“In order to be a mentor and an effective one, one must care.” – Maya Angelou
Shane Rocheleau cares a lot.
Shane and I crossed paths during my second year in college where I was a student in one of his classes. An analog photographer teaching a tech junkie. I thought it was a strange mix at first, but I soon realized the value of the contrast. In a world where I was used to the fast pace lifestyle fueled by technology, Shane slowed things down for me.
Shane is a person whose words I will carry on and pass down for generations to come. His lectures dug deeper than the realm of photography; he spoke about life, humanity and love. I was able to see the world and the people that inhabit it in a different light through the lessons he taught me.
