I met a photographer on Tinder: Talking with Drew Cornwall
Sarah is spending her summer in Maine interning at a gallery; with limited time and connections, she turns to Tinder to help her find friends in this beautiful state. In episode three Sarah travels to Rockland, ME to meet Drew Cornwall, photographer and current teaching assistant/instructor at Maine Media Workshops + College.
As a visual artist, Sarah understands the value of having high quality images of her work but she hardly knows a thing about the field of photography. The two artists sit down to discuss how Drew came to be a photographer, his mixed bag of jobs, and his affiliation with Maine Media Workshops + College.
Hiring a photographer can be intimidating and expensive; here Sarah seeks perspective from someone behind the lens.
