The February 2009 issue of National Geographic featured my bio photograph of Melissa Farlow, whom I’d met in 2007 while photographing Mustangs at the ISPMB. We’ve kept in touch and hope to meet again. Recently, PhotoShelter featured her as one of their stable of artists and the image was published again, this time on their website. Melissa, like me, would much rather be behind the camera than in front of it and so I am delighted that she likes this photograph of herself so much. Sometime when I’m out with the horses I’m hoping someone gets a new, wonderful image of me that I like as well as she likes this one. Every photographer needs a photographer!
