of a scene to tell a story that resonates and inspires. For some years photography, whilst still an important part of his life, remained a hobby as, in 2005, Adam joined the Police, moving to London and starting his career on the beat in the Metropolitan force.  It was during these eventful and challenging years that Adam developed a philosophy of life which feeds into everything he does today both as a person and a photographer.  After a number of years of budget cuts and growing disenchantment with the direction policing in Britain was taking he began to contemplate the possibility of a change of career and so in 2014,he decided to give up his role as sergeant and moved to West Yorkshire in pursuit of a more affordable lifestyle with greater and easier access to the countryside, which he felt was important both for his future plans and for his own wellbeing and that of his young family. During the next four years, he set about building up his photography into a business that was viable enough to support his family.  A large part of the early success of his business was building up his YouTube channel, First Man Photography, to the point where he was reaching tens of thousands of people every week with his videos. These videos started off as tutorials but very quickly developed into a sharing of his experiences, his love of the outdoors and landscape photography, and in fostering that love in other people. As of March 2022 the First Man Photography YouTube Channel had almost 150k subscribers, over 250k views a month and 1.5 million minutes watched per month. What sets Adam apart is the philosophy on life and on mental wellbeing that he weaves into much of his commentary and his work.  He is a storyteller, crafting his journeys through the landscape into meaningful and fulfilling experiences which he shares with others through both his finished artworks and his films. Above all else Adam’s passion and enthusiasm for photography is infectious and he works tirelessly to encourage a love of the landscape and nature in others.  His skill set is wide and covers a broad spectrum but at the core of everything he does is the desire to tell stories, lift up those around him, take on challenges and inspire a diverse following to explore the art of photography, adventure and the human condition.     We discuss how his career and motivations have developed, his passion for seeking out the stories behind his work, the work he has done  to educate himself about how the economy and energy sector works and how that relates to the current trend around NFT’s and why he won’t sell his work as NFT’s  along with a lot more! I hope you enjoy the show! You can find Adam's work here: Website: YouTube: Instagram: Facebook: Twitter:   Theme music: Liturgy Of The Street by Shane Ivers -   #podcast #landscapephotography

 Ep 35 - Izzy Abuleela | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:28:50

This week I'm talking to Izzy Abuleela about his stunning extra long exposures as well as some interesting experiences he’s had along the way. Izzy likes to say that he’s just a normal guy with a passion for photography.  But he’s much more than that. He can't help but rise before sunrise and head out into the dark, camera in hand, looking to capture the landscape in the pre-dawn gloom. He  shoots exclusively with the Fuji Medium Format digital system. Specialising in the practice of long exposure,  Izzy captures the often unseen beauty by the art of simplification, presenting a unique view of the world where time is expressed in physical form. Originally from Liverpool in the UK and now living in Australia. Izzy is dedicated to exploring sharing iconic and lesser known locations around his local area and across Australia.  He runs a popular YouTube channel where he shares his journey, approach and camera techniques and by doing so connect and learn from the viewer through comments and suggestions.

 Ep 34 - Courtney Clark | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:15:36

This time I’ll be talking to Courtney Clark or Courts Jay as she is known online,  about her photography journey and how it has shaped her relationship with the world. Courts is a West Australian based Travel & Adventure photographer who shoots landscapes, architecture & portraits. A qualified and practising Engineer and a strong advocate for Inclusion & Diversity. Her photographic style is bold & colourful, and incorporates elements of symmetry and scale.  We discuss how she has continued to develop that style over time, with a focus on bright colours and contrasting elements.  In 2017, She lost her father suddenly and a close friend 2 months later. These events made Courtney question what she values in life and completely changed her perspective on a lot of things. It made her realise how short and fragile life is, and has chosen to make the most of every opportunity she gets to travel since.  Photography to Courtney is not only a passion, but it is a way for her to keep the connection alive with her Father.   We discuss her work and how that shapes her photography, her adventures in the Italian Alps and how the pandemic has affected her relationships and provided an impetus to dive headlong into the NFT photography scene. I hope you enjoy the show!   You can find Courts work here: LinkTree:     Theme music: Liturgy Of The Street by Shane Ivers -   #podcast #landscapephotography

 Ep 33 - Kieran Stone | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:14:34

