The Photo Editor Blog
Today I got an email from a photographer friend of mine, MT, telling me I had an image featured in an interview with Bill Black of Readers Digest on Rob Haggert, A Photo Editor, blog. It was so fun to hear a little history about someone I've worked with for a few years now. I've never felt like I could get personal (time, professional boundaries etc.) and I've never seen him. I got a chance to get my curiosity satisfied today. Rarely do I see the people that hire me. So much of my work comes from out of town and the PE or AD is usually in NYC. I enjoy playing the imagination game with myself, though. I try to match their voice with what I think they'd look like. Bill's voice is rich, deep, soft and kind. I imagined him older and taller. And for some reason I thought he'd have dark hair with a sophisticated greying at the temples. And my gosh, he's a photographer. Now I Am intimidated. Photographers can be our toughest critics. Or maybe in my case here, my champion. Thank you Bill and thank you, Mark. I needed that.
