When I started "Why?" I had no idea the fun I'd have in working with each artist, and today is a perfect example. For many years I've talked about the best thing about the photographic industry, and it has nothing to do with images directly. It's the friendships that come out of everyone's love for the craft.
My good pal Tom Curley is in the spotlight today. Tom and I met at least twenty years ago in previous "lives." Since that first meeting we've worked together on dozens of different projects, trade shows and conventions. Tom's key role in the industry today is the leadership for Panasonic's Luminary Team, a group of incredibly diverse and talented professional photographers.
While he's not a working professional photographer, I'll match his enthusiasm, passion and love for the craft against anybody in the industry! In fact, the image he's sharing on "Why?" today is a perfect example. Click on the image above to see more of Tom's work.
Panasonic's tagline is "Changing Photography," and it's thanks to Tom and the Luminary Team, my own passion for imaging is revitalized almost every day. I'm never without a camera and Panasonic's technology in every LUMIX camera keeps pushing me to expand the boundaires of my own creative envelope.
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.
