    Ohhh! So Steve McCurry shot the most recent calendar! I heard that this was a departure from the usual Pirelli calendar, and I am glad that Mr. McCurry lead the image making. Hope to see some images from it soon. Thanks!

    How can we get the greatest pic.? Can it create frustration?

    there’s something so powerful about intentional observation… “there’s so much beauty in the world”!

    So interesting to know more about his life and how he approaches his work…please keep up this series! And by the way the shot of the beautiful woman in the red dress was just so stunning!

    This series has been so inspirational! I keep hoping for both of you to talk about the one thing that I wish I could do… to just shoot complete strangers. I would love to follow you both for a couple of days, see how you make that happen… I travel a fair bit, but I am always so shy about shooting people, doing what they do, yet that is the one thing I want the most (my zoom lens is my best friend…).

    Thanks for this series, and thanks for asking such great questions. I’ve wondered about a few of these things myself when I’ve looked at McCurry’s photos, and now I have the answers.

    Thank you for the wonderful interview of Steve McCurry. I felt especially engaged on the first half of this part, part 4, of the interview. I find being in the right frame of mind crucial to capturing a portrait. Though I strive to master the technical, all that takes a back seat to the psychological involvement between myself & the subject.

    It’s great to hear a master put it so succinctly.
