This new video from the Life In Focus series from F-Stop Gear tells the story of Brian Matiash, an urban and landscape photographer from Portland, Oregon. A departure from the usual mountain or expedition setting, it's cool to see a photographer who is working on the streets of a city and how he makes use of the rugged F-stop bags. Hear Brian discuss how he got into photography and what motivates him to shoot urban areas.
Brian Matiash is a Brooklyn, NY born shooter with a passion for HDR photography who now resides in Portland. He has always been passionate about photography, and now works for Google+ Photos as a Community Manager. During the shoot, you can see how Brian thrives in this sort of environment, with the sounds of the trains, the overcast light, urban feeling just seems to energize his creativity. Below are a few of his images (one from this shoot along with a few others).
