I started "Why?" as a new feature on the SCU site to help more photographers understand the stories behind the favorite images of some of the most respected artists in our industry today. I can't turn back the clock and chase down photographers who are no longer with us, but stay tuned. I'm going to be sharing a new image every week along with a short sound byte about the images from the artists themselves.
Every image has a story behind it or a vision of the artist. Scott Bourne is in today's spotlight.
In 2009 I met Scott at Skip's Summer School in Las Vegas, not remembering we'd met close to twenty years earlier, back in my Hasselblad days. Since 2009 we wrote a book together, GoingPro. Then we launched a website and podcast by the same name which ran for several years and is essentially the roots of SkipCohenUniversity.com. Recently we launched a new podcast series, "Mind Your Own Business" as part of Photofocus.com.
Besides being a great friend, artist, writer, educator and entrepreneur, Scott is a visionary. You'll understand why that's so important as you listen to him talk about one of his most recognized images, "Cranes in the Fire Mist."
Click on the sound bar above and you'll hear an incredible story about Scott's quest to capture this image. And, to see more of Scott's work just click on the image to connect to his website. For educational information about Scott, visit Photofocus.com.
We've postponed the f64 Lunch Bunch for a few weeks. There's so much going on in everybody's lives right now in terms of help and education. However, we're all still here to help and just an email away.
And if you missed the May 6 lunch with Bobbi Lane and Tony Corbell - it's pretty amazing. The video is just a click away.
