Matt Payne Discusses Nature First, When to Share Shooting Locations

Nature First co-founder Matt Payne joins Chris to discuss the origins of the alliance, its principles, and to debate whether photographers should share shooting locations.

Preserving nature is important to Matt and many other photographers, so he shares the questions you should ask yourself when you’re thinking about giving someone else a shooting location. He also provides specific examples of locations that’ve been negatively affected by visitors.

Later, Matt discusses how he finds his own unique shots to differentiate himself as a photographer, what motivates him to shoot, and what he’s learned from his own podcast, F-Stop Collaborate and Listen.

Matt will be at all of Out of Chicago’s 2020 landscape photography events to offer guidance and lead discussions. Until then, you can find him at and on Instagram.
