I love Doug Herr's work, but don't want to spent my time photographing birds or my money buying the kit needed for this. Kyle's work is intriguing (not the pol's), and I wouldn't have access to the people he photographs. Swap or buy, there are some of these images that I'd want that I'd never try to make. If I saw someone who does what I like to do better, I'd do my best to equal them.
