In Conversation with Rick Sammon (Podcast 679)

by | Oct 2, 2019 | Interview, Musings, Podcast | 0 comments

This week I’m sharing a joint podcast with world-renowned photographer Rick Sammon, covering a myriad of photography topics, and Rick’s 40th book, Photo Therapy Motivation and Wisdom—Discovering the Power of Pictures.

Photo Therapy Book

As this was not a scripted conversation, I do not have a text post for you this week, so please listen with the audio player above.

We get into all sorts of photography related topics, as well as the importance of showing respect for our subjects. As Rick and I have both run photography tours in Namibia, we had a lot in common. I also shared some quick tips on being prepared to shoot on a wildlife photo safari.

Rick and I also talked about a kind of group therapy that we get on tours like my Namibia tour, where groups of like-minded photographs get to spend lots of quality time together in amazing locations. This is just one of the topics covered in Ricks new book, which you can get on Amazon with this link:

You can follow Rick’s antics and connect with him on Social Media etc. over on this Web site here:

I hope you enjoy our conversation. I certainly did, and that’s usually a good sign. It’s an honor to talk as we did with someone so established and so full of energy, despite being 70 years old next year. I look forward to doing so again soon.

Complete Namibia Tour & Workshop 2020

At the time of releasing this podcast, I currently have three places still open on my 2020 Complete Namibia Tour & Workshop, from June 20 to July 6, so if you are interested, check out the details on our tour page. Note too that we have to finalize our numbers for this tour well in advance, possibly within the next couple of weeks, so please make our decision as soon as possible, to avoid disappointment. If you are too late for the 2020 tour, or the schedule just doesn’t work for you, we are also now taking booking for 2021 as well, and these can all be seen on our Tours & Workshops page.
