Inspiration / by David Rizzico

Well this quarter, I want to talk about two inspirations, First is Dave Black Sports photographer par excellence his classes on Kelby One gave me the confidence to shoot The US Olympic Trials for Canoe and Kayak held in Charlotte NC at the U.S. National Whitewater Center the weekend of April 8th and 9th 2016.  I hope it shows in the pictures.  The other inspiration were the two professional photographers from the AP and Getty photo services who were covering the event.  They were the most gracious individuals and though I don't remember their names (I'm really bad about that.., and been that way my whole life) they took their time to answer my dumb questions about some of their techniques.  Thank you all.
