Tim

I had the good fortune to photograph Tim a few months before he died! I also took his photo from the ground up! Seeing that majestic icon was one of the highlights of my life! Great stories, David!

Another subpar podcast

Just underwhelming again. It’s strange to think this show is from the same company that does Conflicted.

Terrific accent, very excited

I heard David speak on Tim Ferris’s podcast and his story about capturing that Maradona shot was exhilarating and hilarious. Plus his accent is terrific. Pumped for some more of the same
