Steve Dunwell – Drones, Harvard & Initiative

My name is Andrew Walmsley and your listening to episode 170 of photography insights. This is the show that interviews people from the photography world.

Today I’m bringing you a longer interview, it’s mainly because Steve articulates so well I didn’t want to remove much from our chat. Steve Dunwell was recommended by the lovely Lou Jones so naturally I had to look at his work. He comes from the Boston region of America too, but shoots aerial and architecture work. It’s a very different field to most and due to the nature of the work very different!

It’s really intriguing talking to someone who just hops on a plane or helicopter with someone after thinking about an idea. Sometimes it’s not about working for clients, but a project or picture he has in mind. Steve has many decades experience in the industry so seen a lot of changes and adopted these in his work. In the last 5 years he has used the DJI range of drones to further increase the style of work he can create.

So in this one we discuss:

  • point of view
  • specialising
  • working with clients
  • initiative
  • timing + seasons
  • competing
  • patterns
  • Harvard university
