Conversation #4 With Martin Bailey About Sharing Our Passion For Photography


Sorry for the long stretch of time between posts. I've been traveling again! I always leave for a trip with the good intention of writing blog posts during the long flights but, truth is, I rarely open my laptop on a plane. I much prefer to lose myself in a good book.

I have a treat for you this week! I spent an hour chatting with my good friend and photographer extraordinaire Martin Bailey. We finally managed to find time in our busy schedules to sit down for an hour. I am just returning from Paris and soon heading down to Australia and he is about to leave for his Winter Wonderland photo tours. Martin is an amazing nature and wildlife photographer, a talented writer and a great guy! 

As my previous conversations for this blog, this is a candid chat between two photographers. Today Martin and I discuss how we've both come to a point in our careers where it's all about sharing our passion for the craft, mostly through teaching and writing. Martin is also the host of the popular Martin Bailey Photography Podcast which just reached 400 episodes. This is a huge accomplishment and I applaud him for that.
