The first episode of Close Focus, Will sits down with Sam Shimizu-Jones. Sam talks about how he first got into photography, his first job, and why he leaned into video for work and photography as a hobby.

Sam tells the story of shooting Llamas in South America, traveling around the world with a famous band, and why he switched from a Nikon camera system to a mirrorless Sony system. He also goes into detail about one of his more recent instagram posts and what his artistic thoughts were behind it. No bags of rice were discussed.
