Find out why more than 2 million people follow travel and humanitarian photographer +Colby Brown!

"I asked myself, ‘Okay, what do I want to do?' My answer was that I wanted to travel. I was like, ‘Well, why don’t I just become a photographer? Why not? How hard can it be?’ http://bit.ly/1kapd2m

Three or four days later, I bought a one-way ticket to Bangkok. On the flight over..."

Hey everyone! I hope you've had a chance to watch your free Lightroom Workflow class. I FINALLY fixed the link problems once and for all. So if you had any issues downloading your class, you can do so here. I also wanted to ask a favor. Would you mind helping me spread the word this week?

Dave Black is an innovator. In his interview tomorrow, we explore how he has evolved as the craft of photography evolved. He seems to always be in front of the wave, riding it. Prepare to be inspired by this master of light. https://vimeo.com/96640485

Lover of Light
Introduction

Paul Hassell isn't strictly a photographer. Paul is in the light business.

An entrepreneur since the age of fifteen, a lover of solitude, and a loyal friend, Paul defies convention at every turn. You’ll walk away from talking photography with him, and you’ll have the sense that Paul is doing what he was created to do. This at-home-ness in himself and his craft becomes a kind of permission for others to find their vocations and live them.

Paul found what makes him tick and organized his life around that calling. He designed his own major at The University of TN: Freelance Photography and Writing for the Natural Environment. That's a mouthful. He's a member of NANPA, SANP, and the NSA, but the credentials matter less to him than sharing the profound experience. He points the way to a bigger truth and deeper reality.

Paul is the proud owner of Light Finds, Inc. He lives with his wife Nora in the comfortable town of Kodak, TN. Their home along the French Broad River has become their base camp.

Paul has been published in National Parks Magazine, Time/Life, and National Geographic books. Learn more at http://www.LightFinds.Us
