Redwoods, ferns, and rhododendrons near the northern California coast, USA

A few months ago I had the pleasure of talking with Tiffany Briley from Landscape Photography Magazine, and that interview has just been published in the latest issue. Our conversation covered a wide range of subjects, including the importance of light, predicting the weather, sources of inspiration, image processing, and equipment – among many other things.

Landscape Photography Magazine is available through subscription or by purchasing a single copy (£4.50). I hope you enjoy the interview!

P.S. This photograph of redwoods is one of the images that accompanies the interview. I made this one back in 2011, but it may still be my favorite redwood photograph.
