In this episode, Curtis tells us about his initial experiences in expedition and adventure photography. From this more documentary approach, he has evolved into an artist, teacher and guide. Modern life with its electronic devices can make it hard to achieve a deep connection with nature and Curtis shares his own struggles with this as well as his hope that he can help others to connect with the locations he takes them to.

The podcast delves deep into the emotional elements of Curtis’s work, giving listeners an insight into the sense of satisfaction derived from capturing ever-evolving scenes. The remote, sometimes harsh locations have a profound impact on Curtis as well as opening up opportunities for extraordinary images. Through Curtis you can experience the joys, the anxieties, and the liberating aspects of being an outdoor photographer. 

Joe & Curtis explore the difference it can make when photographers connect more with the location and why various “rules” and traditions of landscape photography can limit your art. They also discuss the different levels of enjoyment to be gained when sharing the locations that have refuelled them as introverts with groups of photographers and explorers. Whether you are an aspiring photographer or simply a nature enthusiast, this episode offers a very personal perspective on outdoor photography and the art of being ‘in the moment’.
