Photo by Rick Sammon
Nature photography icon and Canon Explorer of Light Rick Sammon delivers nearly 50 bits of wisdom he’s acquired from more than four decades of mishaps, mistakes, and mingling with other photographers and entrepreneurs. The lessons include classic “Sammonisms” like Go where you’re looking, Use your camera like a spaceship, and Shower with your tripod as well as pithy quotes from influences such as Freeman Patterson, John Lennon, Warren Buffett, and Rick’s dad. Rick explains to Dawn Wilson, Ron Hayes, and Jason Loftus why the answer to most questions he’s asked about photography is “It depends,” and what you should be asking instead.
