I started "Why?" because I wanted to share more than just great images from the most-respected artists in photography. I wanted to find a way to share each unique back-story, as only they could tell.
Every image has a story behind it, and this is truly a fun one. This new image is by Joe McNally, one of the industry's favorite great guys. We all have our heroes in this industry, and Joe is one of mine. He's a photographer, artist, educator, writer, friend and never stops sharing his insight into imaging, business and here and there, even life.
I wanted to share a few of the highlights from Joe's "about page" and pulled a couple below. If you don't know a lot about his background, just click on the image above to link to his website.
"Joe McNally is an internationally acclaimed photographer whose career has spanned more than 35 years and included assignments in 60 countries...He has been honored numerous times by Communication Arts, PDN, Graphis, American Photo, POY, and The World Press Photo Foundation. His prints are in numerous collections, most significantly the National Portrait Gallery of the United States and National September 11 Memorial & Museum."
Click on the sound bar above and you'll hear an incredible story about how Joe met Wynton Marsalis. And, to attend one of Joe's workshops a link to his schedule is just a click away.
