After having spent over 20 years as editor-in-chief and photo editor of several adventure, travel and leisure magazines, I can say one thing: photography is the lifeline of all my past and present endeavors. Photography says it all. And it says it even better when it catches your breath in a split second. This is what 30° magazine is all about: getting your attention and making you ponder. How on earth did he get that shot?
Being a photo editor isn’t always as fun as it sounds. To find the right picture, you may need to sort through a thousand of them. And go through a zillion photographers. I’m lucky enough I’ve had opportunities to work with the best out there. The most daring. The most imaginative. The most profound. I’ve become very selective.
Technique is a given. You need to know how to handle your camera. Not just think you know. Then, practice sets in. Shoot, shoot, shoot. And shoot some more. Once your eye is sharp, then we can begin talking.
