I met Jerod online like so many of my friends these days. Then one day I get an email from him that he wants to interview me. Wait ! - That is my line. I am the one who does the interviewing. Well, it turned out he was writing a book for our good friends at Peachpit/New Riders entitled "Storyteller: A photographer's Guide to Developing Themes and Creating Stories with Pictures
". After the interview, which ended up in the book, by the way, I realized we had a lot to talk about. So we decided to continue with our conversation here.
