I got a chance to meet my photographic inspiration and idol last week. Jim Brandenburg is a world renowned nature and wildlife photographer. I study his work and visit his gallery in Ely, MN whenever I am there. Last week he had collaboration with the musician Michael Monroe and I spent an evening listening to Michael's wonderful music paired with Jim Brandenburg's photographs. Jim also spent a good deal of time talking about his photos and philosophies. I was in heaven all night. Afterwards we had the chance to meet and speak with Jim. I will cherish this photo forever!
