    1. When were you first interested in becoming a photographer?
    When I was 6 months old, my twin brother and I were looking for something to do between diaper changes and feedings.


    2. What kind of education did you get before or during your photography career?
    Bachelors degree in art at 18 months, Masters degree in English Literature at 3 and a PHD in Public Philosophy at 5.


    3. When were you first working as a photographer and what?
    1879 on the Mississippi River photographing my good friend Samuel Clemens.


    4. Why did you become a photographer?
    It was less work than working on a steam ship and paid better than being the town drunk.


    5. What do you think is the most challenging thing while taking a photo?
    Getting George Washington to smile. He never was a very cheery person.


    6. What is the main thing that you have learned while being a photographer?
    Always get paid in advance, and always check to make sure the coins are real gold or silver. (Don’t bite them you will break your teeth)


    7. What kind of objects, background, setting do you like in your photos?
    Women of low virtue, bourbon and cigars in a ladies boudoir.


    8. Has being a photographer changed your view of photography and how?
    I only see out of my right eye since my left eye has got lazy and rests all the time.


    9. Is there any challenging or annoying task that you wish could be done easier while taking or editing a picture?
    Not having to take the picture.


    10. What is you favorite thing to do while taking and editing pictures?
    Drinking bourbon, smoking cigars and cavorting with women of low virtue in a ladies boudoir.


    11. What is your preferred camera brand and why
    The Thomas Sutton 8 X10 Studio Camera. (Sutton had good tastes in bourbon) Mine came from the collection of Henry VIII in England. He got tired of it and took up marrying women as a hobby.


    12. What do you think is the most useful tool in editing?
    Scissors


    13. How many pictures does it take to get the right one?
    6,382, unless I am photographing George Washington, then it only takes one since he won’t smile.


    14. What do you think will happen to photography in the future
    It will be replaced by intenerate speakers describing what they have seen on their journeys.


    15. What are some of the obstacles while getting a career in photography?
    Having to get out of bed.


    16. What do you think was the biggest change in photographer thoughout your career?

    17. How many pictures do you take each day?
    As few as possible.


    18. What is your role as a photographer at your work?
    To keep the camera well fed and walk it three times a day.


    19. What was your most memorable experience as a photographer?
    Photographing Mark Antony and Cleopatra. Antony was a bit of a bore but Cleopatra was a real looker with a great sense of humor.


    20. Is there anything else you think I should know about?
    My favorite author is Mark Twain. :sillysmi:
