TTIM 146 – Matt Brandon and Pete DeMarco in Malaysia

This week’s episode is a special one. It was recorded on location by Ugo in Penang, Malaysia, where he had the pleasure to meet face-to-face with two great friends and previous guests on the show: Matt Brandon and Pete DeMarco.

Matt, Pete, and Ugo had a long conversation about Penang and why it is such a great destination for photographers. The capital of the state of Penang, George Town, has a well preserved center that is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site and is also situated in a position that makes it easy to reach other great cities like Bangkok, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, and sites like Angkor in Cambodia.

Singapore, the Multicultural

Before visiting Singapore, I had this picture in my mind of a modern, very orderly and clean city, like a small Switzerland at the equator. I also came prepared to see and photograph some stunning futuristic architecture.

Of course, Singapore is all of that but, as I discovered, it is also much more.

TTIM 143 – Maria Vazquez and Pastel Moods

Our guest for this week’s episode of the podcast is Maria (or Marioly) Vazquez.

We came to hear of Maria via another guest of ours, Scott Kelby, who mentioned her during his interview. We were talking about style in photography and not even knowing her, Scott brought up Maria’s Instagram (@cestmaria) as a perfect example of a photographer who has developed a distinctive style. Not too bad when one of the world’s top photographers and educators gushes about your work!

Maria’s style is not just about photographing one type of subject and post-processing it a certain way, it’s about a very distinct color palette that crosses any number of photographic genres, from food to architecture, and selfies to fashion, and beyond.

TTIM 142 – Dancho Hristov, Bulgaria, and Birds

For the past 5 years, Dancho Hristov has been a working landscape and wildlife photographer based in Sofia, Bulgaria. He first dabbled in photography at the age of 13, starting with an old Zenit film camera. Several years later his interest in wildlife, and in particular birds, led him to his first digital camera, and this is when the adventure began in earnest. For the past 10 years, Dancho has been travelling extensively, mainly throughout Europe, guiding photographers, participating in bird surveys and continuing to explore nature.

Dancho is also the author of the SNAPP Guides to photographing Bulgaria and has received a number of awards in regional landscape and wildlife photography contests. Additionally he plans trips and guides groups in his home country.

Enjoy this very interesting conversation as he discusses with +Ralph Velasco everything from what there is to see and do in Bulgaria to the importance of behavior, gear and “hiding out” to capture the best bird and wildlife photography.

TTIM 141 – Dennis Valverde and Costa Rica

During his latest trip to the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica, Ralph sat down with naturalist guide, photographer, and native Costa Rican, Dennis Valverde.

He was always fascinated by the animals and the big trees that were around his grandparents’ forest. That interest encouraged him to study the biodiversity of the rainforest in a more formal way. Nowadays he has a 12-years experience as a professional naturalist guide.

Photography is Dennis’ second passion and his interest in it started 6 years ago as a result of his desire to capture the abundant wildlife that he sees every day that he goes out to lead tours.

TTIM 140 – Pia Parolin and Promenade Moments

Born and raised in Italy, Pia Parolin studied biology in Germany and in Brazilian Amazonia. A passionate tropical ecologist with PhD, she always carries her camera with her since the day her father gave her the first Minolta at the age of 9. Living on the French Riviera since 2005, she loves to capture light, colours and movements.

With her “Promenade Moments” series from 2017, captured on the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, she wanted to give back some colour and light to the victims of the 2016 terrorist attack by donating metal prints of her pictures to the associations Promenade des Anges, Hospital Lenval, and Habitat & Humanisme and with photography workshops.

Ugo and Ralph talked with Pia about her Promenade Moments series, but also about her recent experience in Borneo, living side by side with the natives in a longhouse.
