Treasure Trove of Resourceful Stories from Professional Women throughout Photography Spectrum

This series continues to connect with the utmost professional women throughout the photography spectrum, just as it’s description notes: from photographers and directors to producers, creative directors, stylists, and assistants. That makes it a treasure trove … you learn from the entire ecosystem. I wanted to see this series as a YouTube channel so we can see more of the work, but sometimes we need just audio and this delivers in a great way. - Bravo! - and thank you, Amy Tierney
