|Got a call from Younes this week, "wanna go shoot a sunrise?" Wake up at 5 AM, sub zero temps at the faint hope (failed hope) of getting one of those truly memorable mornings? What else was I going to do - Sleep?
The man's a talent, visionary really, he gets sickly excited when he sees a rock coupled with some clouds and the faint tint of orange in the sky - he's also defeated, utterly and personally when those perfect factors don't take formation - guess that's why he's a bit of a nihilist.
Younes puts on workshops and gives private workshops in the Ottawa area (do private workshops come with a happy ending?) - worth every penny - it'll teach you how to be a better photographer no matter what your intended "field" (I thought it was taking pictures of things, no?). You also get so see someone truly passionate in their art at work; it's love in the very purest sense of the word.
