There are not enough stars in the galaxy to adequately express how much I loved this class. Ami Vitale is truly remarkable, both as a photographer and human. Having the opportunity to hear her speak and experience her work is a true treasure for which I'm immensely grateful to CreativeLIVE for sharing with us. Her dedication (and extraordinary talent and ability of) telling important stories, along with her empathy and care for people and this planet is palpable. Her words and work cascade straight into your heart. Thank you for this tremendous opportunity to spend an hour with this legend. Everyone reading this, stop reading and go and watch this NOW!
