As the "Why?" series comes up on its first hundred artists, I continue to be amazed at the diversity behind each story and the passion each artist has been willing to share about the image, and their philosophy about their journey as a photographer.
Hannah Couzens joins me on today's new episode, and she's a perfect example of the fun of the Internet and social media. I "met" Hannah thanks to Profoto. She's one of three online educators who helped launch the Profoto Academy, a series of webinars designed to help you raise the bar on your skill set.
Looking at Hannah's work, I knew right away I wanted to talk her into doing a "Why?" episode. Thanks to Facebook, I tracked her down with an IM, and finally thanks to Skype, we recorded this new podcast.
While there are days when the interruptions social media creates sometimes make us crazy, and we all wish we weren't so accessible - nothing changes the fact that it's made the world a much smaller place. Hannah is based near London and not only did we have a great conversation about the image, but the best part of the industry is all about the friendships we make along the way!

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.
