Interview with Tony Sweet

If you could give beginning photographers one tip, what would that be?

Learn everything you can about photography and composition. Master Photoshop. Learn video and Final Cut Pro.

If your house was burning down and you could only save one camera and one lens, what would you grab?

Nikon D3X and 28-300mm lens

Which helps you more: bad photography (so you know what not to do) or great photography (so you know what to strive for)?

You learn from both. Good photography inspires. Weak photography educates.

If you had a book club, what would it be reading and why?

Steve Jobs. Uncompromising in quest for simplicity.

What is a typical day of photography like for you? Do you have a set work schedule? What is your general process?

No set work schedule. Travel March thru October, teaching and lecturing. Home the rest of the time working in the office.

What is the greatest challenge you have had to overcome in your career?

Greatest challenge is to not “chase” other photographers and to stay focused on my own “vision.”

Did you ever regret wanting to be a photographer?


Are you working on any new photography books now?

Yes. My last hardcover book, on composition, and a series of Visual Artistry eBooks.

What is the most overlooked aspect of photography?

The amount of office work it takes to run a photography business.

If you could choose one superhero power, what would it be and why?

to fly.
