(note from Rob) I know, I know, this is episode 26, not 25 like I opened the show with. I tell you, when I do this sober I fuck it up. But it is what it is. Maybe I need more education…How Important is Education?
With much anticipation, Ted Forbes from The Art of Photography joins us for an excellent discussion on the role of education in photography. Do you need an academic degree? Sometimes, depending on what you want to do. Do you need some form of mentorship? Absolutely!
We normally write a bunch of stuff here to try to make what Rick, Tony, and Rob say seem more interesting (a Herculean task at times) but today, the podcast can stand on its own. If you’re thinking about getting a formal education or continuing with a more informal education or training, you definitely want to give this show a listen.
A huge thank you to Ted for being such a gracious guest and offering such great insight.Today’s Artists
Ted talks about a family friend and successful photographer from the 70s and 80s, the late Greg Booth. We don’t have a link for Greg’s work but watch Ted’s show and he has a project in the work to start displaying Greg’s work.
Our artist is Akira Yoshizawa, the founder of modern Origami. Rob discovered Yoshizawa while watching the documentary, Between the Folds.
