"Well, Michael, That's the song. That was so that lyrical we're hearing was really. As I said, I thought to be kind of an anthem of the sixties and the changing nature of generations that applies perhaps to today as well. What's wrong? They're from your perspective. Yes, And it's a song that I think in chapter for their idea of my own and decedent's and first exposures to so much of the song the song which I sang myself, but always at that time with a bit of Self reflection. Does this actually say what I think it says? What it's purported to say. Now that song The Times they are a changing the one verse that you played there on the radio, I think contains perhaps the only line It could not be subscribed to by any hard core right winger as well as the lefty progressive and that one line I think is your sons and your daughters are beyond your command, and everything else in there is so superficial that anyone could subscribe to it. It's really a shoulder shrug of a song. This is happening. That's happening. The Times were changing. Well, which way are they changing? Bob? Tell me something, you know, take a position. On. I think that's a lot of his material doesn't really say much. There's a lot of verbosity there. There's a Longoria, but you're missing. Uh, That eloquently stated pointed view. Some of the times Masters of War is a song that is rather heavy handed. I mean, there's certainly a point of view there, but there's no poetry there. I want to talk with you more about what you don't find in the way of poetry, but also find actually some of the things that you countenance and like and give your approbation for before we do that, Though I noticed, for example, there's a kind of annoyance that you have, particularly with Songs that that's simply fill up space with you go back to the night they boat drove old Dixie down, for example, or brown eyed girl. They all and or hey, do they all have kind of non another shot Nona's or those kinds of things as opposed to lyrics period? Gather that's called a non lexical vocal la la la or even yodeling or a grunt or a sigh in a song non Lexus revokable on the night they drove Old Dixie down, I think is really a very missed opportunity that tremendously missed opportunity. Most most of the songs that I analyzed and used as examples in my book are songs that have been around for a long time. The point is, if you're gonna talk about this kind of stuff first. Find songs that most people are familiar with. I mean, if you talk about stuff by Jason Mraz or Ed Sheeran or Taylor Swift, you've already limited your audience, so they're older songs the night they drove Old Dixie down. Sets up a really interesting situation with the fellow who's singing the song. Virgil Caine is the name. It's second he talks about his lost brother and how the union soldiers have destroyed the railroad that he's working on. And Richmond is gonna fall or has fell as Robertson so illiterate Lee puts it. Richmond had fell, but Because the point of the whole song leading to the chorus the people were singing the Bells were ringing and first off. That doesn't even make sense. Richmond in ruins, the arsenal blown up in an explosion so big that it destroyed two stones a mile away. Crowds of drunken rioters industry all the prisoners escaped. The people are singing the bells were ringing. It's absurd. But even if you granted that what were they singing, Robbie Robertson, give me the catharsis that I'm looking for. From the tremendous setup that you did, they're singing. Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, I've been on that. Not what a dereliction of responsibility. Quite frankly, they're listening duty. I understand your fascination and you're concerned about the inspiration for us. Righteous indignation. Alright and well, in fact, like I want to hear something and get your response, which you also write about in that same vein, and this is Sort of the good and the bad. Get a very well known song. Written by Kris Kristofferson but Song by Janis Joplin, Bobby McGee. Yourself another word on nothing to lose Nothing. That's all My father had me what you want. Isn't that long? One is saying the booze Okay. Good was good enough for me. Good enough for me and my Bobby. Let me know about it. Okay, We're talking to Michael Copy and talking about his book words and music into the future, with song writing, treatise and manifesto and there again, it's a good setup. In fact, I think you love that mine. Love E think It's very evocative. Is it not?.

"On Michael Krasny, author Michael Copy says. We've all been happily singing along to abysmal music lyrics without noticing. In his book words and music into the future, which he calls a treatise and a manifesto. He excoriates the lyrics of even our most beloved songwriters like Bob Dylan and John Lennon and He talks about what makes song lyrics. Great. Welcome, Michael. Copy. Good to have you with us. Thank you, Mr Krasny. And before we go too far, let me just say congratulations to you. I understand you're leaving after a zillion years there. And how many years were you on the earth? Have you been on the earth? I think you got the number right now. It's actually 28 28. It will be 28 Listen to you many times when I live south of market at eighth and mission and always edifying and incisive conversation and congratulations to you. Thinking that today, though, it won't be that today. No, I appreciate the kind words and thank you for them, and I also appreciate your book. There's some real finally it's Jim like essays in here, and there's a lot of well I would call The only food for thought but kind of provocative food for thought. You call yourself a curmudgeon, and that may be appropriate. But I would think of you more as a kind of an iconoclast. You raise some real questions and important questions about lyrics and why they're important and why we should pay it more attention to them, And I thought That's a good place to begin would be with one of those icons that you hit the hardest. Don't pull any punches with, in fact, have a number of really strong haymakers with and I'm talking, of course about Bob Dylan. I mean, you call him all kinds of names, but basically you say he's a plagiarized her Well, yeah, I think he's he's actually well known as the plagiarized her. Let me let me preface this by pointing out so that indeed I call him a lot of names, but there's no very little ad hominem attacks in this book. It's all very substantiated, and I point out specifics. Time and time again. I think it's easy for a critic to say, I don't like this guy. I don't like that gal those people, But if you can't incisively critique the work, that kind of criticism is not very valuable. Yeah, Bob Dylan is well known as a plagiarist largely of traditional songs, which he's mind incessantly for melodies. And also even lyrical blueprints. Of course. What's the song? Uh, well, there's several I can go through. There's a lot of the list there, of course. Let me actually mentioned a couple songs because I was thinking when I was reading your section about Dylan and you mentioned in a few instances of local rock critic named Real Marcus, who has appeared on the foreign program. Uh huh. And hey wrote a whole book about like a Rolling stone and how greatest song it is, and one of the greatest songs of of all of Let's go back. Maybe too early, Dylan because I want to get to response to Line that's been taken almost of an ant as an anthem of the sixties and get your response to it. Let's sometimes they're changing. This is we're going to hear it and I want your pardon me..

