On to the Most Hilarious & Inspiring Stories

After gushing about Jeff’s awesome Oregon Waterfall Image, we get into a highlight reel of our fun Patron Only Podcasts we have on Mondays. We feature some hilarious and / or inspiring stories from Alyn Wallace, Gavin Hardcastle, Enrico Fossati, Matt Payne, and Joshua Cripps, in that order!

Alyn Wallace

Starting off with Alyn Wallace, and without spoiling anything, he put a Yoga Instructor at risk, found out he wasn’t alone in a swamp at 3am, and what came after him wasn’t even an animal! Alyn tells us the awesome story behind a photo on his blog. It’s about a Mark Gee-Like Moon shoot:…i-ever-took

Enrico Fossati

We continue on with Enrico Fossati as he shares with us a story of a crazy weather day. After he seeks refuge from thunder and lightning, he finds himself in a position to capture his most famous image. A shot inspired by his love of the Lord of the Rings city of Rivendell.

Matt Payne

After Enrico’s Dolomite story, we stay in the mountains with MATT PAYNE as he shares with us some mountaineering adventures and words of caution for those of you considering more hiking and mountaineering photography in your future!

Joshua Cripps

For the finale, we share with you our favorite! It’s a completely nuts story that comes from JOSHUA CRIPPS. Let’s just say that there are tiny ponies involved in a decision only 20-year-olds would think to do. Oh to be 20-something again!
