    Great way to spend my evening at home. Photography has not only opened up to me a world of creativity but also brought me to know, (albeit via cyber at times) some really nice people, as the two sharing with us their conversation on this podcast. Thank Martin!

    Ah, two of my favorite photographers in this podcast!

    There are so many great points that the two of you bring up. Receptivity ~ love the concept and I totally agree. Limitations are only set by the person behind the lens. I could go on and on! Thanks for sharing!!!!

    Get well to the both of you. I can’t wait to see what the next level that you and David move up to next!

    Hi Martin,

    I really enjoyed your conversation with David.

    There is great depth here. Sure, a lot of talk of gear, but as a means to photographic expression.

    What struck me most, though, was how David seems to be plotting how he will turn his recent adversity into a benefit going forward; using it as a positive stepping stone of some kind in his career.

    It leaves me pondering your own situation, of which I have some experience. I truly wish you well (in all senses of those words).

    Hi Martin,
    Fantastic interview with David. You both show tremendous strength and still maintain a sense of humor. That’s great! Would love to throw a few (or 10) pints with both of you. Be well and get well guys. God Bless!

    Great interview, Martin. I’ve listened to David interviewed on so many different podcasts already that I didn’t expect to get much out of this one. Boy was I wrong. Your discussion was interesting and useful in a way that NONE of the other podcasts were. Without naming names, the other interviews (and interviewers) come across as very superficial by comparison. Thanks for another great podcast! I will be listening to this one more than once.

    I see from other comments that you’ve made that you are on the mend. I’m relieved to read this and it is my hope and prayer that you continue on the read to a full recovery.