"Back in your ear holes. Hello and welcome another episode coming your way by this one's a bit different a little different mixing it up a little bit. I'll tell you want the patron has finally paid off and pat only one of us though pack payoff. We didn't still stuck here. So rather you're stuck listening to us either you really like Goss- or you hate pat or you hate us and you liked pat or not exactly sure how it goes. Yeah but but we're here. He's not deal with. Yes but this week's episode is going to be quite an interesting one. It's a shame that pat wasn't able to be here this week because this is one I feel like he would have some some big thoughts on this. I think all of us really have big thoughts about Ed's digital distribution in games and we could go over all the different types whether it's just like being a game downloadable so that you don't have a physical copy or there's things like game pass and and I think it's that Google Cecilia Stadium. Whatever the something like that since Stevia like a sugar subs know stevie stevie maybe maybe? That's what I'm thinking of. It might be stadium. I'm not sure Google sucralose is Super Google splendor so for me when I when I initially was thinking about it. One of the things that came to mind was the initial distribution of like online games rather than picking up a game in a physical copy. Just going into like the playstation store. Whatever it may be and picking up the game that that way and I have no problem with that in fact I do most of my purchasing that way I would point? There's very few gain physical games. Yeah there's very few that I wanNA physical a copy of. We're actually kind of getting to the point where like the physical copies of the Games are seen as like collector's items now. Yeah like their rocket league in particular they were digitally distributed like it was free on the playstation store it was on steam and then a year and a half after the game came out it. They released a physical Michael Copy. Yeah and that's not the way that things used to be like now the the disc itself as the collector's item. You don't actually play the physical coffee anymore or you just play it you just have it. It's so crazy. 'cause I've been saying that for a wild out When and of course it has to be brought up because because it's an episode of the bad? Rg podcast but when the final part of shoveling comes out I'll get the physical copy of it for the switch. Yes so that I have the physical copy of the treasure trove and all that right right releases but because I had that game on everything. I'll you might as well. I mean I'm pretty rounded out. I'm pretty sure I have it on every single thing. I have it on switch xbox one playstation four three D. S.. I don't think it's on anything else. Now you've probably played on a toaster. I'll get if there's a toaster to play Shovel Knight I'll I buy it all right. Well let's get to Google and I I will buy this. I will buy this toaster so yacht club. If you make this Shovel Knight toaster poster I will buy and also go back and play the game positively. Yeah we're getting that out of the way but what what I find interesting like the whole shift from like physical copies to like the digital distribution kind of represents an interesting shift in the way that that like the industry presents itself so it used to be games were like economically speaking. It was a good model right. You would would. You would buy the game and then you would have it. You would own it and when you got to like I guess world of warcraft kind of started something along those lines where games were less of a goods model and more of a service model where you're you're paying for a subscription. Yeah the like the memo's Mariah the the the starter of that. Yeah and it was a shift from games as a goods to a service model and I and I found that to be kind of an interesting paradigm. I'm shifts because it kind of changed the way that we consume games as well. Oh Yeah Lakeshore and you had like the rise of steam and more recently you have like the epoch store or stations door xbox arcade. There's a hundred of them on the on on the PC. Now and it's just it's too much much like the the idea of this exclusivity. I know this is something that we were going to talk about. But I guess it kind of fits in that kind of fits into this is like oh wow. Wow the epic launcher has exclusive rights to certain games and this one. UBISOFT wants to hold their games on their platform and EA wants to make their platform. A not even I don't even think that includes EA access but just every on every one of them wants to have have their own piece of this. And I just don't understand because from a business standpoint. I'm not sure I understand that completely. Because wouldn't you want at your game to be on the platform that's used by the most people like I understand with epoch. I kind of like what they're doing in the sense of they came out and they were like look we. We want to give more money to the share that they take out of distribution is less than what steam takes out they they give more for money to the actual developer. And I think that's cool but and hopefully that'll cause a shift in steam and steam will change. Yeah they're doing things but other than that like if you're doing it because it's like oh it's our games. Oh man my voice is going to take probably from all the screaming plane. But what All the I don't understand the idea of the exclusivity on your own on your own launcher simply. Because I know as for me as a consumer. I don't WanNa have twenty-five launchers on my computer now got no and I'll be more reluctant to buy the a game for that exact reason. I don't feel like downloading this so I'm not going to and you gotTa have. If you want me to download your launcher. You either have like one game that really pushes pushes it like you. GotTa have that flagship. Like the pig launcher has fortnight. Right and that's a like it or not. It's one of the biggest games in the world right now. So that's that's that's their their vehicle to get the epic launcher on your computer. And then they just give