Navy Guest Speakers

Photography has the ability to conform to all branches of life and today we had the chance to see the work of Navy photographers and hear their experiences as navy photographers.

I never thought that photography and the Navy would be a pair, but then again cameras and phones seemed like a funny combination at the start as well. Surprisingly enough both Ben Lewis and Arthur Marquez both started off in the Navy with other interests. Ben’s experience with photography started off with videos, in which he learned how photos could take the emotion behind a story or moment and capture it in a single frame. Arthur had began his career in the Navy as a diver and then crossed over to underwater photography.

In both of their experiences they hadn’t realize show much photography would have an impact on them. It’s inspiring to see that these photographers found their success in photography in different ways. Even more so it’s relieving to know that even photographers with years of experience still feel like they have a lot to learn, to me it conveys that this skill is an ongoing learning process that can always start but doesn’t have to end.
