Photography Between Air Force Missions with Tom Wagner

This week we get to know Tom Wagner, one of the new “Latitude Regulars” that will be joining me from time to time. I’m thrilled to have him here talking about life in the US Air Force and some of the photography experiences he’s been afforded because of it. Also, I’ve got a bit of a personal story to share after the interview with Tom so please stay tuned after that for this special little tidbit I’ve got for you.