you pop up ads for games. That are free that week. Yeah but as I feel like a big part of the transition away from steam has a lot to do with steam greenlight i. There is a huge. There's a glut of just best poorly made shots games shovel wear games. It's it's would have been deleted of your computer as virus like ten years ago. You're one of your cursor things where you turn your cursor into a bunny but it gives you like this game and you just get rid of the game afterwards. Yeah they're the equivalent of the the old school toolbar that you would add to your PA and it's there's just a massive amount of the minutes. It's a nightmare to slog through. Oh yeah I I agree with you looking for something cheap and interesting. It's you have no context for any of that Shit. Yeah I mean and sometimes I I jump into it like I. I did a stream where I played a game called fat dude simulator and the game was ever remember that. And it's really stupid and it's definitely shovel wear game. Everybody knows what it is is I mean I think pretty much everything that was used in the game is like in like all the assets are in unity. Nothing was made cost them for it was just unity. See that's that's funny and they just made this game but it was just stupid enough that I couldn't help myself you know I'll play but that is a huge problem. Problem is that you got so many games where there's one game. I cannot remember the name of it. It was like this dinosaur game where you well. You're like a It's a first person shooter in your shooting dinosaurs so toroc. Now it's not aura. Remember Tora but when you're playing this game there's like two thousand achievements at every time you shoot something there's just achievements popping up at the bottom like man and I'm like what's the point of this like yeah like it's not an achievement at that point now this is something that you do but On on top of that you've got a game. That's bad with this false sense of accomplishment. Yeah I don't know that anybody actually believes. There's here's an accomplishment with it but still gives us idea people like if you're one of those people like if you're achievement hunter and you care about that kind of thing like when when you see people who play that game and have two hundred achievements all of a sudden you're like like it just busy work at that point you might as well just be filing shit. Exactly there's so many games like that though that just like if we were to sit there and go onto steam right now and just look at any of it. Now I'll say part of the problem with the digital distribution that has bothered me. Is You know. Steam the steam greenlight in the early access access can be a major problem because the one example I always go back to was arc. Survival of all the Dinosaur dinosaur game And the reason I go to it is not because it was a bad game because it wasn't that bad but it was incomplete and before they finished the game they already came out with a thirty dollar deal. See like how is that they call in any way that you're gonNA come out with. DLC FOR A game. That's not finished. I that's I mean I have issues with Early access anyway like there are very few games that I feel have done it. Well like the first. My first like major experience with an early access game was probably Pudgy. Guy There may have been one or two before that but that was the first one that I really got into and they did end up releasing a full version. I'm pretty sure fortnight isn't still in early access. Yeah it's two years old but it's still an early access that's crazy to me. That's why it might not be. I'm not sure I don't pay that much attention. Yeah I I don't play it anymore. I played it for a very short period of time. There's there's there's a balance balance to be struck with the early access like you kind of want to get your gate like a game. I think did it well at a or is doing it well and we talked about this. A couple of weeks ago was risk of rain into absolutely they have a solid like core structure of what they want the game to be and they have a plan for how they want it to evolve during the early access period and they have a scheduled release date. Yes they have a scheduled release date they have a roadmap to content that they want to add and they know what it is they they want to do. So you know what to expect as the consumer as as a Gamer you know how it is. They're they're going to work on this and I feel like that's that's a good weights at to handle something like that whereas with Like you said with Arc evolved arc survival evolved they came out with DLC before the game came out yeah you're paying for additional additional content while the full content isn't there and the just that says to me like you could. It's still an early access. You haven't released the game and yet why not just put that shit in there and make that part of the game. It's Comey. I I agree it. It's predatory in in every sense of the word like it's predatory in every sense of the word it's along the same lines as announcing DLC before a game comes out right like you. The fallout four. I think did did. They announced three D. L. C.'s. Dark souls three. Yeah dark souls. Threes sucks don't don't ask me But they announced three D. L. C.'s. Before the game even came out. And it's like why are they not in the game like delay. I would rather other you delay the production and figure out a way to work that into the game as opposed to just trying to sneak into my wallet for more money well. Here's here's a a devil's advocate point. That I would like to bring up and get your opinion on. Because I've had this discussion a couple of times on streams is would you be okay with games like for example a lot of these developers are saying you know the reason they do. The Mike transactions reason they do the DLC the reason they do this sure that is because the cost of games has not raised in like twenty years. Would you be okay with a cost bomb for games. If it meant that you would get the complete game without the DNC and the thing with Gamers is. We are notoriously fickle consumers. We don't know what we what that's true..

