Flying Tortuga Brothers Episode 5 - The Clyde Butcher Interview Part II

June 12, 2019

This week on the Flying Tortuga Brothers we present part II of our interview with Clyde Butcher recorded in his Venice, Florida Gallery on June 5th 2019.  We had a great time sitting down with Clyde to talk about photography, the Everglades, the National Parks and the environment.  The next episode of the podcast will be an interview Carl does on the road from the Pacific North West.  Where he will meet up with Photographer Shawn Moss who is on a 4 month photo adventure across the U.S. from coast to coast.  Carl will join Shawn in Portland, Oregon and they will explore coastal Oregon and Washington.  The interview will take place over several days of their journey and be uploaded at some point where an internet connection is available :-)  Thanks for listening!

Flying Tortuga Brothers Episode 4 - The Clyde Butcher Interview Part 1

June 6, 2019

This week the Tortuga Brothers (carl and Shannon) took a road trip across Florida to visit and chat with legendary landscape photographer Clyde Butcher.  Clyde was so generous with hi time and his wisdom that the interview was over an hour long.  We decided to split the interview up into two episodes.  This is part one and part two will be published on Thursday 6/13.  It was a distinct honor to be able to interview Clyde whose landscape photography and stewardship of the Everglades makes him tops in our book!  In fact when we decided to start interviewing artists associated with the National Parks we never imagined we would get Clyde as our inaugural interview!  He set the bar very high on how we want our other interviews to go.

Thanks for listening!

Florida artists Shannon Torrence and Carl Stoveland teamed up to apply for an artist residency in September 2019 on Loggerhead Key in the Dry Tortugas.  Alas their last minute application was not selected, but they were not deterred and instead decided to create a social media campaign including this podcast and a blog to document the work we are doing, the steps going into the application and eventually life off the grid on Loggerhead Key.

The podcast will be posted every two weeks and will feature interviews with artists who have done this residency in the past.
