"Why?" started out as an idea to introduce you to the movers and shakers in the industry. Now, forty photographers, images and backstories later, it's become one of the most fun features I've ever shared on a blog.
We look at hundreds of images every day and take the process of creativity completely for granted. It's just another picture, but to the artist who captured the image it's a favorite for a wide variety of reasons. Plus, with every back story to date, the originator has often shared some solid educational content.
Meet David Guy Maynard with today's new "Why?" David is an educator, artist, writer and primarily focuses his passion on portraiture, but in all honesty, I doubt there's anything he can't photograph. Even though we share a lot of mutual friends, we finally met through his affiliation with Tamron USA as an Image Master. You'll find more about him with a click on the image above as well as his Tamron Image Master page. Make sure you keep track of his workshop schedule and follow him on Facebook. He's on the road teaching throughout the year.
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.
