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.

JT has two sites, one for the Super Shoots workshops and the other a Super Shoots Networking site where workshop alum, both models and photographers, as well as other interested people communicate.
