Simon Says - New Mentors Forum

Simon Says -- SimonSawSunlight Photo Technique

From time to time its been suggested that RFF have a mentor Photography help section in terms of Technique - how to shoot this or that. 1st of all I had to find someone whose work I really like. 2ndly that photog had to be willing help others. That's the catch: so many excellent photogs just are not wiling to make the time for that, or just as likely, simply don't give a damn about helping others.

SimonSawSunlight is an excellent up and coming photog whose work seems to go well beyond his 24 years. You can view Simon's blog at http://simonsawstreet.blogspot.com/ and his portfolio at http://simonb.daportfolio.com . Simon has been published in in FAZ (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung), LFI (Leica Fotografie International) and more recently in Radiate Magazine. He also recently had a large solo-exhibition in Berlin. Not too Shabby! So, let us begin this adventure and see where it goes.

new forum located at http://www.rangefinderforum.com/foru...play.php?f=194

Thank for taking this on Simon!

Njoy!

Stephen

Good for you Simon, does this mean "I have to get on bended knee" the next time we get together?

I second this.

In fact, I think there are a bunch of folks here on RFF who I learn from every day. But it's nice to see it will be a more organized approach.
