Lisa Langell, wildlife photographer, and Larry Pollack, commercial photographer, discuss their personal journeys as photographers. Larry’s Sedona Milky Way image had just been selected for National Geographic Explorer! They go way back to when they both started dabbling in photography, talking about their experiences and offering advice. Learn from others but don’t compare yourself to others!! Everyone is on their own journey – learning at their own pace. Lisa and Larry discuss the difference between documenting and creating fine art, plus creating your own style! Emulation of greats like Ansel Adams is a great way to start but at some point you have to “be your own” artist. Part of this is planning your shoots and doing the research. Will buying more expensive gear solve your photography woes? Learn your tools before replacing them – new gear does not always mean you will get better images. Stay passionate and don’t let others get you down. Watch the entire discussion here..
