Quoted In Episodes
“I am just amazed by how much happier this makes me, by how excited I am about getting out there and photographing, by being able to add those layers of storytelling. I'm not trying to get that one perfect image, I am building that story.”
Student, Conservation Photography 101
“I've been totally blown away by the fact that there are people out there who have huge reputations but do not have the slightest idea of what a story is. They know how to make a set of pictures…but they can't frame it. It's just a pile of pictures that can be put in any order. And it's amazing how many very highly regarded photographers are out there who do not have a clue. They make pretty pictures they hang on a wall, but they don't go any further than that.”
Photo Editor, Ranger Rick Magazine
