    S2 Shorty Part 2 - Chris Barr & Rob chat about "Origins"

    Chris and Rob continue to talk about their early years in photography.
    Chris goes deeper into Africa and the opportunities it gave him, schooling and education and assisting. They talk about the different aspects of assisting and gaining knowledge from other places that normally wouldn’t be as obvious. Rob talks about how a quick lunch in his office can often turn into a learning experience and how his years after school moulded him into the photographer he is today. They also touch on portfolios and rob’s personal philosophy behind them.
