I've been using the Vine app for a couple months now. What is Vine? a mobile app that lets you make teeny 7 second videos and lets you do edits! and then sends them to your social media outlets. Supposedly, it lets you embed them as-is but I can't sort it out... I had to send them to You Tube so that I could show them here.
So here's my little studio for those wondering. AKA it's our garage, it's a glamorous life but someone's got to do it. My assistant Jamie is here with me in a couple of the clips. In two of the clips we were working on Ashkahn's prints at the time of filming.
I've been working on a daringly different promo series for my friend Eric Hameister for the past few months. We decided to do something sort of unheard of really... and that is send a photography promo with no image but of the story of how he got to this place through a series of the cameras used over his career.
Photography has changed A LOT in the past 20 years since he started, heck... even in the last 5 years. Gone are the gianormous car budgets, the big show [car industry people will get that reference] and sometimes even the printing [my part] but the thing that remains for photographers is the love of the craft, love of the image, and the tech know-how to get a photo to work without huge amounts of retouching.
We're trying something different and that's always the scary part, the easy part is duplicating the same effort over and over.
