Just crossing the seven-week mark, Suzette Allen and Jonny Yoshinaga hit 10,000 miles on the Bubble Trailer Light Tour today. It's been a fantastic project to follow and definitely falls under a work-hard-play-hard style of living. Along the way, they've spent time with hundreds of photographers both educationally and socially. If there were an award for Photography Ambassadors of the year, they'd get my vote along with every artist they've touched along the way.
Even Sheila and I caught them for a visit and a couple of nights just hanging out together. In addition to everyone's love for imaging, Light Tour is all about engagement. Social media is an amazing communication vehicle and allows us to all keep in touch - but we're all missing actual contact. Nothing beats talking directly with other artists and friends. Even more important, nothing beats being inspired.
And all along the way, whether in the middle of the country, NYC or driving along the Florida coast, they're sharing images...
The energy Suzette and Jonny have put into this project is only one ingredient in the recipe for its success. The sponsors and obviously the attendees have played a big role.
The Bubble Trailer Light Tour is sponsored by a stellar group of outstanding companies, each one committed to photography. They're all focused on helping artists raise the bar on their skill set. They don't just make great products - they believe in education.
The Bubble Trailer Light Tour has a few more weeks and a three thousand miles to go. Here's the schedule for next three weeks. Occasionally dates and locations are subject to change. The complete itinerary is available with a click on the button below!
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.
