A consistent theme in David Bergman’s work has been his ability to gain access and shoot events in an unconventional manner. He made some of his most famous photographs because he’s willing to take chances using techniques he’s developed over the last three decades.
Join our hosts, Troy Miller and Steve Brazill, as they talk with David for inspiration to take more risks with your photography, while telling the stories behind some of the high-impact images produced during his career as an sports, portrait, and tour photographer for clients including Bon Jovi, Luke Combs, and Sports Illustrated.
