On this episode, I’m sharing my interview with Chris Orwig. Chris is a playful father of three girls, photographer, author and teacher. He recently taught a class on Creative Live called Capturing Authentic Photos of Children & Families. He’s the author of many books including The Creative Fight, Visual Poetry and People Pictures.
Chris shares how a massive hard drive failure showed him how important his family photos were to him. He also shares an exercise to help us slow down with our cameras and just use one button. A listener asks if he has a good photo of each of his family members. If he doesn’t, does he have the same pit in his stomach she has when she thinks about the photo that doesn’t yet exist of that person? A few other things we talk about are being present as parents and photographers, insurance and the idea of luck.
