From The Pros

Albert Watson’s Iconic Career

“I love photography it’s a deep passion” – Albert Watson

“You come in as a professional, and you’re polite and respectful to everybody. That’s one of the good tips. You should treat everybody well you know. It doesn’t matter if you’re photographing a porter in a market in Marrakech or you’re photographing the king of Morroco. You have the same sympathetic approach to everybody. You be nice to everybody, basically.” – Albert Watson
