bts_ricksammonheadshotCanon Explorer of Light and award-winning photographer Rick Sammon loves his day job. A tireless, prolific and inspirational image-maker, Rick, called by some “The Godfather of Photography,” is one of the most active photographers on the planet – dividing his time between creating images, leading photo workshops, and making personal appearances. His enthusiasm for digital imaging is contagious. He is a man on a mission – a mission to make digital photography fun, creative, exciting and rewarding for others.

Rick has authored more photography books than anyone I know, with his latest, Creative Visualization for Photographers and Evolution of an Image, putting the number close to 40.

I asked Rick once how he describes his photography, and answered “evolving,” He hesitates to categorize his work. He does it all, and enjoys the freedom of not specializing.

With nearly 40 years of experience, this self-taught photographer has many accomplishments – and Rick as suggests, “When you are through changing, you are through.”

Join me on this episode as Rick discusses his HDR image Sunrise at the Blue Swallow.
