“I was lucky to find a wonderful teacher, a British cameraman by the name of John Baxter Peters. He had done everything, and he was a very wonderful teacher, he was a very hard worker, and I copied as best as I could what he did. He was critical, he was demanding and it was wonderful. And it also gave me experiences that were very surprising, very amazing.”
