Hang out with your host Chris Koehn, a former news photographer who turned to landscapes, as he talks with professional photographers about what it takes to capture compelling images.
Joe Chowaniec on how photographing abandoned buildings landed him a book deal
My guest almost deleted his opportunity to publish a Canadian best seller when an agent inquired about his work featuring old barns and other ruins scattered throughout Alberta, Canada.
Photographer Joe Chowaniec was convinced the agent's email was a scam, so like any sensible person he ignored it. It wasn't until months later that he ended up speaking to the publisher and began work on what would become "Abandoned Alberta."
Adam Gibbs on medium format landscape photography, drones, and YouTube
I had a chance to talk with landscape photographer Adam Gibbs who, fresh off a trip to the Canadian Rockies, spoke about his recent shift to medium format digital, his popular YouTube channel, and his latest book, “Quiet Light” now in its second printing.
Ever the agreeable chap, Adam and I chatted for well over an hour about shooting medium format film for magazines, and whether or not he's considering a return to analog after showing off his old film gear bag in a recent YouTube video.
Nicolas Lefaudeux - 2020 Astrophotographer of the Year
In this episode of the Image File, I talk with the Royal Observatory Greenwich’s Insight Investment Astronomy Photographer of the year 2020, Nicolas Lefaudeux. His award winning tilt-perspective image of the Andromeda Galaxy will no doubt make the rest of us wonder, “why didn’t I think of that?”
Nicolas is a French optical engineer and amateur astrophotographer who built his own telescope as a teenager and devised a simple, yet effective, tilt adapter that allowed him to capture his winning image
Interview with Olympus Visionary and adventure filmmaker Chris Eyre-Walker
In this episode of the Image File I go back to earlier this year when I spoke with Olympus Visionary and adventure filmmaker Chris Eyre-Walker. I had intended to release this earlier in the year but 2020 kinda derailed things for everyone.
Chris was in New York before the world shut down and I managed to talk to him about how he got his start as a pro photographer and developed a relationship with Olympus. His insight will help anyone with a quality portfolio who might want to work with brands.
Interview with Canon Explorer of Light Erin Babnik
In this inaugural episode of the Image File I'm checking in with the immensely talented landscape photographer Erin Babnik, who earlier this year was named a Canon Explorer of Light.
Erin is normally on the road 300 days of the year and earns part of her living through her popular photography workshops. The pandemic has created new challenges for her business and we talk about getting through tough times creatively and improving your photography.
