Providing photographers a platform through which they can converse with one of their heroes is something I have wanted to try on my podcast for a long time.
Other artists can inspire us to become better photographers and to take risks with our work. Such is the case in our first installation of the "Artists Asking Artists" series of the "F-Stop Collaborate and Listen" Podcast.
This week, I invited Hans Strand back onto the show and I gave photographer Eric Bennett the opportunity to ask Hans any questions he wanted. I hope that you find this format interesting, as I hope to do more of these in the future. Please do let us know! Check out the full show notes, chock full of amazing images from both Hans and Eric!
On this week's episode, Eric asks Hans some great questions about his career, his photographic journey, his approach to making images, and a ton more. Topics include:
How the craft has changed since Hans started in the field,
Hans' approach to composition,
Hans' approach to making aerial images,
Advice for other photographers looking to go full-time,
The value of critique,
and a LOT more!
Other topics discussed on the podcast this week:
Eric's critique groups.
Eric's tutorial and video series on Composition and Utilizing Light.
Hans' new book, Beyond Landscape.
Eric's book, Conversations with Nature.
Enter the Natural Landscape Photography Awards.
