Michael Shiffler (07.05.17, 12:13 PM): @Mary- Its a long, long story, but suffice it to say I started getting into photography after some friends asked me to shoot their wedding. The picture turned out great and it just went from there. I was very lucky to have that opportunity at the time. I talk about it a bit in the book as well as future podcasts. Thank you for your question!

Mary Minier (07.05.17, 11:24 AM): Just read through your first Podcast and your Bio. I'm wondering how you got from an "almost PhD in Developmental Genetics" to being a wedding photographer. Your photographs are beautiful and I'm trying to learn as much as I can, but there seems to be something missing - other than the photography has allowed you to travel extensively. Your new book "The Efficiency Playbook" will certainly be more telling of your schooling.
