Transcript "I want people to speak out and come up with their own opinions. If I think their reasoning is stupid, then 111 argue with them. But I don't expect them to agree with me." your grasp," he said, "as long as you can conquer your fear and apply your imagination." After an incredible summer, Baldwin headed back to New York to finish school. He tried to write a book about his adventures in Europe, but found that he didn't like spending most of his time in front of a typewriter. It was then he decided that he wanted to be a photographer. After graduating, Baldwin felt an obligation to what his family expected of him. He made a half-hearted attempt to secure a 'regular job' with an advertising agency. When they offered the job to him, he said he would take it only if they doubled the salary. The agency gave the job to someone else and a relieved Baldwin headed home to Georgia and began teaching himself about photography. In six months time he had made enough money taking pictures of children to finance another trip to Europe. He set off with the intention of becoming a magazine photo journalist. But Baldwin quickly discovered that it is one thing taking pictures of children in your hometown, where everyone knows you, and quite another thing to be on the street in a foreign country.

He couldn't stand up to the competition, and besides, he wanted to do something adventurous. He had this idea about traveling with the Lapplanders on a reindeer migration, but without press credentials he couldn't get the necessary help from the Swedish foreign office. So he tried covering a European championship track event, but you have to have credentials to get into those also. "So what I did," he said, "was to scope out the situation. Charm was not going to get me in, and there was no sense of humor available to tap. I had to use some other dramatic tactic. So I went to the press office just at the height of confusion, walked in with all my cameras hanging around my neck, walked up to someone who spoke English and said, "have you got my press credentials?". The man responded, "Are you the guy from Sports Illustrated?" and I said "yes". So they handed me all the credentials for this poor guy from Sports Illustrated, and off I went."
