Welcome to episode 236 of F-Stop Collaborate and Listen!
This week on the podcast I was joined by Talor Stone - 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. In this episode, Talor starts off by sharing a very personal and emotional story about her start as a photographer, and I am so thankful she opened up and shared that with us, as it really provides excellent context and inspiration.
On the podcast this week, we also discuss:
How to break into the field as a full-time professional,

Talor's research on climate change,
