If it wasn’t apparent in the recent article I wrote on the television show “The Newsroom,” let’s just say that I have a strong fear that we are letting technological advancements hurt our true quest for knowledge.
Many years ago I was visiting with Bill Stockland, an artist rep and friend of mine. We had toured his office and then found ourselves in the portfolio room where I looked over the work of Walter Iooss.
Perhaps it is the first realization in the many the lie ahead that we once lived in better times. Not too long ago we sailed a quest for knowledge, a quest that would end as the world of convenience took over.
It was the first shoot I ever went after. I made deals and fought hard to get my one chance to photograph Mythbusters. It was less about the photography and more about the opportunity to be a part of something that until that time I existed only as a viewer.
There will always be photoshoots that test your creativity, and sometimes there are campaigns that seem to just give you incredible images. Deadliest Catch is definitely a campaign that lends its had to stunning visuals… at the cost of your comfort.
