Bill and Jeffery respond to feedback about workshops & websites, famous people buying Leicas, and why taking less pictures is better. Then Bill recounts being ignored by Philip Glass and his methodology behind a group shot of 10 people. Of course Edward Steichen, our photographer of the week, could have done a better job I’m sure.
