It has been fun posting my thoughts and experiences about photography here for the past few years. After 16 years, I’ve finished my time at Seton Hall, and have moved on to a new position at Iona College.
It has been a great experience working with so many talented photographers during my time here. I hope to continue many of the working relationships with all of the talented people I’ve gotten to know.
I was thinking this morning about how the quiet dedication and hard work of all these photographers can go completely unrecognized.
When we hire hire a photographer to cover a shoot for an hour or two, we seldom consider how much prep time they put in to getting ready, everything from hiring an assistant to renting equipment to scouting the locations. Afterwards, the review of files, color correcting, cropping and retouching take more time than the shoot itself. Then they have to deliver the files to us in some way.
I have so much respect for all of you. You always make me look good, and you make my job much more fun and rewarding. I am grateful.