"And now back to the mentors where remarkable CEO's challenge. Your thinking about life and business. Welcome back. I'm Tom Lauria hosts for today. My guess mentor is Michael Kalemie one of our nation's preeminent portrait photographers, and we've been talking about the work. He's done with Saint Mother Teresa Saint John Paul the second, George Bush, and others and. We were talking just before we went to break about by Angelo. And you had quite a relationship with her. Really? I did I. Taking pictures. That's right. I did. And that happens oftentimes with some clients of mine, in fact, with Dr Angelo, I met her when I had photographed her with alleyways L when I photographed both of them for my book architects piece back before the year two thousand and Houston Vitus over to her house for thanksgiving's in North Carolina, and she would make these fabulous dinners, and you know, I oftentimes think of of some of her sayings, and I was there present when she won the medal of freedom and receive that at the White House, and that was quite an extraordinary moment to witness with her. But she said that, you know, people will forget what you said. No, forget what you did. But they'll never forget how you made them feel and it's such a true observation of all of us. What's really important in our relationships? Certainly. I'll never forget. How she made us feel my wife, and I and our family how she made us feel so welcome at thanksgiving and not only her fabulous cooking. But also, you know, that comradery that deep friendship. We'd oftentimes go around her long dinner table afterwards and play word games, which in any other circumstance would be quite daunting to play a word game with my Angelo. But she loved board games and different types of games. And we always had so much fun and laughter around her house, and what other people that you will have specialists, you Robert Redford. I would say that I got to know Redford through the years, in fact, that brings to mind a funny story told me that he oftentimes loves making the dry d lives now in Napa loves making the drive from Napa to Sundance Utah. And there was a day that he was driving, and it was a very warm day. So he said he'd stopped to get an ice cream. It was probably a Baskin Robbins ice. Cream with the mirrored background and he walked in. And there was a woman in front of him that even though Redford was wearing glasses certainly recognize. That's Robert Redford behind me. So she ordered her ice cream and ran out of the store, and he was ordering his ice cream in this. Same woman came running back with the hand full of change saying to the cashier. You know, I have my change. But I forgot my ice cream and Redford had to tell her well apparently she had put the ice cream face down in her purse. But he's a wonderful guy. Also, it's hard for me to imagine he and his eighties because he he's always youthful individual. But I was blessed to photograph both he and Paul Newman, and they had quite an interesting funny relationship back and forth with each other. They used to play pranks on each other. And I remember another time read for telling me that he had one of his sports cars compacted and sent to Newman's house as lawn furniture. And of course, this went back and forth with each other to the point where Redford was waiting at home and saw this big semi truck coming and loading offloading box after box after box. And certainly he went out to the driver and said, I'm not expecting any kind of delivery and open up one of these boxes and realized that it was coming from Westport Connecticut, which of course, was Paul Newman Thome, and he opened up the box, and it was toilet tissue with Redford's face on each cheek. As far as I know they never fessed up to one another that they were pulling these kind of pranks on each other. But he has a wonderful sense of humor. And really I would say Tom in terms of my life as a photographer. It's been as it is with most of us business people. It's all about the relationships. I don't go back and really think that was a great photograph or I don't really come back. And celebrate the photographs as much as I do with the deep relationships that I was able to afford with many of these people this is Tom law. You're listening to the mentors radio today. We're speaking with Michael copy one of our nation's preeminent portrait, photographers. So what would you give what advice would you give a sixteen year old that would like to pursue a career in photography like you follow in your footsteps? Well, I would be very very. Forthright and trying to have them pursue it. You know, I wouldn't be negative in any way because I really go back to those years of Ansell and Richard avid on and even my father who is an artist really paving the way of of going into this particular field. Even though it's a lot more difficult. Now, everybody has a cell phone. Everybody has a camera, and it's a lot more difficult to find those particular jobs that are paying, but I do believe that they're out there. And I think it's all about passion and inspiration and going back to that conviction that I talked about earlier, I think that if you possess those three things you have that recipe to be able to be successful. And it's about really working hard. And you get some lucky breaks along the way, I certainly made a tremendous amount of mistakes. And I oftentimes reflect on some of those worst mistakes that I've made and continue