Since starting this series last year, over and over again I'm surprised at the power of the images and backstories being shared. I started "Why?" to introduce you to some of the movers and shakers in the industry, but it's become so much more.
Paul Ernest is in the spotlight and definitely somebody who should be on your radar. Based in Dallas, Paul's work is all about fine art imaging. Like so many artists on "Why?" there's probably nothing Paul can't photograph, but he's chosen fine art because it's so in line with his passion for storytelling.
"We live through stories... stories that are handed down to us through seasons and generations. We are inspired by stories and live to write our own narrative and our own contribution of life to tell."
Check out more of Paul's work by visiting his website and galleries. Just click on his image above. And, if you're interested in a terrific online educational series to help you further develop your storytelling portrait skills, here's the link. He's launching a six week series later this month.
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.
