Do you know who qualifies as a talented photographer?
– Do you have to be granted special access to take pictures of famous people like John and Jackie Kennedy or celebrities like Beyoncé and Bobbie De Niro?
– Do you have to be able to capture images of the horrors of war or destruction caused by natural disasters that will (hopefully) never be repeated again?
– Do you have to own a camera?
Well, if you use my definition as your selection criteria, then talented photographers are simply awesomely gifted people who can use a camera to create precious, special and memorable moments in time.
In my book, if you can do that you’re qualified and go on my list as a talented photographer.
At one time, I published a blog which was called “My Diversity Corner” (MDVC). It was a collection of articles written by me and links to other interesting reads that, in my humble opinion, promoted understanding and harmony. That blog is no longer being published and my diversity collection is instead being maintained on Pinterest via my pinboard labeled Cutural Diversity; and also curating content on Scoop.it under the general topic Soceity & Culture. My first MDVC entry was posted August 2011, but there was one post published in 2012 that was consistently the most popular for the entire year. It was about famous multiracial celebrities*.
The blog post was sharing a link to an article published by another freelance writer named Susan Eckert, who among her many talents, is not only an excellent writer but also a very talented photographer. Unfortunately, her articles are no longer available to the public online. The article she wrote caught my eye because it had a picture of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who attended the University of Miami, Coral Gables, Florida. Use that fact to brag about the celebrities that attended the same institution of higher learning as yours truly (moi!); even though I was long gone from the university before Mr. Johnson arrived. *[You can check out my mug shot.

Ms. Eckert’s photography website inspired me to create another pinboard; and point people in the direction of links to discoveries of other talented photographers like her. View a sampling of pins below or click link to view my entire Pinterest collection. Talented Photographers
