I started "Why?" as a new feature on the SCU site to help more photographers understand the stories behind the favorite images of some of the most respected artists in our industry today. I can't turn back the clock and chase down photographers who are no longer with us but stay tuned. I'm sharing new images every week along with short sound bytes about the images from the artists themselves.
Every image has a unique back-story and this portrait by Bob Coates is no exception. I've followed Bob's work since we first met back in my early WPPI days. What started out as simply respect for his skill set and never-ending quest to capture the ultimate image, has grown into a terrific friendship. We've spent a lot of time with Bob, and he's never without a camera.
In this new "Why?" Bob shares a powerful back-story making this so much more than just a beautiful portrait. Bob should be on your radar. Just click on the image to visit his blog, which is always loaded with terrific content. And, you'll always find more of Bob's work in the Lumix Lounge.
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.
