A Fun Chat WIth Ted

Ted Forbes – The Art Of Photography, YouTube

Many of you, I hope, know Ted Forbes and have visited his YouTube channel, The Art of Photography. Ted is one of those guys you just like when you meet him. Ted and I have known of each other for a while. But it was only within the last year that we met and, upon doing so (pardon the pun), we clicked.

Both of us share the same passion for photography and the same philosophy about getting out there and taking the shot. You may remember seeing a video that Ted and I collaborated on earlier this year while at a Sony event, Rules, Disciplines and Other Talk. We both thought it would be fun to sit down and have a casual conversation about photography and other things. It was a lot of fun and completely unscripted. If you haven’t seen it, you can view it below.

Kevin and Ted – Rules, Disciplines and Other Talk

A few weeks ago, Sony invited the press out to an event in San Francisco for the announcement of the new 24mm G-Master lens. I was not able to attend as I was having hip replacement surgery, so I sent Luminous-Landscape videographer Michael Durr in my place. He not only made the report on this new lens, “Sony Releases 24mm 1.4 GM Lens,”  but he also did a new video with Ted Forbes. The video, Working Within Limitations A Chat With Ted Forbes (below) is short and fun.

Ted talks about the rash of new camera announcements and whether all this new gear helps us or hurts us. Ted believes that the gear is not so important. As photographers, we can work within the limitations of the gear we own and use regularly. Gear doesn’t make a photographer. Ted makes some great points and pokes some fun at me as well. I hope you enjoy the video.

As mentioned in the video, Ted Forbes and I made our first video in Las Vegas at the Sony a7 III launch. You can read the article with video here: Sony a7 III Hands-On Review. Or if you’d like to just view the video, you can see it here: Why you will LOVE the SONY A7 III. (below)

During the next twelve months, Ted and I will be working together on a couple of projects that I am sure you will enjoy. We also plan to have Ted join us in a future On The Rocks video. In the meantime, check out his YouTube channel and subscribe so you can view all the great content he is providing.

Photography is my passion and has been for 45 plus years. My career in photography has allowed me to travel the world, meet some of the most interesting people on the planet and see things I could never have dreamed of. My goal is to share the passion of pictures taking through photographs and teaching with as many people as I can hoping it brings them as much joy and happiness as it has me. I do this through Rockhopper Workshops and other projects as well as teaching at my Gallery in Indianapolis.
