Theron Humphrey | This Wild Idea

Point Park Photography students were treated to an artist talk by Theron Humphrey last night in the photography labs.

Theron is traveling all 50 states this year to work on his comprehensive portrait of American life in 2011.

In addition to talking about the people he has met along the way, the photographs he has made of them, and the ups and downs of making it as a professional photographer, Theron also stressed the need to be passionate and heartfelt about what you do in life. Humphrey stated that "if your heart isn't in it, if you don't totally love photography, you need to get out. There's no room for people that are only halfway into it."

Take a look at his work and follow his travels across the country:
