Photographic Philosophy   Podcast
Episode 011 – Echo Widmer

Photographer, videographer, painter, writer, climber, skydiver, slackliner, surfer, kite surfer, yoga teacher, paraglider and all around good human Echo Widmer has one amazing story to tell. Born into less than Ideal circumstances in a place called Cut and Shoot (nope, that is not a joke) Texas, Echo literally picked herself up by her own shoelaces. Through study and hard work she put herself through university and into a placement at one of Texas best law firms only to realise that the corporate life was not something that she could squeeze into.


So, began a life of creativity and adventure that she has crafted into a free-flowing journey that allows her to work in multiple countries around the world and enjoy all the adventures she can stuff into one life. From snowboarding in Japan to paragliding in New Zealand I met Echo on a kitesurfing trip in Sri Lanka where coincidently we found out we had some mutual friends. Stories were told over dinner one night and a few days later after looking through her creative work I decided Echo would be a great fit for this podcast. Enjoy the conversation and be inspired by the person that is Echo Giesel Widmer.

    Awesome podcast. Sincerely great stuff. Could have listened to it for hours. Especially loved the story about her Mum and deciding not to be a victim anymore. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Just heard this podcast with Echo. First time I hear a podcast with someone that I’ve had on my own podcast so it was cool to hear your take on her. Since your podcast focuses on photography you dove deep into her creative process and I don’t even think I touched on that. Good stuff! Boosh!
