One of the most fun aspects of this industry are the friendships made over the years. And with cyberspace and social media, we all have friends who we've never met in person from other parts of the world.
Meet Simon King, a photographer from the UK. We met A few years back on Facebook, and he wrote a couple of great guest posts for the SCU blog. Here's one that's so relevant now about giving back.
I caught up to Simon over the weekend in an IM, and as we caught up on life and the challenges of the pandemic, he mentioned he's got an image in the Travel Photographer of the Year awards. Please check it out, and if you feel inclined, send a vote his way.
It would be a kick to have one of our own guest writers recognized. It's #115:
“Boys from the Drago Contrada playing the Palio game before the main event that evening. Taken during Il Palio Di Siena, Tuscany, Italy.”

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.
