The most fun aspect of being in this industry has nothing to do with photography, but the people you meet and the passion everyone shares for the craft!
Mikel Galicia is in the SCU spotlight today. The fun part of the story is how we "met." Working with PhotoShelter on a new podcast series called "Beyond Technique," due to air on the third Wednesday of each month starting in January, I was looking through their website. I wandered into a very cool section called New Member Shoutouts. I went out for a scroll in cyberspace and found a lot of great images and decided to start sharing some of them here at SCU.
The first paragraph on Mikel's about page hits a unique aspect of his background, being a freelance writer as well as a photographer:
Mikel Galicia is a freelance writer and photographer in Dallas, TX. As a graduate of the Mayborn School of Journalism at the University of North Texas, he has a strong background in journalism and has work published in Sports Illustrated, ESPN, D Magazine, Dallas Observer, Houston Press, Phoenix New Times, Central Track and more. Since graduating from college Mikel honed his craft as a sports and music photographer, but his skills extend beyond event coverage.
