About the Host

Brenda Petrella

Creator and Photographer

My goal is to help you create better images and reconnect with nature.

I created Outdoor Photography School and the Outdoor Photography Podcast to bridge the gap between the art and craft of photography and the outdoor skills that are needed to explore the natural world safely and comfortably.

On the Outdoor Photography Podcast, I interview top landscape and nature photographers and outdoor industry leaders to help you unleash your creative side while connecting with nature through your photography.

My job is to unpack their approaches to creativity and composition and to uncover key topics around safety in the outdoors, essential gear, and respect for nature.

Wherever you are in your journey as a landscape or nature photographer, you will eventually find yourself needing to acquire two sets of skills – that of a photographer, and that of an outdoors-person.

This podcast covers both of these topics in-depth so that you are comfortable and confident while creating in nature. Enjoy!
