“Twins” – sun breaking through fog in a redwood forest, northern California

A few weeks ago, before rafting down the Grand Canyon, I did an interview with Brenda Petrella for her Outdoor Photography Podcast. I thought Brenda asked a lot of great questions, and I really enjoyed the conversation. We talked about a wide range of topics, including light, my early photography career working at The Ansel Adams Gallery, the difference between style and vision, immersing yourself in nature, and so much more.

Brenda just released the podcast, so you can listen to it on her website, or through all the usual podcast sources like iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher, and so on. I hope you enjoy the interview!

And while you’re at it, check out some of Brenda’s other episodes. Her podcast is relatively new, but I think she’s doing a great job with it, and you might enjoy listening to some of her other interviews, with people like Erin Babnik, John Barclay, Jennifer Renwick, David Kingham, Sarah Marino, and many more. She also does a “Tidbit Tuesday” series, where she offers tips about various aspects of photography. Check out Episode 40, “The One Thing That Will Improve Your Photography This Year,” and Episode 50, “Photo Editing vs. Photo Manipulation: Is There a Limit?”
