Although we've been a little off the schedule on regular posts for "Why?" with too many other projects over the last few months, that doesn't change the reason I love this series. It was started to introduce you to the movers and shakers in imaging, artists who consistently make a difference.
We're getting back on a more regular schedule. With today's post there are now 127 photographers featured in the series, with a long list of new posts to share. Stay tuned - there are a lot more coming! If you missed any of the "Why?" featured artists in the past, they're all just a click away.
Today it's time to meet Larry Becker. Although we've known about each other a good portion of our careers, Larry and I kicked off the friendship a couple of months ago. Larry lives in Lakeland, Florida, and we've found a great little place to catch up once a month for lunch that's halfway for both of us.
Larry's skill set covers a little of everything. He's an artist, photographer, podcaster, writer, and educator. You can catch him regularly on the Picturing Success Podcast. You'll also see him on The Grid from time to time, and find him at conventions and workshops all over the US. Just recently, he created the short video piece on simple product photography below for Platypod.
