Some people explore the world right and left, north and south. Others, like my guest for this episode, Erin Babnik, prefer to explore it by going up and down and by climbing the peaks of the Alps or of the Californian Sierras to capture some amazing photographs of the high mountains.
Erin is a full-time landscape photographer, writer, and educator based out of California and Slovenia. She teaches photography workshops worldwide and shares her ideas about photography through articles for popular photography publications and through public speaking engagements. Her dedication to the medium of photography evolved out of her years working as an art historian, photographing at archaeological sites and in museums throughout Europe and the Middle East for the purposes of teaching and research. She subsequently spent years producing photographs on assignment and for licensing, all the while expanding her personal photographic excursions to increasingly remote outdoor locations. Erin draws upon her background in art history in bringing a deep knowledge of aesthetics, visual communication, and cultural relevancy to her own photographic work and to her writing. Her photographs have appeared in well over a hundred publications, including books, travel guides, magazines, newspapers, and television shows. Erin is also a member of the illustrious nature photography team Photo Cascadia.
We discussed with Erin what is important when considering mountain photography and what are the similarities and differences between the mountain regions of the New and of the Old World.
