Aaron Berger – Episode 69

“That was at the very end of Thailand, I was just starting to think I didn’t want to play poker anymore and I was starting to be drawn to something maybe a little more creative which I had never done in my whole life…” Aaron Berger taught himself photography by studying the tech specs that are included with photos on Flickr® and looking at photographers such as Garry Winogrand on the internet. His path to photography started with a realization that he was not going to be a professional soccer player which lead to a lucrative career in internet poker and a failed attempt to be a YouTube® star. We talk about how all of this leads Aaron to New York with a point and shoot film camera.
