When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs.
When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.
Texas photographer and good buddy, Doug Box is in the spotlight. You'll find Doug's approach to the backstory very different from many of the previous images shared. As one of the industry's leading educators, he hit the "Why?" question pretty hard, because it's the first question he typically asks his students. He goes beyond why they're choosing to create an image a certain way and instead, works to understand why they're working hard to be a photographer.
There's an excellent podcast I did with Doug on Weekend Wisdom. It's all about partnership marketing and he shares some outstanding insight.
Doug is somebody who needs to be in your network. You'll find out more about Doug with a click on his image, and if you're walking the floors of a convention and you see him walk by, make it a point to introduce yourself. You couldn't ask to have a better person on your "team."
