It's the first anniversary of "Why?" and what a year it's been. My good friend John Sexton was the first artist in the series, and since then we've shared the work and wisdom from sixty-five other photographers. With each episode, we've learned something about their love for the craft. The backstories have involved great memories and a peek at the passion these artists have been willing to share.
Since it's the first anniversary, I wanted to share one of my favorite images, but not as insight into my skill set, but in appreciation to one of SCU's partners, Panasonic and Tom Curley, who's responsible for their US Luminary Team. Panasonic's tagline is "Changing Photography," and that's exactly what they're doing. Most of you know I don't make a living as a photographer. While I know more than I let on, it's the business/marketing side of photography that intrigues me the most, However, I'll match my passion for having a camera in my hands against anybody and these days I'm never without a LUMIX camera.
Next week we'll kick off a new year of images in the "Why?" series with a favorite of David Beckstead's. It's a new year, and there are at least a dozen different images with backstories ready to go.
Thank you for supporting this series and an especially BIG thanks to all the artists who have shared their stories and favorite images! Interested in looking at the entire series one by one? Just click on my image above.
