Youtuber and photographer Frederik Trovatten has put together a video series called “How to take photos like…” In this particular tutorial below, Frederik gives insight into Joel Meyerowitz’s photographic style and philosophy.
Joel Meyerowitz is a photographic legend, whose career has spanned decades.
