Most Enjoyed:

The humorous banter and even keeled attitude that John maintained even on the challenging days when the poo was not far from hitting the fan…

I also enjoyed the numerous conversations John and I had; his unending willingness to share his honest insights, thoughts and ideas on literally any question I asked. Whether pertaining to the business of photography or the way he ran his, …even when they challenged his personal approach.

Least Enjoyed:

The, what seemed to be, never ending “data mining” trips to the Martin Luther King Jr. Library in downtown D.C.; which we frequented so often that the “regulars” began to look at us in the same way.

What I Learned:

I came to see the inside of the “machine” and that is exactly what I was privy to. I saw first hand the tremendous amount of time and energy that it takes to run a successful photography business and how incredibly important the nuisances and intricacies of contracts, negotiations and business acumen are to maintaining that success.

I was able to further substantiate the notion that the quality of your pictures matter little without an ability to market, sell and produce those images in a way that allows one to sustain their livelihood.
