Seems like only a few days ago I was talking about how grateful I was to have talented professional photographers for friends and now there's an article on Edward McCain in the Arizona Daily Star. Writer Doug Kreutz has done a great job capturing Edward's passion for photography and business. (Note: when you click on the link you'll have to register with the paper but it's free!)
There is a show of Edward's photography at Gallery 801 (801 N. Main St., Tucson, AZ) through July 1. (If you live in the area go check it out and report back to me, because while I love Edward I just couldn't even begin to cope with Arizona in the summer—there's a reason I live in Minnesota!)
If, like me, you aren't near Tucson you can enjoy more of Edward's award winning work at his website McCain Photography. Also many of his photos of the above Mission will be featured in a book from the University of Arizona Press. (Check this out in the ADS article.)
I met Edward at the University of Missouri where we were both students. No one has to explain to me "why it's worth having Edward McCain take the picture rather than taking it with your point-and-shoot camera." I think after you take a look at his work you'll understand why too.
