Kruger-2-Kalahari Interview

Mario Fazekas of Kruger-2-Kalahari.com has kindly posted a fine 15-question interview of yours truly here. Be sure to surf around the site after you read the interview and check out some really fine African nature photography.

Here is a short excerpt from the interview:

7. Of your many IPT (Instructional Photo-Tour) workshops, which is your favorite and why?

Bosque del Apache NWR because of the birds, the spectacle, the light, and the connection to the memory of my beloved late wife, Elaine Belsky Morris. As I put the finishing touches on this interview my group is enjoying Bosque at its incredible best…

8. What makes a workshop successful from the student’s perspective?

Learning to think like a pro, learning to evaluate situations, getting some great images, and having an instructor who gives a damn.

Seeing me at work in the field, always moving, always switching gear and gears. And of course the killer classroom sessions where a good part of the learning occurs.
