You may know Dave Black for his 30 plus years of award-winning sports photography in such publications as Sports Illustrated, Time, Newsweek and the award-winning TV show Sports Century on ESPN. Dave has covered everything from the NFL, NASCAR, The Masters to 12 Olympic Games. Now we get to know more of Dave’s story and what a fantastic person! You don’t always find his level of gift (wrapped in humility, humor, and sweetness). I’m so glad I was given the opportunity to have this front row seat and hear his stories first hand. If you have a minute, I encourage you to head over to KelbyOne.com and give it a listen. If you’re like me, you’ll find yourself smiling later as you think back on the gentle way Dave shares his inspiring stories.
Thank you, Dave, for being so awesome and open with us.
I wasn’t expecting to be doing an interview series, it wasn’t on my radar (or I doubt anyone else’s in the building) but a few month’s ago Mike Kubeisy called my husband and said he thought we ought to start an interview series that focused more on the photographer’s and instructor’s personal side but the surprise suggestion he threw in at the end of the conversation was that he thought I should be the one to do it. I think my husband said something along the lines of, “There’s no way she’ll say yes.” Hahaha! My husband’s response made total sense because it did take him five years to get me to record an iPhone class, but for some reason, the thought of just sitting with someone and listening to them tell their stories hit me just right at just the right time, and I said, “Yes.” We picked my husband up off the floor, and “The Personal Side” series was off and running.
Yesterday we released The Personal Side of Tim Wallace and if there is any way you can go and watch this interview I ask that you do just that. During Tim’s interview I had to remind myself to breathe. His story is beautiful, inspiring, humbling and in the end, quite obvious that Tim is Batman. (I’m only half kidding.) It was my great pleasure and honor to be there and to be a part of this interview. I am grateful for how much he shared with all of us. Thank you, Tim. (aka, Batman)
