The first time I met Bryan Peterson, when I was the managing editor of Popular Photography magazine, I left our meeting with my head spinning, and a little short of breath. From the moment we said "hi," Bryan was all over the place, making suggestions and ideas for columns and future articles. Each suggestion was brilliant. His enthusiasm was catching.
He told me stories about how he taught his students and, in listening to his stories, I learned techniques about exposure and picture-taking ideas that I've been using to this day. And then he showed my his photos and all I could keep on saying was "wow!" I am convinced Bryan thought I had a one-word vocabulary.
The funny thing is, every meeting we've had ever since has been like that. Bryan loves photography and has a ton of brilliant ideas that he is more than happy to share. That's why I'm thrilled with his involvement with the Adorama Learning Center.
The articles at the right are just the tip of the iceberg. Bryan also comes to New York City and teaches his popular workshops at Adorama's 18th Street store's 5th floor education center. In fact, the next one, Learning to See Creatively, a full-day workshop, is coming up on April 5th. Bryan also runs the Perfect Picture School of Photography (PPSOP), an online photography school with dozens of courses taught by top-shelf instructors that is partnered with Adorama.
So read on, and enjoy Bryan's world!
