From November 12 to November 13, 2016

How to become a heck of a Storyteller

"Most photographers are lousy storytellers, but they are fantastic collectors." What does this mean? It means to be a serious photographer, you need to understand the power of narrative, of editing, of clarifying your ideas, enabling you to engage and communicate with an audience. People want stories; not pictures.
