    AI is Ruining YOUR Photography... For ME

    AI is Ruining YOUR Photography... For ME

    I'm going to weigh into the area of AI photography and, maybe more so, AI generated photography. On this episode, I talk about how it's sort of ruined my feelings about photography. Also I dive into the legality of AI generated photography and talk about some other related topics.

    Some of the links I mentioned in the photography podcast are:

    A Series of Unfortunate Events in Venezuela

    A Series of Unfortunate Events in Venezuela

    This was one of the wildest 6 days of my life. I spent 5 nights sleeping on buses. I didn't change my clothes, and I must have smelled horribly. I travelled all the way from Annai, Guyana to Medellin, Colombia via Venezuela over 6 days without sleeping in a bed.

    I hitchhiked with some less-than-ideal members of Venezuelan society. I got stuck in Caracas. And I just had a bunch of weird things happen.

    This is the story of that series of unfortunate events in Venezuela.

    4 Mistakes Landscape Photographers Make

    4 Mistakes Landscape Photographers Make

    So, no storytelling today, just photography.

    I just got back from Patagonia, and I had an awesome time. We made lots of great photos, and had some really special moments. But, I did spot a lot of photographers making mistakes. In fact, I think that this is the first time I've been around so many other photographers in awhile, and I was definitely more aware.

    On today's episode, then, I'm going to walk through 4 mistakes landscape photographers make.

    TOTALLY Broke in Suriname

    TOTALLY Broke in Suriname

    Back in 2011 I arrived in Suriname. This is the story about how I got there, and the series of misadventures that led to me being totally broke.

    I slept on the beach because I couldn't afford a hotel. I snuck food from hostel fridges. I did all I could to survive the simple fact that I just didn't have any money what-so-ever.

    How I Accidentally Became a Travel Photographer

    How I Accidentally Became a Travel Photographer

    I became a travel photographer almost on accident. I had the goal of travelling, and I was following the mantra of "find what you love doing, and then find out how to make money that way." I loved travel, and be it leading tours, writing, driving tour buses, or taking photos I was going to travel for a living no matter what.

    This is the story about how I accidentally became a travel photographer.

    Trailer - Travel, Photography & Life with Brendan van Son

    Travel photography is a career I sort of fell into. Along there way, there were countless stories. On this podcast, I'm going to focus on the stories that brought me to where I am today. Whether it's being broke and sleeping on beaches in Brazil, or nearly dying in the Congo, or travelling all of Africa on a scooter, these are the stories way behind the photos.
