Put a hobbyist's photos next to a career professional's and you'll discover a world of difference. Photo hobbyists frequently forget to "tell the story." Career professionals know that it's the story that often makes the photograph.

Look, It's a Chicken by photographer/artist Adam Jahiel makes a humorous statement that made me chuckle when I saw it on his website. He generously offered to let me put it on Chicken Women. Thanks, Adam!

The Last Cowboy by Photographer/Artist Adam Jahiel 
Adam is probably best known for his outstanding Western photography project, The Last Cowboy. For years, he has photographed authentic cowboys in the Great Basin. He magnificently captures their rugged lives, where "talent, knowledge and skill are valued above all else."  If you check out his website, you'll discover photos that'll have you yearning for the Western life. His book, The Last Cowboy, is also sold on his website.

Adam's professional career has included extensive work in the motion picture industry, including on films like Out of Africa (One of my personal favorites. I saw it five times on the screen and have a copy of it on I-Tunes). His photographic adventures include work as the photographer for the French-American 1987 Titanic expedition. His photos have also appeared in many of the most prestigious of U.S. publications, including The New York Times and National Geographic Society, and dozens of published books and galleries around the United States.

Update: 8/28/12- Adam Jahiel's photos and visual story making are showcased in a story in the Huffington Post.
