I was talking to my friend Paul Nicklen recently about the path he’s taken to become a National Geographic photographer and he told a story that resonated with me, a reminder that what it takes is much more than an ability with a camera, it takes commitment and perseverance, among other things, and a willingness to chew on a rotting walrus flipper. Intrigued, if not a little nauseated? Tune in!

If you like what you see, Paul's book POLAR OBSESSION is one of my favourites and it's available on Amazon here: http://amzn.to/1OfSwQg

He’s the best-selling author of Within The Frame, VisionMongers, Photographically Speaking and almost 20 other titles about the craft and art of photography.

Vision is Better is a chance for you to ask David questions about photography, and a chance for David to sound off on these things without, for once, having to write a damn book about it. Please leave your comments on the YouTube page, as that is where David will be interacting.
