A polymath (Greek: πολυμαθής, polymathēs, "having learned much") is a person whose expertise spans a significant number of different subject areas. We definitely don't justify expertise, but we do have a wide and diverse field of... intrigue!

After numerous conversations with good friend of mine and author, Ashley Kalym, we finally got down to recording some of them. 

Polymaths is a show where we chat about and discuss anything and everything that we find interesting or fascinating. Over the episodes, we've covered sciences and space, writing, photography, archery and what calculus means in Latin.

We hope you enjoy listening!

Polymaths - Episode 26. Ryan HK Interview

Welcome to Polymaths Episode 26 and the first of a new format where I interview some of the incredible, creative and inspirational people I know and to find out about their habits, drives and inspirations. 

In this episode I talk to Calgary based photo and videographer Ryan HK and we talk about where and how he started his photography journey, what role avalanche investigation played in it and how to make the perfect sheath for your hunting knife. 

As a first interview I'm very excited as to how it went and have some personal critiques to work on for the following interviews, first and foremost a better audio quality. I'm keeping post production simple on these so as to minimise the time they take but a better audio setup is going to be very simple to implement.

Look up Ryan on Facebook: Ryan HK Photographer.


Ryan mentions the first photographer he assisted, Noah Fallis and you can check out his work here.
