This interview was fantastic Mark! I distinctly remember being awestruck when I first had the pleasure of seeing some of your avian photography (which was during a critique session at the workshop we both attended in Death Valley way back in 2020!). So it was great to hear some more context on what drew you to this kind of work in the first place!

I also especially loved the (paraphrased) quote you shared from Robert Henri: Paint the spirit of the bird, not just its feathers. I think this concept is equally applicable to nearly any other genre of photography and gets at the core of what Minor White meant when he told us to photograph things not just “for what they are, but for what else they are.”

@Nick_Becker Thank you. I’m glad you enjoyed it. I really like that quote from Minor White. I’ll remember that one!
