Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. At the Out of Oregon photography conference this fall…I got to meet some of the best landscape photographers in the world…who it turns out…came from all walks of life. Ian Plant…had been a lawyer. Why give that up?
“Well, pretty simple. I hated being a lawyer and I love being a photographer. Actually I didn’t know I loved being a photographer until I went to law school and my first summer in law school I worked for a firm in New York City. First time in my life I really made some money, so at the end of the summer I bought a camera. And I realized then that I’d just made a huge one hundred thousand dollar mistake.”
Another top photographer, Levi Sim, had worked in oil fields and taught English in China…before he found his focus, so to speak. And about working with Out of Oregon…created by Out of Chicago…he says..
“A great way for me to learn…is to teach.”
