The Traveling Image Makers
About This Show
Travel photography is all about the people, the food, the architecture, and the culture that make each place a special one. It mixes elements of landscape photography, portraiture and reportage and aims to combine all of these and paint a compelling picture of what it's like to live in a foreign country.
Every week we interview a photographer or we host a roundtable discussion on all aspects of travel photography: from planning to scouting locations, from security and the economics of traveling, to how we can travel responsibly and sustainably, with tips about the best equipment, how to interact with people and how to pack light and efficiently.
We will share the inspiring work of masters and amateurs and discover what compels them to travel many hours and cross many borders to get THE shots.

TTIM 119 – Matt Widgery on Addiction and Greece
Our guest for this edition of the podcast is British travel photographer Matt Widgery.Besides being a good sport and someone who’s always fun to be around, Matt has a lot of interesting stories to share, starting with the way photography saved him from an alcohol addiction, as he says in his about page:“Photography basically saved my life. I had a long addiction to alcohol and it nearly destroyed me. But I don’t say this to get sympathy. Today I get to travel all over the world, shooting and teaching in some of the best locations on Earth. I shot in 16 countries last year! My life is beyond amazing and I am so thankful that I was able to discover my passion and use it to create the life I always wanted. The only way I know how to express this gratitude is to pay it forward. Teaching others the skills that gave me this incredible life is such a privilege.”We also talked with Matt about the country he recently discovered and started loving so much, Greece.
