“Ambassadors of Love & Influence Disguised as Photographers” (Edmonsons, part 2)

“Ambassadors of Love & Influence Disguised as Photographers” (Edmonsons, part 2)

If you enjoyed part 1 of The PhotoTellers conversation with David & Luke Edmonson, I have a warning for you: They were just getting warmed up! This is the long-awaited [48 hours] conclusion of my time with this Father/Son dynamic duo.

What can you expect? GET YOUR NOTEPAD READY:

  • We begin with a Dad’s mission for his son.
  • Then Luke reveals “the best gift he [Dad] ever gave me.”
  • David’s intense reaction to Luke’s suggestion, “Why don’t we shoot weddings?”
  • #hulavibrations. Do you pick up on others’ hula hoop vibrations?
  • “The MOST IMPORTANT piece of equipment . . .  for wedding photography.” HINT: “Equipment is not gonna solve your problems; it’ll solve a problem.
  • Should you copy the work of other Photographers? (You might be surprised here)
  • Can a bottle of wine make you a better Photographer?
  • What is the difference between “committing” vs. “submitting” to something?
  • What “crucible” will fast-track your success as a Photographer?
  • What 2 elements are crucial for improvement in the craft?
  • Why did David quit print competition for 25 years?!
  • Hear the emotional story of the “throw-away” test shot that is now priceless to Luke; then the story of David’s priceless photo of his daughters. Then you’ll understand why it’s so difficult for Luke to simply take a snapshot of his family, and why he asserts: “I want them to have the fullness of my hands.”

Does this seem like a robust conversation? I’ve only listed a few of the “high points.” Prepare yourself.

David Edmonson beautifully concludes: “We are the ambassadors of love and influence, well-disguised as Photographers.”

Indeed, Gentlemen, you are.
