Sam Abell presentation "The Photographic Life," was a fantastic talk about his life and work that I learned so much from.
Hiram called and told me one of his idols, legendary National Geographic photographer Sam Abell, was speaking in New Mexico at the University of the Southwest and invited me to go on a little road trip with him to go see his talk. Of course, I said yes.
His talk was amazing, he gave an overview of his life and photography while also telling some really interesting and inspiring stories. Sam’s talk was one of the best talks I’ve ever attended, I really appreciated Hiram inviting me to join him.
Sam gave me so much to reflect on. I took a lot of notes and here some of my favorite nuggets of wisdom and knowledge I learned from Sam Abell:
After his talk, Hiram and I had to meet him in person. We both bought his book and waiting a long line for an opportunity to shake his hand thanking him for his generosity in sharing his knowledge about photography and life.
