One of my very good friends/colleagues, Armin deFiesta, is a go-getter. He’s always getting his fingers into new projects….he has been a wedding photographer for years but is now doing more commercial work and photographing sports cars. He also is the producer/creator of a photography competition called SHUTTER WARS. It’s a challenge-based reality TV and/or webisode concept focusing on professional photography and its target market – entry-level DSLR consumers. Check out the first WEBISODE here (and listen closely to the theme music written by Mr. Jack MacInnis!!!).
As an off-shoot to this series, Armin launched a new website/blog called mypicdaddy.com — The purpose of his blog is to “educate and inspire new digital camera owners, from smartphone users to digital SLR (DSLR) shooters“. As part of his education for readers, he has been doing a ‘featured photographer’ interview. He has interviewed a couple of my good friends/colleagues and this past weekend, came by my home studio to interview me. I am not a fan of being in FRONT of the lens and had a crack-up doing this. Read: many takes. In any event, check it out. He’s a great editor!!! And if you’re an amateur photographer, I recommend subscribing to his blog so you can get his updates and tips, tricks and product reviews.
Here’s the link where you can read his write-up and also view the video he produced. Thanks Armin!!!
