For most of us we choose street photography as a creative outlet, while we follow another pursuit to earn a living. The two endeavors are often kept separate.
But our guest today is doing both. He is combining his passion for street photography with a unique way of self-publishing a series of small books of his own work. This gives him full control over the process and end product. Plus generating revenue.
Vincent Comparetto, is a native New Yorker now living in Denver, Colorado. And after speaking with him, I don’t see how he could do it any other way.
Vincent is a filmmaker, an artist, a former graphic designer and most recently a photographer. His true passion in photography is street photography.
But beyond his artistic pursuits it appears that Vincent does everything in a creative fashion, including travel. And as you will see in our conversation with Vincent he is extremely enthusiastic about everything he does. We should all be so lucky.
So please sit back, grab your favorite beverage, and listen to Ashley and I have a very enlightening conversation with Vincent Comparetto.