Kieran Stone joins the podcast to talk about  his work and motivations along with a  range of other topics I hope you’ll find interesting. Kieran’s photography career started when he moved to London a while back and started to document his travels around Europe.  On his return to Melbourne as a biomedical scientist, he started to get more serious about progressing his photography and spent a lot of time working on his brand and skills and promoting his work via social media. If he could sum up his life in one word it would be “Curiosity” Ever since he was a child he has been interested in the world around him and the Universe as a whole. Wondering at the millions of years that went into creating coastline or mountains was much more appealing to him than the ever changing focus of media and entertainment. This wonder and curiosity combined with wanderlust to see all that he could has brought with it an inevitable desire to capture the world through photography. The more places he visited, the more cultures he came to understand, drove his passion to create images that portrayed the splendour and the raw emotion it evoked. Kieran’s photography is an expression of his thoughts and philosophies. It is a description and physical representation of his life as a passage through time and development as a Human. He endeavours to never stop learning, whether it is in photography, science, his own personality, or existence as a whole.

 Ep32 - Talor Stone | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:25:20

In this episode I'm talking to Talor Stone about her photography journey and an exciting new project she’s started. Talor Stone is a PhD researcher and photographer based in Pensacola, Florida.  After serving as a federal agent for the United States military, Talor broke from the traditional career path to pursue photography.   As an Arctic specialist, Talor has spent a significant amount of time exploring the northern region.  Her summers in Greenland have inspired numerous academic research projects on topics like globalization and indigenous identity, mass tourism and peripheral communities, and climate-induced human migration among Inuit populations.  These themes are echoed in her photographic pursuits which focus heavily on Arctic landscapes and other climate change-inspired projects that allow her to visually explore the real-life aspects of her academic subjects.   To further this mission, in 2022-2023 Talor is partnering with filmmaker Ashlei Payne to produce a documentary about the modern changes of hunting culture in northern Greenland based on more than 4 years of academic research.   Talor’s work is about more than photography.  Her images merge science and art to highlight themes of transition and fragility and to emotionally connect viewers to places few will ever visit.  Her hope is to raise awareness that climate-threatened landscapes are more than data points, charts, and statistics – they’re living places that deserve to be protected in their own right. In her role as an educator, Talor considers it a priority to enhance awareness and appreciation of the natural world through speaking engagements and hands-on education.  Her photography workshops focus on introducing others to these magical and remote places and creating a deeper understanding of the environment while also learning new technical skills.  Talor is proud to be a Pro with Muench Workshops who offer incredible and immersive photography experiences worldwide.

This episode I’m talking to Julian Lallo about  his work, NFT’s and a range of other topics I hope you’ll find interesting. When first picking up the camera in 2015 photography was for Julian  nothing more than a hobby - an excuse to hang out with friends and take photos of their sneakers. But it very quickly progressed to something much more than that. It became an obsession; an obsession which led Julian to experiment with all genres of the craft. From street photography and landscapes to portraiture and food. Through the power of social media his work was soon recognised by both brands and the photography community alike. Gaining work with recognised brands, in international tourism and an ambassador  for Canon Australia. As his interests have shifted, so too has Julian’s main focus and passion in photography; a shift towards fashion photography. A direction that is off to a great start, having involved campaigns both locally and internationally, with clients such as New Balance, Nana Judy, Intimo, Seafolly and George & King However, through the ever evolving journey of his career as a photographer one thing has remained the same… It still doesn’t feel like work!

 Ep 30 - Jeff Freestone | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:01:04

This episode I'm joined by Jeff Freestone to talk about his stunning intimate landscapes in the high country of south eastern Australia. Jeff lives in the small remote town of Omeo, nestled in the heart of the Victorian High Country. He and his family moved here in 2017 from Melbourne seeking a quieter life, away from the hustle and bustle, to raise their children.  What started out as a new hobby quickly turned into something that would soon consume all of Jeff’s free time and resulted in a desire to learn as much as he could about the art of photography. His previous love for art and creativity, which had been lost for many years during during his time chasing money and status, would eventually return in the form of photography and would ultimately become his new tool for artistic expression. We discuss how he and his family came to make the decision to give up city life for a quieter existence, how the high country has influenced his artistic direction and his passion for intimate forest scenes and much more..  I hope you enjoy the show!   You can find Jeff's work here: Website: Instagram: Facebook: Twitter:   Theme music: Liturgy Of The Street by Shane Ivers -     #landscapephotographyworldpodcast #landscapephotographyworld #landscapephotography #landscape #photography #world #podcast
