Dr. Paul Hetzel wasn't always a landscape & nature photographer. He retired from a medical oncology practice in Springfield, MA, and found his second calling.
He and I talked about the power of printing one's own photography and how he has found a wonderful group of fellow photographers in the Photo Arts Xchange, an event hosted by Connecticut photographer, Steve Sherman.
Another important point that Dr. Hetzel makes in our chat is the importance of looking in one's own backyard for “travel” photography. In other words, you don't have to travel too far to make great photographs.
What challenges Dr. Hetzel the most as a photographer? What can make or break an image? Listen to the podcast below to find out!
