Casually beginning my Monday with a latte and Sunrise Earth on the TV, I received a call from the New York Times in regards to a photoshoot in the coming days. As I have enjoyed working with them in the past, I agreed and learned that the photograph would be of the Honorable Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.
Like many, if not all, other photographers, I enjoy the the vast amount of avenues in our medium. Be it photojournalism, table top, macro, etc., I really appreciate what so many other photographers do, and celebrate their successes as much as my own.
Of all the gifts and opportunities that we as photographers will experience through our careers, none are more important than the opportunity to help someone else out. From teaching others your craft to using your talent to enrich someone else’s life, there is no downside to giving back.
If you recall a blog from earlier this year, I mentioned my joy and surprise at being selected into the Comm Arts Photo Annual, a collection of images that I always wanted to have my work be worthy of joining.
Firstly, I want to thank those that sent over emails or messaged me on FB and Twitter about the new ASU campaign. It was a ton of fun to produce, and when my readers enjoy the shots, it is icing on the cake.
