Episode 040 of F-Stop Collaborate and Listen with England-based landscape photographer Alex Nail! I've been a huge fan of Alex's photography for quite a long time! Alex is also a mountain guy and takes images from hard to reach places that are absolutely inspiring. I first stumbled onto Alex's work when I was a guest editor over on 500px and immediately made one of his photos an editor's choice! Alex is one of the most down-to-earth artists I've spoken to and just oozes authenticity. We had such a great conversation (one of my favorites).
Alex and I covered some great topics this week, including:
Special announcements: Please consider supporting the podcast on Patreon! Let’s keep the conversations going! I recently set a goal of $1,000 in monthly contributions which I will use to seed a $1,000 landscape conversation award. This will only be possible if people contribute on Patreon!
Additionally, we have collaborated with The League Magazine.
$50 supporters of the podcast on Patreon will get you a free subscription to The League if you sign up on Patreon between now and the end of February, 2018. The League subscription would normally cost you $50, so basically you are getting it for free while supporting the podcast!
Supporters already at the $50 level will get the subscription too!
League is an annual collectors’ compendium of unique, thoughtful photographic art comprised primarily of work from the League of Landscape Photographers. Two key principles underpin the publication: contributors espouse a mindful, ethical code of behavior in creating photographic work; and contributors wrestle with or promote dialogue about contemporary issues facing humans and the landscape.
Lastly, I am happy to announce that I'm now a Formatt-Hitech filter ambassador. Listeners to the podcast get 10% off their order if they use the code "PAYNE10" - thanks for supporting the podcast!
