    So you finally met my buddy DAH, eh....;o)))?
    Seriously, Rafal, thanks for that, very enlightening, affirming, and so on.
    You know we thing of the guy as MAGNUM but career-wise he's a Nat Geo shooter though and through, meaning that he is used to spending

    Ah...it's not working so here goes - he is used to spending MONTHS on a single assignment, gradually disarming the locals in a small town in Guatemala, then little by little putting together a portfolio of images when everyone is used to his presence. It is very different from what we are confronted with on a 10 day holiday somewhere, eh?
    I recently spent a morning with an Aussie Pro who was shooting a portrait of one of our execs - he told me he assisted Steve McCurry (another Nat Geo veteran) for two days in Tokyo - exhausting! The fellow kept shooting and re-shooting and trying this and that.
    It's what separates the men (them) from the boys (us) I guess...
    But from the little contact I had with Mr Harvey I learned two things: 1) he is a wonderful man and 2) a hell of atecher. WOuld you agree with that, Rafal?

    I got to see that forst hand. It takes him 5 seconds to become friends of a group of strangers and then in 5 more seconds he's just taking their photos and they are loving it.

    Hes a great teacher Francis.

    Hey Rafal!
    This is awesome! It reminds me the first time I surfed with some of the best surfers in the world. I was so excited that I surfed like a mad-man that day (despite massive waves). It was incredibble to see the rigorous approach they had on the sport. These people work when we have fun.
    It seems like meeting DAH was the same sort of thing for you! Must have been absolutely brilliant!
    Is this vice serie your new big theme? It looks like this place you're shooting in is brilliant! Looking forward to see how it develops!
