An Inspiring Story - Photographer Penny De Los Santos

 The internet is an amazing place. Through the internet - and my Flickr food page - I was today sent a link to Penny De Los Santos's page which then brought me to her blog and the video link here - pennydelossantos live talk.  Penny's presentation starts with her talking about food photography - but it is about much much more than that. 

Photographer Penny De Los Santos takes us from a candlelit dinner table in war torn Lebanon to the grave of a loved one, asking us to stop, connect deeply and take the time to strengthen and honour the bonds between us.

This short video of Penny's talk is inspirational - I encourage you to view it - please click on the link and view her video -click here - Penny Delos Santos 
 When I viewed Penny's video I felt like had been given a gift.


 Penny says"When I walked off that stage after a huge exhale, I realized something: My life, all this work, travel and photography have led me to something far greater than I could have ever imagined. It is far more enriching and fulfilling than just photographing stories and travelling. It’s been an incredible opportunity to encourage people and to remind them to believe to dream and to put one foot in front of the other and just try."

Penny is a professional photographer who specializes in travel, food and people. She is a senior contributing photographer at Saveur Magazine as well as a contributing photographer to National Geographic and other USA based magazines. Her blog is dedicated to her passion for documenting food culture around the world. She has been on assignment in over 25 countries telling those stories.
