Over the weekend, I tailgated Eric. I expected those 3 days to be super technical, revolving around photography gear, camera settings and pixel peeping. But through our conversations, the photography workshop turned into more of a philosophical workshop about life.
Amidst shooting, I asked him the reason behind teaching this workshop. Having grandpa level maturity, he told me of his bigger purpose of watching people regain faith in humanity. He is a sociology major after all, using photographs to capture society.
We talked about the definition of success, our version of perfect days and the irrelevance of ego. This really challenged me to have deeper conversations on an everyday basis.
