Hi there,

Thanks for submitting your second assignment.

I really enjoyed your piece, however brief.

It’s rare to see such a concise and effective piece that explains exactly what someone thinks about a certain photographer.

I trust that this assignment has refined your thinking about photography ever so slightly.

You seem to show an interest in portraits and moments.

I would focus on that if I was you.

It often takes people a long time to determine they have an interest in one particular area of photography. It seems you already have it narrowed down so run with that.

Shoot awesome portraits and put yourself in a position to capture magical moments.

Sometimes all it takes is showing up. Showing up and mastering some of the technical aspects of photography. Sometimes all it takes is two minutes with a world leader like Winston Churchill!

Thank you for reminding me of Yusuf who spent a great deal of time in Ottawa, the city I grew up in.
