In April MVS visited the College of DuPage to give a lecture and meet with the college’s photography students. While there, she met with her good friend Jeff Curto to do an interview for his program, Camera Position: A Podcast About the Creative Side of Photography.
The interview was extensive, full of great information, and posted in a five part series over the past few weeks; the last installment will be posted on Monday, June 11th. You can listen to all four parts of the interview for free at CameraPosition.com:
