The Inspiration Behind the Images with Hernan Rodriguez



I love this new series from Tamron USA, because they introduce us to great artists with terrific backstories. It’s those backstories that made me start “Why?” and with each one we’ve learned a little more about the artists. 

Meet Hernan Rodriguez who’s been featured several times here at SCU. He’s a Tamron Image Master and simply a great artist to work with. Hernan and I go back to my early WPPI days and every time we catch up, it’s like the last conversation ended with a comma. As I’ve written many times before, the best thing about this industry is the friendships that come out of everyone’s love for the craft.

There’s a great line about “the eyes being the gateway to the soul.,” which by the way was really Shakespeare’s and went “The eyes are the window to your soul.” Either way, from the moment you hit Hernan’s home page to the images in his portfolio he practices what he preaches. By building relationships with his clients, regardless of how little time he might have, he’s always capturing their personality, most often in their eyes.

With the picture of Evander Holyfield and Muhammad Ali, Hernan’s comment says so much,

                                             ”It was once in a lifetime for me. I could die now and that’s my shot!”  

Tamron USA is creating some serious buzz with this new series, because every one of the featured artists is somebody who should be on your radar. Even more important is the inspiration they bring with each story.

That’s one of the things I love about working with the team at Tamron. They not only manufacture some of the finest glass in the world, but are helping to raise the bar on your skill set with their focus on education – in videos like this along with their tech team on the road throughout the United States teaching, and each workshop/program they sponsor.
