What’s In The Bag? w/ Jim McHugh Part 3: the Hockney Connection

In this segment we begin to explore more of what’s in the life, than what kind of gear is used, although in this crazy photographic world , it all somehow ties together.

Jim McHugh has a long standing relationship with David Hockney, as you can see from this early portrait and some of the others down the line.

In this segment, Jim discusses the influence of this world renown master, plus you’ll get some extra insight into the still images you see here.

We’d like to thank Jim McHugh for sharing some of this portraits, and look forward to the full book of Hockney.

There are more vids with Jim to come, so stay tuned.
