I have taught many classes, but none quite like today! It was #CareerDay at my wife's school and I had the #honor of being one of their guest speakers.
I went into several 5th grade classrooms and spoke to them about where I began, how I got to where I am now, and what plans I have for the future. I explained how I was like them, from a family of immigrants, struggled through school with a learning disability, and even being told I'd never amount to anything.
I took out my camera and some #icelights @westcottlighting (or as they called them the light sabers 😂) and even passed them around the room. They were intrigued and amazed at the tools that we use @canonusa & @phottix system. When I showed them some images they couldn't believe they weren't enhanced in any way. I chose some students to #model for me, and showed them how to pose, and let their friends be my assistants and hold the lights.
They were wide eyed, excited, full of potential and some great questions! Speaking to these children was very different than anything I'm used to, but it was wonderful to think I may have witnessed or even #INSPIRED a new #photographer !
They are our future, and potentially our next great artists...I am truly humbled.
