The images posted above are selected from a single “filmstrip” so to speak…portraits made both directly and candidly over drinks in Philadelphia. Mike and I are photographers of a similar mindset and exchange our ideas, knowledge regularly- via email, phone calls and every so often over drinks.
Our friendship began in Wyoming a number of years ago. We met while taking in a workshop under the excellent council of Jodi Cobb, William Albert Allard, James Hill and David Alan Harvey who were among the many talented photojournalist and magazine editors involved in the Photography Summit.
Mike and I work towards similar goals with similar approach, and our collective ideas yield far greater results then those met alone. With this I can only encourage anyone in photography or journalism to find a few others who share your talent and passion, build those relationships and seek out knowledge together!
