James Rodewald - Inspiration | Our Nemesis | Meditation
Listen now
Welcome to episode 228 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast! This week on the podcast I was joined by James Rodewald. James is a photographer and science teacher residing in the State of New York. He started his photographic journey back in the early 1980s with a 35-mm film camera. Although his portfolio of film and digital work spans many years, one can see a few common themes emerge. One of those central themes is a long-term attempt to capture scenes of the natural world seemingly untouched by humanity: nature in its natural state. We discuss: Balancing art with a full-time career and parenthood Using meditation to help channel creativity on a busy schedule Finding ongoing inspiration in local subjects Finding ongoing inspiration while returning to frequented locations and or familiar subjects Your photographic nemesis -- Identifying what draws you to a subject but yet evades your ability to record or express it Supporting conservation efforts through photography Over on Patreon this week, James and I discuss our thoughts on overcoming burnout. Here's who James recommended for the podcast this week: Chris Murray Paulo Valdivia Eric Erleubeusch Saikat Chakraborty Karen Waller Marianthi Lainas Huibo Hou Ami Vitale Other items mentioned on the show: 1. Nature Photographer's Network Special Offer. 2. James Rodewald's Animal Abstracts Book. 3. Matt Payne's Private 1:1 Photography Workshops. 4. Charity Watch. 5. Charity Navigator. Support the show on Patreon.
