When I started this series, I underestimated the variety of backstories the artists would share about their favorite images. I also never thought about their wisdom and insight, or their passion for the craft with each click of the shutter.
Gareth Rockliffe is in the "Why?" spotlight today. He's a perfect example of what makes this industry so much fun: the friendships that come along because of our mutual love for everything under the imaging umbrella.
I met Gareth thanks to his submission of a slideshow he put together for a Photodex/SCU contest and won. Later we did a Photodex "Building Your Business" segment and shared Gareth's video trailer for his "Great American Coastline" project. He's a remarkable artist who makes it very clear, with every image he captures, "photography isn't just a job, it's a way of life."

Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