tell us about one of them. Well, I remember. I can tell you many. But one in particular, I had a job at a college which was great because it was a retainer job. So it provided money throughout the whole month. Where for a photographer that was a great thing. And it turned out that I'll it had to do on this one particular night was to photograph the college president, I happen to be a woman her husband and a very famous artist who was a sculpture artist world renown who had an opening at the particular college gallery, and he was a ceramic artist. So he had a lot of his installations that were positioned on the ground and some on the wall, and I felt like since the place was just completely packed with critics and news media. I thought I'm going to do this very quick what we would call us, photographers, grip and grin shot and get out of there for the night. So I figured you know, as soon as she walks in. I'm in a photograph for against this particular piece that I liked and then take this portrait and walk out. And so she came. I'm in with her husband, and she gave her spent quite a talking to as to who. I was and kind of built me up as being this person that I definitely am not. And so I figured you know, I'll squeeze them in I was shooting with a wide angle lens. And you know, how that is. If it's somebody who's a little bit, overweight, if you have a wide angle lens, and you have them too close to the edges. They're going to look twice as large. So I kept telling them to come in a little bit tighter. And as I was stepping back to fit them in the frame. I walked right into one of his pieces and broke. My I broke my fall with my camera in his ceramic piece. So to this day, Tom, I don't know how I actually got out of that particular room because I know all the attention were rate to my face. And I thought over the weekend. I thought you know, here I am I've lost that job. I've lost a retainer. What am I gonna do and supporting my wife and kids, and I went back to apologize to the college. President. And I said I was very sorry for what happened and she said, well, that's okay. I really didn't care for his work in. So it doesn't always end that way. Well when we come back. I'm going to ask you a question about the change in the landscape for photographers over time. My guest mentor today is Michael copy. We'll be back in a minute. After the break like us on Facebook. At the metro News Radio dot com. We'll find Oliver show notes links at mentors radio dot com.

"Of celebrities and served as a personal photographer for Saint Teresa of Calcutta. So you got inspired. This still seems that building a business and photography would have a great deal of uncertainty attached to it. How did you go about getting started from a business standpoint who helped you along the way who help you think through all of that? Well, I have to say it does involve a lot of faith. And it involves a lot of blind faith, Tom in regard to taking that step forward and being immersed in that sort of inspiration to always go forward and to continually finding personal projects. I have to say with all of us that can be called in some ways successful. It always comes as a result of other people. And I was very fortunate when I was twenty one years old to meet Frank Sinatra, and I met him just by chance and a small theater over in Saint Carlos called the circle star theater about six years later. I ended up doing photography for him. And he used to love telling stories backstage, and he would often times tell me say kid live. Each day as if it's your last because one day, you'll be right now when I was in my twenties, I felt like well, I'm only one bad picture away from being dumped in the bay with cement shoes. But he was very kind and he ended up. Introducing me to a lot of his friends, and I ended up doing a lot of photographing a lot of musicians some of the rat pack, and certainly some friends like Ella. Fitzgerald lies Manelli. Paul Anka, the list goes on and on and I really site Sinatra being somebody who was very instrumental in terms of bringing me forward in the business and introducing me to his friends if he'd like to he was very loyal, and very helpful. In fact, one of his daughter said in his lifetime. I think he gave away about a billion dollars in charity in his not in his name. He always kinda kept his name out of it. But I would say that he was probably the most instrumental as a young person getting started. And then it was really my inspiration to seek out individuals. That were changing the world that were making. Difference in the world that really inspired me. And that really led me to meeting Mother Teresa. This is Tom Laura. You're listening to the mentors radio show. We're speaking with Michael copy one of our nation's must treasured assets and preeminent, photographers. So you're on this journey. Frank Sinatra really put you up on the radar screen. And you said you then I'm going to ask questions. So how does it work with commissions some somebody now seeking you? They just call you up and say like to have you take my picture or? Yeah. I think over at Safeway. Make it work all of those ways. In fact, I think it's the best thing for a young business person is word of mouth, and once you get a reputation of taking a picture of somebody than the word spreads. And I think in the early years even to this day. I don't have an agent representing me. It's really word of mouth. It's it's one by