First, here's my interview with Mike Greenfelder:
Q: How old were you when you first started taking pictures?
A: I began in high school, but I didn't get really serious until I was 27.
Q: How did you get interested in photography?
A: I got really interested in underwater photography when I worked on Catalina Island and wanted to try to photograph the kelp forest there.
Q: What are you most interested in taking pictures of and why?
A: Wildlife in action interests me most since for me it's a challenge capturing something running, jumping, flying or swimming.
Q: Do you have any favorite photo tips?
A: You need to learn your camera and what all the buttons do and then practice, practice, practice. There are pictures to be taken anywhere, at home, at school, in your backyard.
Q: How did you get to be such a good photographer?
A: Practicing and being in great places and spending the time to take the photos. For example, if you want to get great pictures of whales, you can't just take a one-day whale watch, you need to spend days and days with the whales.
Q: Did you go to school to become a photographer?
A: I didn't go to any special school for photography. I learned from my friends and from experimenting on my own.
