As One Photographer Says.

There’s a rap out there that the “media” is full of bad folks.
Not true. There are some, just like anything else.

And some really good ones too.

I follow this photographer on Twitter.

This was a rough one.

A One Image.

leave a comment

This is a first. There are 365 front page above the fold pictures in the Boston Globe each year. On Saturday April 11, 2009 that picture was taken by me. In this case I made the image while at the behest of a commercial client who, in turn, distributed a small sub-set of images to the local media. AP also requested to use the picture. Off it went. Pretty amazing, although it all pales to what the photo shows. Amazing technology and skill at the BWH and darn fine people too. Just a cool lucky thing all around.