one somebody says something, you know, it's actually a smaller kind of world than we all think. But I think it was it was mostly recommendations that led me to other people and certainly inspiration. Again, you can go back to sort of our path our path in life. Spiritually based that leads you to certain people that change your life. So now somebody calls you up they want you to do a picture. What is the process you? Go spend time with them a day to take three days. What does it take before you finally get them to sit down and start shooting? Or did you take a lotta pictures over time? But it just depends. You know, I feel that I can pretty much take a a portrait within moments. And in fact, you lose somebody if it's goes too long. There are people out there that like being photographed I think for most of us, including myself, we don't like being photographed. So it's it's a challenge. And I think to make that process very easy to make it very personal as you know, it is a personal kind of process one on one. I'm not I don't consider myself to be necessarily a photo journalist. I enjoy that process of taking a portrait of somebody which means to really sit down face to face and getting to know that person. And it goes back to some of the early things that Richard avid on. On top me in regard to certainly in our digital age. You know, we're oftentimes behind the camera. I think as often as we can to be able to put that camera on a tripod. So that we can be face to face with the subject the results would be far better because they'd be much more realistic. So you reminded me of my my children who didn't like to add before to graft a lot they say oh dad, you could do it again. That's right now that they have children. I think they have a cameras one of their appendages they wherever they go. They're taking pictures. I mean, it's kind of funny how the whole thing evolves. But what I'll have to do next time. Take a tripod when I shouldn't tell him. I wanna. Put the cell phone on a unattractive. So you've been you've been out. Thinking about people you want to photograph and one of them was Mother Teresa, how did you meet Mother Theresa? How did that story of all? Well, I saw a movie when I was in high school. I went to a local high school here Serra high school over in San Mateo. And I saw movie called something beautiful for God. That was done by Malcolm, Muggeridge that very much inspired me to know more about her at that time in nineteen seventy six it was before she won the Nobel peace prize. It was before she really was world famous, but she was famous enough to be out there on film and books. So I really immersed myself to find out more about her five or six years later. I heard she was coming to the cathedral speak. I had friends that worked for the archdiocese that said they'd leave a seat up front. So I ended up walking in late. I went down through the basement of the cathedral. And as soon as I went down through the basement stairs. She was right in front of me walked up to me as if we were meant to meet and invited me to come back to her house. The next morning. To see her particular mission her novitiate that she was establishing in San Francisco. And as soon as I rang the doorbell she said, I'm so happy you're here because you're gonna drive me around to my appointments today. So that's how we got to know each other. So when you met her what was the first thing that struck you about her presence. Well, I would say that first of all physically she was quite small. She was about four foot eleven had very large hands and misshapen feet in Dole's that almost look like tree roots. Very warm penetrating is greenish blue eyes that were quite penetrating, very lovely, and laughing and funny and incredibly personable, I really noticed immediately Tom that humility that she possessed and that ability to see the face of God and people that she encountered in her life. Being completely selfless. And she. I mean, one of the things that I I've seen her a number of videos and everything and she was a. To me. She's a great story for people that seek power and money in this world because she was one of the most powerful people in the world when she passed away. That she owned nothing. That's right. And she ran on. All she does is run a not all but she had her sisters. That's right. That is to me. The amazing story about Mother Teresa incredible. It was that combination of deep conviction and deep humility, and it was truly going back to love at the center of her particular existence. She never saw herself as a social worker. She saw herself as being the spouse of Jesus, and she was going to spread that particular love throughout the world. And it didn't matter what religious person she was in front of whether it was the Hindu Muslim didn't matter what religious conviction that individual had. She was going to spread love to the world and through that individual. I once asked her did she ever get tired of the suffering that she encountered and the individuals who are suffering. And she said, you know, I can only love one person at a time. I can only serve one person at a time. So that's how I go about doing my work one by one. So there's great lessons for all of us, regardless of our walk. Of life. We we're gonna take a break. And when we return we're gonna continue with Michael copy, one of our nation's premium portrait, photographers as he shares lessons learned from working with saints.

