Will Crockett is a photo innovator and web TV personality. He has more than 30 years as a commercial photographer with clients like Pfizer, Boeing, Hewlett Packard, Cadbury, United Airlines, TIME magazine, and the US Pentagon.

Crocket is also the man behind DiscoverMirrorless.com and ShootSmarter.com as well as a prototype test shooter for many camera manufacturers. [His early reviews were the main reason why I ended up buying a Panasonic GH3 camera to shoot my in-person interviews with.]

During my interview with Will Crockett we cover a variety of topics such as: how and why he fell in love with photography; hybrid photography and the end of the DSLR; the benefits of mirrorless cameras; amazing features of future products coming to market the next 6 to 12 months; the proliferation of cameras and monitors and the impact thereof; intelligent resolution, face detection and face recognition; 3D imaging; future of professional photography; copyright and social media…

My favorite Crockett quote that I will remember from our conversation is:

Think what people want and let’s go give it to them. Not what we can do and try and sell it to them.
