It's another classic profile from one of Tamron's Image Masters . This is an incredibly diverse group of artists. Well, it's Tamron Tuesday and it's time for more of you to meet Michael C. Snell. He's no stranger to SCU...he did a terrific guest post back in July on details in your travel photography that's well worth the read.
On the Image Masters site, Michael's description is a testimonial to an artist with a deep commitment to imaging.
"Michael C. Snell is a travel photographer based in Lawrence, Kansas. He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Visual Communications from the University of Kansas. After working as a designer and art director in the advertising and marketing industry for over 12 years, Michael left in 1997 to pursue a freelance career and to have more time and flexibility to build his travel photography business. Since then, he has had images published in a variety of travel publications including Travel+Leisure, Rough Guides, Fodor’s, Mobil Travel Guides, National Geographic Publications and Discovery Channel books. Shooting both on assignment and for stock imagery, Michael’s image library includes photos from North and South America, Europe, Asia and Africa. His stock photography is available through Robert Harding World Imagery and Alamy."
When you visit Michael's site, take the time to look through his galleries and his blog.
I especially loved the way his galleries are laid out, giving the visitor a full page of click-on thumbnails of both older work and his latest. It's so much more fun than the usual one image at a time or the running film strip at the bottom of the page. Plus, each image comes up with a caption, related to where it was captured.
Check out his website and his blog. You'll never be disappointed.
And don't forget to visit your Tamron dealer and check out Michael's favorite Tamron lenses.
