This week’s episode is a special one. During the latest Out Of Chicago Summer Conference, Ugo was the moderator of a panel discussion about the State of Landscape Photography. The panelists were three very well-known landscape and outdoor photographers: Josh Cripps, Ian Plant, and Bill Fortney.
What ensued was a lively and, at times, humorous discussion about the joys and pains of being a professional landscape photographer, interspersed with reflections about the direction the industry is going: Are we seeing a resurgence of “natural” photography? Is it still possible to make a living doing outdoor photography? and more.
As the panel went on for about 90 minutes, we split the recording in two parts. This is the first part; the second one will be published next week.
Apologies for the audio quality, which is not at the usual level of quality. The microphones in front of the stage picked up a bit of background noise, but we think it’s still intelligible and the contents of the conversation, which are what really matters, are too good not to share.
We would also like to thank Chris Smith and the staff at Out Of Chicago for giving us the opportunity and the means to record this. If you’ve never been to Out Of Chicago, you should definitely attend it and we’ll certainly be there again next year.
Duration 53m 05s.
