At Notre Dame, the name “Matt Cashore” is synonymous with photography. His 20-plus years visually chronicling the University, its faculty, and its students have produced scores of unforgettable images captured both on and near campus and around the world.

In this episode, Matt talks about his experiences at Notre Dame—including how he got a now classic shot of the Golden Dome beneath a sky full of lightning—as well as photography more generally and his three tips for taking great photos. Which later become five. Until he and host Ted Fox add a sixth. Did we mention Matt and Ted go back a ways?
