My son is studying American history in 4th grade. Benjamin Franklin. The Revolution. “Give me liberty, or give me death.” His little sister, all of five, misheard Patrick Henry's quote, and apparently she and her best friend were chanting “Give me America, or give me death,” on the school playground. (You can't make this shit up.) I pointed out to my son, however, that while that was the history I learned in school… The Stamp Tax. The Boston Tea Party. The shot heard round the world. Washington crossing the Delaware. …That it was really only one part of American history. There were the Native Americans, of course, but our very own [...]

Craig Oppenheimer, Wonderful Machine Just as often as I consult with photographers when they need pricing and negotiation support, I work closely with agencies to oversee projects from initial photographer recommendations through production and retouching. This experience on both sides of productions has allowed me to thoroughly understand what clients are looking for, and many times it's the photographer's personality and ability to be a problem solver that lands them the gig.
