Welcome to Photography insights, your one-stop guide to interviews with people in the photography industry.
Thank you all for listening and supporting the show and please do keep the Facebook and iTunes reviews coming in.
For episode 80 we bring you Louis Rodriquez from Tijuana on the border of Mexico and California. Like many, Louis started with digital and quickly moved to film and plies his trade shooting musicians for magazines. Louis has tried other things in life like being a musician/songwriter and had his own studio but ended up in photography. He talks to us about some of the people he has shot and some very interesting stories. I need to thank Louis for his honesty about some of the issues he’s faced in his life and the everyday problems of living near a border.
