David Holloway is one of the most interesting humans I know.  He just happens to also be a phenomenal photographer too.  I first met Dave when we were both journalism students at Arkansas Tech University in the early 90's.  Since then he's traveled the world taking photos for the biggest publications in the United States and spent extensive time working with everyone from Jane Goodall to Anthony Bourdain.  As you'll soon find out, he's also a never ending fountain of interesting stories and this podcast is hopefully the first of many future episodes with him.  Of all his attributes, my favorite thing about him is that I get to call him my friend.  Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you the one and only David Scott Holloway.
