We recently found this article at the Matador Network website: 17 female travel photographers who slayed 2017 and it got us thinking that we should have more women on the show. I know we always strive to be as inclusive as possible, but sometimes it’s hard to think of female photographers in an industry that is very much male-dominated, so we were more than happy to have so many names to pick potential guests from. By the way, the list was compiled by our good friend and past guest, Kate Siobhan Mulligan, so thank you Kate!
Anyway, we found some names on that list that we hadn’t heard of previously and discovered some great work and fascinating insights into the world of travel photography by looking at their websites, so we started sending out invites to some of them and this is how we got to know our guest of this week, Taylor Roades.
Taylor is a self taught travel photographer based in Vancouver British Columbia; originally from Toronto, ON. Photography has taken her across Asia, and South America. She says she’s lugged too much gear through the Rocky Mountains, Patagonia, and the SubArctic.
Travel is what is what sparked her interest in photography, but it is telling stories of conservation, people, adventure, and culture that keeps her interested.
She works on a variety of editorial, commercial and reportage style assignments with companies and organizations that share a vision for sustainability and an appreciation for story.
