Jeff Vespa Saying: I always knew I was going to be an artist. It was a done deal right from when I was very little.

Sayings about Jeff Vespa: I never went to school for that. In high school we had photography, which was great. That was another moment of discovery.

Quote about Jeff Vespa: We were little children, four or five years old, but they were all around the house and they made us look epic, like we were part of some story being told. My mom would have this woman come to our house and take photos of us. She did a photo book of us as well when I was one. I still have it.

Jeff Vespa Sayings: Well, I talk about one moment in the book, but I don't know if that's my moment of discovery. It was a moment. In the book, I talk about how I started shooting, how I became a photographer.
