Tony’s Thoughts On The Art1095 Project
Breathtaking is the only one-word phrase that comes to mind for me when thinking about David’s work, and it seems like a word that is not enough. His work makes me question myself, but also, it makes me push myself.
Tony’s Thoughts On David
No one is more kind or humble than David Edmonson. This quality makes him the giant man he is and loved by people on literally every continent. I love this man.
David’s Thoughts On Tony
What is interesting about Tony is unlike most people in the photography world, he entered it and dedicated himself to teaching and serving others. He does it effortlessly and can verbalize complicated concepts in the simplest of ways to make them easily understandable. He understands the subtleties of lighting like few people do. One of the things I’ve said about him is that where most people can light a subject, he can chisel them. He is quick to share a laugh, smile or encouraging word.
