With landscape photographer Oddbjørn Austevik.
We have our first ever guest on this episode of the podcast and he’s a landscape photographer all the way from Norway! We announce the winners of the Bluey Merino competition and then we get stuck into what was a truly enjoyable conversation with a guy who’s enthusiasm for adventure and photography is something to be admired. He tells us about his passion for photography and adventure, what drives him to keep exploring, photography advice, how he came to be photographing the inside of a glacier, snowmobiles, polar bears, music, sun pillars, strike-worms and a whole lot more.
