You cant sell news stories that have data and cautious predictions. Where is the panic? Where is the impending doom? C'mon people , give me something to work with here…

When i left my day job and started a full time career as a photographer i had no idea what awaits me there in this amazing work of light hunting. All my education was shooting shooting shooting and gathering as much information on the great masters of photography, mainly documentary films which showed me not only the work but how it was done, why it was done.

The list of great artists and commercial photographers i have found during my research my persoanal development behind the camera is long and has representatives from all parts of the photographic spectrum.here i am bringing some of my favorite. many more will be added with time. (and yes, i am on the list. so? if i wasnt one of my favorite photographers what the hell am i doing, right?)

And what he did was art. Documentary, but art. Art , but documentary. No one else even comes close to his level of pure perception of a situation
and the details-labored-optimization of each image as a world in its own."
