That’s the question that has been banging around my head for months. I go back and forth on it. In some ways it would be fun, in others a lot of work. Would the work be worth it to me and to you my listeners?
Here’s what I’m thinking. It would be an interview podcast on model photography. There are lots of photography podcasts out there and for a Glamour Apprentice podcast to be worth it, it would have to be different from other podcasts. How to do that?
One of the things I like to focus on here on GA is the interaction between model and photographer, as well as support people like Make Up Artists. I don’t know of any other podcast that does that.
So if I do one, it will be interviews with photographers, models and MUAs on their perspectives of the creative process, how to be professional, and what differentiates a wannabe model from a real one. A GWC from a professional.
I’d also focus less on big time NY and LA photographers who are making a living shooting for magazines*, and instead focus on quality internet photographers and models.
Many of the photography interview podcasts I listen to also focus on wedding photographers, or photo journalists. My podcast wouldn’t. I want photogs that shoot models for art and for fun.
For models, I’d probably interview models I shoot, or would shoot and talk to them about the things they wish photographers knew. With the more experienced ones, I’d also find out what other models need to know.
I also wouldn’t be afraid to interview controversial choices like fine art nude, fetish, and erotic photographer and models.
In a way I have two interviews recorded. I’ve got the video interview I did with Valerie Whitaker. I also did an interview with SuperShoot’s JT Smith. Had some audio challenges with that one, which is why it isn’t available now.
I’d also take questions from you my blog readers/twitter followers for the interviews. I want to make sure you get answers to the questions you always wanted to know.
Hey, maybe I should make each guest come up with a question for the next one, possibly without knowing who it is. 🙂
What do y’all think? Does the world need another photography podcast? Would one as I describe it, be worthwhile to you?
* the Light Source podcast from studiolighting.net does that well already. My only problem with them is the audio quality of some of their interviews is so low it is painful to listen too.