"I commissioned portraits of hundreds of public figures, including world leaders such as Saint Pope, John Paul the second Saint Teresa of Calcutta Mikhail Gorbachev and Margaret Thatcher to entertainers like Ella. Fitzgerald, Mick Jagger, BB king Luchino Pavarotti. His architects of peace project is permanently exhibited at the national civil rights museum. Marquette university, the Hoover institute archives at Stanford and university in Mexico City and Santa Clara university while self taught his early mentors included Ansel Adams, and Richard Avedon. Welcome michael. And thank you for the honor of your time. Let's get started with your early interesting. Photography and your interactions with Ansel Adams and Richard Avedon. We'll Tom first of all it's a pleasure to be here with you. And when it got out of college, I went to Saint Mary's college, just like my father, and I thought I was going to go into the graphic arts field, and I had a really difficult time. Trying to find something creative creative job that would really be inspiring. And it was at that time that I saw an exhibit of Ansel Adams work at the Oakland museum that greatly inspired me. In fact, I was mesmerized by his pictures of Yosemite valley and somebody at the gallery had told me that answer lived in Carmel. So that very next Monday morning. I called four one one information up for a listing on Ansel Adams and sure enough he was listed. I made the phone call. He picked up the phone and invited me to come down. And that's how I got into photography was learning for Mansell himself. And what intrigued you at first? What was it the catcher, Pat, I think it was really the. The sense of black and white the clarity the sharpness the dramatic nature of of the pictures that he took and it was really just stunning. It was almost an epiphany moment for me to view, his photographs and certainly of Yosemite, which was always a favourite family vacation of ours. And you know, something that I was very familiar with. But to see those particular pictures, Tom was just so inspirational to me, and then to meet him was really quite extraordinary. And I really go back to those days thinking that that was really paving the road for me getting into in fact, there are some things that I learned for Mansell that still stick with me today such as the idea of provisional ization, which is almost a faith filled sort of message to visualize in my world to visualize the final picture before you even take it. But that could be applied to anything in business in a way to have that kind of conviction at your heart. Along paired with inspiration and hard work that must be a gift though. I when you talk about visualization being a part-time golfer. Visualization visualization is a big deal and coughing where you can see the ball landing on the green. And so on you hear the pro golfers talk about it a great deal. But I'm trying to imagine what it would be like to visualize a photograph before you've even put it together. And I also do a little oil painting. And I know that in whether it's a photograph or an oil painting. There's a number of problems that have to be solved one is the composition. Values curse black and white such. I've never worked in black and white or maybe talk a little bit about first of all let me stop you right there because I can totally identify with my golf game in the same way, it free virtualization doesn't translate to my golf game either. But I have to say it is almost like a faith based type of precept in terms of provincial association. I choose black and white more often than color, just because I think it strips away the distractions of color, so black and white for me is is much more powerful. In terms of going rate to the subject rate to that emotion bigger trying to translate in terms of photographing somebody, and I would say that there's always a bit of a disconnect with somebody that you meet in person that you might see on the screen or on the stage say it's an entertainer. There's always a little bit of a disconnect when you meet them face to face because their three dimensional and they look different in person. There may be some. Some characteristic that you pick up in person that you didn't notice before. So those things you take into account very quickly. And in regard to provision ation. I would say that probably most of my most favorite photographs were visualized before I even met the individual. So it may be somebody well known that for the most part is a lot of my subjects. They're very well known. So for me, it's very easy to do some research ahead of time. But I would say that I have a notion of the lighting what type of side of the face. I'm gonna light. I what side would go into shadow how I would pose that individual in a way that's going to be natural. But what's most important is really bringing across that particular emotion to make it real. I would never come into a situation with somebody and say tell me cheese or say some particular word back to me just to try to enlighten them in some way to bring across. Promotion that way. I would always want to have a conversation with them face to face with them sitting across the table is if you and I were talking even now and tried to pull out certain emotions in the face. That would be a characteristic of your personality, and how did Richard Avedon across your path will you know, after years of working with Ansel Adams. I really learned. I had a great aptitude of what it took to make a good composition and a good execution of of a photograph. In other words, a good exposure something that was well lit something wasn't underexposed or overexposed. But I realized after years of working with him. There was no way that I was going to be making a living doing nature photography. So I had always been interested in people. So I was very drawn to meet with Richard Avedon on it wasn't as easy as picking up the phone and calling Ansel Adams. It took me a couple of weeks to get a short meeting with him at a studio in New York. But that was really the epitome moment I needed to come back and to be fully immersed in being a portrait photographer. He talked to me a lot about the psychology. Gee that exist between subjects so in other words, really being face to face with that subject as I was saying earlier in terms of pulling out different types of emotions that are really true expressions of that individual as opposed to trying to manipulate the situation. Well, I know that I am an amateur photographer. Like everybody is today now with the smartphone. I guess everybody's taking pictures, but there are certain pictures take of people, I know, and when I see them I really feel good because I feel I really capture who they are. And it would seem to me that when you're doing portraiture that this intimacy emits a very intimate medium, certainly and getting to know them as extremely important to capture them on film. You just don't snap a picture. But you're from what I just heard you say, you're you've already envisioning how you want to shoot this. Maybe you can let us amateurs in a little bit more. What you do to get yourself prepared for the really good little. I always tell people that being a good photography photographer. It's much more about being a good psychologist as opposed to being somebody who's technically well versed or somebody who's going to be good at lighting all those kinds of things can come into play and enhance a picture. But if you don't have the essence of of some particular trait in an individual, then it's all for not. So I really think in terms of of exploring somebody it's a matter of being curious about that individual fortunately in my world. There's a lot of information on the people of the subjects that I photograph. So it's very easy for me to do some research. If it's somebody that I don't know I'm inherently curious about that individual, and I'll ask them questions and soon that space is sort of dispelled to the point that we're just talking face to face. That's great. And we're gonna come back and talk some more about not only the business of photography and how you've built your business. But also about some of the joys you've had along the way we need to take a break. And when we return we'll continue with Michael copy one of our nation's premier portrait,.

