Matt’s Podcast – F-Stop Collaborate and Listen

We begin by talking about his podcast F-Stop Collaborate & Listen. If you have never heard of his podcast or have been considering listening to it, this is your chance to hear from the creator yourself about what makes his podcast different, interesting, and why I definitely recommend it. It’s a great way to feel like you are hanging out with some of your favorite Landscape Photographers.

Switching Cameras?

As we start getting into the Mountaineering Photography discussion, I check if he made the leap to a smaller camera body mirrorless system. He has as expected from someone paying attention to every pound in his bag. I am able to play the devil’s advocate and get some really candid feedback from a guy who switched from Nikon to Sony and what the cons are, if any, to the Sony mirrorless options out there.

Matt’s Gear Weight Calculator

Matt’s why he chose Sony article & weight spreadsheet: https://www.mattpaynephotography.com/choosing-sony-full-frame-camera-equipment-for-backpacking-and-weight-calculation-tool

Then we hear about Matt’s Photography process, how he approaches his compositions as well as some inspiring advice on how we all can benefit from changing our perspective and expectations when going out to do photography so that we can get the most out of the experience. And keep the motivation to keep on keeping on!

Head to the Mountains for Adventure!

To round out the podcast, Matt shares with us some mountaineering adventures and words of caution for those of you considering more hiking and mountaineering photography in your future!
