This week’s guest is Patrick Monahan who has gone from a successful career in the high tech industry to traveling the world and now leading tours. In this episode, Ralph sits down with Patrick on a huge rock overlooking Mexico’s Copper Canyon to discuss his travel and photography experience, and specifically how to see and photograph this fascinating part of the world (did you know that Copper Canyon is bigger and deeper than the Grand Canyon? And it has one of the great train rides of the world running right through it, the only passenger train in all of Mexico).
Ralph and Patrick also discuss meeting and photographing the Tarahumara Indians, a truly incredible culture where many still live in caves and cliff overhangs until this day. A shy people open to being photographed but not prone to smiling for the camera, the Tarahumara ladies are humble and talented craftswomen and almost all dress in handmade flower print dresses with colorful bandanas on their head.
Patrick gives us some of his best photography tips and talks in-depth about his extensive travels and the opportunities he’s had to photograph all over the world.
