2 weeks ago I had the good fortune to be in Puerto Rico with 4 talented photographers. We explored the island and learned about photography from each other. For me photography has aways been a way to share experiences with a wider world. That engagement is what gets me going. Its why I wanted to shoot for National Geographic, I wanted to share exploration with the widest audience possible.
But with social media you don't need a publishing powerhouse behind you to reach people. Platforms like Instagram and Twitter and Facebook put us all on the same playing field and open up audiences that did not exist just a few years ago.
Its an exciting time to be a photographer!
