Episode 54. Matt Payne: Richard and Matt’s Wild Ride Across The Drake Passage

Matt Payne on Beyond The Lens Podcast

This episode was recorded with my friend, Matt Payne as we made a wild crossing of the Drake Passage last month.  We were returning to Ushuaia, Argentina after a 21-day voyage to Antarctica where we encountered amazing scenery and wildlife, including the “impossible” emperor penguin on ice flows in the Weddell Sea.

This was an unscripted, unstructured conversation where we essentially interviewed each other. I was fighting seasickness and basically doing my best to stay upright during the conversation. It was a rollicking good time and a fun listen.

Matt Payne is a mountain climber and fine art nature and landscape photographer living in Durango, Colorado, as well as a fellow Muench Workshops pro.

Topics includes:

  • Stories from Antarctica
  • Seasickness and getting sick
  • The Avalanche
  • How does exhaustion effect creativity?
  • Matt’s epic Colorado Trail thru-hike
  • Discussion on photography workshops
  • Introverts and extroverts
  • Additional skills needed to be a photography pro
  • Learning composition

And more…
