A great image demonstrates the skill set and vision from the artist's mind, but the backstory shares what's in their heart.
This photograph by J.B. Sallee represents so much more than his signature as an outstanding artist. This is about J.B.'s commitment as a father. What I love most about it, is his ability to demonstrate how he used his camera to create a lifelong memory for his daughter.
I've known J.B. and his wife, DeEtte for fourteen years, going back to the very beginning of his professional career. During that time I've watched him grow as an artist, a Dad and a good friend to so many members of the photographic community.
Check out J.B.'s site to see more of his images, with just a click on the "Why?" image above. And, while normally we don't link to workshops in a "Why?" post, the one below was just announce two days ago and is already half full. If you're looking for a pretty incredible educational experience, there are just a few spots left in Scotland with J.B. next summer. Just click on the banner below for all the information.
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.
