“Your true success in life begins only when you make the commitment
to become excellent at what you do.”
Welcome to Tamron Recipes. This is our fourth episode and what a trip it's been so far. If you've joined us for the first three episodes, you'll notice a familiar theme, the recipe for success.
There are so many quotes about success, but this new one we chose to share by Brian Tracy certainly hits on the importance of a commitment to be the very best. It almost seems like it was written for both our guest "chef," Mike Moats, as well at Tamron USA!
Mike is on a never-ending quest to capture images from a world most of us never really see. "Tiny Landscapes" is his website and it's perfect for his love of macro photography. In this new podcast, he shares a lot of wonderful insight and his love for the craft couldn't be more obvious.
For his first photograph, which we shared last week, he used Tamron's SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD lens on a FUJI S5 body. Each Tamron Recipe is always in two parts, starting with an outstanding image, followed by the story behind it, as well as more about the "chef."
Mike's first recipe in the Tamron Kitchen is just a click away. And, check out the SP 90mm lens with a click on the thumbnail to the right. There's also a great rebate program going on right now at your Tamron dealer. Savings information on other Tamron lenses is just a click way on the banner below.

Mike's passion comes out loud and clear in the podcast, but his images also demonstrate his love for the macro photography combined with his creativity and diversity. Keep in mind all of the images below are screen shots. So, imagine their beauty of the actual prints. Mike's definitely a "chef" who should be on your radar.
