Shantanu Starrick embarked on an interesting photo project. Coined "Pixel Trade," Shantanu travels from household to household to photograph people in exchange for food and shelter. Upon exploring his website, one can see lots of inspiring work that shows Shantanu's versatility as a photographer.
We emailed Shantanu, and asked him a couple of questions about the project and the logistics of it.
David Ziser is a famous wedding photographer who regularly lectures on the craft.
