Every image has a story behind it and this classic of "Kansas" by Eddie Tapp is no exception. It's also the only place it's ever been shared.
You can read all about Eddie with a click on the image itself, but as always, I like to add my perception and experience. Eddie is one of those buddies who, even though we don't catch up that often, if I needed help on something he'd simply be there. He's a member of the Photoshop Hall of Fame and was one of the first artists to teach Photoshop in video, working together with our long-time friend, Dean Collins.
There's pretty much nothing Eddie can't shoot - from commercial work to landscape, to portraits to being on the bottom of the ocean, he's rarely without a camera. He's also one of the few people I've ever met who knew while still in high school, exactly what he wanted to do with his life, and spent $500 he'd saved for his first Hasselblad while still a teenager!
Eddie is an artist who needs to be on your radar. The next time you're at a convention, make it a point to introduce yourself. He's an outstanding instructor, writer and let's not forget friend! Eddie is also an X-Rite Coloratti and one click on the logo below, and you can find out even more about him and the rest of the Coloratti team.
A BIG thanks to Eddie for taking the time for a quick sound byte to share a unique image and a trip down memory lane.
