Welcome to episode 246 of F-Stop Collaborate and Listen with your host Matt Payne.
This week on the podcast I was joined by Kurt Budliger - a full-time professional photographer from Vermont. I've had the pleasure of knowing Kurt for several years and have always admired his photography, positive attitude, and work ethic. Kurt and I had a fantastic chat on the podcast this week discussing his journey, how he balances full-time landscape photography with family life, and how his experience as an outdoor environmental educator has impacted his career in photography.
On this week's episode we discuss:
Kurt's journey into photography coming from the world of outdoor environmental education and a middle school teacher,
Knowing about the landscape and how it enhances our photographs,
Balancing work and family as a full-time landscape photographer,
Kurt's love affair with trees,
Staying creative in a world of iconic images and homogeneity,
And a lot more!
Over on Patreon this week, Kurt and I discuss why it is important to go outside of our comfort zones and what that looks like.
Here's who Kurt recommended for the podcast this week:
