Dear Apple Campus Lectures:

Thanks for The Photography Tour you sponsored at The Ohio State University on April 10. I especially appreciated that the bulk of the program was devoted to a presentation by a professional photographer who uses Aperture. Steve Simon hit the sweet spot, using Aperture to good effect for his presentation, pointing out particularly valuable features of the program, but placing most of his emphasis on talking to fellow photographers about photography.

Simon’s talk was inspiring. By themselves, the individual photos were technically masterful and aesthetically breathtaking, and Simon’s ability to recognize and capture compelling human stories in a photo essay was as unique as the stories were moving. I also appreciated his generous, frank, and funny stories about his efforts to establish himself as a professional documentary photographer. You are fortunate to have him as a partner on The Photography Tour.
