    Awesome!! I just love dixie’s spirit and how cool and calm she is!! She really loves what she does and it shows in her work! I first learned about her here in Toronto when she was a guest at a photography show. I think seeing her really inspired me to learn photography more. Although I am not really interested in fashion, I just love her drive! And Mia was amazing… very intelligent and had great questions!

    Mia, your interviews are getting better and better. I just watched this with Dixie. She’s so at ease with you. I teach old geezer photography. I show them parts of your interviews. We watched Joe McNally explain how sometimes he works through hundreds of exposures to get what he wants. They liked that insight into the photographer’s thought process. We’d like to see you do an hour with Jay Maisel.
