I started "Why?" to introduce many of you to the leaders in the photographic industry. Each new episode represents some of the most respected artists in photography today. Plus, there's an incredible benefit to listening to why an image is important to the artist versus just reading about it. Blog posts are so one-dimensional, but nothing tops hearing about the visualization from the artists themselves.
Meet Rick Sammon. Rick and I go back to my Polaroid days. He's an artist, educator, writer, columnist and friends with so many people in the industry. I'm not sure there's anything he hasn't photographed. Plus, he's dealt with virtually every challenge in imaging and then turns what he's learned into lessons to help us all raise the bar on our own images.

Just click on the link below to learn more about Rick along with monitor and printer calibration - two incredibly important components for consistently beautiful images.
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.
