"Why?" is all about photographers and the backstories behind their favorite images. Often, as with today's story, the photograph is more than just the artist's favorite, it's an image that kicked off a journey into a new career.
William Innes joins me in this new episode, and it's always fun doing a podcast with somebody I've spent a lot of time working with. William is a Panasonic LUMIX Ambassador, and I've shared a lot of his images, as well as some of his Photodex slide shows. While his core specialty is wedding photography, he loves to travel, and over the years a lot of his images I've seen have been well outside the typical bridal category.
I appreciated the way he described how relentless his wife was in pushing him to share the photograph that started it all. So often we've chosen a path in our life thanks to a spouse, good friend or another family member. It's that encouragement and support that's so important in pursuing any dream!
I don't usually share additional images in these episodes, but while William's backstory is about the image above; I want to share one of my favorites from his galleries. It was captured with a LUMIX GH5 and 12-60mm F2.8-4.0 Leica lens.