This is an outstanding beginning as far as I'm concerned to justify Jennifer. What made you decide to watch the hearing today? I feel compelled I've been horrified by. I do believe that Trump is a tyrant. And I think it is a great day to see an open forum discussion of the horrendous. This. How disturbing it was you watch. Did you get all your questions answered today? Jennifer. Was there anything that? Either side did not ask that you wish had been brought up. I think this is really just beginning. I didn't expect this to be a thorough hearing aside. I do think that it certainly paves the way I I do believe this is beginning of his hand. And with great released. Tasha Jennifer, I appreciate you calling in. Thanks very much for talking to us. Let's keep going on the phones in Montclair, California Alice is on the line. Hey there. Thank you for calling in. What did you make of today's hearing? Well, you know what I think of it. The Michael Cole. He shouldn't have said those words to my because a lot, but he is the president of the United States. Donald J Trump. That's my president. I think she should go to jail mother Cohen will he is going. He's going to prison for three years. Because the way he's talking right now. Like now. Yeah, he should go to. But I think he might not pretend not worth and also of lying to congress Alice. Clearly, you're very fired up about what he said. But are you concerned at all that maybe anything that Michael Cohen said might have been true that the president might have committed any crimes at all. He he hasn't committed. No klein's. That's my pleasure. He hasn't committed client. And and he's a he's a comment, and and know what not no comment. Maybe my Cohen is maybe he is maybe maybe he should talk about the pleasant like that. Maybe he is fair enough. The car. Maybe by two colon is a comment for enough Alice. Thank you very much for calling in. I should say that quite a bit of the hearings did focus on Michael Cohen's credibility, especially the questioning from House Republicans, Mr. Cohen. Everything's been made of your lies in the past. I'm concerned about your lives today. Pathalogical liar. You don't know truthfully from truth from falsehood? Is my question is was it exhausting. Keeping track of all the lies. You're telling all these people those were Republican congressman, Mark meadows of North Carolina. Paul gosar of Arizona and Kelley Armstrong of North Dakota. And then we got a pause in a minute, Molly. But definitely there was some very strong sentiments, basically for the analysis of this country throughout the entire mainstream of the Republican questioning basically trying to paint Michael Cohen is entirely uncritical. Yeah. I mean, if there were incredible. Sure, if there were any doubt that this Republican now minority in the house is wholly devoted to protecting the president as much as they possibly can which there shouldn't really be any doubt after the last congress. But if there were quickly put it to rest from the very beginning trying to use any kind of procedural tactic to call up the hearing altogether and then spending the entire day. And as Michael Cohen pointed out at one point not so interested in what Trump actually did very interested in whether Michael copy believed more in a moment with Molly ball of time, David Graham of the Atlantic. And Jeffrey Rosen of the national constitution center coming up. How many times did Mr. Trump ask you to threaten an individual or entity on his behalf? A few times fifty times more a hundred times more two hundred times more five hundred probably more of your questions and thoughts in a moment. I'm Joshua Johnson. And you're listening to one A from W A, M, U and NPR. K Q E traffic.

I'm calling from New York, and I feel sad for the government workers that are getting a paycheck. But I remember in New York the same thing happened to us. After thirty years of being a public servants. You know, I'm retired. Now, I'm suffering. My medical costs seven hundred fifty dollars a month. It's sad. And I do support the war. But I think the Democrats and Republicans should find out what's going on in South America. I think we should find out why these people are running, of course, they're running because of the drugs. The drugs are ruining this world. Specially America South America, North America. I support. Well, I'm sorry for the government shutdown, and I think it needs to stop. And I think the Democrats after all the years of being an office never did anything. These people have been fouling any a free years. I'm okay, okay. Terrorists here from our government workers line. Ronald where are you calling from? Raleigh North Carolina. Okay. You're on the air. Thank you. Well as a federal employee. I just wanted to say that I've been through many of these shutdowns, and I support our president. I support what he's doing to protect our country. I think all of this. Is a lot to do with people's feelings instead of having feelings, I look at the facts look at the facts of how many people are coming across the border, our southern border illegally bringing drugs and everything else. Look at the cost that we're spending now only cetera level, but your local level as well. And that goes for every state because every state pays for these individuals once they're into our country because once they're in there dispersed across the country in every state just about and it's costing United taxpayers. Look at our safety. Look at the issues safety first. Our economic second. And what we're doing to help American people, and we are a nation that brings in more immigrants legally than any other country. So from a federal standpoint from a federal employee standpoint as myself, I support our president. And I bet his decision, and I hope he gets the job done.

Thank you for taking my call. I wanted to comment on the wall and first of all gentleman ask about the see through. Well, the reason they did that is because the border patrol patrol. Ask them to because they wanted to know be able to see the people on the other side of the well know what they're doing. They're like, maybe not bringing up payloads of bombs or something. The other thing is without a wall. There is no hope to secure our border. We could manage it.
