There is a long story behind this image, a story that goes back nearly 15 years. Dave Black, one of the greatest sports photographers of all time, became a hero of mine way back when. I’ve studied his work with creative lighting for over a decade. So, when I happened to run into him in the small town of Cisco Colorado, I was surprised to say the least. We chatted for a bit, shot some photos and that was about it. Well, until the next night I ran into him here at delicate arch. I won’t tell you how I got down here, but Dave refereed to me as ‘The Fearless Leader’. Anyway, he was conducting a light-painting workshop (he’s the guy holding the light up top) and invited all my buddies from the #nXn20123 trip to join in We all sat back and had a great time as the most legendary light-painter did his thing. I guess this lesson here is, always be nice and respectful. The world is a staggeringly small place and it’s important to fill it with positive energy. You just never know how you might meet out there, so open yourself to new adventure and meeting new people.
