Our guest for this episode of the podcast is landscape photographer and podcaster Matt Payne.
Matt’s passion for the outdoors shines through in his stunning landscape and nightscape photography. He finds the most enchanting moments in which vibrant colors and lively motion overhead complement the stillness of the world below. Payne uses long exposures and composites to illuminate the dark night skies and to capture the motion of the stars in visually stunning compositions. His work encourages viewers to stop and take a moment to appreciate the natural wonders of our world in ways that can’t be captured with the naked eye.
“Through wilderness exploration I have developed a unique vision for the otherwise mundane in our day-to-day life,” explains Payne. “My hope is that my life-long passion for the wilderness and exploration will continue to bring me to some of the world’s most amazing places so I can continue to share my vision of those places with the world.”
Matt is obsessed and passionate about landscape photography. He began and refined his craft on the slopes of Colorado’s most difficult mountain climbs and has since honed his vision and skills and is working diligently to bring himself to new levels. In 2014, Matt moved to Portland, Oregon and enjoyed photographing all of the wonders that Oregon has to offer, including waterfalls, rain-forests, mountains, lakes and beaches. In late 2015, Matt moved back to Colorado to reside in the town of Durango at the base of Colorado’s most amazing mountains.
Recently, Matt started his own podcast, called F-Stop Collaborate and Listen, dedicated to interviewing the world’s best landscape photographers, discussing the passion and artistic enjoyment of the craft.
