Photoshelter hosted this truly inspirational talk with photographer Tim Mantoani. It runs a bit long, but it’s definitely worth a watch. Mantoani shares about what truly motivates and inspires him in photography, as well as the experiences photography yields. Most importantly, Mantoani talks about envisioning your dream photo and how to go about capturing it.
The photographer is a cancer survivor, and his experience has influenced his approach to photography. Mantoani has also been working on a fascinating project, Behind Photographs, in which he takes portraits of iconic photographers holding prints of their work.
