This week we talk with Photographer Jim Warren of Vegas Alien. Jim is a Chicago based photographers with a lot of experience shooting models. While like all of our interviews we talk about style and art, he also gives advice to new photographers and models.
Listen to find out why he gets weird looks from people on the street. Where he sees missed opportunities in his own and others work. How motivation influences mistakes for new photographers and how to get past that.
Glamour Photographer Tracy Hicks is this week’s guest on the Photographer And Model Podcast.
We talk about how you view images in your portfolio and how others do. What is sexy classy and where is the line? The permanence and value of photography. What is style and what is his style. And how models react to his style.
He also talks about making models and non-models comfortable. His advice on the relationship between models and photographers is also straight to the point. Avoid the drama.
This is episode 4 of the shooting beauty model photography podcast. The one where Shawna and Ron interview Model Sallie Lou.
Sallie Lou belays the idea that model’s aren’t smart. Matter of fact she’s so intense we had trouble keeping up. We talk about modeling as a creative outlet for someone who helps train doctors. And please don’t make her bring out the autopsy stories.
We also talk about working with photographers, shoots that go well and ones that don’t. What she looks for in a photographer’s portfolio. What boobs and butts mean to her in your portfolio.
If you would like the opportunity to shoot with Sallie Lou, she will be modeling at the next two workshops from Houston Skyline Studio. She’s the model for the July workshop on Basic Lighting, and she is one of two 5 foot 10 models for the Glamour Workshop in August. The theme of the August workshop is “Two Girls At The Same Time” and Ron will be teaching how to make images of two models together.
This week we talk with Nilo Aranzamendez, promotional and club photographer, about the particular community he is a photographer for. While a relatively new photographer of models, his unique marketing background gives great insight into model career development.
The one where Ron and Shawna interview Model Tierra. Tierra talks about being wrapped in a python, having a tarantula on her face, working with other models, what makes a good photographer, what it is like to have a model boyfriend and more.
Another prequel episode, this time an interview with Photographer J T Smith of Super Shoots. JT is something of a mentor to me and I’ve attended his workshop in Las Vegas, where I got work that is still in my portfolio today.
We talk with JT about how he got started in photography, and how he ended up doing workshops. Then we talk about working with models, and some common mistakes he sees new photographers making.
This episode is something of a practice run, hence the negative two episode number. The interview was actually recorded in 2008 on video. At the time I knew I wanted to do a podcast, but not exactly the tone, theme, or focus. There is a lot of good information and interesting stories in this discussion with Valerie Whitaker, so I wanted to share it with you.
Another reasons this is a practice podcast is the audio quality. It was recorded on video with only Valerie miced with a lapel mic. Going forward quality will increase, I promise.
You can find images and video of Valerie on the Glamour Apprentice.com blog. The intro music was provided by podsafe music network. The song is called Point Break, by 42 shades of gray, which I thought sounded like a great band for a photography podcast. Especially one where I interview a fine art model that I shot a lot in black and white.
You can see more of Valerie here on the blog, or at her OMP profile.
