    I think you can be trained to use a camera, I don't think you can be trained to have a vision.

    Very nice.

    Yea I have seen this guy already. He's definitely awesome, but I really think that it's more than just photography now. I think what really makes him so popular is his graphic art skills.

    I think it's both. He knows how to use a camera AND he has vision. He is obviously a skilled photographer and also an excellent graphic artist. Considering he's only 20, I think these are amazing.

    Yeah, I've lost LOTS of time to that one (not to mention all the links on the right hand side)! And he adds to it constantly!

    I totally agree, and well said.

    Some people have that talent to make them really stand out amongst there peers. Think of a professional sports team and how many of those players are truly the best at what they are doing. Sure, each team has its star player(s), but there are also many other very capable players on that team that also contribute to the game.

    That guy's stuff is really nice, and it can only get better considering his young age. While I envy him for the level of talent he has that I will probably never touch on, I still love what I am doing. :)

    I find it more inspiring to see the possiblilies and grow from it than depressing to find there are obviously people out there better than me.

    Joey L did the Nikon Vs. Canon rap video.

    At least we're not a Pentax.

    The subject matter helps too.

    There is only so much you can do with a concrete block after all. :)
