Colorado has a lot of brilliant photographers. I met two of them in Pagosa Springs, CO.
Sarah Curry has authored a book and has a website with incredible stories and images of people. Gary Musgrave has a photo gallery at Musgrave Wildlife & Wood 262 Pagosa St Pagosa Springs, CO and online with astounding images of wildlife and nature. And both of them are absolutely intriguing to talk to - so if you are anywhere near them, I hope you get the chance to meet them.
Time didn't allow me to get photos of them, so I "borrowed" these from their websites. I don't normally post other photographers work, but since I come from the school of "Tis better to ask forgiveness than permission", I hope this will get their blessing.
Meeting them inspired me to think about the great passion and diversity of photography. Sarah uses the camera to "create" thought provoking, visually stunning images. Gary uses his lenses to "capture" mind blowing scenes and split second events. Whereas I use my gear to "compose" photos of people looking their best and expressing a side they never have shown before.
So, three different types of photography with one common element...
We all use our cameras to tell stories.
So that leads me to conclude with a question for you...
What kinds of stories do you tell with your images?
