LOOKBetween

My first LOOKbetween gathering was incredibly inspiring. I was honored to have been invited. David Alan Harvey, Mike Davis and I spoke with a small group of photographers titled, “Why make a photograph? Understanding & Harnessing the Photographic Instinct” (quite a privilege). It was a loose format with so many great questions and comments that I learned as well as taught. I thrive and specialize in this kind of safe, casual environment for teaching.
