Rod Mar's advice to young photographers was to make wherever you are "The Big Time". It was local/regional papers that made this a possibility. They also provided the avenue for young kids to enjoy a taste of the "Big Time" with local coverage of their games. Thanks to the staff of the Californian for their great coverage in Southwest Riverside County. You allowed 1000's of kids to see their name and pictures in print and get a small taste of the "Big Time"
